My Blured Hope
My foot is four legs of a tortoise
My thump is anchor of my docking
My reason is the traffic light of red lights only
My patience is the hand break of a vehicle

Their ‘batakari’ has wings to fly over me
Their worm-length’s shape...Read More

I’m so done with the way, 
This community stays,
We talk about change,
But look the other way,
All this deviation,
From the people of this nation, 
Is causing all of this perturbations. 
Being a woman is a sin,
Be thin, Be thick, Be...Read More

Dismissing such as trivial
Yet we’re affected by its being viral…
While forecasting its flippant survival
We’re anxious to find its trending rival.

If someone had told me, when in past Beatnik twenties
That in 50 years’ time, I would be here where I find myself today…

Grand Howl for the Sea

Oh I howl!

Growling and hissing you must face your responsibilities!

Indebted to a society into which my debts never seem to end.

Thanks to all those brave souls,
the trail blazers
that has gone before us.
They who fell in love,
back when white society
wasn't so excepting or
was intolerant of mix marriage.
Love is made of tough stuff,
couples had it ruff.
So, for a while, some lovers even

"My decision
is not any negative reflection
on you.
It's not personal."

This would be a Business School graduate,
meaning, if it is personal,
then it is not political or economic.

My Christmas gift
Dear Santa
It's been a year since I last wrote to you
Time, so like a river flow,
Went on its way,
Pulling me and my raft along with it
Causing me to enjoy my ride at times
And nearly drowning me in its currents
At others!

Don't Love Me
I don't know if I told you this already, 
But it is a mistake to love me. 
My parents did. They now regret it. 
My Grandma did. Now she's in pain. 
My family loved me, now they reject me.

Me Myself and I
My self-awareness is clear.
It's ugly and painful. To call it enlightening, is putting it lightly.
Honestly though, it's relieving, intriguing, and totally necessary. 
Character building, and damn near life-saving.
They say "seeing is believing"... But what about these feelings? 
The temporary,...Read More

Premium Member As Yet Unresolved
We so carefully respect the boundary
Placed around us by society
A sly smile, a covert glance
That we cannot name romance
For rules it's wrong, for souls it's right
As we slip into the deep night
And discover each other
I boil to be your lover
I'm...Read More

You march calling for taxes on

I saw the bitter tears of unhappiness
Running down your agonizing face,
Ravaged with pain,

And I became a sponge of compassion
To absorb them.

I heard the howling 
Of your starving stomach,
Echoing throughout your rebellious drained veins,

And I became a sweet loaf of bread

Premium Member The Soul Musician
I was gratefully listening
to a theologian musician
repeat a rabbinic tradition
of four levels of resonant soul:
individual (egosystemic),
communal (local),
social (cultural, national identity)
global (Earth,ecosystemic).

A mature musician,
like a wise theologian,
sees these four soul identities
as circular
double-binding octaves,
mutually informing up
and down,
and out.

As EarthMother's original staging womb
