The Ten Demandments

 1) Love "LOVE", as everything you are; and more than anything else you could ever be!
 2) Do not create, worship or submit to any images as a substitute for the fullness and purity of "LOVE" Itself.

 3) Be not frivolous, or half-hearted when invoking "LOVE's" blessings.

 4) Allow yourself at least one full day each week for gratitude for Life. And rest in, and Love, fervently, the unique Life, that is the "LOVE" you are.

 5) Bestow "LOVING" respect upon your parents, and all elders, so that you too, after living many years, might receive the wisdom, the order & the necessity of that same Loving honor.

 6) Do not terminate, (beyond the need for self-defense), any other human life created by "LOVE".

 7) Be faithful to your commitments made in the name of "LOVE".

 8) Do not take what is clearly, (or even questionably), not yours as being an entitlement from "LOVE".

 9) In the name of "LOVE", let your voice & your heart speak only truth concerning your neighbor.

10) Lust not after the blessings that "LOVE" has seen fit to bestow upon others. But, be overwhelmingly thankful for your own blessings provided by "Love"- no matter how humble.

Poetry is Life, 
forming forms of forever. 
It is feeling, I Am.
It is facet.
And diamond.
Words of protection within safes,
worn about the neck.
It is to live.

It is a tent.
And, future lands to conquer.
The virtual, seeking for what's real.
It is mined.
And found on sidewalks.
It is reaching, and constricting. 

It is:
Just the wonder of air, without why.
Treasures in breath.
Measures of wept naked gold. 
Melancholy & histeria.  
Full lungs.
Perpetual liberation defying restriction.
Travel & destination. 
That which "pisseth" off!
And he who pisses-on...often.
The knowing that dissolves mental walls.
The growing list. 
The unexpected length. 
The Infinite holding finites hand. 
The unknown discovered by accident.
Sure feelings uncertain about uncertainty. 
The, "How we come up on Love". 
And, The What & The Who can get down. 
Change...and hate.
Change...and tolerance.
Change...and acceptance.
And change...and I Am my Brother's keeper;
My Sister's protector. 
The bank collecting dollars of compassion.
My Salvation.
What I must forgive. 
The evolving paradigm. 

Never trapped within my cells, 
unless I choose to only see IT that way.
Thanx for checkin' in... 
What is your poetry?!
