I may be known as an entity
Fear not for your soul – though you may be left with a serious case of dysentry.
It’s hard to tell if truth is what people want.
Franchement, I think it’s a habit conditioned by the school of the hard knock.
Supposed to mellow with age
wildness happy to forage
My abode is where it chooses to graze.
I’m not a sheep
Nor a bear
I’m a goat.
my thumbs oppose falling into line with most folk.
My every day hustling makes me wonder
if Beetlejuice would called his aside ‘everyday scuttling’..
That’s just some thought exhaled from an after toke
Time to get Kaned with Sarah
I’m craving for a skin
Youth taught my body lusts after your version of sin.
It Could be a human or another entity
Perhaps the rambling has walked me in into
a Constable painting
Dear lord – nature is so fascinating.
Take me somewhere closer to my element
prefer to bathe in baskets of oceans.
I startle my self with the ability to form words
Nah – Apple found Eve – awoke her next of kin.
Mothers living with C.O.P.D.
need to breathe -allow the light to stay a little bit dim.
Not a metaphor for simple minded grey matter
Genuine love for those I lose to mortality .
Life is closer to Death than a rattle
snowed under morphine
Is it painful to choke on your own saliva?
I admit it looks grim.
I’m not a fan of a cadaver.
I’ve applied make up to my dead grandmother
wondered if she was ever alive or if I made her up
Parchments of a book – I supposedly read.
The break down is hurtful.
Hold my tongue
the insults pierce my heart
Trample it for being a erratic , thick skinned heretic.
Words fail me – I drift from the moment.
I pray to a god I don’t believe in.
I chant Allah’s name if it heals my mother from Death’s protege reaper.
Naive – I pray for the book thief to recount what it feels like to take a soul from this world.
Life is never easy
Oddly I thrive from suffering.
Maybe not all of us are meant to couple up
Some of us are here to show how to strive as one,
give hope to those who think a partner will make life easier to swallow.
I prefer to spit – mind my manners
Words are my only defense mechanism.
Call me a dreamer
but make sure you top up my grave with grains of she knew about reality .
Authentic chants – rise
Her passion stirred
shreaked from her initial gestation.I have a heart imprinted with carbon loaded memories
I don’t answer to the various names about my failures.
I’m the fallible one – who let a doctor murder my 5 month old son;
Then gave life to a child
She reminds me to breath again
How to end and begin?
Take it from me not all females can multitask.
Bob Marley had the wailers
I have my thoughts , emotions and chaos.
I get through –
close my eyes
wake up to a
another day –
face to face with my never ending pile of litter to get done.
My latest recorded spoken word. It’s rather amateur. It’s also rather fun! RAH!
Have a fab weekend. Do what you got to do to keep that heart alive – peace out!
‘If it is true that soulmates should forever, always remain happy together.
Likewise,forever, together, is a long time for soulmates to remain happy together.’
*EPIC GRINGE* but I have hit publish.. How did I do?
Definitions for chiasmus
Rhetoric. a reversal in the order of words in two otherwise parallel phrases, as in “He went to the country, to the town went she.”
Citations for chiasmus
What Phillips likes best, however, is wordplay. Inversion, circumlocution, alliteration, assonance, chiasmus, paradox: there’s nothing he doesn’t go in for. “The unexamined life is surely worth living, but is the unlived life worth examining?”
One well-known example of chiasmus is Quintillian’s purported phrase “one does not (a) live to (b) eat; one (b) eats to (a) live.” … Other examples are Mae West’s “it’s not the men in my life [that matter], it’s the life in my men.” And then there is President John F. Kennedy’s famous phrase, “ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”
“There have to be new words
to explain new worlds.”

WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS QUOTE?
I’m trying out something different. A new challenge. This for me is about changing my style and approach, pushing me to do more and become stronger in my thinking and my writing. I did NaNoWriMo last November and I had to push myself harder than I ever have with writing fiction- based on what I know 😀 So I have a half-finished draft for a book. It’s more than I had in October 2015. See? it needs tons of work but it is there. I have worked.
The Blogging from A-Z April challenge starts today. There is still time to challenge yourself and do it. 🙂 – this challenge requires a different writing approach. I’m writing about something that has the power to grab hold of my emotions and make me cry, get angry, make me want scream.
I love the simplicity and power of this quote. We share much in common but the smaller the world becomes the more we come into contact with people who have a different way of doing things. We need to use different words to explain or teach or learn about ourselves and new parts of the world that we discover.
Look at what a loss it be would have if there was no pig Latin in the world – had to get one in there. 😉 😀
It’s Friday my flowers ………Tra la la la la la la laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
I’ve got another date night with my sexier half on Saturday night:D. .We are writing personal vows- scary! and we are hunting down wedding rings..
Anybody,doing anything this weekend who can my top my wedding duties on Date night? Ha ha 🙂
So have a good one. Look out for my BLogging challenge -A-Z post. Support me please. 😀
muchus gracias , these are for you :
The globe is spinning and spinning and today we stop off in China. Again. These people know how to be happy.
SECRET TO HAPPINESS: CONSIDER HOLDING YOUR TONGUE AND WORDS BEFORE SOMEBODY TAKES THEM TO HEART
TRADITION: CHI KOU RI (‘day of dispute’)
DATE: CHINESE LUNAR NEW YEAR (January/February
CELEBRATED IN: CHINA
The amount of times I think to myself, I would rather be honest than feel like a fraud. I’ve learned over the years that sometimes it’s not my place to tell the truth as I see it. It’s not my place to be blunt and honour my character and personality. . Words can hurt people. Speaking my mind has consequences and they are not always positive. I am beginning to realise that some people are more sensitive and blunt words from me (not knowing the whole story) is like an arrow to the heart. I’m realising that just because I think I know a part of the truth of something or someone’s situation -maybe it is not my place to say it.
I’ve always struggled with:
Do I be honest? OR Do I kind?
Of course I want to be both. I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking this. Sometimes weighing up the options is hard. It’s tough getting the right balance.
I’ve said things to people – matter of factly and I look at the response on their faces and I’ve seen tears form in their eyes. BIG OOPS! That was not how I meant it to go.
In China there is a saying:
The Chinese understand that when water is spilt it cannot be re-collected. I did a post on the Chinese Lunar year –Givers: the ones who taught us. The festival can last up to a month. One of the days celebrated is called ‘Day of Dispute’. It’s a day where the Chinese consciously honour that ‘ critical pause’ that happens just between out impulses and how we express those impulses.
Throughout the days that the celebrations take place, Spring festival is buzzing with parties and abundance and indulging. Plenty of food and drink consumed.
Day 3: The third day of the Chinese New year commonly known as “Chi Kou Ri” (the day of red mouth) is the day to stay at home. Older members of the family who are superstitious believe that a red mouth would result in arguments and quarrel. They also call this day “Chi Gou Ri” meaning (the day of red dog). Traditionally, anyone who runs into the red dog will encounter bad thingshttp://carlgene.com/blog/2010/12/33-proverbs-that-translate-well-between-english-and-mandarin/
On this day people go home early. They may go and pray at a local temple, they go inwards to regain balance and inner harmony.
There is so much to learn from this. Next time the bubbles of rage float upwards, ready to create and release from out of your mouth,a huge cartoon- like bubble of ‘what’s on my mind’ speech.
Try inhaling and counting to three or even better look to the sky or around you to get a sense of the worlds true immensity. If you do decide to act on your thoughts and speak- speak slowly and try to consider the impact of your words as you speak. Be conscious in that moment- Remember how vast the world is and how small this discussion is compared to the world.
If you can pause and weigh up the worth of your words before speaking,usually you will be able to come up with wiser and a more gentle speech of words.
One other tip- always get a good night sleep — there is evidence that we make a better judgements when our pre frontal cortex is happy and chilled. 😉
prefrontal cortex (PFC) is located in the very front of the brain, just behind the forehead. In charge of abstract thinking and thought analysis, it is also responsible for regulating behavior. This includes mediating conflicting thoughts, making choices between right and wrong, and predicting the probable outcomes of actions or events. This brain area also governs social control, such as suppressing emotional or sexual urges. Since the prefrontal cortex is the brain center responsible for taking in data through the body’s senses and deciding on actions, it is most strongly implicated in human qualities like consciousness, general intelligence, and
