OBAMA’S ENDLESS WAR

*

The White House pawns of
armsmongers, mercenary corporations,
Islamophobes and imperialists
have announced yet another
extension of the genocidal illegal immoral bankrupting
deathwar in Afghanistan…. this time til the end of 2016.

CUPID’S ARROW REMOVED
*
God can remove
painlessly any unwanted
Cupid’s
arrow,
no matter
how deeply it
penetrates
the bone marrow*
Footnote:
Why does the dead ball
moon, shining with stolen
light, have more powerful
on earth than the infinitely
larger self luminescent stars?
Proximity.
*
SHE HAS CHANGED
*
He hasn’t changed, but
she has… her soul
has unfolded to the point
she can now see how
beautiful is his aura.
*
LINGUA FRANCA
*
A lingua franca
is one of many forms
of linga,
for speech is a bridge
between thought
and manifestation.
*
NEPTUNIAN MIST
*
Neptune’s mist
veils earth reality,
winging it to higher
frequencies.
Neptune confers
rose colored glasses,
for the higher anyone
goes, the more he
sees the diviine in all.
*
DIVINE ALCHEMY
*
Through the divine
alchemy of time,
our anger is turned
into laughter
and even more sublime…..
into love.

17 POEMS OR THOUGHTS

-saiom shriver-
SEATIDES RECEDE

Seatides recede
that they
may reseed.
The sea secedes
to gather power and
sow new seaseeds.

TED’S SEABIRD

Ted found the seabird
in winter, broken-winged,
huddled in the shorebrush
in the snow and high winds,
a fishhook in his throat…
attached to a fishing line
which crippled one leg.
After days of trying, he
finally caught the bird
in order to heal him.

(Footnote: Ted Zagar)

ONE MAN’S ODYSSEY

He put women on pedestals…
glorifying virginity and
‘innocence’… considering
sex to be a barnyard animal
activity… this belief of his
and a brutal father caused
him to become gay. In
the military the gay men
in his unit were framed.
They were invited to a party
and then all arrested.

FIXiNG A RADIO

Dominic was fixing
a car radio for a friend.
As he made the new electronic
connection, he immediately heard
his favorite, the ‘Happy” song.

(Footnote: Dominic F of Akron O)

SHAKTI

Light, love, power,
money… some of the
infinite forms that
shakti takes.

FORGIVING IMPROVES HEALTH

Forgiving strengthens the immune
system, reduces the incidence of
heart attacks and strokes.

THE ANIMAL KILLING 4%

Hunters are 4% of the US
population and greatly
exaggerate what they do
for the environment as
they pay many thousands of dollars
to shoot endangered species in Africa.
Their political power is vastly
disproportionate to their numbers.

SUMMONING ANGELS

Jesus, Buddha, Hindu gurus,
saints such as Padre Pio
are able to summon angels
to perform miracles, to
heal, to give guidance.

(Footnote: Padre Pio
summoned the guardian
angels of those he was
ministering to for
guidance.)

DIVINE PARADOX

It is a divine paradox
that those who kill
others hasten their
victims’ entrance into
paradise.

FOR HER

He could voluntarily have
asked for an exit visa
from God at any time,
but he stayed on earth,
his heart faithfully
beating on, for his beloved.

YELLOW TO GOLD

Those yellow flowers
gradually turned gold…
as the mind chalice
filled with Spirit

MEANDER

The goose and her
gander
strolled in
the meander

NOT AN ENDORSEMENT

To forgive another
or oneself is not
to endorse
the offending action
but to transcend it.

EGO ME ABSOLVO
*
The priest says
“Ego te absolvo”
(I absolve you of
your sins) but all
have the power to
forgive themselves
and to move on with
their lives..

Ego me absolvo.
I absolve myself.

We are all shrines
of the omnipresent
God who dwells within each.

JUDGE NOT ADDICTS

People who harshly
judge drug addicts
are often addicted
themselves to the
trioxypurine in animal
flesh (meat) which is
stronger than the dioxypurine
of caffein.

A CERTAIN DEGREE

1 My father died when
the sun was at a certain
zodiacal degree.
2 My husband died
when the sun was at
that degree.
3 I nearly died from
a placental abruption
with the sun at the same
degree.
4 The abruption caused
my son to die shortly after.
5 I was attacked on the
highway by a man with
a hunting knife and handcuffs
when neptune was at that
degree.

That degree makes a grand
cross in my chart.
But when I met my spiritual
teacher, the karma
was greatly softened.
*
Footnote:

God can remove a mountain
range of karma instantaneously
when the soul learns its lesson.
-Sathya Sai Baba paraphrased-

THE BELOVED IS DESTINY

Desire is destiny.
The beloved is destiny,
two souls intertwined
in their pilgrimage home.

NEW FIGS

*

The barren tree of fig
God did forgive…
and did gift him
with new figs
God did
the tree fore-give.

For to forgive
is to give first….
to fore-give.

ALL IS ALREADY FORGIVEN

*

God has already
for all violence decreed acquittal..
for all anger given absolution
for all cruelty granted amnesty…
God has for all lapses
at all times no matter how heinous
already ordained
ransom
and resurrection.

*

Footnote:  “God looks upon sin
as a mother on her baby’s first
halting attempts to walk.” -Sai Baba-

POINT OF THE PEN

 

Ignorant theologians

debate how many angels

dance on the head of a pin.

It is writers who know

that angels dance

on the points of their pens.

FIX NOT THE SHELL SHARDS

 

When souls shed bodies
to answer heaven’s bell
they need not leave behind
clean earthly prison cells
as moved out renters needn’t
fix the places they did dwell
nor chicks affix every shard
of eggs’ quite shattered shells.

RAINSHADOW

 

There are no
shadows cast
by falling
rain
but sad are
dry rainshadow
terrains
like saplings
blocked from
light by
massive trees
or children of
busy parents
who don’t have
time to give love.

WORD QUEUE

 

Like bees around a bloom

many thoughts swirl

in a writer’s brain.

Is it a mystery that

they line up obediently

in a queue to be penned

one word at a time?

SATURN RINGS

 

The rings of Saturn

make one desire

a cage

rather than infinity.

Yevgeny Yevtushenko: If one is

used to a cage he will weep for

a cage. (written after visiting

a mink concentration camp

in the US as there are sable

ones in Russia)

KIDNAPPING

 

There are veterinarians

who don’t release

pets brought to them

until a bill is paid

in full.

Imagine what would

happen if a human children’s

hospital did that.

It is the polar opposite of

the Hippocratic Oath.

5 POEMS-saiom shriver-

user imgCHURCH AND STATE

If God is omnipresent
if God is everywhere
if the sun pours light into
each point of the air
then to attempt to separate
God from the state is
vainly to try for a
spiritual lobotomy.
After castles and forts
have fallen, after tanks
have rusted away,
God’s many kinds
of shrines remain.
*
Footnote: this is not an
endorsement for any theocratic
state… whether one in which
Sharia, or Mormon
in historical Utah, or present
day Israel, or the established
Church of England…dominates, but
the right of everyone to speak
his own prayer.

PALM SCULPTOR

He who guided the
sea to carve the caves
who causes fruit trees
to drop for-all alms
has sculpted unique lines
in each person’s palms.

footnote: A man complained to
Sathya Sai Baba that his lifeline
was short. Baba patted the man’s
hand. He looked at it and saw
that his lifeline had been
doubled

CATERPILLAR GREED

God enables the
caterpillar’s
greed for leaves
as fuel for cocoon
from which
the entombed bug
will a resurrected
body receive.

user imgCURSEBREAKING

Make life better;
don’t make it worse.
By forgiving,
release every being
from each curse.

*

Footnote: Forgiving does not require that one

interact with a negative person,

but to send him or her light.

 

God of all
break all curses now and forever.

ORPHANGE HOARDERS

Those who call
humans ‘hoarders’ for rescuing
animals rather than
‘euthanizing’ them
would for the most part
not call those who run
orphanages for chidlren ‘hoarders’.

The phalanx of socalled
antihoarders includes those
who never recycle, never
store food supplies for others
in times of need as well
as those who violate
elders by throwing away or selling or stealing
their most prized possessions before warehousing them into nursing homes.

AURA EXPANSION

Gail visualizes each
chakra spinning
clockwise in
a holy color…
and consciously
expands her
aura’s colors.
As souls progress
and frequencies increase
no chakra is confined
to a particular color
*

(Some souls
try to gain control
of others by reversing
their chakra direction.
Repating the name of
God is protection.)

OLD PLUTOCRATS

Have started wars
old plutocrats
for expanded capital markets…
these fatcats.
How many tens of millions
of young strong beautiful
men, the waves of a blessed
future, the pillars of the new,
enshrined in the hearts of
their parents, wives, and children,
were sacrificed on the
altar of the greed of the rich.

STEERAGE
19th Century Britain
was an ocean liner..
On the sunny top decks
constantly waited upon
were the ‘peerage’
while the poor were
confined to dank and
dark bottom
decks of steerage.

MULTISTORY CLOUD CASTLES

Angels aid building

DANDELION LIBERATION

The spider thought he’d caught
the dandelion seed
and scotched all her cheery
offspring
so oft maligned as weeds.
But she was by the wind
liberated
She was by the rain freed.

INTERNET OR BOOKS

1. Nearly all published books
kill trees
2. Nearly all published books
cost money
3. Books take much longer
to distribute
4. Nearly all books are read
by only an infinitesimal
fraction of the population. The Internet

potentially accesses 7 billion people.
5. As more and more book store
chains go out of business, the
right wing fleshmonger Barnes
and Noble is currently dominant.
6. The big book publishers often
secretly demand product placement
for fast food chains, boozemongering,
animal flesh peddling, lies
about 911, fawning over the FBI
