The Smart Bird…

“What does evil look like to crows from up in the sky? They’re brave enough to play hide-and-seek with it.” Leah Weiss, If the Creek Don’t Rise        (Yes, a smart bird all agree, still akin to a vulture to me)


Ill wind blows…

“It’s an ill wind that blows no one any good.” Thomas Tasser, 1580

Speak the truth…or we perish

In battling evil, excess is good for he who is moderate in announcing the truth is presenting half-truth. He conceals the other half out of fear of the people’s wrath.

Kahlil Gabran



the sentinel against the storm….

the sentinel stands

silently we go along

insanity looms

dealing with the devil

ignorance or arrogance

either way chaos



Darkness approaches….

Difficult to contemplate…the temptation, the impulse is to turn away and draw upon one’s need for love, harmony. The daffodils push up and offer hope. But, almost like a false Spring, the evil on the horizon cannot be ignored much longer. We are so tired of conflict. We quickly offer excuses for evil. Quick to blame ourselves as a whole than come to terms with profound darkness looming on the horizon. It comes and all one’s reflexive ‘blame us first’ will be swept aside in the realization that only a very dark response will crush like darkness taking our minds and hearts into long forbidden realms of reality. 


Beheadings, incineration in a cage, children waiting to be burned alive…hard to write feel good encouragements, while we go to great lengths to ignore and lack the moral clarity to denounce true evil in our midst. We turn upon ourselves in almost orchestrated distractions of name calling and indignation over self absorbed life styles.

I don’t expect many ‘likes’ or supportive comments for a post like this. Most will turn away, staying immersed in their positive karma bubble. Some will stop following. Some may even chastise with the reflexive admonitions.

I am disgusted by what I see. Islam’s evil spawn abroad and in our midst must be called out and denounced. Weak kneed sympathizers & apologists will rue the days they listened to the manipulative Muslim Brotherhood & CAIR. Allow yourself to be more than sad or aghast when the children are torched in the cage. Get fucking mad!

I want to just study the daffodils, the new growth on the roses and smell the daphne. Their beauty seems less able to offer escape today. My warrior instincts stir when all I want to do is see the roses bloom or watch the geese fly over head returning to the nearby fields.


Faint shadows…

Why the out pouring of sentiments?

Little children being held as human shields by terrorists…Christians being crucified, beheaded, denigrated…hundreds of Yazidi villagers buried alive by terrorists…ebola…a resurgence of fascism…a seeming conflagration waiting to burst forth and consume more innocents. This daily onslaught of devastation, that also masks and blurs the dilution of our liberties, makes one turn away, sooner or later, out of a sense of powerlessness, anger, numbness and overload. Turn toward gentler, kinder, soulful outlets that renew our minds, our hearts, our very soul in the face of evil, in a loving cocoon.  

So, when the passings of these creative souls takes place it is a thump to the chest, the gut. These are our refuges from out there. From evil, yes evil. It is a loss that intrudes on our gentle trance of joy and satisfaction. This week, I have felt this more than usual. It is in proportion to the outrage and futility I feel when ever I turn out toward danger, devastation, incompetence and brutality.

I am not one for sticking my head in the sand and ignoring reality. But, I have so loved escaping to those kind souls who live and breathe decency and dignity in the face of darkness. I pray, as events unfold, that I will carry on this spark of kindness even as I turn back toward the chaos I see. Seriously thank all of you that seek and give that gentle nudge toward love, softness and giving.
