Death To Wiggly Red Lines – Promote Yourself



There is nothing so oppressive to the spirit
Of the perennial utilizator of nonsense verbology
As the crinkled strip of death objecting
To our syncopating vocabulary.
Not content with voicing harrumphs at these
Gone too, must be academic jargonry
Lest we break the poor computer’s cranium.
And we know truly that the programmar (Of who I am SIC)
of your dictionary must definitely be
For heaven forbid you durst use
Cheese eating francophiles partez!
We have no Word for thee.
Good heavens, do you speak
Like the Queen, or the BBC?
Rather than like they do in the colonies?
The fruits of your labour shall be
Underlined in litres of red ink.

Leastways, it does not presume
To change it by itself – Oh wait
Which, interesting to note,
Is itself an “illegal word”
Proving that God
Or at least the programmer
(Who all have God complexes)
Has a sense of Irony.

We Are Not Alone

We are not alone
Although we might feel we are
Even in the midst of darkness
We all are observed from afar

For in that distance land of beauty
Where our spirit friends reside
Times when we feel vulnerable
When we have sat down and cried

For we all have a link of love
That is placed within each heart
It’s energy within our spirit
Knowing that we are never apart

Take from that energy of love
Where ever you may roam
Feel the love it contains
Knowing that you are not alone

Rumi > Quotes > Quotable Quote – Your favourite poem


“Be helpless, dumbfounded,
Unable to say yes or no.
Then a stretcher will come from grace
to gather us up.

We are too dull-eyed to see that beauty.
If we say we can, we’re lying.
If we say No, we don’t see it,
That No will behead us
And shut tight our window onto spirit.

So let us rather not be sure of anything,
Beside ourselves, and only that, so
Miraculous beings come running to help.
Crazed, lying in a zero circle, mute,
We shall be saying finally,
With tremendous eloquence, Lead us.
When we have totally surrendered to that beauty,
We shall be a mighty kindness.”

― Rumi

To lose someone to spirit


When you lose someone to spirit,

It leaves an empty space,

There is no one to relate to,

No more that smiling face.

No one to share things,

No one to hold your hand,

Just whisked away to spirit,

Something that was not planned.

But you know, everything that happens,

Is all part of the creators scheme,

For the spirit has to develop,

To become part of his spiritual dream.

Just take a look at the rainbow,

Take a look at a beautiful child,

Breathe in the wonderful aromas,

Of the flowers that are growing wild.

Take a look at the miracle of nature,

As it unfolds before your eyes,

Like the clouds as they change shape,

As the wind blows them across the skies.

Like the wind our spirit bodies are,

You can feel but cannot see,

For you are spirits of another sphere,

With no burdens, you are all free.

So although you have lost someone to spirit,

You are only losing the material form,

And know that all your loved ones,

Return to spirit, to be reborn.

So send your love to those in spirit,

And in time you all will find,

That your loved ones will converse with you,

Through the power of your mind.
