Advice Taken

a love balm practitioner told me
take it easy on the left side
it’s squeamish and quite opinionated
your right side hears a rhythm beyond the fluttering of leaves
beyond the dense rabble rousing of cloud gathering
your right side caters to overgrown ideas
exploding into floodgates of comings and goings on
into rotting fruit
soon to be filtered by blushing brides
then becomes the nectar that gets you drunk on life
excited about the next minute
expecting the returns to be so personal and precise
none but ones self can appreciate the step by step positioning
this life really allows for.

My love balm practitioner was finished with my head rub
I faded then
into the future
bright and big
a ferris wheel of fear and loathing
I seem to manage
I take heed
I listen
to my gut mostly

I seem to stay right more than ever.
It just feels better when I do.

    I miss you.
    Hope all is well dear. So great to see you
    sass ;)))

  • OH WOW… thanks so much Sass,
    I’ve been gone true but also from creating anything to post!
    I was so immersed in art for years and so taking time away has been nice.
    I don’t know if this is coming back but today I do plan on doing some art work and it felt so good to write. Thanks for taking the time to say hello!!

    Colorful little birdie
    Dancing on the sill
    The cat looks hungry
    There’s a belly to fill
    Licking its chops
    And ready to pounce
    Get into my belly
    I’m here to announce
    Frozen in fear
    The birdie began to shout
    “Somebody help me,
    Who let the cat out?”
    I watch in horror
    They’re too far away
    I cried to the birdie
    “Hey just fly away!”
    Off like a shot
    The little birdie shouted with glee
    “That pesky cat
    Won’t make a meal out of me!!”
    With the tail whipping
    The cat glared and fell
    “Pesky human,
    You can go to …”
    Well you know

    Being drunk on life beats listening to the news any day. The news is used.
    (…if you know what I mean) I’m glad you are listening to your gut. :)

  • Oh how true. The news is used and ABUSED. It seems my gut is a trustworthy friend. Thanks Frannie

    Hi Lina! So happy to see your writing here. You sound so good, like you always do. That left side is always there though, at least for me anyway. It takes practice to stay positive, but i also have a need to feel all my feelings. It’s the only way I can finally get rid of them. Love your write and love you, too. xxx

    I wonder who does the choosing? Maybe its just good ol fashioned “strongest part wins out”? I don’t know, but a lot of living sure gets done despite all these things. I really liked the lovely images in this L. Fruit and excess, how it should be, right?
