The search is on for something that, 

in the comfy chair had sat.

Maybe, it's that fluffy cat,

Taffy, who I'm looking at.

 

I'm seeking but I do not find

the place to meet within the mind

Brew a brand new pot of tea

and sew a common thread with me.

 

Looking under every rock,

for that other single sock.

I know the thing that must be found,

is somewhere in this bit of ground.

 

Sometimes it's best to set a spell,

til comes the ringing of the bell.

Which signals that the time is near,

for the fog to lift and clear.

 

Patience is the proper key,

on a chain it stays with me.

As the hands move on the clock,

soon my own will turn the lock.

did the bell ring? did the bird sing?

did the mist clear? did we meet here?

not in the sky

not in the sea

not in the cave

you turned the key

Quick, said the bird, find them, find them,
Round the corner. Through the first gate

Through the sky, across the sea

a flight was made, from you to me.

To reach a far off land by boat,

a vessel must be made to float.

 

To float your boat, you must find

the library within your mind

A storeroom for the books and files

A magician by the name of Miles.

 

He does put on his gloves so that

When the rabbit leaves the hat

Hops up to the podium,

Clears his throat, begins to hum.

 

Hum hum hum, beat the drum

Find the rhythm, it will come

Trust in bunnies, trust in self

put my statue on the shelf.

A sunny day where all is bright

A ruined abbey in the green

Grass is warm and stone is white

No one else here can be seen…

 

Until a gentleman appears

And talking, we move around the moat

Onto the terrace, and through the doors

I’ve not been here for many years.

 

Inside it’s dark but ruined no more

There’s furniture, and rugs on the floor

There may be books upon the shelf

If there were a light, I might see for myself.

The truth they say will set you free.

To find that trail, you may be,

Chasing clues that lead away

From what you know to be our way.

 

The only thing that you can trust,

is that sense, allowed to rust.

A cog assembled to a spring,

A part that does a certain thing.

 

Guidance comes in many forms,

Distracts you into chasing storms.

Leads you through the muddy mire,

Bring your torch and light the fire.

 

The truth is known by only us,

We have let you ride the bus.

You can get off anytime,

But beware, and heed this rhyme.

 

Accept the knowing of your mind,

The truthful message you will find.

If you look within the place,

Where we meet you face to face.

 

You have the simple sense of knowing,

Where the wind will soon be blowing.

The air is cool, and not so hot,

Don't forget the gift we brought.

 

We paint our pictures in the sand.

We paint them with your very hand.

Look around and you will see,

Images in every tree. 

 

We do it all, but even so,

Some are high, and some are low.

If you feed them, they will grow.

And pretty soon, they'll run the show.

 

The way we train is safe and sane,

But if you board the other train,

You might find trouble down the lane.

And we are not kidding.

Let me find the secret light
Switch it on and see the night
Illuminate the quiet dark
Hear the music, see the mark
I will do this soon I know
For I say it shall be so.

The stars are sharp like crystal spots
You will help me join the dots
Show the patterns, see the face
Standing there in time and space
I will see this soon I know
For I say it shall be so.

"There are some who may seem -seem not- as others seem,

who walk life's ragged mile

hid' beneath Man's common guise.

Yet such are they that seem by day,

who walk abroad by night."

@Belle .... Thank you! It did have influence. It still will... and I really like your spell. Sound advice, turning into a warning for that someone.

 

@Nera .... you are kind, thank you for your comment.

What's Up?

 

What's up, what's up?

Let me up and show me what's up.

What's up with you?

I always knew

That you would show me what's up with you.

 

He said, the maker is inside

The river is inside.

Be yourself

Don't be your friend

Have a friend

But don't be them.

 

Be yourself

For your own health

Or they may take your mind

By stealth.

 

Make a line

About your being

This is only done

By seeing.

 

See the point at which you start

See the point at which you end

You can do this with your art

So you don't become your friend.

 

Own your truth from deep within

Now's the right time to begin.

Let your own creation flow

Now you will see how to grow.

 

This will happen now I know

For I say it will be so.

Making Vanilla Essence

 

The sweet power within

Is scraped out

of the dark skin.

The essence of you

Added to

A clear matter

Neither solid nor liquid

To hold and strengthen your power

In clarity.

 

Sit in the dark

And strengthen your mark

Expand your essence

Your rarity.

 

And the skin cast off,

Chopped with a silver sharp blade

Neutralized by pink salt

Left,

Then dispersed to fade.
