A Quotable Quote


“All that we are is the result of what we have thought; it is made up of thoughts; if a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.”   – Buddha

I thought we’d seen the last of mass shootings

at schools, concerts, churches, and theaters

but I guess my thoughts

were not strong enough

perhaps not pure enough

What will it take?

I keep thinking and hoping

I keep speaking with passion

I keep acting to be the example

But what will it take?

I wish happiness will follow.

I wish truth will follow.

I wish we will all get together

to find a solution.

 

 

My Brain


“A poet needs to keep his wilderness alive inside him.” – Stanley Kunitz

This poem was among the notebooks I found in my attic. I do not what made me write this one.

My Brain

My brain went bungee jumping

out of control

It bounced up and down

as would be expected

furious leaps and bounds

I thought I’d  be ejected

out of my soul

my brain was out of control

but it finally calmed down

allowing  a deep meaningful thought

to rise to the occasion

It penetrated a cloud

as I yelled very loud

and rain poured down

voluminously

cleansing the earth

of hatred

My brain may never bungee jump

ever again

but if peace should be needed

I want it to catapult

to the heavens above

so that the earth

is drenched with love.

Melba Christie

 

Infinitely Infinite

My Brain Went Bungee Jumping


My brain went bungee jumping the other day

It bounced me up and down

until it finally allowed

one of my deep thoughts

to rise along with it

the thought penetrated a cloud

and it rained love

all over.

Imagine that!

All this because my brain

went bungee jumping.
