in a zen momentthe silence of the shadowsin a zen moment by randomaxes
counter projected as reverse sunlight
absence of time
sweet jasmine hangs in the air
on wings of freedom
as vaporous storm clouds
born; a dream--
lay waste with a smile
as the source of emotion
in a free-fall from heaven
the chill of known
converted to wishes
and fades on the path;
a loop of contrivance
happiness as a choice
WeepIt begins with the void—consumed and numb.Weep by Lupina24
Its grip tightens like a snake around the throat.
My jaw quivers and lips curl back
Trying to speak a timeless tongue
Too broken for words.
—Salty pools swell like rising tides.
Burn my eyes and I pinch them shut.
—The warmth spills and trickles down my cheeks and nose.
With each breath—
Strength is drained from me.
The steeped gall of disbelief and forlorn hopes
—Chokes me even more.
A blunt rhythm races in the temples
Carry on the ageless song —of Sorrow
Resonates from fiber to core.
Pressure grows behind my eyes.
Force them open
To a blurred reality
—sharpened with humanity.
True GentlenessGentleness is not weakness.True Gentleness by Lupina24
It is not frailty.
It is not false humility,
Or saving face.
Gentleness is Strength!
It is virtue of speech and manner.
When careless lies and curses scatter
It stands like stone; rooted in its foundations.
Gentleness is Boldness!
It is not blind followings or idle tradition.
To be the stability of one’s beliefs
It is firmly set with experience and ardor.
Gentleness is Robust!
It is the ferocity of forgiveness.
When the world plots and whispers,
It breaks the bonds of vengeance.
Gentleness is Resolute!
It is the cornerstone of understanding
To embrace of what is unknown.
It is a willingness to learn, accept, and respect.
Gentleness is not a ‘woman’s‘ virtue.
It is not feebleness of mind or body
To be lauded over for unseemly stillness.
It is not a lack of force or incompetence.
Gentleness shames the mean.
Gentleness disdains the vulgar.
Gentleness disarms the unjust.

Defining FreedomWhen one is offered the question ‘What is Freedom?’ which of these options are you likely to choose?Defining Freedom by Lupina24
1. The ability to do as one pleases.
2. The ability to decide one’s direction, purpose, or abilities that have or have not been provided.
3. The ability to use one’s means, to justify a purpose or desire.
4. The ability to direct and support one’s purpose with means or passion already in place.
Doing as one pleases can infringe on the freedom of others. This applied definition either causes harm to one’s self or to others that is detrimental to personal, mental, spiritual or social growth. Such a definition of freedom is capricious, unreliable and most dangerously unpredictable with lack of direction of action or thought. Thus this option causes more harm than a benefit to the individual or their neighbors it cannot be true freedom
The ability to decide one’s direction, purpose, abilities or desires that have or have not been provided is equally
