~ THE SPIN ~

{our spirit needs a feed}

~ THE SPIN ~

As the thinning, rain-soaked pedestrian
Resembles human fragility
So does my impression
Of the dark and light within the soul
Of all humanity
In all its sacred splendor
In all its vehement drudgery
Such is the condition
Such is this momentary
Rendition,
Of,
The spin.....

Spinning webs with new technology
Spinning falsehood with theology
Spinning love songs for the need of "The We"
Spinning faster all the time
Dizzying God's intended reality
Until we see what we want to see
And never, ever, remembering
That it's our spirit's that need a feed
To manifest the very best
In the you and in the me
Wouldn't you agree
It's time to take
A ride,
Deep into,
The spin....

Tony, you are so right here. We need to step back from all the frantic input and just breathe. We are forced to live artificial lives at such a lunatic pace. It is the cause of most depression I'm sure, we all need to be alone with ourselves in nature from time to time( all the time if I had my way) to find ourselves, strip ourselves back and open ourselves up to the magical mystery and beauty of it all and spend time in reality as reality was intended to be, a reality that we have lost( not sure IV explained what I mean very well) ....regardless.....a fabulous write 💕

Hey T...I definitely agree...as you know how I feel about how the world likes to manipulate us to believe and feel a certain way....when it is the spirit within us that needs nurturing...  to remember where it comes from...and to look for truth and God's presence despite the confusing messages that we are sent...It is time for a new spin!  The world is so into technological advancements and power and prestige...but forgetting the human spirit's wonderful capabilities...especially when fueled by love...I really like the imagery you create to present a strong message....to show a new spin on life.  I am so proud of your work.  Love n Hugs, C  ;) xo

Technology will spin us into a future we can’t even imagine.
Belief systems will fade into oblivion, new ones will arise.
Nice write Tony.

Wow JOHN!!!...... you may have a point there..... although I might be thinking of a more positive spin on the final  outcome than you might be inferring here!!.... at least I pray that nature will do what humanity often falls short of...... because nature has a way of protecting its most treasured/prized partnership...... when we include the idea of 'Intelligent Design' into the equation there is truly HOPE for humanity as well as the well being of the planet itself!!.......thanx for your consideration dear poet brother!!......LOVE & ROCKETS!.......T xo.  : )

Hi Tony,

I believe in a clockmaker, I often wonder though if the clockmaker moves on to another clock and leaves the recently created to fend.....

My Dear Tony,
Here is my "Spin", on your powerful poem.

In the "spinning class" of life
We vigorously exercise our minds
Not knowing what they will ingest
Solutions so difficult to find

Love you Bro,
Larry xxx
