Heads or Tails

Peace eagles known as vultures
Round the region fly
Waiting watching ventures
Develop and comply

The enterprise of living
A risk and open gamble
Seen as very normal
Inspiration the preamble*

It matters not the outcome
Fortune or fall flat
The peace eagle is patient
Knowing where you're at

It's OK if you make it
It's OK if you must fail
The peace eagle is neutral
Removing remnants
Heads or tails.

-Eve Featherstone

*Preamble - an introductory statement; preface; introduction

Creation Blueprint

Humans share a creation blueprint with bees, bismuth, and tulips as well as countless other plants, animals minerals and creations centered in 3's and 6's.

We are all different layers of the same spreadsheet with hidden and interdependent equations.

Low in the Trough

Landing safely
No longer aloft
Integrate beauty
Low in the trough*

For the domestic
To feed then upon
Seeping on into
The system at large

Making a change to
Finally assuage**
Mysterious reasons
For being here named.

Deep Personal Wisdom

We all have a deep, personal wisdom within ourselves.  At any time, it is available to us, if we can just take the time in silence to sit with it and listen, instead of telling it what we "think".

Emotion's Grand Agenda

Which kind of crying wins the
Prize for being worst?
Is it tears of heartbreak?
Or tears from anger's hurt?

Perhaps the tears of helplessness
Perhaps the tears of shame
Perhaps these great expressions
Aren't here for us to tame?

Loss and shock are the contenders
For the winning prize
Of emotion's grand agenda
Shattered then despised.

Bitter Pill of Ugly

A bitter realization
A bitter sight to see
A bitter contrast chosen
To purge out who I AM

Returning to myself here
Mostly good and kind
In contrast to bad memories
There hadn't been a cost

A steep disturbing circumstance
Drove right upside our car
It looked me in the eye
It shook me to the core

A hot volcano of grief
Helplessness and shame
Shame for reacting with grief
Helpless to relieve

The bitter pill of ugly
Hidden from public view
Consumed readily by masses
Who'd puke if they only knew

The Goddess in me
Wishes to banish and lay bare
The parasitic people on
Heartland's apron who

Traffic gentle animals
Each doing their own part
Desperate for a living
What we humans consume
Is awful, dreadful dark.
