A Beautiful Mess

A Beautiful Mess

A Poem by KWP

It’s been a while


A Beautiful Mess 

a rainbow of experience 

equals life 

beginning with empty slate

we build blocks to

bring experience 

bring life 

and it’s a beautiful mess

to sit back and and observe 

the rise, the fall, the cycles of


to remain equanimous

stuff happens, stuff breaks, life hurts

this beautiful mess 

hands held forward 

offers gifts

little treasure if insight 

can become little treasures of light 

if we allow it

and this beautiful mess 

shakes us, breaks us, 

knocks us down

screams us to acknowledge 

the innate knowledge 

we all share …

spoon-fed information 

will never allow our own thought 

How will we ever resonate backwards to

the original mustard seed?

I am in love with this

Beautiful Mess

A journey of rolling hills and plains. Storms and sunshine. A great reminder to keep your feet on the ground. I like it.

ahhh thank Gabster:)
Life is messy
For some people that could be beautiful
For others - anything moving away from idealism - is ugly
I love your take on this concept !

Perhaps we create our own rainbows, make what we want of life> Seems your words infer that what we do, what we see, how we feel is how bright or dim our view of life is. Which the pessimist, which the optimist

I wonder, do our rainbows shine brighter and clearer when our mood is good, hopeful.. or the reverse if what's around us, knocks down intention? Food for thought here, and, thank you so much for it.

So hope life is treating you and family, kindly, and safely.

"innate knowledge/ we all share" I love that kind of s**t.

This is technically a poorly written poem with more than an error or two... but,

that's not why we read each other.

Your my favorite writer here.

We are at a cross roads > A melting pot > nothing apart from wars like this since the Industrialising stage with building trunk roads and rail roads

Aviation firms seeking aid (Mega millions of aid)
Certificates to say you are clear sent to your non existent smart phone

What will come out of the melt???????????????
