Toppling Cultures

Bird, Cassette, Trail, Bohemian, Warrant, Nascence (adj.)) Beginning to exist, develop.), Chide, Illusory, Everywhere, Topple, Clinch, Insouciant (free from worry, concern, anxiety)

Times of neo-conventional bohemian

Insouciance…followers wear illusory

Utopian philosophy that nothing

Should ever be clinched too tightly—

Not apparel, morals, long-borne beliefs, nor

Tie-dyed relationships as whims should fancy,

Varied and colorful as tropical birds.

They leave their scent trails everywhere

Jasmine, musk, nouveau-health’s cuisine;

Fresh nascence of what they warrant is

True-original…as it ripens to sweetish-sick

Incense of dying…strains of song

Lingering from broken cassettes.

The old guard, how they lecture, chide;

Preach from self-ordained pulpits of

Polished pride—against frangible

Culture doomed to topple; as if any—

Bizarre beaded or buttoned down;

Mere men with, without, recorded

Merit—will somehow get out of

Self’s destruction alive.

To Bumble Is Human

Best of us are bumblers…despite our own good opinion, we’re often

Uninformed, ignorant, overly self-confident.  Prideful self-reliance

Makes a mess of our simple and grand ideas, opportunities.  We

Botch tasks, relationships—convinced by ego of our unique brilliance.

Life’s stuff and bother, and beauty—all that we reach for, clench dearest—

Everything would be easier, if we first sought God’s wise guidance*.

*Trust in the Lord Proverbs 3:4-6
4 So you will find favor and good repute In the sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.…New American Standard Bible

Proverbs 28:26
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.

Bejeweled Freedom Reigns

Sky diamonds falling

Rubies, emeralds, sapphires

Freedom’s festive gems

Tear velvet night open, pierce

Proud patriots’ loss with light


Bejeweled Freedom reigns!
