  • MAY CLOAKS

    May with jade… cloaks
    millennial oaks
    as rain their roots soaks
    foiling lightning’s strokes
    foiling wood turned to smoke

    EARRING

    When their love was a yearling
    he brought her amethyst earrings.
    Though this did her tears bring
    she needs no gifts.
    She always knows
    her darling’s endearing.

    PINK US

    The sun with dawn pinks us
    .. each Rao, Lee, Mohammed,
    Brown, Chavez and Pinkus.

    THE LAW OF ATTRACTION

    Beauty trumps
    striving emotion.
    Seek others, says AA, through
    attraction not promotion.
    With not a word, no motion
    the bloom pulls bee’s devotion.

    ALL CREATION

    Jesus said not ‘go teach
    all nations’… but
    ‘teach all creation’.
    St Francis often
    preached through
    silent example

    WAVE SQUARE

    A walk on the beach
    is squared to the waves
    .. a square which blesses
    them.

    DEWY SCENTS

    Bees are to flowers drawn
    by the dewy scents of dawn.

    UNBARBED HEART

    He fishes for fish souls,
    not their bodies. He has an unbarbed heart.
    He has no net.
    His pole has no hook, no lure,
    no agenda.

    *
    Footnote: St Anthony is reputed to
    have preached to the fishes,
    who listened.

    RESPECTING AUTONOMY

    Only for a brief time
    can one control
    the movements of
    another’s soul.
    He thinks this
    while waves unroll
    their uncontrolled
    and ceaseless scroll.

    MIST CLOTHED

    Mystifying mystical
    Neptune clothed
    in mist
    rose with his waves
    and kissed
    the moon he’d so
    missed.

    CHAMBERED SHELLS

    As Orpheus
    led Eurydice out of hell
    As Michelangelo released
    David from stone,
    Love calls us all
    from chambered shells
    to seat us in our
    own heart thrones.

    WATERY ARMS

    Neptune thoughtlessly
    tossed his love
    in the high tide
    onto the shore…
    where she was bereft
    ….stranded among
    the empty shells
    fizzing with inner
    surfbubbles, garlanded
    by seaweed,
    and housed under driftwood.
    *
    Realizing his great
    mistake, he flowed
    in…lifted her up
    with his watery arms
    and took her home.

    DUNE FRINGED

    Double the octave
    of Uranus,
    the notes of the tunes
    of seaclothed Neptune
    are fringed by dunes
    and awash in the moon.
    *

    Footnote:
    The orbit of Uranus
    which rules friend of the
    underdog Aquarius is 84
    years, or exactly half
    that of Neptune, ruler of
    Pisces and friend
    of all beings.

    WEAVER OF WAVES

    He who sculpts scallops
    and carves caves
    Who paints the dawn
    and weaves the waves
    Who engraves the frost
    and knits nutshells
    can do anything.
    He dwells as a genie
    within our hearts
    awaiting only our
    requests.
    *

    Footnote:
    God answers all prayers
    .. some through melting
    away our desire…
    only time determines
    when.

beloved, forking, the spun sun, whitecaps

4 POEMS

-saiom shriver-

BELOVED

His aura others
magnifies.
His intensely
deep eyes…
With love
they magnetize
His commanding will
does
miraclize
His presence does
mesmerize
as it ever
mystifies.

WHITECAPS

Winds fill
the sails
and whitecap
the cobbled sea.

FORKING

Lightning
illumines the sky
as it forks
the sea

THE SUN SPUN

Beneath skyspan
the sun spins
All trees… all fruit
are the sun spun.

Wisconsin Church Teaching Brutality To Animals

user img

The group Global Conservation of Milwaukee Wisconsin has collected 60,000 signatures of those publicly witnessing to their opposition to St Patrick’s Church of Stephensville Wisconsin and its decision to hold a brutal pig wrestling contest in which the voiceless pigs are terrorized and brutalized.

It is sad that a church which claims alliance with Jesus the Good Shepherd, St Francis of Assisi, and countless thousands of saints who abstained from animal flesh for ethical reasons would host an event which desensitizes children to the infliction of pain on animals.

Michael Feldman paraphrased:  What is even worse is what comes after for the pigs.

sacred cows, no squealing, walking on the sea, flying snail

4 POEMS

-saiom shriver-

SACRED COWS

All pigs are sacred
All sheep are sacred
All cows are sacred
All beings are sacred

 Footnote:
Some think that only cows
are sacred to Hindus, but
all beings are sacred to
Hindus, Buddhists, Jains,
mystical Christians, Jews,
Sufis, Muslims.

NO SQUEALING

There are some men
who run from giggling
squealing verbose women

FLYING SNAIL

The full moon sails
… a flying seasnail
Left on the sea her
liquid silver trail.

WALKING ON WATER

The full moon beckons
unfolding her magic
carpet across the sea.
Those who can walk
on water are able
to follow.

 

ripe apples, wildrosing, water all, waters of life, wallflower shade, trees can’t scream, God dances in all

7 POEMS

-saiom shriver-

RIPE APPLES

Sun and shade
the rye dapple
as the sun
swells ripe apples

WILDROSING

Spring
is wildrosing
the rye

WALLFLOWER SHADE

Wallflowers
in the shade
not permitted to
dance with the sun.

Cinderella …
banned
from the after
midnight moon

WATERS OF LIFE

For those with
thirst panting
are God-designed
watermelon canteens

For the ants and
bees….
curled leaves…
rain-bearers

and for long
journeys
coconuts…
water carriers

WATER ALL

From every stream
and each waterfall
From every lake
and puddle
water’s uniting with all

TREES CAN’T SCREAM

Fish can’t scream.
Trees can’t scream,
when they’re axed or
hooked in the stream.

GOD DANCES IN ALL

God does dance
in each beetle
every ant
all rats and mice
all weeds
every plant.

    ROBIN WILLIAMS

    We all stand on our desks to

    say ‘my captain my captain’

    to a master teacher of

    love and laughter,

    whose throat could contort

    to recreate any voice,

    who could pour his

    liquid soul into any role mold…

     

     

    There are no dead poets.

    Footnote:

    God now remove the pain of this man who gave of himself and of his money, who always kept his word. An AP story recounts that when he was entertaining the troops, a man with 3 tours of duty in Afghanistan came up to him and handed him his St Christopher medal.  Robin, greatly moved, after a few seconds pulled from around his neck his silver cross and gave it to the soldier.

    He was born under the tangent glow of mars and uranus.

    SOME QUOTES BY ROBIN:

     

    “Cocaine is God’s way of saying you’re making too much money.

    *

    “Oh my god, Jack Nicholson. He once was with me at a benefit and leaned over and said ‘even oysters have enemies.’ In a very intense voice. I responded with, ‘Increase your dosage.’

    *

    “You’re only given one little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.”

    *

    ‘Ah, yes, divorce, from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man’s genitals through his wallet.

    *

    “Do you think God gets stoned?  I do.  Look at the platypus.’

    *
    What’s right is what’s left if you do everything else wrong.
    *
    The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying, ‘Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.’
    She’s got a baseball bat and yelling, ‘You want a piece of me?’
    *
    We’ve had cloning in the South for years. It’s called cousins.

Uncivil War

user img

Masses massacred.
Was there ever a Civil War?
Are all wars
barbaric, uncivil?
Many would argue
that wars to free slaves, the war
to fight Hitler, wars to be freed
of colonial invasion, the battle of
Kurukshetra (the battle of the Bhagavad
Gita) are necessary
despite the mass slaughter of
civilians, soldiers, animals,
forests. Whatever ones opinion,
the leaders of great religions
such as Buddha, Jesus, Krishna
teach universal nonviolence.

My great grandfather fought for the Union Army in the Civil War…

My grandfather caught malaria from the invasion of Cuba in the Spanish American War

His death left his children without a father.

One of my uncles had a brain operation, a consequence of being in WW2..  Another was in the D Day  invasion.

My father from a forced Japanese encephalitis ‘vaccine’ shot given to soldiers in Asia

contracted a 107 degree temperature and died from Parkinson’s Disease.

My husband for many years had pain from the bullets in his leg in the Korean War.

3 of my brothers in law,  several cousins and a nephew served in the military.

2 friends died of Agent Orange effects.   One has still after 120 days not gotten help

from the Veterans’ Administration in bathing her husband… he is unable to walk from Agent Orange. 

 

Footnote:

If any question why we died, tell them, because our fathers lied.

 

Rudyard Kipling  wrote these lines after his son whom he had pushed

into war….. died
(1865-1936)

 

(My father never lied to me. But many fathers have forced their sons into the military.)
