My Hole In The Reeds

Of Aroma and Perfume

There was a time,
when perfume,
wafts the reminders,
of the sweetness,
of flowers,
the enticing aromas,
of sweet fruits.

Over time,
we’ve surpassed,
the simple esters,
of nature,
and bastardized,
them in the cauldron,
of our artifice,
and called them,
Perfumes.

Its complexity,
requires the death,
of countless flowers,
and fruits,
squeezed and pulverized,
to extract the very,
essence of aromas,
and these we,
throw into our
bubbling cauldron,
to produce the
complex smells,
we associate as perfumes.

It assaults the nostrils,
confuses the olfactory sense,
and yet,
the marketing agencies,
and perfume makers,
tells us it is,
the smell of,
Lust,
of Power,
of Seduction,
when all it is,
is the artifice of man,
and the bastardization of nature.

Font Of Creation

To tap directly into the raw font of Creation gives one access to the most amazing visions granting insights to Create the most unimaginable things – the same reason why some are on the pinnacle of Creation.

Beware though, that the same raw energies that grants the visions consumes and burns one’s mortal shell not made to house such primal power. Most who wield this raw energy is soon corrupted by its intensity – once tapped

The Space for Moderation

There are only two extremities,
but there is a lot of space in the middle.

The Child

Perhaps the child,
is born with infinite wisdom,
being plucked into existence,
from the ethers of the universe.
As we become more anchored,
to this physical form,
the wisdom of the universe,
dissipates into this reality.

We call this dissipation,
aging, of ‘growing up’,
of becoming realistic,
and in the process,
we lose sight,
and knowledge
of the wonders of the universe,
we were born with.
and lose
the child who sees everything
in this world with wonder.

Perhaps this is so,
not because the child
is seeing things for the first time,
but because the child,
had intimate knowledge,
and connection to the universe,
something we lose,
as we forget,
we call learning.

Equality Through Universality

Democracy is not a Tyranny of Majorities – it is Equality through Universality.

Laws under a Democracy is not derived for the Majority but derived for its Universality; in that they can be justly applied to every citizen in the Democracy.

For example, it is Universal that every citizen has the right to private property and laws should prevent the taking of private property without consent – it is not Universally accepted that the punishment for such indiscretion is the amputation of arms, but it is Universally accepted that the penalty is incarceration.

Therefore Laws should be derived that those who commit theft are incarcerated.

The Paradox of Humanity

The paradox of Humanity,
Humanity’s capacity to Love also allows it to Hate,
It’s ability to for Empathy also grants it the ability for Cruelty,
Humanity’s propensity to Conform drives it to Discriminate,
Our Ambitions also grants us Greed.
Our Individuality drive us to Possess.
Our ability to obtain Knowledge gives rise to the Ignorance of Arrogance.
Sometimes the paradox also means you’re both Proud and Loathe to be part of Humanity

Candlelight – Wildfires

In the dark,
one candle may stand,

illuminating a tiny circle,
of light around it.

It stands steadfast,
vigilant and silent.

Others will come,
drawn to its light,
to light their candle,
from its flame.

There are those,
who goes about,
lighting the candle
of others,
in the hopes
of spreading the light,
but those who don’t want it,
blows out the flame,
the light will not last.
There are yet still others,

who use the flame,
to ignite anything,
combustible,
setting the world ablaze,
in a wild fire,
that destroys all,
in its path.

If you have found,
your light,
stand steadfast,
vigilant and silent.
Others will come,
to light their candle,
from your flame,
and spread,
the light,
that will last.

Borders

From afar
we see it
as this huge wall
that divides
nations, peoples,
cultures, laws.

but when we stand
at the border,
it’s nondescript,
not noticeable,
as if it wasn’t there.

Just an arbitrary line
on the floor,
that someone drew
from afar.

Act of God

An Act of God incident is a term used for unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of man. Having said that, if an Act of God incident have arisen, its repeat occurence is foreseen – and should it occur it cannot be called unforeseen. The next time it occurs and there is no visible steps taken to curb the incident’s effects, it is negligence.

The Act of God card is a one time use card.

Division – Bigotry

Race does not divide us,
skin deep bigotry does.

Religion does not separate us,
sanctimonious bigotry does.

Class does not separate us,
arrogant bigotry does.

Education does not separate us,
ignorant bigotry does.

What separates us is simply,
bigotry.
