October Country
October Country's the darkened moonlight sky is reflected in your eyes.
You have nothing hidden, and do not wear a disguise.
Whenever did you learn wisdom, and the golden keys
to becoming wise?  You no longer are easier to know.

Stick To The Script
Jesus died
for not sticking
to the script;

what makes us 
uncomfortable
too often
we crucify--

protection is 
armor of 
the ego--

though a 
winner 
of battles,
a loser of 
wars…....Read More

Words of wisdom
Patience is a virtue
Hope is only advice
Yet the words are powerful
But power can be deceitful,
Cold, hungry and greedy.

How can one have happience?
When they continuously miss what stands in front,
When they try to please the unpleasable?
Then crumble when they fail?

Why to...Read More

Wisdom resides in the meaning
Of my name, for most females are naturally wise.
More compassion have I than masculinity provides.
A warmth shines forth from my blue-grey eyes.
Not domineering like those in the macho throng.
Lover of lavender, lace and romance am I...Read More

Premium Member Who Creates Mess
In the grace of the future.

Nature needs to nurture.

Our wisdom is so intricate.

We pollute then forget.



Then we blame others.

For polluting nature.

But when it comes to us.

It's alright, it sometimes happens.



Such is our mindset.

If we do, it's ok.

But for the rest.

We...Read More

In meditation for humility compassion and lasting peace

"A Rainbow in My Clouds"



Do you think 
you are better?
Yes you follow the rules 
like a good girl

of modesty 
self righteousness
genuflecting before fools

Look outside the Circle ;

What you're standing within,
it’s an old boring closed tool 
you run around inside

The Path
There are many paths to take in life...none are set in stone.
The wrong path can lead you astray...and leave you all alone.

The very first social worker...was brought to this world for you.

Grace
Who is this woman of Grace?
When she looks, she sees
A golden flame in her right
A glowing ember in her left
Windows to her soul
Her mysteries slowly revealed

When she listens, she hears
An enquiring mind, indeed
Every woken minute wisely used
Keen to learn, explore...Read More

It Will Never Be Enough
They claim that you were ‘outdated,’
old-fashioned and ‘not with the times,’
because you hesitated to
give up traditions of your kind.
They claimed new was always better,
that you weren’t on history’s side.
You noticed their way rarely worked,
“Reactionary!” they all cried.
Your life already had...Read More

Speak Wisdom
E-arnestly speak wisdom, 
R-egarding any matter; 
I-ntelligence in idioms
N-ever annoys the listener.

S-peak wisdom with conviction, 
O-n the famous quotes; 
R-ecite them very clear, 
I-n the absence of speech coach.
A-ny nice expression gives
N-o tedium or boredom;

‘Do not be envious.

Between which the living sway, search and pray,

Sometimes I don't want to get out of bed.
