STOIC THOUGHTS‏

Writing is useful,but does it come out as maniacal or insane,is hard to express a simple thought without showing the depths it was wrought. a gain is my own, almost selfish rarely ever shown. when all the cards are on the table it is had to be a magician.
The play with words & sounds become increasingly centered, a hope for focus, a wish to not be led astray ,to far away from the conscious edge while still seeking an epiphany .
That transition is easier to live as a lifestyle,rather than holding back ,better to know the truth than to hide from the present ,how many sit with it or are afraid or find it vile.
A corruption of thoughts & feelings or convoluted dreams can be dealt with stoically or possibly handled & fondled serving as a gift to the mind & soul that are willing to own them.

Hi
Your welcome, I guess I needed to throw something out,truthfully have not been writing enough or in my usual fashion leaving many,many things open ended or rather incomplete.
sometimes I may lose the original thought, or at least yrs back the therapeutic side of it, is the opposite effect ,leaving me focusing on the problem or mind set that led me to write them down in the 1st place :)

Forgive some of my rambling,not always perfect grammar or writing,but the free minded thoughts of a mind & body sometimes working on different planes . Peace. Thanks Rick

Very nice ...

I've enjoyed writing since I was 15. I was suffering and had no one to speak with about it. It helped to get it all out. It looked insane and I'm always amazed to read back. Unfortunately I threw out much of it. Thought I had it secured on Computer only to watch it all disappear.

Sometimes you just can't get all the details as we once knew them. Time takes some of our memory and hormones muck with our concentration.

I do a lot of brainstorming. Truth be known.... the only things I've successfully written, outside journalizing (sp?) is ... Titles. I have a story for each. I guess I should really consider a big book of Short Stories. I've traveled and lived a life many will never believe or relate to.

I need a reason to put it all together. I'd like to think it could help another that is trying to walk through similar circumstances. I'd like to show them some more mistakes we didn't already learn from others. It shouldn't be so complicated to survive our life times,... but if we travel alone ... It's a serious challenge.

Rick,
So many ramble and say so little of nothing. I appreciate writers and speakers such as yourself. You have so much of value to share with us and I look forward to it most of the time. There are certain threads I don't want to read, but I do try to check out all your notes.

You are forthright without all the worry so many seem to have about showing us the real being behind the Alias's we all create out here. I like that you used your name and I don't mind they know mine. So many truly don't want us to feel who they are or what they believe.

:)

DAYS LIKE THESE‏
Jumpin around a bit. maybe purposely not trying to hard to focus to deep.
Sometimes the synonyms become to obvious,the relation to the emotion
or relation to a sensation ,be it elation or degradation ,I stammer or clammer
the rises come as surprises ,a slow glow ,evenly as a flow ,downward spiral
settling for a plateau ,the normal is never formal ,the feeling often stagnate awaiting the reeling. in reaching to deep prices paid,to deep.with no real benefit to reap. let it creep a harsh wall so steep, the deepest resolution never a complete conclusion, maybe the verse can work can be a curse or work in reverse ,doing it's job in bringing Harmony to my soul.

SIMPLE SILENCE‏

The silence can be deafening .
Do we await the internal ping of neurons bouncing on the hardness of our cranium ,is the scream to break the silence, it's hanging weighty glow
Are the awaiting voices an illusion a delusion or will they become the conclusion
Many would be aghast & how long the silence can last ,most do not have the model in memories of their past.
The rambling ,pitches & tones, languages,a word for every movement,object color or sound never to realize how the simple silence can become so profound.

I am NOT a poet, but, in honor of the talent that you all have, and I do not, I will try for you!

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I will cook dinner,
And makes lots of dishes for you!

Have a great day!

LIFE AS A MESSAGE
t may come in on a mild warm wind ,if your listening for a message I want to send
Will you receive the happy & meager smile or be brought into a view of pain
a mind can play endless tricks of passion or glory,playing equal part when given consent
Living to perfection or appeasing hearts not our own,leaves an open gap without ever seeing a gain.

Life as a message or is it just for us,we go about the day,wonder on our way
A simple grain or profound & prolific,was it meant to be something or just to pass time
Starts with a breath a sudden flush & rush of life giving blood,it all begins an a clock that gets to stop whenever it sees fit
Making a way, some very restless others always stay,others stand by & only kneel & pray
A simple manner or a special appeal ,playing simple or with with great zeal
forever continuing in a wondrous path laughing under the covers never feeling anyone's wrath

Do we send a message now as we live & interact to make us easier to recognize in another's memory
Write it all down in a hidden diary ,showing one side to the world but another in the mirror
Will the flash back in their mind be real,bland or beige or possibly complimentary
One day to thousands then the presence builds , lasting past or just a blink & an error? Rick

Here mid the ripest, rawest thoughts

we touch the silk smooth skin of

luscious fruited feasts to come

My feet are barely placed to dance

such mischief needs in teasing taste -

that call of honeyed saffron sway

Breeze blows the heady mix of

man and mate, full awed of now

on bed daubed sweet in midnight's stir

The blade awaits its stealthy move,

soft sighs, then powders space to dust

and, sighing low, we start to melt

Our table set and scented tallow lit

stars gasp full argent paused applause,

we wait, anticipate.. and eat yet more
