That feeling

The fan on with the doona pulled up
Ankle scratches and earbuds
A hot shower in winter
Your first beer on a hot afternoon
A piss with a full bladder
Red cordial hungover
Rest after work
Downtime
The release of a new season of your favourite show
Finishing a project
The high after exercise
Competing with friends
Spending quality time with someone you love
A certain type of intimacy
Hugs and kisses
The right song at the right time
Good food
Waking up fresh
Finding a solution to a problem
Letting go
Acceptance
Washed and showered, teeth clean
Laying in the soft cool grass on a warm day
A nod, a wink or a smile
Going to bed tired and hitting the pillow
A good chat
A deep and meaningful conversation
The feeling that everything is ok.


You

You are safe.
You are loved.
You are listened to.
You are understood.
You are worth it.
Be Strong. Because you can.


Haiku on Poetry

Poetry is like music but
You don't need to know how to sing
Or perform in a band


Lizzy Browne

I love you totally
I'd never use Kung Fu on you
You taste better than chicken
You're more tender than an 18 hour allow cooked prime rib
Your eyes see into my soul and tell me "Be better"
Your hugs are like a warm shower when you have a fever
Your attitude is appropriate for most situations
Even your spotty legs are good
You are the pinnacle of Elizabeth's
I love every moment
With you


Sad Poem

Cry
Waa Waa
Cry
Sook
Waa


Maisey

When all is lost
And all have refused
The world is potential
With nothing to lose
All to gain
Without fear or doubt
No longer the victim
Your whispers will shout
For freedom comes when you finally let go
To the lies of your image
and the deceit that was sown
And you stand among-st men
With chin pitched horizontal
A man touched by life
Who learned his own moral
As you reach out your hand to shake on another
And too easily smile
For you see your own brother
And you embrace the old lady
Who knows what she knows
And you what you know
And you know she's your mother
And you bend down to your knee
Embracing one who is smaller
And you know by her eyes that she is your own daughter.

#POEM #POETRY - Ricky Nolan Browne


A warm midnight

Seen a new
Once normalised by time
The magic had returned
The night held an energy
A potential
Like the warmth of full sun
Shielded by shadow
The air was light
For a moment I had returned to my youth
With the surprise of tomorrow
And with the care free nature of coddled ignorance
In safe arms
I could sleep now
Assured of new breath

I want

I want to hear, I want to know, I want to learn, I want to grow, I want to play, I want to sow, I want to read, I want the flow, I want the truth, I want to know.


Timmy’s Pants

Timmy loved to sing and dance. especially in his favourite pants.

These pants he wore were bright green and were a site to be seen.

Timmy wore them all around, on the farm and into town, even on the football ground.

One day Timmy’s pants did tear, so Timmy cut off all his hair. Timmy’s mum brought a new pair, for her little man to wear.

These pants she brought were bright and new, but these pants were different, these pants were blue. Timmy said, ‘This will not do, the pants in which I sing and dance. are bright green, a sight to be seen.’

Now Timmy wears no pants at all, even at the shopping mall.


Barry’s Cheese

Barry walked into the church and straight up to the preacher’s perch.

Barry got down on his knees and prayed to God for some cheese.

Please God please, give me some cheese.

Please God please I’m on my knees.

God sent down his little toe, it said to Barry, “no, no, no”.

You will have no cheese just now if you want cheese, you need a cow.

“Ah,” said Barry, “A cow I need.”, and once again Barry did plead.

“Please God please send me a cow, send it fast, send it right now”.

So God sent down another toe, it said to Barry “Don’t you know?”

“If you feel you need a cow, you need some seed and a plow”.

Barry got back on his knees, looked up at God and started to plead.

“Why do I need seed and plow, when you just said I need a cow”.

God sent down another toe, which said, “This might come as a blow,

but to keep a cow it needs to eat and crops are what brings milk to teat”.

Barry got up off his knees and said to God without a please,

“I want my cheese and I want it now, you know where you can stick that bloody plow.

Why God do you bring me such pain, you know full well there’s been no rain.

We’re in a drought. I’ll reap no crop. You’ve sent no rain, not one stinkin’ drop.”

So God came down with cheese in toe. Scraped it off and said, “LET IT BE SO”.

I’ll give you what you asked precisely, but if had of just asked me nicely.

You might have got your rain as well.

Have your toe cheese, enjoy the smell.

I hope you’ll learn your lesson well”.


Hope

Hope is Good
Truth is Good
Don't take hope
Don't fucking lie
Lying is corrupted data
Spreading lies means people are walking around with corrupted data
Truth is not bad
Truth is not ugly
Truth is reality
Learn about people
And you learn about yourself
Learn from people who don't use truth as a baseline corrupts your mind
Narrative thinkers build on what they believe
Narrative thinkers don't let in ideas that conflict with their beliefs
Narrative thinkers are lawyers
They argue their case
Twist truth for their case
They distort reality and the world
Critical Thinkers are scientists
They don't make truth black and white, Good and Evil
They seek truth
They know they don't know
Because that is the truth
They add and remove
Hope is necessary
Stop shitting on this world
For something, you don't fucking know
But you spread it like it's the only thing
Fucking lies corrupt
We are divided because you turned a belief into a certainty
and it's not
Thousands of books to expand your mind
And make you less ignorant
Don't choose just one
Or only books related to just one
You have something to offer the world
Don't marginalize what you offer
Which is an antidote to some modern problems
All so you can say it's all true, it's all true
Fucking lies
Be part of the whole or fuck off
Your not helping


Really

Donald Trump is respected, I'm obviously not in on the joke, It is a joke, right?
Things are warming! That's Climate. Winter is freezing. That's weather!
Ignorant people have a voice and preach the team message
No one thinks their ignorant, except those who read
I'm not talking Facebook
Hate is spread easy
Ideas are like arseholes
Channel Seven says Carebears and Cabbage patch dolls are worth $3000
eBay must be doing TV advertising
The Christians are nice but stick with big business
Big business has power and could make the world better
Which hurts profits
The Asians were right, you should squat to shit
Black lives don't matter unless it's profitable
Jesus said something about love, but opinion and beliefs get in the road
The world could burn, that's OK, the end of days means Christians are right
I love everyone but have opinions, so I am isolated
40% of life has been wiped off the planet
That's OK, the world is evil, Jesus is returning
Choose the future or people, it seems you can't have both
The ABC is the enemy because they are not the voice of Big Business
Big Business protects certain Christian ideal to keep them voting non-green
Pro-Life, Environment is a scam by smart people (scientists) - Evil Cabal
Gays burn, marriage is for us, not for them
Evolution is without a doubt, that means facts and truth is a lie
Thank you, America and Big Business
Club Seals they don't matter, yesterday views
Sugar is good, Fat is bad - Money distorts truth and causes corruption
Love
Love
Love
Real Love
Fake Love
Truth
Care for us or care for all
All means future
Us means Jesus is returning and also death to reality
