Notes found on the refrigerator July 2019

04 Aug

Oh, again,

when ever I step, I have to think

and decide to act—

I flash, without feelings

other than—

being on the spot I am.

 

I haven’t gone anywhere.

Except to stay on the path

I’m on. 😊

~~~~~

 

Nothin’ ain’t worth nothin’

since its for free!

nothin’ sometimes comes

with a fee!

let’s dismiss it, as far as the eye can see!

and shake off the shit at our ankles

to go after somethin’

that’s really free!

I’m enjoyin’ myself… 😊

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

the harlot of wisdom:

into every dream—

she floats in the shadows of the moon.

her eyes, often mistaken for stars

looks into your eyes through your heart;

that has become void, now filled with compassion,

neutralizing self-prominence into acceptance.

and, if you awaken

she has kissed you at daybreak.

     ~~~~~~~~~

 

 

seeking an answer in faith, gives you strength

to enter into a question, with confidence.

(left to provident care)

—that you will find the best possible answer, unimagined.

 

(unless you stumble and become incoherent

seeking personal gain).

 

*******

it is difficult to eat alone

to buy and cook one portion

for yourself.

it does however,

keep the silver on the spoon

and loneliness on the shelf;

or as left over’s

 in the refrigerator.

 

 

then again,

sharing it with another,

never spoils.

as I remember.

     ~~~~~

 

every morning awakens in an evenings’ crease;

a day in all its beauty—

with confidence, not arrogance,

arrives in peace

on the path before destiny.

*****

    Your fridge notes are always fascinating and entertaining. They make me want to try something of the sort … but then I forget, and it remains your genre. 🙂
