Almost Halloween

As per the previous post, I’m really getting into the spirit of Autumn right about now.  Jazz club affair.  Not too dark, not too bright, but just right.  Halloween seems to be the “holiday” that embodies that feeling like no other ‘cuz folks legitmately want to be spooked, and yet, wanna see the smiling faces of the babies who trot around from house to house, decked out in the latest in Tigger n’ Pooh costume wear.  “Tick or tweeeeeeeeeeeeeet”

The Root

Son of beast,
or man’s best friend?
If I leave you to be judge,
will the story ever end?
Dear Adam,
savor an apple.
These woods are all too clear.
Dripping stone raindrops,
hearken winter’s slumbering ear.
Spring upon human’s feats,
until the grass greets a deer.
Man grips rotten nature,
thinks it has no chance.
Grizzly chuckles at this sight,
says, “well, that’s no romance.”

Uninhibited

Let’s run away from it all; venture unto vastness.

Sail to a deserted island and weather the unforgiving winds.

Lounge amid the forest alongside colorful wildlife.

“Reconnect” with our primal foundations as we feast on this sacred meal.

Bathe in lukewarm streams as they cascade from right above our heads.

Lie down to rest upon giant leaves; sweltering humidity for covers.

Forget what it’s like to be human; remember what it’s like to be alive.
