Wanderers and Prophets

big boned in beauty 7

We wanderers, ever seeking the lonelier way, begin no day where we have ended another day; and no sunrise finds us where sunset left us. Even while the earth sleeps we travel. We are the seeds of the tenacious plant, and it is in our ripeness and our fullness of heart that we are given to the wind and are scattered.

Complacent Fat Man

“When the prophet, a complacent fat man,
Arrived at the mountain-top
He cried: “Woe to my knowledge!
I intended to see good white lands
And bad black lands—
But the scene is grey.”

One Jealous Woman

There are certain streets,

that certain people walk on.

And, it is with great certainty, that is just how it is.

Fringe towns live as though they may fall off the map, any day.

It’s citizens love as today…were the last.

With empty pockets they will always carry their neighbor’s burden.

And, of that,  I am certain.

Humble pie is a pauper’s diet.

It is better to lay with dogs than walk with thieves.

Not all shallow waters are what they seem.

Sweet dreams deserve a morning’s mention.

And, of that, I am certain.

There ain’t no rest for the wicked…unless we are five feet underground.

Justice is silent.

But tyranny has sound.

One jealous woman can out fox ten misguided men.

And, of that, I am certain.

A prophet I am not.

But I am, however, the best I’ve got.

Prophets we are not.

But we are, however, the best we’ve got.
