I am heaving under a giant rock and when my load is made
h e a v i e r
I cannot stop you with my hands full
holding square this world upon my shoulders.

Though I do not see a day when my back breaks
or my knees buckle,
I do fear my hands will indeed shake
and my heart ache for nothing.

For nothing?

This is nothing.

This feeling I reject and will work harder.
This fear I resist and will grow stronger.
For your love.

Today there is something here that lives neath the strain
of such insalubrious sacrifice.
The rains of our pain have nurtured, nourished,
and nudged it along far ahead of our short horizons.

What do we know anyway?

Though we won't experience the joy of watching,
I know now these deeds needed be done.

Our seeds planted will grow roots deep within firm earth true
while branching out above ground unknown
to bear the fruit of goodness mirroring that precious innocence
we so foolishly thought we could protect perennially.

A new dawn follows this blue one just set.

Hi Rev!
Well Reverend...this is a departure from your usual offerings.

I like this side of you!

Rev, it's going to be alright...every little worries;-)
Painful emotions, yet so beautifully expressed, filled with the wondrous hope of faith that everything will be right, and what needed to be done was done, all will be as it should be, because love rules above all else and heals even the deepest wounds of loss...this is but a temporary color, this blue, and a new dawn of bright joyous light is just a around the corner in this physical world of samsara's ocean of suffering;-)

Blessings and ALL love to you and all of us here in this ONE, Rev;-)

Testicular prancer? Is that just a play on words?

Mon Nom de Guerre

Well, yes, dear Brother Roach, it is a play on words my nom de guerre, but even more so a way of life... The Testicular Prancer. Thank you for asking and more thanks (or apologies) for taking the time to read my wretchedly wriggled writings ridiculous. Daily I wrestle with my "wit wrench" to work a wiggle signal downward toward my right wrist in attempt to wring my wrath upon my notepad til it's wrinkled, wrecked, and waterlogged with my wry, ramblings often so wrong and overwrought all for naught. I suppose ought not worry. I should allow my words to flow like water freely, but damn it, they are dammed so tight that not trickle or drip comes without great squeezing, sucking, or straining my brain losing sleep ad gaining only head pain.

Thank you all, Sisters Bea and Karma, Brothers Jonpenny and Roach for your kind comments caring. You are all very cool indeed.

Talkin' bout BLUES.........
Hey Rev;-)

This by far is STILL my favorite work by shows your true talents Reverend. I did read your haiku and "recent blogs" and I can't help but wonder if this "BLUE DAWN" is the reason behind such restless sleepless nights. I would love to see more poetry of this caliber from you, you do have a natural unique talent for poetry-just like your rather unique sense of humor at times, keep on blogging and writing and senryu'ing on Rev!

With ALL love,
