In A Nutshell…

Truth, Lies, Justice, Quotes

If you are happy telling yourself lies, then you must stay happy when others tell you lies.

When they put up the fences…

When they put up the fences
may our feet be as fleet as gazelle
that we outrun their barbed enclaves
may our wings spread wide
that we soar high to tips of the highest trees
breaching the boundaries of caged birds
whose wings are clipped
but their voices continue to sing.

When they put up the fences
will they stay rested behind their glass towers
or will they venture to other people’s poor spaces
and plant their feet in arrogant superiority
whilst they tear the owners asunder?
Forgetting that he who brings an insect infested log into his abode
invites the lizard to feast
and may not have rest.

When they put up their fences
tell me
Would that really make any sense?
What manner of divisions shall we see?
Would that really be a worthwhile defense?
or will it trigger room for more offense?
When they put up their fences,
then what? I’m in suspense.

Fences

I absolutely love this book of poems. My favorites are “Love Rations” (for those who love to give the silent treatment) and “Beggars Supper” (which definitely pulls at the heart strings). Two thumbs up!!

Today’s featured blogs posts are:

Singing for our supper: I’ll love to place my feet on these paths of the Apollo Walk of Fame. Beautiful scene. Maybe putting my feet on the mark of James Brown will earn me dexterous dancing toes 😉

Odd-ball: Some vintage bikes. Bet they are worth a packet.

Our Southern mothers: Ha! The good old precious times. I truly enjoyed this post though I’m not a Southern girl, but I could play the scenes in my head. Check it out.

Strolling through Paris: Paris de mon cœur – Paris of my heart, a refreshing visit to the ‘bon quartier‘ is long overdue. Beautiful post that makes me reminisce 🙂

Defective medium: Every medium in the life of man is defective because man by nature is not flawless. As the Bible would say “the heart of man is desperately wicked” this poem says a lot.

Tuesday chatter: a breezy chat with my dear Eugenia is always so cheering and worthwhile 🙂

Please do step in and show some love.

When our minds are fixed on knowledge that is redundant and has gotten us nowhere, we leave no room to expand our minds or understanding.

We don’t know it all. We can never know it all.

For us to learn more than we know, we may have to throw away other preconceived and empty notions that occupy space in our lives.

Even our minds deserve a detox.

The Future In The Young….

The hope of mankind’s future

Lies in the step of the young one’s

We are simply custodians

Meant to help them find their footing

How and what we teach them

Will mould the way they choose to walk

Let’s be wise in our teachings.
