Gems 4.66 ii

Under an oak tree
a young girl heard music, a
  promise yet to be.
A chorus of songs,
one by one, they came.  She sang
  each song joyfully;
Every song engraved
deeply on her grateful heart
  for eternity.
Niki Flow
 
  

“There is a legend of a tribe in Africa where the birth date of a child is counted not from when they were born, nor even conceived but from the day that the child was a thought in its mother’s mind. When a woman decides that she will have a child, she goes off and sits under a tree, by herself, and listens until she can hear the song of the child that wants to come…”   -Nipun Mehta, -Embrace the Grace, Celebrate the Infinite-

IF I MIGHT SEE ANOTHER SPRING

If I might see another Spring
I’d not plant summer flowers and wait:
I’d have my crocuses at once
My leafless pink mezereons,
My chill-veined snow-drops, choicer yet
My white or azure violet,
Leaf-nested primrose; anything
To blow at once, not late.

 

If I might see another Spring
I’d listen to the daylight birds
That build their nests and pair and sing,
Nor wait for mateless nightingale;
I’d listen to the lusty herds,
The ewes with lambs as white as snow,
I’d find out music in the hail
And all the winds that blow.

 

If I might see another Spring –
Oh stinging comment on my past
That all my past results in ‘if’ –
If I might see another Spring
I’d laugh today, today is brief
I would not wait for anything:
I’d use today that cannot last,
Be glad today and sing.

Christina Georgina Rossetti
5 December 1830 – 29 December 1894, London

What Is Equal?

It is non-existent, that is “What it is”.
There is no such thing as equal.
God dealt the cards and one can only
play the hand which they are dealt, regardless
of the obstacles. Fair or unfair.
The biggest “offenders” feel no shame, they know no guilt.
They embrace only their own bigoted double standards.
Asking someone to resolve problems that they not only perpetuate,
but don’t even acknowledge, is a fruitless waste of your precious breath.
You are either of a mind of equality or you are not.
Few are persuaded to do an about face.
Children of all races, creed and colors are not BORN haters.
THEY ARE TAUGHT.
Those thoughts and beliefs of inequity become their values,
No matter how injurious they may be.

i was told to make
my blueness threefold

so i learned
to dream
only of water

i woke myself
clothed in sky

and then
i blew dry
(blaue drei)
the wet of kiss
with too many
gentle tears
of also knowing

Cord X, quiet the empty
