The Awakening They Propagate (REVISED)


I especially like spiritual advice when
it tells me to love; when my colleagues
convene at ten for tea in communion, I
surf the Internet looking for a message
to improve my mind-set

Anne Du Quesne again today with the
message so general: whatever you feel
at this moment in time indicates you are
awakening (sorry, I am not – but not for
want of trying I assure you)

Everything conspires to aid you (the
world is overpopulated so yes, human
life is blessed) enjoy your evolution –
invoking the planets in position doing
good things to our minds

I’m glad the astrologists wish to guide
us in positive directions, I’m glad their
advice centres on lucidity, yet in terms
of information, I gleaned nothing at all
except they wish for transformation

From what-is to some kind of Utopia; well,
I already live in one by keeping my eye on
things I find attractive – unfortunately in
a country with per annum murder rate
higher than in war areas,

More people here have died violently than
in the Gulf War, this is quite bizarre, it so
out of synchronicity it does not look as if
the people here are participating in the
awakening astrologists propagate

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
