Sense of Freedom, in Nature and Mood

IMG_3508

Freedom can provide us with opportunities to observe nature,

Freedom is intermittent,

Like rain, it may start in a torrent,

Or leave as a mist,

It can come and go in gusts,

Or hover in the clouds indefinitely,

The drought is wicked,

Floods can be worse,

Then we gather our senses

Had to finish these twitter poems.  I’m thinking of writing other works, if I get some free time!

Freedom, to me depends on mood and situation more than anything. If anxiety or suffering creeps in, parts of freedom, or some perception/visions of freedom can fade.

Isolated Showers and One Definition of Nature

Buntzen Freedom

Senses bring us in tune with nature and the daily weather,

It’s an awareness of beauty, and at times, savage power,

Nature is everything,

Pollution, cities, and people are nature,

Humans are creatures that impact,

Everything,

All that is,

Spirit, material, paradox and all human perception: Nature

Sanity in Working Together

2006_042

This is a quick poem, that I have adapted and posted on twitter.  Basically it is about finding mental health through making progress, working together and NOT wasting time.

 

Of the frivolous ways to spend my days,

Nothing is worse than questioning the future,

So, if I dare, to stare into space,

I’ll try to make sure, I’m not planning a detour,

Because time is the essence, it’s okay if it’s lessons,

But not delays that drag days on without gain,

Life becomes better, when we’re working together,

When time engages through all stages, we feel sane

Forever is Right Now

Time is not a fleeting thing,

It is permanent,

Like the impression of a moment,

In the records of life,

Consciousness,

The soul is experienced in waves of connected, flowing, perception,

The stem carries

Blossoms of life, that open and find form,

Time takes away endless tomorrows,

But leaves forever today

Energy Transfer

2014 summer starts 013

For the skies, the cold ground surges,

New life from old life emerges,

Energy courses through potential,

Back and fourth or round and round,

Gravity gives us a sense of balance,

Even if our days are challenged,

Power in time consumes and purges,

For the ground, the sky speaks & urges

Where are we now?

Deep within our world,

Are we doing well?

What work needs to be done?

Can we relax and savour the moment?

In due time,

We are here,

As real as Ever,

Enjoying the breaths,

Between finding more

And being unaware,

Need to see the grace,

Reach peace

 

A few thoughts:

Try not to fixate.

It can distort the view, and amplify stress.

I’m crashing out,

putting some words together,

depending on my mood.

Top or bottom of the yo-yo,

it’s all a phase.

Think about what tides you through,

And find ways to be well on the journey.

Things will change. Focus can stay the same. Look past the gong show, until you have balance again.

Take care!!

Precipitate Belief in Knowledge

Celebrate good times, work hard so they improve,

If music flows like water, weather sets the groove,

Enjoy life past sun or storm, stay certain we can achieve,

Avoid mistakes in action, develop what we believe,

Hurtling through time like a hydrous meteor,

To get past collisions, insight must lead us more,

Learning to live best, by taking time to test,

Blast past fear or doubt, by knowing all the rest,

Fill thought to the top, and don’t leave out the bottom,

Good days or bad days, everybody’s got them,

For each challenge on cue, we ask what can we bring,

When confidence stays true, we get past anything,

Never stop questioning, and always find more faith,

We get better answers, if our senses in knowledge bathe
