All That Matters Now

(1)

I hear the leaves blow
Against our door tonight.
Dry leaves passing by,
Scratching against our winter door.

Sometimes I look up thinking, “She’s home”.

But it’s only a creak in the door,
And the leaves, the scratching leaves.

There are Ghosts in Every Heart

The air is warmer
Than the spring tonight,
Cooler than the summer.

A half-moon has risen
But I cannot recall
Whether it waxes or it wanes.

It is three in the morning and thunder
Is rolling off the mountains,
There is lightening to the North.

The American Costume Party

Flashing lights explode in your eyes
Like colored shrapnel.

Second by second,
Attacking music shakes your eardrums
Near to goo.

Now and then, but rarely
Some woman dances
Her authentic sexuality,

Burn a Candle Against the Night

Light a stick of jasmine tonight
And I will light one too.

And another near the mountains.

Is not jasmine the same scent for everyone?

Burn a tapering candle tonight

I Believe an Apology is in Order…

Dear Reader,

Much to my considerable alarm and dismay, I have within the past few months become increasingly busy — until nowadays, I am busier than at any other time in the past 26 years.

Indeed, things are beginning to take on the horrifying appearance of an honest job!

Worse, I have no exit plan!

And to cap it all, my time management skills are rusty as hell.   Consequently, I am behind in everything, including responding to the comments on my posts.

I’m trying to regain some of my old TM skills, but the struggle is a bit uphill at the moment.  My apologies for not getting around to responding to comments as quickly as I would like.

Hopefully, I will be able to improve on that soon.  In the meantime, please be assured that I am reading every comment.  Even Teresum’s comments.

I hope all is well with you,

Paul

A Charming Meme

img_20190604_2235552608039702440272397 222222222222

I found this charming and amusing meme on Jyoti’s blog. Check it out here.  At first, I was a bit confused and thought Jyoti had come up with the saying herself.  But as it happens, there are several variations on this meme to be found on the net.  I happen to like the variation I found on Jyoti’s blog the best, and which you see above.
