The Angels Rushed Through The Woods Today

The Angels Rushed Through The Woods Today The Angels rushed through the woods today. Or, Perhaps it was some wood sprites. The first band marched through, Murshida in the lead.

Cat Shit

Cat Shit Concupiscence A Moral Dilemma Cats learn early To cover up their 'business'. Leaving humans to think Of more important matters Than cleaning up cat shit. But, the day inevitably arrives, When Miss Feline discovers Your houseplants. You need not be surprised That soil is more attractive Than granulated deodorant. Smell a sample of each For yourself. Soil is rich with life; The granules are sterile, perfumed, lifeless. Cats are not dumb: They are organic. Dedicated to renewing with fresh... Sign in to see full entry.

I spit in the face of feat. F(alse) E(vidence) A(ppearing) R(eal) Fear is no match for Love. Place your bets early on this match of matches. The outcome is assured by centuries of competition. Some would say, 'Creator stacked the deck.' The awakened ones know this: It is just the nature of love! 2001, ShamsuddinThere is no contest. Fear hasn't a chance. Freedom is by nature, free. A choice is always yours. Choose fear ort choose Love. Each is exclusive and cannot exist in the other's presence.... Sign in to see full entry.

The Sweet Joy of Missing You

The Sweet Joy of Missing You It is all so new and fresh that I want not to be away from you! Yet, here am I. There, you are. What to do? This love I feel needs nothing more; Not even, your presence.

Turmoil, confusion, giddy swooning: all the birth pangs of awakening hearts. This pain of separation, more than I can bare. This pain... Sign in to see full entry.
