Desolation Snow

Love, even lost;  never a waste.

Love, never realised;  a waste most desolate. 
Love, kept alive; a magic only few know it's  spell.

While She See'd The Other She Saw'd

I see said She...
what do you see?, said the other She;
more than I should and less than I want to, said the first She. 
The other She said, ah I see...
Now the two She's see, 
What the first She saw,
See-Saw seeing.

Heart From The Art

I was looking at a piece of wall  art this week. Once over I would have purchased it. I have even been known to design a whole room round an art piece. 

Sniffed and sniffed, I couldn’t smell the leaves although skilfully replicated and so appeared real.

On walking my dog in the fields, I found the smell I was looking for.... 

Life, my life. 

I think now in looking at a piece of art, I marvel at the artist’s skill and wonder why their work may begin to move me and draw me in, when the piece never moves. 

If I feast my eyes, long and hard enough in a crowd of people; I will catch an enigmatic smile to rival the Mona Lisa or even the bleak tortured look in Vincent Van Gogh’s eyes. City Life has them all. 

4D we don’t have it for long. 

Posessions sought over and above what we need, enslave us.

When Sleep won't come
Despite a need
When fear will grow
Despite bravado
When all else fails
Despite great efforts
When you aren't there
Despite your word
Then screams resound
Despite my silence.
Yet still existing
Despite myself..

It serves as a reminder, that a small wasted life is no less useful in natures' grand scheme.  Even Tumbleweed has its place.

Well Kept Secrets

We forget 
in looking
with eyes 
and not 
our minds,
to feel 
the depth
of what 
is presented
before us 
Then in 
what is 
above us 
that shaped 
us all.
Look to 
the sky.
There is
hidden truth 
up there,
waiting and
knowing all.

Lust For Life

Are we sitting comfortably?

Once upon a time
People Lived Happily ever after.

It was Grimm

The End

Natural being favours my state of mind;
that door is closed to all but few.
Bare naked souls apply within;
or do not, if you are without.

Narcissistic exhibitionist reveal yourself;
you are never at one with nature..
why do you not wish to blend?
Not seeing, though ever seen.

Home Grown Philosophy #1

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus.


Women just need to learn how  to fart gratuitously and men need to learn how to giggle.

Some men can't be left alone with their dicks for more than  five minutes and some women can't be left alone with their thoughts for  the same amount of time

So what have we learned?

We don't have to fly to other planets now, to discover that.... do we?

The Cafe

The window reflects me
Those people do not
This woman is waiting
That's all as it should be
That window shows all
Then its purpose is served
This woman was not
