DO ANIMALS SUFFER

If animals suffer, they
must have souls.

*
Footnote:
Jeremy Bentham: The question
is not can animals speak, but
can they suffer.

There are also millions of
websites, countless books
and studies about the
sentience, the feelings,
of plants.

REVENGE FACTORY

Violence is a revenge
factory, multiplying
hatred and driving
it underground.
    
NABOKOV’S QUILTY

As Navokov’s Clare Quilty
was a pedophile who was guilty
of attempting
to kill souls in the process
of worship of unripe bodies,
so do many lepidopterists
kidnap and kill butterflies
in order to impale their
iridescent dead bodies.

FLOATING CONSTELLATION

The river floats downstream
a constellation of
rippling sunstars.

SIDEWALK CRACKS

His neighbor thought
him crazy, watching
him water thirsty
sidewalk crack weeds.

 

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION IN NOVELS

It seems likely that
there are no descriptions
of Jesus written by the
four evangelists.
His disciples were not
concerned with the standards
of the world.

Many works of fiction
(novels, romance, mystery,
thrillers) kill trees with excessive
description of external
appearance and boring
detail about dress.

Perhaps someone might
write instead “fill in your favorite
form of hero or heroine here”.

*
Footnote:
Isaiah 53: 2
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness;
and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

UNIVERSAL WE

The universal
all-including we
encompasses thee,
circumscribes me

ANOREXIA CURE

She said she was
able to conquer
anorexia by
focusing on food
as fuel.

UNSUBTLE

The woman would
go to AA meetings
and describe
how alcohol made her
more promiscuous.
She always wore
a “Rent Me” tshirt.

THIRD EAR

God
caused me as I awoke
to hear
in my third ear
“Not in the morning
(mourning) pond does
the lion wash his blood.”

1. ‘The Lion of Judah
is Jesus’ interpreted one friend.
2. Jean said that the lion
does his killing at night.
3. If the evening pond is older
than the morning pond, a
lion chooses an older partner
who heals him.
4.
In the evening the lion
does not see his blood
… his sin… the pink suntinted
waters reflect only his
perfection.

BREAKING THROUGH MATRIX

A woman trying to disentangle
herself from a relationship
with her serially unfaithful
and frequently
violent husband of whom she
was afraid… heard in her third
ear
“As much as possible sleep
under the midnight sky.”

HIGHER MAGNETISM

Tom met a woman… and
told her she was dating 2 men
and that she was more
sexually attracted to the
shorter man. Then he asked
her which of the two would
be a better father for her
children. She chose the taller
man.

TRAFFICKING

revised

All human trafficking is
heinous… from child prostitution
and child labor to kidnappings
of adults… drafting them into
armies, chaining them
in brothels, enslaving
them as domestics.

Trafficking in trillions
of animals to EAT them
does not receive as
much attention.

Human and animal trafficking
are combined in many of the world’s
fishing corporations.

Eating fishes is not only
playing Russian roulette with
ones health and causing
suffocation agony to fishes
but is a factor in human slavery
as well.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING

THAI CHILD PROSTITUTION AND
FISHING INDUSTRY KIDNAPPING

Thailand is a gentle country..
which has banned logging to
save its forests
and which is permeated by the nonviolent
vibrations of Buddhism. But its dark
side includes being a worldwide
center of child kidnapping and
prostitution, as well as tolerating
kidnapping and forced labor in its
fishing industries.

WAR

In every military there are men
separated from their wives who
seek sexual outlet with prostitution,
destroying families and spreading STD’s.
The soldiers of the world are a factor
in human trafficking.

REPUBLICAN JOB FALSIFICATION
The Kasich administration has falsified its jobs record.
http://www.businessinsider.com/rival-ohio-governor-koch-brothers-2014-6

LIBRARIES CUT…. HUNTERS HELPED
John Kasich has each year in office reduced the money
for Ohio libraries, yet there have been no such reductions
for the 5% of the population who enjoy slaughtering bears,
killing deer, trapping beaver. The Ohio Dept. of Natural
Resources actually spends tax money promoting the brutal blood ‘sport’ of bow and arrow hunting.

KASICH CORRUPTION
John Kasich was an executive of Lehman Brothers when that company went bankrupt.

He was a frequent warmonger guest on monopolist Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News. Murdoch’s NewsCorp has been itself making news illegally tapping British citizens.

He has accepted over a half million dollars in contributions from his political appointees.

REPUBLICAN VOTE FRAUD

The Republicans of Ohio have cut way back on early voting because they are a minority party. The Republican attorney general of Ohio has tried to throw 26 million dollars of state legal business to one of his biggest Columbus law firm contributors.

PENSION ENDANGERING

Ohio pension funds under the control of Republican Josh Mandel and others are dangerously invested in fast food despite Wall St. warnings that fast food chains are a bad investment.

INSPECTOR GENERAL WHO DOESN’T INSPECT

HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN ENDORSES FITZGERALD

http://www.edfitzgeraldforohio.com/news/2014/human-rights-campaign-endor/

Despite Ed’s youthful appearance he will be 46 in 2014 and has experience as a mayor, a county executive, and in law enforcement.

CORRUPTION IN REPUBLICAN ADMINISTRATION

http://www.toledoblade.com/State/2014/06/06/Ohio-Lt-Gov-Mary-Taylor-s-chief-of-staff-abruptly-resigns.html

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION GOES BACKWARDS IN KASICH ADMINISTRATION

From derailing antifracking action and inaction regarding forest protection o killing untold numbers of trees for lottery tickets, the Kasich administration has been the enemy of nature.

Footnote: When one looks in a search engine for Fitzgerald’s website, the plutocratic search engine owners put John Kasich’s website first.

 

sublimity, moondate, unripe divinity, did abraham fail his test

DID ABRAHAM FAIL HIS TEST

Gopal said that it was
Rabbi Ben Alexander
who wrote that Abraham
had failed his test in
being willing to kill Isaac.
Perhaps Abraham listened to
the God without rather
than the God within.
A beauty of Judaism
is that in the Torah
and the Talmud,
minority opinions
are not erased or
declared heresy
as they are in more
hierarchical faiths.

MOONDATE

They were
geographically separated
for a short time,
these two human loons,
and so
made a vow to each
other that at the same
time each night they
would gaze at the moon.
*
Footnote: and on the night
of no moon they would look
in her direction… the same
as that in which the sun had
set.

(to Adele and John Looney)

UNRIPE DIVINITY

 

The omnipresent God
indwells all beings.
All God indwells are
unripe gods on the
Tree

PROSECUTOR ASSISTED SUICIDES

“Satan is the accuser.”
It is not just prosecutors
sending those to death chambers
who are in so doing guilty of murder
but prosecutors whose relentless
search for career scalps or
a warped idea of justice
leads their victims to suicide.

GOLDMINERS

Jewel and gold seekers,
archeologists, grave exhumers
often destroy living trees
… harming the present
for the past.

SUBDIVIDING MIND

The mind shatters Spirit
into shards, subdividing a
trunk of power into
tiny twigs, destroying the
force of Godward focused action.

Only the simple light of truth

will get us through

VESSEL OF SPIRIT

All attracting Spirit
resides in each being.
Why are we attracted
to one human vessel of Spirit
more than another?

Footnote:
“The same divinity is in all. Only
the size of the opening to the God
within differs.” -Sai Baba-

SOLDIER TEETH

His tongue
lies guarded by
two rows of soldier teeth…
until love moves him
beyond their fortification

LAKE PLACID

Lake Placid is pacific
while the Pacific is mostly
placid.

EVENING CURFEW

Evening curfew……
a concert cue
for birdies’ warbles
and trills and coos

RIVERRUSH

As rivers rush
to the waiting sea
a burdened heart seeks
a listening ear
to set his sadness free

goddess of the rain, vivified, communion vibuthi, auras don’t lie, for Thine is the kingdom

5 POEMS

-saiom shriver-

GODDESS OF THE CLOUDS

The goddess of the clouds
woven water her igniting shroud
Where her foot falls
new green remains.
Raindrops’ dancing… her refrain.
She’s fragrant with
the smell of rain.

VIVIFIED

I thought my oak tree was dead… On May 15th
there were no new leaves nor buds… only a few
dead ones.

But he burst into green fireworks…
among the thousands of new leaves
there is still one brown one who refuses
to give up.

AURAS NEVER LIE

Auras never lie.
The biggest aura
seen on this planet
is that of Sathya Sai Baba.
There can be no deception
in such an immense aura,
one with no visible end to it.


FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM

For Thine is the Kingdom
of Infinite, Eternal, Omnipotent,
Omnicscient Love.
*
Footnote:
As My Father has sent Me
I also send You

COMMUNION VIBUTHI

Today I attended a communion service…
and after the host melted in my mouth
I added Swami’s vibhuti….
the food of the Father
merging with the food of His Son

wings of spirit, eve rising, divine alchemy, mars submerged, wind in the fir etc.

THE WINGS OF SPIRIT
Fixed the bottle of scent…
Unbound her fragrance’ ascent.
Branched the nightingale
but her song to all ascends.
Moored tonight is the boat
but morn brings unfurled sails.
Earthbound the bodhisattva
but his aura spreads everywhere.
Amherst-circumscribed
was Emily’s pen
but her poems to
distant lands took flight.
93 million miles away the sun
but his love left home
to give us light.

*

Footnote: Bodhisattva..
1 a soul who chooses to come back
to earth to help others rather than
to be liberated
2  Emily is Emily Dickinson

3  dedicated to my 18 year old kitty Babaji

   who left for God today

EVE RISINGThe sun sets..

.into the blue sky

Eve rising..

in violet
twilight robes

DEAD STRUCTURE YIELDS
The hardened
crust of mother earth

green spring

spears do rupture.

Invincible love
breaks through
the heart,
melting the past’s
calcified structure.

MARS SUBMERGED

Waters rise in

a statuary garden

slowly submerging

the statue of Mars.

 

Love rises in the

heart erasing

errors of

the past.

Note:  The statue is of Buddha, not Mars….I know… Buddha creator of peace not Mars creator of war… giving an alternative meaning:  the waters of love are omnipotent

DIVINE ALCHEMY

Through the divine

alchemy of time,

as the dung pile

becomes the rose,

our anger is turned

into laughter

and even more sublime…..

into love

ABOVE THE INDIGO BLUE SEA
Above the indigo blue sea with

its white foaming waves

the aqua blue sky with

the bedrolls at his shelter…

and to the Indian raindancer…

of a sudden out of blue space

the white woven grace

…. of the invisible god of rain

the visible face

THE OMNIPOTENCE OF INACTION

If the world stops
bulldozing and mowing
zillions of seeds and

Sometimes the most powerful
actions of all come
from refraining to cause harm…
come from doing nothing.
