Yes.. tomorrow is Earth Day.. April 22nd.. and i seriously do not think that human is God’s favorite animal.. considering how many species no longer live here now.. as a direct result of human cultural byproducts…
In fact.. when re-entering the atmosphere.. when coming back from space.. those cultural by-products.. from a distance.. do look like.. a cancer upon the earth…
If humans are not careful.. to live in balance with GOD given Nature.. as they used to in hunter and gatherer days.. as foragers and sharers.. rather than laying claim and ownership.. in rule over Earth and GOD too..
God may place an iron fist.. in a place.. that is not very comfortable for humans.. at all…
But alas.. i am human too.. so if i do not become the change i want to be.. i too.. am
just as guilty.. as the other species killers.. of cultural byproduct way…
On that note.. in a brighter.. lighter way.. Love ya..:)
And hope one enjoys humans.. for the rest of the day..:)
AS best ya can.. on Earth day.. too..:)
Ah yes.. the snake is
the reptile brain of us
in style of cold heard
hearts of survival wHere
nary a line of escape can
be found whEre trials of
error do iLLude humans
under trails of lies from love..:)
How easy it is for choice
to display ignorance over
knowledge.. a place of death
for so many more animals
than us.. to share a place
of love.. in surrender to
survive together as ONE
race of animals as ONE..:)
Bones and blood and
Blood and bones.. a case
For peace is a place of
Weeds to grow in stone…
Ah.. the freedom is culture
Undressed to feel the love
Of soldiers who dare to free
Hate from stones so cold…:)
A map inside for humans
is already drawn.. and
then comes culture to
take that map away…
To study life is to know
innate instinct.. and now
intuition alive..as one
force of God asONe..:)
Ah.. yes Nature is
all about the business
of life.. while we worry
over burned out cookies..
Nature moves on to
the next rooftop of
only worries in survival
for now.. as is real..:)
Ah yes.. the trusting eyes
never seen or not in the
lines of Internet lore or
Truth.. the eyes tell tales
that words will never tell
in lives of lies or not
for hate or love in truth
of cyber not living at all..:)
HA HA! so true
all the lies of bleached
blonde hair and tight
skirts on hips of Southern
Baptist 60 year-old girls..
DO TELL THE TRUTH OF
SCIENCE NOW THAT THE
ORIGIN OF LIFE IS LUST..:)
Ah.. yes the unfettered
freedom of eights that
flow and go wherever
creativity without thots
does thoth’s truth come
true.. without thoughts
of boundaries that sew
heart and soul locked8..:)
Yes.. the children of dinosaurs
those feathered sung ones do
sing.. to fly above the rainbows
of knowledge always known…
To sing below the feathers of
what we’ll never know to earth
bound ever fly wHere dinosaurs
do challenge and adapt to flow..:)
And yes.. but ynot write
an octet as a limerick..
or a triolet as a violet..
or a violin as a viola or
a keyboard as a typewriter
of ebony and ivory flow
or am i getting close enough
to end this now at eight..:)
Ah.. yes the flower does peaK
up through the stones of weed..
and you know what i think.. i’m
getting used to this Octet thingY..
in fact this is 11 of 8 now for
lucky 7 before this one of 11..
and now all i have is two lines
for this one to see ya later at 8..:)
Ah.. yes GOD does
know now.. as tHere
is no escape from life
as is in living loving it
as well as we can for
now.. as one race of
human beings joining
in on living life as is now..:)
Ah.. the skunk does not
make that road to stink
with sweat of asphalt
killing way of mammal
too strong to stay dead
without hate of smell
to remind us what we
all have done to them..:)
Ah.. the house of nature
will never be destroyed
by those who love their
greaTEST Mother of ALL..
but then there are the others
the snakes without a heart..
who live for a life so far
away from SOIuLS love..:)
Yes.. “Bill’s” alternative to
‘sex’ is a cheaper.. easier
way to get along these
days.. Perhaps more will
learn in countries afar
before over frigging
more species to come..:)
Ah yes.. the Ocean is our Love
and certainly pArt of our Mother..
the connection of salt water
runs through our veins in
arteries pumping blood as
well as rivers attributing Love
in connection to others in
well of watered love asONe..:)
Yes.. so true the connections of
before connect us to what is
come of now.. and tHere is
no escape from planing this
existence on-board terrestrial
soils of feat so bare of too often
disconnecting eyes evolving no heArt
of sOul expressing SpiRiT connections..:)
SH** really happens
IT really does.. but
when it happens all
there is to do.. is cry
and do a dance for
the next days dance
in living loving life..
until the next time IS..:)
OK it’s time
for now to
for the next
that is sure
for now to
make this 19 and nine lines too..:)
but KATS do have nine lines after all.. don’t they..10..now..;)
Yes.. perhaps a new form..:) the LIVEKAT9LIVESWAY.. TO MAKE 11 LINES..
PLUS 12.. THE 18X8 ‘OTHERS’ FOR 156..:)
To be the water for Bruce Lee..
to be the air for me..
to live in soils of earth..
feet planted in feat of love
is a way for me to live
as tree of love as well..
as leaves of grass
standing tall alive..:)
Ones who stop worrying about death only die one time…
For others the death can be constant in life.. as worry is
no life.. as fear is the progenitor of most all feelings of
negativity and the strife that make like difficult for those
who rarely think or feel the present now as reality true..:)
Ah.. to spend a life in loving Nature..
is to temper the temperament of
human that rides WITHOUT LOVE
of fiery will and life dominating all
that is before and seen.. without
regard to the only true home that
is ours.. IN GROWING GARDENS OF LOVE..:)
Ah.. yes.. the nomads of the US
otherwise known as U.S.
are those who are brave
enough.. wild enough to
truly wanna be free.. And
that melting pot although
diluting..can truly come back..
IN Renewal of Spirit of AllthaTIS..:)
WitH cooperation and sharing.. inSTEAD..of HATE..:[
Ah the challenge of Mr.Toad’s
Wild ride of life.. never a dull
froggy moment is tHere ever
to be life.. ah.. the detours
can be scary but never the less
when wild-riders care more for
their friends than spinning lilies..
Love can be for the grinning win..:)
IN complex WorldS of WorrieS.. P&F..
both illusory and real.. IT is often
the ‘open highway’ that serves as
the only introspective time to even
be ‘me.. Ah.. our ancestors.. those
wanderers of survival.. at least they
know what IT IS like to be ‘me’.. in flowNow
with Nature’s beauty and challenge wOnE..:)
Truly to literally travel as
humans in the golden spiral
flow of moving like planets
around Suns.. is a way to truly
be one with Nature.. in balance
tRuly wOnE.. without rules of
Culture.. Innate instinct..and
Intuition flows win iNOW..:)
So.. that makes 26 Octets..
now.. one for each letter
of the ALPHABET..;)
AND 26 POET’S TOO..:)
other than me..
who doesn’t really
write an Octet
But i love to try….
i cry.. i love to try…..
AND PRACTICE AGAIN AND AGAIN
AND AGAIN.. KNOWING I WILL NEVER
EVER GET IT PERFECT.. IN A PERFECTION
nope, human are not careful and not well balanced. way too selfish.
Things Could Be More Reliable
Truly the key is individual mind and body balance.. one step at a now..
as balanced human beings need not seek to rape our environment..:)
Oh what atrocities that we are responsible for.. despite our better knowledge too… humans seems to divide them self into me and others.
YES.. ironically enough.. the tribal instinct that makes up most of the old
patriarchal manufactured Abrahamic Tribal leaning GOD..
is The overall downfall of HUman now.. IN DEATH TO the
surrounding living ecosphere as well…IN PART…
Ah.. but perhaps with freedom of information..
sooner or LATE.. the truth will come out..
but alas the tribal instinct will go on..
as that too.. is part
of ‘our’ inherent
stewards are not commissioned to destroy and waste, but to preserve and grow – great sea pics! It’s cold and windy here ( a touch of snowflakes this morning )
Ah.. snow flakes.. hard to imagine in April at the North Florida Beaches.. but rain.. ah yes.. rain starting on April 10th and not ending until a most beautiful day all day yesterday.. with all the trash washed clean ofnew beaches of life..
except for the condos and hotels haha!..:)
And yes.. the mission is to steward OR ELSE..;)
THANKS for stopping by
and hope you
a great now
in the sNow..:)
hopefully warm bike riding weather soon!
Thank you for the wonderful trip to the beach and today on Earth Day, it is the perfect post. I’m afraid it’s too late with all the havoc we humans have wreaked, but hopefully, we can still do some good.
Thanks Kanzensakura for stopping by.. and delivering those nice words of appreciation…
Earth day is truly every EARTH day for me.. and i aim on saving THE EARTH WITH OR WITHOUT the help of ‘HUMANS’..in every unconventional way.. that no one has potentiAlly thought or felt before.. smiles..
And so far.. i’ve been underestimated falsely..
all too many times before…;)..
18 octets, & two bonus stanzas; with less than three dozen photos, wow, you rocked the prompt as well as your vibrant corner of N. Florida. Sometimes I wonder why I never see gaters in your images. Other friends in Louisiana, Mississippi, TX & Florida see them all the time.
Haha.. i am an Allahgater..;)
i tRuly enjoy ‘these’ ‘prompts’
in a playful way..
suppose if more of us
tHere is hope after all
Hmm.. i think i do a new form..
or is it the essence
I admire your free association dialog and that you pose more questions to be answered….all but for the grace of God, there go I, right?
Thanks Kathy.. and i ‘guess’ the ‘short’ ‘answer’ IS.. i treasure the gift of life from the ALL Natural GOD that IS.. and i respect THAT gift in being all i can be in every imaginable and creative wayS to JUST do THAT.. IN A CREATIVE flow of lucid dreaming life REAL.. AS IS FOR NOW.. IN WHAT i can CURRENtLY view.. as TRUTH AS LIGHT..:)
IN ALL the tints of black and white.. light AND DARK.. and multi-colored hues that COMES IN..:)
AND.. i also Love to share all that i do.. with never expectation of receiving.. or limitation of
giving.. set forth by old ways.. to control human freedoms.. with the caveat of course .. OF never intentionally harming or taking advantage purposefully..
to take away the TRUE WILL OF
UNDER AND OVER LOVE
TO give UNCONDITIONAL Love
IS the greaTEST…
TO KEEP giving ‘U’ LOVE and
It is wonderful that you agree with the fact that we all have to take a stand, every single one of us and for that we must begin by taking the initiative ourselves.
Happy Earth Day to you, my friend.
Thanks HA and Happy Earth Day to you as well.. Friend..:)
I am a powerful believer in the Interdependent Relationship
of ALL THAT IS biggest and smallest..
from the Alpha to the Omega..
wHere the wings of a butterfly
can change the world..
and words… short or long..
and emotions and reasons too..
Or a disabled boy watering a sapling that
becomes a beautiful tree that inspires the
Love of a great political leader who helps to save
the world… with the assistance of other helpers too…:)
So yes.. even the leaves of trees can help save the world..:)
There is no effort to save the world that is too small.. but none..:)
We live in a world where nearly half an overpopulating species of humans, NOW,
are required to mate and have children whether IT’s tHeir nature expressed or not..
And if one or two children is enough.. the ‘regulations’ of these ‘Religions’ require
MORE infants until one can no longer reproduce.. WITH stress coming with that…
Sure.. there are days where ‘more’ is better for social cooperation and survival..
But those days are gone.. and truly the REAL GOD OF NATURE REQUIRES
CHANGE FOR SURVIVAL.. TO go AGAINST THE GOD OF NATURE TRULY
IS TO FACE THE CONSEQUENCES.. AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT
THAT FOLKS START LISTENING TO THE MESSAGES OF
THE GOD OF NATURE THAT COME THROUGH
ALL REAL INNATE INSTINCT AND
INTUITION wHere GOD lives
PERHAPS A GREAtest
microcosm of this is the idea
IT’S not about ‘me’; but about a savior..
per one man who is required to come back
and save the world.. yes.. the Southern Baptist
Church Shirts where children of GOD are taught that
GOD is somewhere else other than within ‘ME’ AND TRULY
THE SADDEST PART OF ALL.. IS EVEN HISTORICAL RECORDS
NOW INDICATE THAT THE REAL MAN JESUS IF EXISTS THEN.. IS
MORE LIKE A HUMBLE YOGI/NATURIST LOOKING TO THE GOD OF NATURE
FOR ANSWERS TO SET HIS PEOPLE FREE THEN.. FROM THE ILLUSIONS OF GOD LIVING
SOMEWHERE ELSE FOSTERED BY ‘CONTROL FREAKS’ WHO JUST WANT TO DOM
i nate other
humans through illusory oppressing ideologies to repress and oppress GOD GIVEN HUMAN NATURE .. PARTICULARLY REPRODUCTIVE FREEDOMS FOR
ILLUSORY SELFISH GENE IDEOLOGY.. AND OF COURSE SUB-
JUGATION THROUGH ILLUSORY FEARS
From a perspective of Human Freedoms, more fully expressed, as GOD given Nature;
the U.S. and other tRuly freeR countries are countries that are the metaphor ‘Israel’,
as providing a place for truly FREEr children of THAT ALL Natural FREE God of Nature..:)
Slavery; per the lack of freedom, comes in all colors, many national origins, and
AND, the full spectrum
of gender and sexuality as well…

Happy earth day, but I am wondering if somehow I missed the eight line poem?
Actually I respond to 18 poet’s Octet’s with Octet’s of my own.. as documented in the first comment..
And actually there are eight lines in the linked poem above.. however.. they are connected with ellipses.. as Word Press margins are not wide enough for my lines…
I could have used a tiny font to fit them in.. i guess.. however.. it might have made it.. next to impossible to read.. if i did that..;)
But seriously.. this is my first move into attempting any kind of poetry ‘science’ form.. ever in my life.. so really i just misread the prompt as allowing lined stanzas moving over the margin length.. so in a nut shell.. i guess.. i screwed up..;)
But again.. i think i did my ‘HAIL MARY’S’ FOR REPENTANCE good ENOUGH in the comments section .. haha! with all due light heartedness intended..as WELL..;)
AS due respect..:)
And Happy Earth Day to you too.. and thanks for stopping by and allowing me to write one more Octet.. Fred FREE style..
yes, we do a great dis-service to this world in the callous way in which we treat it. As a proverb of the North American Native people goes: “we did not inherit the earth from our parents, we are borrowing it from our children.”
With a full-blooded Sioux Great Great Grandfather.. and Cherokee in another Maternal parent line.. my spiritual roots are more indigenous with NATURE like the American Indians than any book of God I know..
But never the less.. all religions are interesting to me.. comprised of what i see as truth and mis-truths.. but truly i cannot find anything incorrect..
WITH a Love of Nature equal to GOD.. and the GOD that is Nature as well..:)
The world would be a much better place if we lived in balance with Mother Earth.. like the really smart indigenous matriarchal leaning peoples do and did.. before becoming adulterated by materialistic collecting and dominating patriarchal cultures/religions.. in all forms that comes in..as not so well for either all people as equals.. or Nature as our parent as IS for and in NOW..:)
Thanks for dropping by with those Universal Words of Wisdom and TRUTH AND LIGHT.. AS WELL..:)
Order is a product of:
Life, Will, Love, and Intellect in that ‘order’…
Generally speaking, ‘the rule is’, a ‘housewife’ who does not experience the positive PRO-SOCIAL emoting POWER of the emotions associated with Unconditional Love has a ‘nasty’ ‘DIS-ORDERED’ ‘home’…
THAT is often the result of social abuse, either in childhood or later that can, WILL, and does KILL human pro-social emotion, by various biological and environmental mechanisms…
MOST all rational decisions are preceded by emotions; take that out of the soup of human and one has ‘mindless’ robots, more or LESS; yes, so-called smarty pants zombies…;)
SNAKES have Life and Will.
Dogs have Life, Will, and Love.
Humans CAN AND DO HAVE Life, Will, Love, and Intellect.
But truly the biggest roadblock in human experience, to have a balanced life,
both in connection to other humans and NATURE AKA GOD, IS THE DEATH OF LOVE;
AND DEFICITS OF PHYSICAL INTELLIGENCE,
AS PHYSICAL INTELLIGENCE IS RESPONSIBLE
INCLUDING THE EMOTION OF LOVE.
IN HUMANS, the Death of PHYSICAL INTELLIGENCE AND
Love often means the Death of Pro-Social Cooperation,
Will, and Intellect; and potentially even life; in THAT DISORDER.
And truly there is SYSTEMIZING science to THAT (NOT THE FRIGGING SCIENTIFIC METHOD ALONE);
for FOLKS who explore THAT ‘LITERATURE’, IN DETAIL; AND BIG PICTURE THINKING AND FEELING;
PER, WHAT IS REQUIRED IN HUMAN PHYSICAL INTELLIGENCE;
THE CORE OF ALL EMOTING HUMAN EMOTIONS;
FOR MIND AND BODY BALANCE

Overall.. I guess .. in regard to overpopulation and
no apparent human solutions.. In part..
THAT is why catastrophic cataclysms of Nature
can be important equalizers for environments of
parasitic cultures of so-called intelligent creatures…
Truly.. Time can erase human suffering.. and the core issue of that suffering…
Things have a way of working out.. with either positive or negative consequences…
But meanwhile.. I’m gonna party like it is 1999 YOLO/YOLN ‘NOW’ style!
With Zero worries.. As we are truly lucky FOR NOW..
LOTS OF US ANYWAY IN THE U.S., AT LEAST,
To live When.. How.. And Where we do..
Relatively speaking.. YES..
It’s paradise For Now…!
And hopefully.. there will be no children pro-created by that partying..
AT least not.. By me.. But i cannot control
what others do.. in their co-creating re-creation time…;)
AS i celebrate my 56th RAVE dance week with
all the cool college age folks tonight
at Old-Seville Quarter.. with more photos
coming on THAT after 3 AM or so…:)
A man of many words and insight-fulness..the beach pic are great especially of the sky. I haven’t been here for a while glad I came for a visit.
Yes.. thanks for the visit Truedessa..
and the kind words you share here…
I’m glad you enjoyed the beach pictures..
as they too.. are one of my favorite things..:)
Hope you are having a great time in now.. as well..:)
Gorgeous photos and, yes, humans need to find a better balance that protects the earth!
Thanks for coming by C.C. and i am so glad.. you enjoy the photos.. as photography is what i attempt to do.. as a poetic expression..as well…:)
