Hanging by a Narrative Thread

A  L  O  H  A !
"Never love anyone 
who treats you
 like you're ordinary."

 Oscar Wilde

"The soul that
 can speak 
through the eyes, 
can also kiss 
with a gaze"

 Gustav Adolfo Becquer

" Look within.

Within is the fountain

 of good

and it will ever bubble up,

 if thou wilt ever dig.” 

Marcus Aurelius

 > <  }  }  ( ° >

Narrative is imposed
god how we need that story!
 Thread of Sense,

The Maze of Multiplicities
makes us dizzy like
Space Sickness.
How we need a solid

What is the plot?
What role have we got?
How to find our spot
in the sun
Grab some
 fun on the run.

We long for significance
importance, really,
to someone
Few understanding
the Powers we're commanding!

Terrible simplicity 
who among us
can sit in the sunny anteroom
not fearing, wondering,
 worrying -
missing afternoon's
Mist of Light,
so fearing Night
That we miss
the butterfly.

Thanks for sharing YOUr story!
                                         fondly, cloudia

Great quotes, and love the last piece. There is much wisdom there. I can really use our Hawaiian vacation today - in Wisconsin I woke up to snow! :o)

Cats absorb the sunshine and live in the moment better than any person I know. A furry lesson for me.

May we all notice the butterflies, the hearts, the shafts of light and fairy dust motes floating past… the magical ordinary beauties… may we all find friends who see our ordinary magical beauty… love us just because we are.

Brian Miller said...

we are all extraordinary....and the noticing of others brings meaning to them as well...the acknowledgement...the making them feel worthy.
