rejecting thought when it gets to ego’s dissipation
you’re all for the swallowing of mine instead
(no-one gets to own that flow … )

and wail, ” but I won’t be Me …”
in the hook and sinker of imprinted water
what would you have me say about that wave?

  1. This poem says to me that you gotta get rid of those needy men Shell.! Long time since I’ve come around, and now I’m here I’ll say hello, and leave a kiss or two upon the open air that might find their way to your heart. Love Gregory from Australia, xxx

      oh wow, dearest Gregory!!!!

      just an odd poem-thingy that’s emerged years after the event … you know me, i make such a meal of letting go lol

      soooo good to hear from you – guess you heard me wondering if i should email you, eh?

      love to you always

  2. The photo and verse marry perfectly! Ahhh, the ego. I was reading, “A child is born. A child is born without any knowledge, any consciousness of his own self. And when a child is born the first thing he becomes aware of is not himself; the first thing he becomes aware of is the other. It is natural, because the eyes open outwards, the hands touch others, the ears listen to others, the tongue tastes food and the nose smells the outside. All these senses open outwards. ”

    I want my doors and windows to open out. I want my arms to extend out. I want to reliquish myself to your center. That damn ego. Rarely allows any such thing in pure form.

      *heh … don’t be too harsh on ego … one way or another it gets a lot of stick … though some are indeed overly-precious about or defined by its unchecked tyranny … *humph

      what a lovely quote about child’s consciousness, thank you, Anne!
