Notes Found On The Refrigerator: Autumn 2016

03 Dec

Don’t run away, unless you know where you are going.

Everyone should have an acceptance, and, an exit plan.

   *****

Bottom Of The Glass: 

…as long as I could see the bottom of the glass,

I would pour myself another drink;

Seeing my reflection

At the bottom of the glass

Sometimes dithered me though.

So, at some point,

I would leave the glass half-full.

*****

Love’s Encouragement:

(Inhale)

It is time we move on

from where we met

 to where we were suppose

 (exhale)

to  meet.

(Breath)

Hold my hand, we’ll search our memory,

and find our way.

(Inhale)

It is time we move on

from where we met

 to where we were suppose

 (exhale)

to  meet.

*****

Enlightenment’s Rock And Roll:

Often,

Silence is a noise we try to avoid.

Whether in conversation, in loneliness,

Or worst, when we are bored.

Yet,

When it is present, it opens the windows

With no mind. To a space quietly making music

To no one, in no place, for nothing.

So, before accepting it,

We kiss our mind gently good-bye;

And escape through the window, with our soul,

To join the dance, to the music of enlightenment’s

Rock and Roll.

    So, before accepting it,
    We kiss our mind gently good-bye;
    And escape through the window, with our soul,

    It is important that one is in control. A Plan B of escape is essential as one is more confident when one is prepared!

    Love your thoughts, and a glass left half-full can be a good idea sometimes.

    I love “Hold my hand….we’ll find our way.” A lovely invitation, and reassurance. I really dig “the music of enlightenment’s rock and roll”. Good one!

    I enjoyed all of these. The humour of the first captured me at once; the second was intriguing; the third deep and beautiful; and all presenting particular truths.

    I like the idea that everyone should have an acceptance and an exit plan. So very true of any situation, ZQ.

    I liked “Love’s Encouragement” as well. I find myself coming and going amidst your words, wondering if all meetings happen….that way! Smiles.

    That’s a more interesting refrigerator than mine is! It cuts through the silence, it reminds always a poet is in the house … or was, but escaped.

    Love that your thoughts made me stop and listen, then escape with my soul alive and breathing,

    Silence while staring at the bottom of the glass and breathing deeply in and out.

    “We kiss our mind gently good-bye; / And escape through the window, with our soul,” beautiful thoughts…

    i wonder if that glass was a looking glass.. as if seeing your reflection opened out the stories inside.. i think it may well be.. and also thank you for your wonderful comment!

    Glasses half-full are nice on the liver… and great for the storage of brewing imagination.

    You have a wise refrigerator. Mine says things like Milk, and Kale. A little like me I guess, concerned with what’s going on inside. I especially like the breathing o loves encouragement.
