Art and the philosophy of life

a collection of decorative items on display on a table

can be plain
or beautiful
like the ones
in the above photo
but basically
they all do the same thing
they either keep something in
or they keep something out
some locks
are collected
for their looks alone
the truth of the matter is
that if you need a lock
in a hurry
pretty much anyone will do
just keep in mind
that it never hurts
to bring a little
beauty into one’s life

art teaches
it shows us what’s
true and what is going on
in the world
everyone sees a work of art
through their own lens
their own world view
their own individual
this looks like CHAOS
to me
and it’s beautiful
I have no idea
what it looks like
to you

but as long as they are
under under the fists of
we will never know
what they are capable
of doing
what a loss
for the species
for the animals
for the world itself
to those men in power
is preferable
to setting women

The gap between the trees…words

a man walking down a dirt road next to a forest

it wasn’t at all what he had expected
not for a second
it was easy
he just walked through
the gap between the trees
the sun was out
he could smell the grass
the flowers in the field
everything was peaceful
and perfect
he never realized
that death
would be so

imagine the stories
walls could tell
from being put up
to having their first encounters
with others
think of the things
they’ve heard
and seen
good and bad
funny and horrible
how do they feel
about being
or tiled
does it hurt
dull the sound
how afraid are they
of being torn down
maybe someday
we’ll be able to
find out
what they have to say
but right now
mums the word

You don’t have to believe in magic for it to exist…words

we are magic
but because we currently
reside on earth
out ability to use it
is hampered
by the environment
it takes a lot of practice
to wake and sustain
out abilities
but never
that it

a green snake is curled up on a branch

I love snakes
in all their colors
some are dangerous
but only when WE
go into THEIR territory
they don’t hunt us
they just want to be left alone
something humans
seem unable to do
leave ANYTHING alone
snakes are simply one more
life form
that needs to be treated
with respect
and love
another thing we humans
seem unable to do
the point is
I’m crazy about them
and they are beautiful

no matter where we are
or where we’re from
we all walk on the paths
that others have forged for us
worn deep into
all of our lives
half truths
and all the rest
we are people indoctrinated
into beliefs of the past
by each generation
we are born
then have to work
to unlearn what we have been
conditioned to believe
things that no longer work
in the age
in which we live
old grudges
and ideas
passed from one
to another
and we wonder why
we don’t see eye to eye
what chance do we have
when poisoned
from the beginning
when wearing white sheets
seem normal
and inequality
is just the way things are
the status quo
= death
it divides us
turns people into
everything we know
we have been taught
we need to break
away from the old stories
and the lies his-story
told us
we need to write
new tales
have new visions
in case you haven’t noticed
in many ways
we are currently dying

all beliefs are limiting
that’s why we need to review them
all the time
and make sure that what we think we believe
still makes sense

Rusted Warrior…words

he stands at attention
remains at his post
the Rusted Warrior
waits for a time
that has long ago
