Wildflower *

photo by eob2/lg

Near the gardens edge,

where the woodland

begins, amongst an

unruly bed of weeds,

there thrives a singular

wild blooming beauty,

bathed in morning dew,

she awaits her Beloved

sun, His warmth caresses

each petal, she turns

into this touch, her face

begins to glow in His

morning golden light.

The Beguiled

Let yourself be silently drawn
by the stronger
pull of what you really love.
~~~ Rumi

His words

her opium,

inflames an

inner desire,

deeply she

inhales, closing

her eyes

listening intently

to His gentle

commands

Paranoid *

Fears become amplified,

threatening her universe.

*Note: I often post about mental health, for the reason that it is an ever growing problem. It often is swept under the proverbial rug for many reasons #1 the stigma attached to it. We need to do better in regards of gaining more funding for mental health clinics.

From 2.3 to 4.4% of the general US population are estimated to have paranoid personality disorder. It is thought to be more common among men. There is some evidence of increased prevalence in families.

Paranoia is an instinct or thought process which is believed to be heavily influenced by anxiety or fear, often to the point of delusion and irrationality. Paranoid thinking typically includes persecutory beliefs, or beliefs of conspiracy concerning a perceived threat towards oneself.

As always there is a musical song by NEONI, which is relatable to the topic. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.

Endlessly Searching (tanka)*

Goggle used to be

a narrow wooden drawer

of three by five cards

that would send you to the stacks

to find the knowledge you sought

lg/22072021

*Note: I sometimes laugh when I hear a student say, β€œIt took forever to find the information!” Pre 1990 it took weeks to find pertinent information at the library. Find your main book then beginning all the cross referencing to find the information you needed (accumulating a pile of books and articles) to write a report or term paper. Now the library is at your fingertips in your pocket, all the information you need with a few key strokes and arrow clicks. Yes, it still takes times, however not physically running back and forth.

Search engine history all started in 1990 with Archie, an FTP site hosting an index of downloadable directory listings. Search engines continued to be primitive directory listings, until search engines developed to crawling and indexing websites, eventually creating algorithms to optimize relevancy.
