Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default 4 Wee New Poemies

THE POET RESIDES INSIDE

The poet resides in the heart of a man
and in the heart of a woman,
even in flowers
whether they be
male or female or both.

Written December 16, 2012

CHRISTMAS COMES TWICE A YEAR

Christmas comes twice a year
where reindeer dance a
bundle of cheer…
where raindrops glisten
all snowy and white
and
kids ‘n adults
play long into the night.

There is a Christmas there
in July,
and one in December, too!

Don’t you wish
that place could be
a place for me and you,
Too!

Written December 5, 2012

THE SWING & THE SKY
The swing sings songs
of leaves dancing
skies blue before
awakening.

Written November 17, 2012

THE GIFT

The gift
Is the beginning of the present

Open it
And see

Yourself

Written Nov 11/12

Default A surprise question

Not sure if there is such a thing as failure. Or success for that matter. I suppose failure would be not meeting one's expectations, hopes, dreams whatever they may be. Success the opposite. Yet, I have learned that often not getting what I thought I wanted was actually a blessing in disguise. The word-use you ask of is William Faulkner's use. So... we can only guess what "he" meant, and at how serious he was or not in the words. My skill talking to those who have passed is not great . Maybe someone on this site has great facility in that regard and could yak-it-up with ol' William F. and see what he meant, if he even recalls having said it. Fun to contemplate... What is your definition of failure? Success?
