Black Honey

"
Black honey
Ultimately outwardly reflecting soul ornery
Sweet but bitter
Befouled root produced tarnished blossoms
And all too often I'd reach for black honey to feel nourished
To feel accepted,
Ingested a fruitless project,
Honest
Black honey,
Intergalactic black holes and bowls of porridge
Often lost, too invested, 
Or feel
I'd peel back foliage to unveil the north star
Pacified in passion
Black honey
Or poison ivy guidance guise under every lesson 
Destined in blatant estimates
Unsure the distance between each wavelength's crest and peak
Cast in dream, the day didn't speak
Or I'd cast skippable rocks
And lures atop, Minekills placid pond waterfall
Spots of uncertainty
A testament to your figment of imagination
Shelter, brush, and thicket,
Or a safe haven or a cave,
In which you'd depict as open arms
Intimate
Or inadvertently effectively inevitably distant
Elicit thought provoking survival tactics
Black honey
Sometimes a sweet deceitful rare treat
Drum beat
Or rain dance to drown out impurity
Sometimes indeed riddled with insecurities
I'd attempt to bridge conscious and clarity
A close soul
Sometimes tainted,
Black honey.

It did and you are welcome.
The feats of duality slumbering into and out of consciousness as perfect as reality itself. Comparison gives perspective.

Thanks Ana!
Black Honey. The joyful and sad tasting nectar of life. Sadly we can't live life without a taste. A good read with great visuals. Thank you for the writing.
