Poetry, Real Toads

unfinished…

here is the

news

 

word

 

straight from the

muse

 

afore we

begin

 

might you

tune yourself

in

 

to a place

where there’s

quiet

 

free of media’s

riot

 

a place of the

whole

 

a place filled

with the soul

 

of the matter

at hand

 

let breath take you

there

 

on a flight from

despair

 

from the fake and the

lie

 

from the cult of the

‘i’

 

to the peace that’s

within

 

to the travelers

inn

 

where the weary the

tired

 

can retreat from the

mi(red)

world which it has to be said is creating darkling illusions in my head at times

and with the meter and the rhyme that i don’t wish to pen anymore with any kind of linear timescape which itself is a fake notch on a cosmic bedpost pointing us towards oblivion that must come if we believe

the noose

that they choose

to impose

on our will

 

and our senses across fences that stand for all that is inhuman and bigoted and fucked up

and mind you listen

 

mind you well

 

they will deliver this your way if you have eyes open to it and a heart with no questions

no conscience

 

no way

to take the time

to be still

 

and to remember

re-member

 

and so

 

to the peace of it

which exists in perpetuity

 

that essential choice

that conversation with the muse

that place that is a home to the poet’s

every twitch and vein pump of ink

that absolute call from beyond

proclaiming this

 

i cannot be moved

i cannot fall

under your mortal spell

i will write

i will witness

i will have my say

speak my truth

and in that

i will reach out

to that community

which holds dear such freedom

which upholds the voice of us

individual

collective

which will rise

to meet what it must

because these twins must dance

the news is this

 

we are many

The Daily Post

Daily Prompt: Share the Love
by michelle w. on April 5, 2013

Tell us about another blogger who has influenced your own online journey.

I am a new blogger and to be honest there is only one Blog that I can honestly say has been an inspiration to me in the short time I have been here.

Step Forward The Daily Post here at WordPress.WordPress

As a new blogger I am still finding my way around the place and The Daily Post has given me a great platform to do this. It prompts me to write and also allows me instant access to a host of other writers trying the same thing. It is through the DP that I have found followers and have also found bloggers to follow. It is as I said too early for me to ascribe the tag of ‘Inspirational’ to any of those but there are most definitely bogs I like and am finding myself drawn too.

I am all too aware that there is a huge wild and untamed bloggerverse out there for me to yet discover. Writers who need no prompts or choose to work without them. Novelists of every genre. Political commentary. Surrealism. Avant Garde.

You name it, it will be out there.

My general take on things is to go with the flow and so I allow the breeze that blows here in WordPress, to gently nudge me here and there.

As I blog on two fronts, one photographic and one written I will offer up a short list of bloggers I am currently drawn too and suspect I will remain connected to.

In Photography these are my current regular ports of call. Click on the image to visit them.

Up first is Adrian at Cornwall Photography. Often stunning and always evocative images of a part of the world I love dearly.

Here below is the work of Karen McRae. Subtle and imbibed with a strong sense of her connection to nature, her work is very beautiful.

John Pickles lives and works in the English, Lake District. His love of the place is evident in his work and he gets extra bonus points for shooting film 😉

Other Blogs I have been drawn to in my short time here are as follows.

http://vastlycurious.com/  Sometimes your instincts just take you to a place where you feel a connection.

http://myatheistblog.wordpress.com/ Honest, forthright and very funny with it.

http://notsoprompt.wordpress.com/ A fellow Northerner, easy writing style and a variety of subject matter.

http://magpiecinema.wordpress.com/ Independent Cinema’s finest and a real life friend too.
