Well Advice

well advice

Pray for well being
Spinning pennies splash for luck
Smile when floating

Now, heads up face me
Hoped not to land on my tail
One side to many

Struggling to tug
Fortune lassos the prized calf
New Year’s stranglehold

Resolve end to end
The snake devours its tail
Gulping inside out

Hard to swallow Acts
Four Gospels trump testaments
By-laws changing not

The best pages glued
Rip and decipher The Word
Peel away The Truth

Puzzled under minds
10,000 pieces left out
The cornerstone trips

No detours allowed
Focus on the best angle
Where you’re coming from

Go ahead, look back
Steps heard from behind spell what?
What tells me to turn

Who speaks righteously?
Authority proclaims you
Peacefully resigned

Allotted from straws
Drawn in to hold the short one
As fate allows whatnots

Come what may! Come now!
Guessing becomes tiresome
Hoping for more hope

New hope’s there are not
Same old hope we know so, Well
Drink my pennies down

  1. Mighty meety matey! Extraordinarily well penned within and without. I’m highly cued and deeply dippy 😉

  2. Heaven’s to Betsy, bruv! 🙂 Oh! How truly characteristic of thyself!
    With the glittery glamour released, thou shalt now remove the cue
    from thy pocket which holds a gazillion brain cells in tacit agreement.

    Thank you kindly for the comfy complimentary cadences!
    HaPpY HoLiDaYs! to you, good sir! Peace and luvz, UT

    P.S. On another note 😉 I stumbled upon the above haiku monster yesterday morning whilst perusing through some old e-mails. Then, this morning, I decided to see what was up with Astrodienst. Ah-ha! It just so happens…yesterday, I began an 8-month long excursion with Jupiter square Saturn. One old phrase caught my eye, and I found it highly interesting. Oh, heck! I’ll just show you what I mean:

    During this period you are likely to proceed with considerable caution, which has both good and difficult effects. You are much more conscious than usual of the distinctions between things, making it hard to see the “forest for the trees.” This extends to your attitudes toward others, so that you may be inclined to concentrate on people’s negative characteristics and to overlook their positive traits. On the positive side, this influence can give you great intellectual precision. If you have to do any work that requires extreme precision of thought and planning, now is the time. It will work especially well if you have previously outlined the general plan and left the detailed planning until now.
    (LoL My retirement plans came to mind per happenstance)

    For CROSS-referencing purposes, I got out my book
    “Pathways To Wholeness” by Renn Butler, in which to every transit is devoted a chapter, and at the beginning of each chapter, quotes are given by famous people under the influence of said transit. Right here, right now, I feel like putting these two quotes up for grabs. How perfectly engaging of me, eh?

    “A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.” Eleanor Roosevelt (1954)

    “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.
    Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul
    be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired,
    and success achieved.”
    Helen Keller (1938)

  3. dear UT, hands down, or up, your vision has dimmed, old age … bitter experiences … yet still is hope, for water to revive the roots, and clear vision to wipe out your past.

  4. one last thought before this evening ends and morning comes … one very special life ine, to the ones we love and hold close, as parents, brothers, sisters, sole mates notwithstanding our stomping 🙂 …. wholeness is inherent in birth, we spend a lifetime it seems, mostly lost, trying to find out our back … not the future, but flashing lights & drum roll … to the present, where our true home lies. 🙂
