barefoot rendezvous

i kiss the road with my bare feet
the ground’s womb heat my sole to keep
i am the lover, it the bed sheet
i imprint upon reality’s sleep

i make love in gentle dust
with intuition, shuffle and brush
a happenstance witness, stray wind’s gust
it scarpers in a flustered rush

GUEST POST // Curious Intents In This Warmer Weather by Captain Q

Curious intents in this warmer weather
Knowing Summer will be coming soon
Inspiration & creativity go hand in hand
Shedding Winter demons beneath a fresh moon
I’m tired of conditioning myself for them
My mind feels free & ready to finally shine
Pushing away any thought to merely conform
We get one life & this one is going to be mine
I’m going to stretch my imagination far out
Tinkering with ideas & love for us all to spread
Spring is the return of life to this sleeping world
In the future, how to be remembered when we’re dead

to & fro

oh, hammock, how congenial you are
your embrace is clingy yet feathery
languid, you rock me from side to side
‘tween my past and future, to and fro
for now, suspended in harmony
for now, suspended in harmony

ain’t nothin’ will get done wrong
ain’t nothin’ will get done right
if this rope remains too long
if this knot strains too tight

oh, hammock, how unpalatable you are
your embrace entraps me, it is too easy
suffocated by your smothering tide
hung down deep, boundless sleep below
for now, crucified in harmony
for now, crucified in harmony

ain’t nothin’ will get done wrong
ain’t nothin’ will get done right
if this rope remains too long
if this knot strains too tight

Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Keep calm and Say cheese!

Hi, my dearest Writers and Readers!

I write this post with a special sense of pleasure… I would say, “With double pleasure.” No! With triple pleasure! OK, OK… All in good time!

Firstly, last week I was nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Wow! My beautiful Strings of Soulfulness honored me with this nomination. My heart made extra-boom. I thought, “OMG! Autopsy and Cemetery can inspire!”

Secondly, last week I was nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! Wow! (Hey! Do you think that I have amnesia?! I know, I know. You think! Noooo! My memory stays with me!) My amazing Spahr Plops honored me with this nomination. My heart made extra-boom-boom… I thought, “OK! Let it be… Maniac and Happy weirdo are hellish inspiring guys!”

Thank you, my dearest Reva and Michael, for my double pleasure! I love you!

Three things that inspired me the most this week… Hmmm…
Bad weather. What can be better for inspiration?
A hot bath. What can be better after bad weather?
A sound sleep. What can be better after the hot bath after bad weather?

My nominees.
My third and hugest pleasure.
I could do it before. Actually, I must do it every time! But I didn’t because I thought that it wouldn’t look good… it could look like I am nominating myself. Now, I do it with a light heart and justifiable pride. Now, this blog is not just a mirror of mine. Now, this blog has its own face, its own style and audience… Well… Any ideas, guys? Drumroll please… and… oh, yes…

1) Lordwalt! (http://lordwalt.wordpress.com/)

It’s you, my beautiful Walter! I highly recommend to you, my lovely Writers and Readers, his perfect works! It’s something that inspires me every week, every day, every moment! I don’t know how he does it… probably he is just Lord of the photocameras? Amazing blog and amazing Walt!

Where is this very first ‘Like’ from this blogger? Well… this post was lost and reposted. Unfortunately, my first ‘Like’ stays in my heart… not on my page.) And now you can be sure that I don’t have amnesia.
