Tethers

She  tried, she tried to leave the ground

But her tethers were just too profound.

Her wings of gossamer now thread bare

Had lost all shape and begun to tear.

 

No hope had she that she could fly

No more than the birds above would let her up into the sky.

Her head bleeding her body splinting

She had no hope left, she was a lamb duck sitting.

 

Hope and faith had waved goodbye

They had left her out there to die.

And yet she yearned to fly to join the birds up in the sky.

If she could only escape the bindweed  and fly.

    Here’s a morbid thought. —- Round up. Soak the bindweed in glyphosate wash it in dioxins from agent Orange — let the bindweed farmers get prostate cancer as it is gender specific and merely walk away. Stroll. Amble. Hike. Flying is not necessary. —- Bear —- I send you prayers for good judgement and courage on blue smoke

        Yes, of course there is a gentle road. Just trying to bump that depression aside with a bit of absurdity. Sometimes a little anger helps. Just enough get through a bad place.——– The Blue smoke is cedar, it is a messaging medium. Other smokes work also, it has to do with intent. Good judgment and courage which you are naturally inclined to anyway.

        I have always preferred the gentle route. Though often it has turned out not to be the easiest of ways to go. I appreciate your well intentioned smoke I love the smell of Cedar wood. Thank you again.

        That is your natural, inborn good judgment. I am sorry to have shocked you with my violent images of setting you free. I fear passion frustrated morphing into self-harm. I have seen this evolution even into death. Please be at least as gentle with your own self as you are with the dunder-heads who restrain and misunderstand your gifts due to excessive thick headedness and generalized stupidity (the latter is me). Thank you for all you have done.—- Bear —- p.s. for clarity of mind burn sage
