Essential 1 (a poetic thought, by George-b)

My being was hungry today:
My eyes avidly took in every sight
My ears listened, and listened  to large itunes playlist
“What’s up?”, “Firewood”, hundred other songs
My nose grasped every scent – the freshly cut grass,
The dogs beach, the beer smelling sun block lotion
My skin froze and then it thaw, and then it dried again

Inside my head, I feel the making of today’s memories

A squirrel held me by my hand,
took the almond offered,
with delicate grace, almost human…

Yes I made it all about myself today….

Tomorrow,  will tomorrow remember me?

  2. Normally poetry bores me, but not yours. I think it’s because you lay something familiar before my feet.

    • Thanks Kenton, Very kind of you to share your thought: I try to keep it real, closer to human collective experience, that some of us forget to contemplate during a breather, or at any other given time. Times keep us busy beyond humanity, I think, and it is important to make the best of simplicity, without being simplistic, but, as you so poetically put it to lay at your audience’s feet the familiar, as a uniquely perceived representation of collective experience neither male nor female, young or all, just the very core of our collective, archaic inherited commonality.
      Thanks again for your commtent, it is an honor!
