It’s a bluetiful life (easter egg fun)

I’m getting a tingle of connection

Can I share with you a path to freedom?

I have done the easter hunt

and I no longer want to play.

I played a similar game for some years already

So I leave the eggs now gleaming

for others to find some day

Though I love that you prepare others for the fray.

You’re doing important work

which I hope will be kindly rewarded

in a true-loving way.

I prefer to now feed beauty to my mind

as the cloudy-with-meatball skies

sometimes threaten the climb

and if you “like” to skip along with me,

let’s not hide.

Pretend you are not slaves to Then

Act like you are a free agent Now

If I leave some breadcrumbs

will I share with you a trail to freedom?

Or will it lead to witch hunts

and terrifying ovens?

Still there is always a chance

to escape the candy crush.

If it suffocates you

more than saves you

leave aside your mask.

Go the distance

take that one step

outside the glass.

There is a code for

the brave new world

it’s “stay safe”

and “stay home”

meanwhile Bro Peep

might be killing

the tax-burden boomers

with a custom virus

and blaming the opposition

by grinding their long-built economy to a halt

the one supported by a 20th century fox

too-long buying china dolls.

But can we turn the tide of the great machine?

Yes we can, the remedy is true love

Know what I mean?

It sounds too simple

a pill to swallow

but it’s a better pill

than the bitter one

that tries to make us hollow.

Follow the swallow’s flight above the trees

See how they fly in the air so free

Allow your soul to live in this moment

Since this moment is the only one

guaranteed.

Stop drinking the poison

Stop tapping the sweets

Focus on the flowers

and the bluetiful people

that you meet.

Oh and pretty please

remember to smile and wave

when you’re walking

and singing like a

lark

down Love street.

Follow the fool on the hill

and the eggman β€”

tap your feet

to their

bluetific

beat.

Partly inspired by/in answer to/ the recent numero-linguistic splicing genius of Charlie Zero, and his comment-invitation this morning asking me to participate — however, I’ll be on lunch duty in this Zone and at that time. ;)) (Attempting an Auvergnat Good Year, but without the wine. πŸ˜‰πŸ΅ ;)) If you like to try a post-easter egg hunt, do head on over there, and join in — but don’t let the red pills do your head in. ;)) There are large pockets of love and life, outside the 2D gloom. While remaining/becoming aware, let’s try to find and focus on those, even on our screens, if/while cooped in our rooms. xoxoxo Sending love and light, and heavy draping blossoms of wisteria, moonwort, rosemary, lilac… all in purple-fire, full spring, zone-of-emptiness bloom.

  1. You covered it all with your poetry which I enjoyed very much. I noticed people are very happy and friendly now when we pass each other on a long walk. Many smiles and waves. It is quite beautiful. Thank you and sending you love and flowers ❀️

    1. Thanks so much Summerhill… I went out on Friday and noticed the same. The sun was also shining, maybe that improved outlook on life’s game.
      But yes! Such kindness, and such good-vibes-only! I loved that little outing, when I went out to get some groceries. ❀️
      p.s. your art is still amazing!! πŸŒ»πŸ˜πŸ™

  3. Beautifully well said and expressed. 3 Easter eggs I discovered within your amazing poem.

    1. Judi Barrett – which spawned a great movie ‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs’. πŸ™‚

    2. A Good Year directed by: Ridley Scott. I’ve seen pieces of the movie but I hear from others that its good. πŸ™‚

    3. Bro peep – rap artist tim woods lil bro peep. If I got that one right.

    I’m very proud of you and what you have done with this incredible poem.

    I haven’t seen people out much here in L.A. still in quarantine and staying safe. πŸ™‚

    1. Ah Charlie I’m so glad you liked it. Truly means a lot to me. And you’ve found some eggs here so easterifically. 1. Yes! She makes complicated world topics easier for kids to understand. 2. Just a very favourite movie that once helped inspire me and my main man. Though our version is very different, we live the simple life as much as we can. 3. This actually started as Bo Peep – a bit of a (possible/false-)shepherd(ess)(/prophet) reference, living near fields as I do, but I switched it to Bro Peep, because my meaning was linked to β€œ1984,” and β€œbrave new world,” too. (And I perhaps mistakenly thought Bo Peep was not clear enough. I might change it back, since the meaning of the nursery rhyme I also find to be true, same as I do the one about the Billy Goats Gruff. ;))
      I send much love and heartfelt gratitude to you. And indeed, stay safe, I truly hope that you do. Your work is inventive, important and inspiring, combing old ideas with new. πŸ˜™πŸ’•πŸ’›πŸŒŸπŸ’“πŸŒ±πŸŒ·
