Man is no island
until he swallows toxicity;
but, those that in darkness lay
possess an opportunity
to discover the treasure
of lubency—

should they choose
to believe

Wise words
The overall atmosphere of this piece is that of Nostradamus
Great use of the word of the day!
Thank you

White knuckled [a tale of lubency]

       
       
Within these corrosive swamplands of all hopes lost,        
        
do I dare spy an unsuspecting beacon?        
       
A small light within,        
       
struggling to illuminate the darkened skies        
       
with flares of hopes and cares,        
       
ones that my fragile heart's lubency        
       
crosses it's own tired, bloody fingers to.        
       
"White-knuckle-gripped-hopeful"        
       
mixes with my own particular brand of        
       
humanity's        
       
"this is for your own good"        
       
type of greed.        
       
A beacon we might not all agree with        
       
or 100% want        
       
but without any doubt we all,        
       
Yes we ALL ,        
       
direly need        
       
A need derived from this calamity of a        
       
shit storm that surrounds... compounds us

~Rainy Season Is Nigh! ~  
(*rings bell wearing sandwich board)
 
So I will choose and follow that small glowing
 
flicker, and it's good hearted Illumination to
 
navigate me
 
through the downpours....  
 
 
trying like hell to avoid all the puddles

Ode to Bishop's Filling Station

 
Rusted pump sentinels  
protect garage doors;  
pained broken windows  

Station airy;
gutted tow truck  
remains hydraulic hoisted  
short on lubency  
 
Lone daffodowndilly  
begonia of a bygone era---  
emerging from its bias  
ply tired vase  
 
Nature is back in business

The Art Of Viability With Language

Of Fluency Stating My Base Of Lubency

Without Truancy To Assist The Community

Can We Take This Opportunity To Agree

Without Ambiguity ?


Great post BW
Reading this calmed the waters inside me
It brought me into the now, placing my emotions where they needed to be

Your post insults the intelligence,  of those who contribute to this thread In a positive way.

To assume we are  under the direct power of someone that you have issue with is diminishing us as individuals.

It gives us the opportunity to spread love within this harsh world

I am requesting that you remove your post for all the reasons stated above
Appreciate your cooperation David
Much Love V



This was an innocent mistake although the complainants may not have portrayed it that way. I simply did not read the guidelines and dived right in You know what most men feel about reading the instructions for anything.

I have taken on board your stated guidelines with respect and will follow them to the letter. I apologize unreservedly and personally to you for not having read the guidelines of this tread thoroughly and firstly.

I will however take issue with you on these to statements. This, I will contact you about, privately as not to affect in any way the ethos of this thread. Needless to say, I disagree with the framing of it

Once explained I would ask you to consider removing these two statements only.

Love and Respect as always - David

Deeper Things

Each first light, misty  
opportunity disperses
our sleep into routine—
unveils the art of kaizen
 
We strive for perfection  
in the everyday mundane—
brewing a pot of tea;  
clearing our sacred space
 
asking not that others change
to suit our needs;  
but, that we walk more patiently
understanding deeper things  
~
