Symetry of Theft

Is jealousy of creation a part of  human nature?
Is it innocence to assume that all flowers
Are for the plucking? Is it righteous to
Reach out and take take take take take
Calling the self both messenger and author?
Is it human nature to pluck the best?
To hunt through the ordered gardens and the wilderness
Gathering the prettiest and the most significant,
Plucking the flowers from their context
And claiming, “Now this is mine.” ?
Why not take all the best that you can perceive?
Why not take what moves your soul? Take take, take take .
Take what brings some comfort.  Take take take take.
Why should the intensity of your wanting
Not be justification for thieving actions?
If there is beauty in the wild,
Is that Wildness available for the plucking?
Are there no consequences for your taking taking
Taking taking taking taking taking.
There is always balance in nature.
There are always consequences.
The flattery of your wanting is insufficient.
The Universe cares not for flattery.
When beauty flows into your heart,
Does that make you the author or the audience?
You vandalizing thieves who have destroyed
With your careless critical trampling;
You flattering greedy plagiarizing soul cannibals;
You deceive only yourself that you are the art,
Yourself the artist and the gardener.
You trolling gatherers of art’s life blood,
Think that there is no price to pay. Wrong.
Restitution is always made. Balance is a contract
With the Universe, made before the birth of beauty.
Think on symmetry when you claim what is not yours …
Da! Da! Da!
Through all strata of creation balance is maintained.

    Sobering truthful words…


    • Just this minute read a letter from an (older than me 🙂 ) aunt who has been on 24hr. O2 since last November due to complications from pneumonia. She woke up Easter Sunday without the long tubes strung all over. You will get there, too. I had just opened the envelope when your avatar came up. XXX

        Wow! Thank You so much for telling me. I needed the encouragement. I’m looking forward to the music theme tomorrow. I just watched Johnny restring his guitar. I love the things you guys output through music. I may join in one theme soon. 😀


        • Eva challenged us with Poets and Poetry as our Music theme for 04.24.2014.
          For May 1-7, I am suggesting May Day … and whatever you feel fits within the coming week. To participate all that is necessary is to make your own blog post and let me know via a reply to this page and/or one or more of the other participants
