backfield road 1

backfield road

a
fire works show
on
backfield  road

where
corn   meets   grass
in misty flows

and

lightening bugs rise
in choirs of phrases

with staccato-yellow zips
–stirring the senses–

while
thunderheads blossom
peony light,

zig
zapping
dares to earth:

tango to night?

blue bright brilliance
(a lightening response).

soft and steady, the
raindrops
drum;

drumming in the night,
day is done.

do come back,
come back, again.

life’s electric here
on
backfield road

back, field road…

back

field

road.

Harmony

silent sunday

love is constant

in its expression.

among the withers, potential glows.

Living is Not Mental Illness

Everything has its time.  Knowing this, wondering ‘how long’ comes to mind.  Yes?

How long…  How long ’til I’m big enough?

How long…  How long ’til I’m old enough?

How long…  How long ’til I find love?  Meaning?  Worth?

How long…  How long ’til this ________ experience comes to pass, then passes?

How long… How long is long?

What is the span of your investment?

I walk a road

thinking i know

the way

the purpose

the answer

the opportunity

the end.

~

Off the road

I know nothing

lose my way

question action

do not recognize

the dawn.

~

When you no longer recognize the what, the who, the when, the why, the where, the how of all you believe, sit down. 

Rest in ease.

Let the chatter chill. 

The obligation of justification was the only mental dis-ease.

Check.

~

Release.

But … how long?

…mate!

I LOVE MY LIFE

I LOVE MY LIFE
(though my throat is froggy)
I LOVE MY LIFE
(even when my lungs are boggy)
I LOVE MY FROGGY cough
FROGGY, BOGGY LIFE

(and now the page is soggy)
Oh.
well, hmmm.
(so what? it’s life!)
yeah,
I’m a muck transformer in wheeze mode strife
because I am what I am in the moment–YEA, LIFE!

So, if one were wondering, “where is Meredith, these days,” one might learn that it’s just damn hard to shake a virus that went viral, systemically speaking. I am so excited… a viral sensation within myself. Ha!
