Peace in the World

When the power of love overcomes the love of power then there will be peace in the world.

Strange Berries, Strange Days

June 22, 2017

I went out this morning to pick a few blackberries, intent on leaving most of them for the bears and other critters…just wanted a taste, as there is nothing quite like a fresh berry outta the hot sun…and just being there amongst those tangled, snatching vines in the humid air always gives me fond memories of going blackberry picking with my dad… deep in some neglected cow pasture with not a house or road for miles. That was quite an adventure! but also another story, which I fully intend to tell some day (he was definitely fae-folk)…but the story this morning is that I came home with photos rather than berries and a big “What the F***?”

The berries (all of them) were covered in what looked like white powder. Was that there two days ago? When I first made plans to come back and get a few? No, I don’t think it was. I would have noticed immediately just like I did today. Sooo what is it? And should anyone eat them??? Chem-trail residue? (oh, I forgot those aren’t real…at least according to some folk.)

But aside from berries covered with some unintelligible residue, the last day or so has just been friggin’ weird…(yep, even weirder than usual for the last few years) and I have found myself desiring to shut myself up in the house and turn on the AC, not something I usually wanna do or see as a particularly high choice…..I almost feel like I am hiding from something…avoiding something outside…escaping from…but what? Am I the only one feeling this way….I kinda doubt it. So what to do? Bear says to marry my star power with my animal power…in other words, my instinct with my intuition. Basically stop worrying about the whys and whats, do your best to stay in love and outta fear and follow both. Ahhh, the polarities once again.

Draw Close and Sing

copyright © June 11, 2017

by P. R. Lowe

Draw close to the spirit of the land

the time is at hand

to know from where you come

and the drum of the ancients calls your name

Sacred it is and unknown to all but you

time to do what you have left off so long

to sing your song and sing it clear and true.

Once You Know

Once you know a thing to be true it becomes challenging to carry on, as if it is not; especially if everyone around you seems to do so. _P. R. Lowe

Lost and Found

by P. R. Lowe

copyright © May 22, 2017

(I found this poem yesterday while “cleaning out”, it was tacked to an old cork board…no date no title, but it speaks volumes)

I do not long for love

that consumes me

but rather love that feeds me

that carries me aloft

on the wings of the hawk

not one that pitches me downward

into lust and fear

a man for my girl

a woman for the boy

a day for the night

a night for day

and in this way

we shall be free

to be as one at last

wars from the past over

the scent of clover

wafting in through open windows

open hearts

open minds

What were we built for…

‘If we were built…100_4141what were we built for? … Why do we have this amazing collection of sinews, senses, and sensibilities? Were we really designed in order to recline on the couch, extending our wrists perpendicular to the floor so we can flick through the television’s offerings? Were we really designed in order to shop some more so the economy can grow some more? Or were we designed to experience the great epiphanies that come from contact with each other and with the natural world?’

Man’s the Only One

Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.
