julie callaghan on Covid and the witch (4 hours ago)
Shallow waters seldom hide the blackened sand below
Rocks and land, erodes in tides, defiled by ebb and flow
The calmest waters, clouded up, by a river built on lies
The purest shores, shrouded over, engulfs an isle that cries
The years weep past, the time goes by, the waters seldom turn
Every second bleeds, through wasted lives, the oceans start to burn
As memories close an...

in and out
up and down
pushing and pulling
A knock on the door
beating louder and louder
waking my fibers
restless and unrelenting
Louder it knocks
anxiety levels rising
these fears in me won't subside
Breathing in and out
imagining the waves
the calming waters
I am one with them
and how they rise aga...

The Cleveland cold envelops me like cellophane,
Holding me as tight as a rigor mortis grip,
It clenches at my joints,
Constricting my movement not unlike a python,
Walking feels sluggish,
Lifting my arms is akin to moving through clay,
I revel in the uneasiness of it all,
Splattered across my face,
Despite all of the kinks the cold brings out,
A childlike wonder s...

Obliterating opaqueness opens up into sunlight.
Spiders of colour
smudge the ocean.
Lapping water creates islands
of shimmering, fuzzy warmth.
It is freeing yet connecting.
I sputter and splash amongst the crevices of land.
Floating, I am curious.
I breathe a light, cooling tranquility
and gaze as I am gently held in a sheer, cooling calm.

My fate is not in your hand
GOD makes our fates alone
Our life are surely planned
GOD feeds the ant in the stone
World is certainly small
If compared to Galaxy as shown
Whoever believes is a giant
GOD to perish the giant alone
MY heart is calm and glad
Satisfied of what I own
Whatever you earn in the dark
SURELY you'll pay it at noon

Stop, look inward.
Be aware by becoming still.
Notice your thoughts.
They are seeds.
Plant with care.
This may be difficult
because we want
but even the longest journey
a single movement.
A tower rises from
a single brick.
Don't worry about failure or success.
Step by step,

God please calm my mind
And heal my heart, I am drained
Please take away pain

Then all stops
For an infinite moment
All worries fall silent
All thoughts take rest
All wants are forgotten
All noise welcome past
As energy flows
All needs are met

O, where roams your delicate soul
Does it yet travel the seas
gliding afar with the Arctic tern
or is its delight in quieter waters
in dappled river pools or streams
Is it content to rest in the cool damp shade of the willow
watching minnows play
diving among the nymphs
and sacred lotus

This evening I am out walking
the static crackles
in the living room
and in the hallway
I lace my shoes
and go out walking
Tree-shapes calm me
dew drops kicked from blades of grass
this act cleanses things
I feel my fangs receding
sense the silence
breathe back into me
Imagine the TV glow dimming
imagine the hatred in her eyes
feel the black air cleari...

A twisted oak coiled round its self the perfect home for a mouse.
He climbed up a twisted branch and made his peace there, he built a nest of twine in the hollow center.
twine woven in brade, ants climbing up in parade. the army came to a hault and flead, they
feared for their lives and would rarther not be dead.
the stars a gemstone, the moon an ivory marble in a get jar.

Have you ever gazed into a tranqil pool?
its calm and cool, deviod of the haste and struggle.
a ripple can disturbe its calm and somehow only make it more beautiful.
life above it, below it, around it, in it. and it says ever still.
i chalenge you, find that in your citys and your towns.
weve disturbed that tranquil pool. and lost what we did not know we ever had.
... I want it b...

The Sea presses
I listen to
the languid waves
sweep onto the shore.
The water flows softly.
This is a sound that I love.
The birds glide
like a dream on the water.
With full bellies they
fly off to their
homes and babies.
