The Deadly Desert

The Deadly Desert
A Foretelling of Lions and Liars

History’s Art of Color: muddy,
glory faded, checked out.
The Universal City,
Overloaded Murkiness,
saturated with emotions
is a silent revolution,
the cesspool of you name it
turning itself inside out
and upside down.
The long of it, the short of it,
the upside, the downside
the right-side, the wrong-side.
We the People
are not self-evident,
not self-fulfilled,
or well-adjusted.
We grab and grasp
at the height(s) of false truths
in the dark while plummeting.
There is no spark, no sparkle
for the missing, for the longing.
Self-sabotaging temptations,
questions of reputation,
recapitulation: sins of repetition
keep us safe,
hold our place.
It’s called fear.
It’s known as fear.
It residing in the hearts
and the minds of the fearful.

Stop.
Think.

Be Brave.

 

“People often do a good deed without hope of reward, but for an evil deed they always demand payment.”
― L. Frank Baum, The Emerald City of Oz

        1. Eric, you’re most welcome. Spending time in in the spam folder has happened to me as well, several times. I think once a few set you free it seems to reset itself and allows the comments to go through. Odd really, there were no links or horrid language in your comment to hold it up! Please take good care, I don’t know how it is out there for everyone, yet I can only imagine. Please stay safe and well. Warm and best wishes, Mia

    1. Dear Daniel, please accept my tardy reply, life has taken me in many directions of late. Prophetic, yes, written in 2016. Thank you for your lovely words, it’s always nice to be missed. I’m looking forward to see what you’ve written, heading over to your site. Wishing you and yours well during this time of many unfolding truths and many changes. Be sage, be safe, be strong! Hava! ~ Mia

  1. Glad to see you have your toe back in the water again. Looks like many were patiently waiting for your return including me. Well, computers will never be safe I think. You have to learn to swim with the sharks or maybe the Alligator Man!

    1. Hi Greg, thank you for your lovely comment, I appreciate your kind words. I wonder if computers were ever safe and were we all unwilling participants in an unknown experiment? Now we have a clue. I guess we all take our chances with the sharks whether we want to or not, maybe now it’s a fine time to be an Alligator Man!
