Ya! Beech Walk......(Paranoia….A Compulsive Rant) - Poem by saadat tahir

Advancing design of a wave.

A lecherous path I see it pave.
Barefoot amble, beach you not.
Evil spirits within it caught.
Jagged bits from smiling shark.
And lovelorn idlers vain bark.
Step love careful as you walk.
Curvy dunes; shall, you balk.
Watch that drone where it be.
Hovers about too close to thee.
Seagull swoops to take a whiff.
The hummer too vying a sniff.
Barnacles lie around an wait.
Feast on you in silence sate.
Hate the zephyr for its touch.
An the land, footsteps clutch.
Oh the brushes! Prune to bits!
Ankles tap to whack my wits.
A brazen sun glares to extol.
The bino hunkered on that Knoll.

                                          Art goals sacred geometry
    Why work so hard? Are you a slave? Do only the things you enjoy. Create out of passion but relax.
It feels as if the days are just floating by.
                                         let the forest heal you
                                             I was doing some more reiki and light language energy healing
                                              today and I got a vision or just a mental image when she was working
                                             on the throat chakra about me around the time of 2012. I was in the
                                             woods and I was getting many contacts from higher dimensions.
                                              I just felt this energy guiding me there were these especially beautiful
                                              trees in the meadow I was at . I think they are called paper birch trees.
                                              I was singing trying to clear the throat chakra and these birch trees
                                              it's as if they were emitting an energy. Like they were home. This
                                               is around the time the e.t. contact started. When we awaken everything
                                               around us comes to life.

                                           Royalty in a past life. This life was on earth eons ago. I was
                                           in a temple dressed in the most beautiful linens. My skin
                                            was of an olive complexion. I don't think "whites" existed in our
                                           society. I miss that life. A vision, a muse enough to inspire
                                           any painter. What I remember most vividly was the texture of the
                                           clothes I was wearing and the jewels which fit me so perfectly.
                                            I took pride in what I wore. I remember I LOVED to dress up.
                                            I guess that's normal when you have all the money and can buy
                                            anything you want. The rock/crystal I'm wearing in the photo reminds
                                            me of those times. Of course the jewellery I wore back then was
                                             much more precious.





                                          Reminds me of me, but the jewels and the clothes
                                           surpassed even what Angelina is wearing. Just stunning.
                                           #goals for this life, build an empire
