~ PUMPKIN WEATHER ~

As I sit in this pumpkin weather, where green and orange abound
I think back on light blue weather, needing wind without a sound
Because right beneath the surface exists a smoldering intensity
Brought on by a prism of color, and mediocrity
I'll never measure up, to Siddartha's type commitment
Fumbling feebly through, hates most evil resentments
Shocked to realize that Jesus, was not the only prophet
Fighting to hold on, to indoctrination's topics
For I am not the only sinner, I'm liquid information
Pouring through porous glory, and anticipation, atheistic
I'm not the lethal dosage, I'm the unlicensed physician
Prescribing 'altered states' for insight, into bleeding visions...

As I bask in this pumpkin weather, where prudence does dare abound
I lotus into my third eye, where nothing can possibly hurt me
Where my everything is imbued, with universal beauty
And the reflective prism of color, which our eyes cannot perceive
Goes beyond our imagination, and into life's longevity
Where the only player, is the energy of immortality
And the only game in town, is life and its mysteries
So I strive to find the truth, in all of reality
By honing my third eye, and energizing the light in me...

Hi Tony....This is very much representational of you and your metaphysical conceptions of God and the seeking and learning from research and experience....I like the title and the first two lines really are great to lead us into the rest of your poem. Jesus was the biggest rebel when He made His appearance on earth....He came to set straight all the false doctrines and pagan beliefs.Β  He had to go up against the system of the Roman Church (today's Catholic church) with the Pharisees and Saducees who wanted to make God the way that they could control people...and Jesus stood against all they stood for that was NOT the true God's will.Β  It has always been this way where people try to make God fit into what they want Him to be. God does go beyond our imagination, and I think that is why it is so hard for people to grasp a Creator that is LOVE and above all here because He created it...We want control, and until we learn to surrender to our inner spirits that house God, we fight against ourselves and our very nature....I have always wanted to meditate and try to open the third eye, but my mind is too busy and will not shut off....Maybe God prefers to speak to me in prayer...as that is when I hear His voice direct me.Β  I guess I have not had "Pumpkin Weather" as you describe it here, but I do believe when we seek God, He draws near...Great original phrases like the "unlicensed physician", etc....All Tonyisms that work.Β  LolΒ  Great work, T. xoΒ  Love n HugsΒ  Β

My Dear Tony,

Oft times, theologies we were once taught
No longer can us sate
We ponder o'er life's mysteries
And dwell upon our fate

.
From a gourd we've built around us
We quest for reality
Will the truth of life be revealed
Will the answer I ever see

All my love, Bro,
Larry xxx

Great write...thought provoking. One thing that always bothers me is this. Why is to hear 'God's voice' is acceptable while people who say 'talk to spirit' are deemed fakes and to be laughed at ...or people who have contact with 'aliens' likewise...whereas mentally unwell people often hear voices and are completely discredited whereas personally I think ALL these people are experiencing the same thing. Society just calls it different things, judges and discriminates as humans always do. It is all the voice of 'other' I think it is just our perception of 'other' that differs...now my brain is in a roll and I shan't sleep tonight....end of ramble πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’•

LOL!!...Thank you MARION!!......sorry about your sleep thing.....I don't sleep much...never really have.....5 hours is prettty much the norm for me....recently didn't sleep for three days and began hallucinating.....had to be hospitalized for a few days.....a pleasant experience in my opinion....everyone else was more frightened than me.....anyway, the matter at hand ~ the first thjing is..you can't listen to what "society" or even "friends" say about such matters (paranormal matters) because they are, for the most part, indoctrinated into their belief systems.Β  When speaking or trying comprehend this type of subject matter you have to speak with people who's belief systems are more open minded and have had some major 'epiphany' or 'out of body' type experience in their lifetime.Β  Often people who have experimented with Ayahuasca, Psilocybin, Peyote etc.Β  have much broader perspectives about the nature of this reality as well.Β  So please don't be upset about those people who look at you a little sideways...just remember you are one step closer to finding those who will be more open to such conversation.....and remember also.....that if you don't voice your opinions about such matters.....you will never tnhose that you are looking for!!....so hows that for rambling!! (smiles).....thank you SO much for going back further into my poetry.....SO VERY happy ypou found this particular piece.....stay curious......LOVE & ROCKETS!!.......T xoΒ  : )
