A Colour Reading

The Pleasant

Alert Self-Protection is of great importance | Consciously seeking enrichment through expanded horizons | Self-development is unthinkable without loving attention | An agreeable life perceived only through vigorous self-assertion | Powers focussed on purposeful improvement of the given situation | Constantly striving for inner balance with deliberate self-determination.

The Unpleasant

Anxiety ensues with a frightening lack of power | Helpless in the face of continued lack of enjoyment | Unable to truly embrace life, troubled by inner restlessness | Without peace, devoid of resolve – struggling with own heavy burden of problems | Must hide the emotional sensitivity | General well-being and balance disrupted by a gruelling test of nerves.

The Overview

My behaviour is characterised by a need for power and unwillingness to dance to another’s tune. I’d rather speak my own truth, demanding attention. My ability to dominate brings much self-satisfaction, particularly when I can easily exert my control.

Alice Springs

This Forgotten Place
Where lost and restless souls
come to paint themselves
Ochre, the red centre
and dance under a silent star
Sun Worship
Draws out the poison
We, the parchment
Elemental
Reuse, rebuild – and wait
Until air thick, pregnant
a scent on the wind
the rain is coming –
Pours like holy water
Over sin
The earth’s skin
We re-hydrate
Fill out our limbs
and soak the brain
Water becomes
Uncounted, without passing
The change.

Word Porn, Scorn

While we’re on a roll
and the prose flows
I am reminded of old poems
I wrote in my teens
Awkward, not particularly good
but of course, at the time
I thought they were magnificent
and read them loudly, proudly
to anyone with an ear
But it troubles me-
I have to wonder, now
will I feel the same
about these words spilling out?
will I cringe as I read
what I presently believe
to be good?
