Hurricane Flame.....

Hurricane Flame

Keep it simple Rhi
stop tossing about
your Hurricane Flame
stop throwing caution
to the wind....
Instead....
shut down
be more like them
break don't bend
walk about
and blend
"in"....

Be a "Team Player"
not a Sooth Sayer
Zombies, Zombies, Zombies...
Pay your dues
and join the club..
"Mickey Mouse"
M-i-c-k-e-y M-o-u-s-e
sorry, I'm not a member.....

I'm throwing caution
to the wind again
its my middle name
and I know this will never change....
yet common sense and intuition
still abound
in between
to keep me sane..........

No way should we be zombies, and just "fall in step" I sure march to the beat of my own drum. Probably why I'm not accepted much by other people, but I digress... I was starting to get worried about you too Rhi...Hadn't seen you in a while. Gotta keep tabs on all my gals, can't let them fall without being there to catch them.

I love that picture, and I love your strength, you even see it in the poem.

I'm off to experiment with food, wish me luck, it could be really really ugly. hehehehehe

That's how we get all our new recipes is experimenting, and I have had a few of the OMG WE WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAINs. LOL But mostly it's good. We shall see.

Thanks for your concern Burfica. I I'm sorry I didn't get back to e-mailing you yet.

Funny I was just talking to someone about "free falling" and "trusting" someone enough knowing they would catch me. I haven't known this feeling in oh so very long. I'm always having to catch myself and or find myself catching other people! I'm so used to that. Its very hard for me to "free fall" these days for very valid reasons..but at least I'm "Not a member" of the "Zombies club"..and you know you and I have more in common then you even realize!

You take care now! Love ya and please feel "free" to e-mail me anytime you want to share Burfica.

Many Blessings,

Rhi

Your verse makes a most valid self reflection on those inner thoughts, ingrained and constant that not even time or will can disperse. Some lead us to greatness. Others merely keep us in our place - a tragedy of all mankind.

"whatz in your head.
