SOFT EYES

Gave up the transcendental to focussing
To understanding, judgement, discussion
Stuck in a selfness – The way of the dodo
The all too present hesitant typist pauses

This “poet” – As they’re taught to name us
Personally ever wary of such sticky labels
(Checkout-imposed) trumpeting name tags
Declaring an identity at the cost of privacy

Recalls unwished those dread and dreadful
Sogenannten training days back in the day
Those ten plates cunningly kept spinning
So full, so full of oneself one overflows …

Withdraws for still appalled from that melée
Switches to soft eyes to reflect on the times
We’d rather get caught up as in the moment
Loosing perspective, accessing the message

This is it – Give it some welly – For this is it
For this age is a mess – Often not here at all
Simply living life as life lives us as if aimless
Directionless – God knows who’s at the wheel

No judge beyond the blowup clown up front
Let go of all that – Fight battles all your own
Checking your watch every now and again
And again and again and again till it’s time

To awaken to this smiling, winking
Welcoming bear hug of an acrostic

Having
Opened
My
Eyes

*’the soft eyes principle has long been taught as a central precept in various martial arts, like Aikido and Tai Chi Chu’an.

Where’s Alice?: The Multiverse Revealed

Phew

Exploring Alura

Alice’s Notes to Mirror Walkers:

Time is really picking up speed and moving along at such a rapid pace. Time is really setting his mind on creating this peaceful reality we’ve all hoped would someday be ours to know. Time has come and the Time is now. Who do you see when you look in the mirror?

Princess Mary Jane Blossom’s retelling of Alice’s tale:

Things are happening. The Multiverse is really spinning differently these days. Actually spinning would be the term for how things used to go. The Multiverse used to revolve around The Realm of God and gods. That ended when Princess Mary Jane Blossom of the PMJB Realm, Stan MF’in Lee of Stan Lee’s Superhero Realm, and Skatman of Skatmand Land came together to peacefully overlap their realities in a joint effort to resolve their issues. When they came together, reality changed and…

Once contact
Replaces labels
– Like a costume
– Like a mask
Fall away

For why need
One name or other?

Ill-judged attempts
To define or

For shame: betrayal
Of such an intimacy
Or such unwarranted
Self-aggrandisement

Gratitude and mystery
Sprout soaring wings
Escape the net of words

Shero, Malala Yousafzai

Kindred we.

Sunshiny SA Site

A “Shero” is a “woman admired for her courage, achievements, or noble qualities”.

Once such young woman is Malala Yousafzai who defied the Taliban as a girl in Pakistan. Why? Young Malala is an advocate for women’s education. She was committed to speaking about their right to education. Tthe Taliban issued death threats against her. but Malala did not believe that the Taliban would hurt children.  Some three months later, 15 year old  Malala survived the gunshot wound to her head. The Taliban made good on their treat by shooting Malala and two other school girls.

Passionate about education, Malala began blogging for the BBC, under the alias Gul Makai, about living under the Taliban’s threats to deny them an education.  She was soon found out.

There we were one
You and I back
Beyond the veil
Still unsundered

While here manifest
To display abundantly
And blindly enjoy
One another as separate

REFUGE

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

I take refuge in the spirit that surrounds me
I take refuge in the spirit within me
I take refuge in the path I am travelling
I take refuge in my companions on the path

SUGAR FOR SALT

May you ever travel peacefully
And with worthy companions
Be sure never to let your fear
Seed hatred toward others
May you ever travel peacefully
And with worthy companions

May you ever travel peacefully
And with worthy companions
If you’re not part of the solution
Then you’re part of the problem
May you ever travel peacefully
And with worthy companions
