In a lifetime
of thoughts now lost
and on that day
where the sands of your time
cease to trickle down
upon the floor of life
nothing is the something
you bring to mind
in hope for that last clear view
over the dark and shear wall
of unknown futures to come.
 
Blurring visions
of excused moments
and opportunities missed
blitz the screen that flickers dim
behind your slowly closing eyes within your mind
bringing you to the base
of that dark tomorrow
in which you fail to find relief
or a chance to breathe a breath
as you could in your youth
and glimpse the light of hope
rising above the cresting peak
of a life’s fortunes made
before the ending of your worldly time.
 
And where in this moment
is an individuals sanity to be found
perhaps within a single point of view
that in a rain of lifelong emotions showers
one drop of hope will fall for you
within which will be found that hopeful seed
of prosperity which guides you
as it grows along the way in this life
to emotions rest and your sanity found.

Catching up is fun too... Try this... in the darkness of a night... light a single candle... and wait for your sight to uncustom your mind to see all of the detail of you in a mirror placed on some plane slightly above you... when you can still the flame of the candle, so there is so wavering of your reflection in that mirror on that slightly elevated plane... take your number 2 pencil and describe every step you took to arrive at the instant you placed that number two pencil on the surface of your journal... You should have a good half hour or more of free wright writ... then take every third word and make a shorty out of those words... then take the best 17 words and make a senryu... then blow out the candle... and let your eyes adjust to your dark... yes, your dark, and not that of your room... Then Get Back AT Me! I got some other exercises that you can do for me... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... read "Come two three"... Michaelw1two

Yes I know that, as astute as ever! well my facebook is Dani Mcshane, twitter Daniella Bull, feel free to look me up and if you find any one of her let me know! I have been In deep conversation with my father this evening on the phone , we only started talking last Friday after a year, its strange but its home. As I said he overjoyed about my work and me working out were I need to be with my head and writing, He said he finds my style exciting, he feels its innocent , not interfered with he asked me to explain to him how I execute my free verse! I relayed I did not right drafts, my explanation was simple really , my 6 poems where written ...all with an "immediate" flow, not thinking or mulling words over in my head...I have not had a chance to right this last few days, I am hoping to tomorrow and hope my work leans your way...I am by now means as verbally wide as you but I have an ability to understand what your saying even if I have never seen the words before, you actually make me feel quite "word" inferior! my stuff so simple for you I imagine , not hard work , child's play for , you are far superior! He then asked me if it was fulfilling my creative need (I only wrote my first ever piece friday) a baby in this but you, that question he asked , I had the answer , no thinking about it as I new this morning whe I had to work out why I was feeling off balance ......NO!! NO! its not enough , a page , a few paragra[hs...I feel there is more , far longer verse....but I am just to fumble through till things become clearer and a direction/structure and in ensue .....was it the same for you? best wishes to you and yours, Dani Bull

Where else could we gather except here in this box? I will post a few this eve... and I am working on your words from a few nights ago... please allow me a moment or two to compose... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzip... myself! I am an opened book, I never turn down that look and as for you and I chatting, are we not? I trust we are and you are she and I am the Walrus! Yellow Submarine and come in through my bedroom window, ya know this? I know this... and I will take all those little girls in there with you!

Fish and Chips wrapped up in the dailies... Let US, you and I, get lots of fun out of these contacts... smashing! My Mike Meyers to you're Beyonce!?

I am differing on this... I refer to growth... single celled organisms "grow" in petrie dishes, apples "grow" from fertilized blosooms on apple trees, piles of processed feces grow ever higher at a sewage treatment plant, and ideals are thrown right there with it... you and I and all of US age... and the most of humanity goes sour in the bottle... no further discussion necessary... the ultimate truth which is not accepted by the all of humanity... glorified monkeys are not all of that! agreed? so, what is left based and right feared? My fist blasting noses out the backs of skulls! You and I are familiars, not even acquaintances yet... so we can do the adult thing with words and prance around a maybe pole or ideal or two... and not imply wrong or right or a gender bent idology is all of that or this is bs and I do not mind cuz nothing really matters... the two of US are madhatters and admit as much... so let US not fuss... lets make Woopie proud and not growl at each other like Wookies do! This is just to much fun! A pun a minute is worth my pole in your vault of ideas and thoughts and so much more! Great crack! words and worsts a barbecue galore! And I am the Master Baster! All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two
