Face of The World*

life today

can pull

you down

to the ground.

walking through

empty streets,

as fragmented

memories

circle like

splintered light.

once enlighten,

now

pain

etched

shallow faces.

visions lost

hiding

behind

hollow eyes,

thoughts of

tomorrow lay in

shadowed

darkness

so oblique.

*Note: melancholic thoughts are more prevalent this year than in the past. Isolation can do that, call, FaceTime or zoom those dear to you. Know that you are never truly alone have faith let your spirits be lifted. 🙂 Sending a virtual hug around the world.

🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

Walk With Us*

luminous blue moon

fills night sky,

clouds overshadow

it’s light,

winds howling

raises hairs,

eerie lights

appear to glow

among the trees,

silently hidden

away from sight,

one may watch

as spirits stroll

leisurely without

a care,

beware not

to be seen,

for you may

join them

eternally.

UH-OH

*Note: Music to stroll by

Silence (tanka)*

emotional blues~

cries within wanting release~

struggles inside self~

battles daily twofold war~

harmony a fleeting thing

*Note: Many fight depression, anxiety and bipolar conditions just to name a few on a daily bases. Mental health is a major issue for many on a good day, however with the Covid-19 quarantine it is even harder for some to deal with it. Even those without issues are finding it difficult to be isolated. If you know someone who might be struggling reach out, you don’t need to give advise, just let them know they aren’t alone. This video connected for me with my poem. 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

PS. If you’re wondering I unplugged this week, I’ll catch up with all of you and your posts, I’ll be looking forward to reading, listening and seeing what you all are up to. Much love to all my fellow bloggers. 🙏🏼🦋🌹

Legend of Asgard (tanka string)*

clouds gather in dark~

giving form to fear as rain~

trees hold ground knowing~

lightning announces entrance~

games Immortals play this night

~

rides obscurity~

chariot thunders in skies~

protecting mankind~

Mjollnir held true in Thor’s hand~

poised to battle tyranny

*Note: The storm videoclip was filmed from the upper deck of my home. The storm only grew in intensity as time moved on. Being this high on the mountain at times one has the feeling of being closer to God/Gods :). The song is Riders on the Storm by the Doors, however I chose the instrumental instead of the original. Always 🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.

Thor is mostly associated with Norse methodology more so than Germanic, if you wish to learn more about Thor in all methodology I have provided a link

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – “Legend” – April 20, 2020

Hosanna *

into Jerusalem

He rode

His followers

in tow

palms sway

in hands,

tossed

at his feet

their significance

cannot be denied

goodness,

steadfast

victory

proclaiming

Him

their

only

hope

lg/05042020

*Note: The word hosanna (Latin osanna, Greek ὡσαννά, hōsanná) is from Hebrew הושיעה־נא, הושיעה נא hôšîʿâ-nā and related to Aramaic אושענא (ʾōshaÊ¿nā) meaning “save, rescue, savior”. In the Hebrew Bible it is used only in verses such as “help” or “save, I pray” (Psalms 118:25).

Religion like politics is considered taboo in group conversation. We may all have different ways of who (the One has many names) and how we worship. However the common denominator is to respect, help and love one another. Even if you aren’t a believer, I would hope that these three things are something you practice.

We lost Bill Withers this week, this song is one of my favorites he sang. It carries an inspirational message, we can reach out to one another, no matter where we live on this planet that we share.

Always 🌎✌🏻💜
