Mutterings from the Heart of a Rose...


UNIVERSAL OASIS: NO LONGER THE DANCING MIRAGE

NOTHING.

ABSOLUTELYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY EVERYTHING.

WITHOUT A DOUBT
MY FRIEND

LAUGHTER
The glimpse of moment

The world
A show

A funny show of funniness

Imagine that
My friend

Not a sound
A sound is near
That only speaks eternal thunder

The dance of feathery glee
Shines brilliantly

Fertile green
Simply pristine

Somewhere
Everywhere
Nowhere

A PARADISE THEME MY FRIEND?
And yet

THE TIDE RUSHES PROJECTING GOLDEN PINK MOON
LAUGHING TO SWIM
THERES A SWINGING OASIS HERE IN THE HEART



VICTORY

YOU WAKE UP TODAY

FINDING YOUR INNER STRENGTH AS SMALL AS AN ANT

YOU DISCOVER THE FLAME ALONG THE BROKEN PATH

MOSS COVERS THE GROUND AT YOUR FEET
A THICK CARPET TO DANCE ACROSS

A BIRD ECHOES
TREES LAUGH AND SWAY TO THE ETERNAL CYCLE OF
DESOLATION



LIBERTY ISLAND BLISS
BY DAESHA ROSE

It was a never before.
New visions that have been envisioned by many.

The computing birds of wetland stalks' click clack clatter away into the expanding day.
The light shines bright on a gray canvas
Gray matter thinking a little too much

The beauty sleeps
She wakes today

Miracles wrapped in cloudy cushions

Citrus minds flood

Running away from HOME
Always knowing the way

A road
Muddy
Mystical mission
But we do not venture today
Mind a brick wall
To tall to climb

An unsteady wave of possibilities
Creeping in with unknown strength & invisible motion

You wonder if you're "crazy" in a societal sense

You walked the trail of wonder
The trail of madness
Expecting rain, but it never came

ONLY RAYS
Purely golden
Existing in bliss

Flowing through a spiral
And sinking below

JUST BE!
The crazy one repeats in LINE

Children of the future
Hear the words
Believing it all

The words slip sideways
Disappearing down a deep dewy trail

The crazy loon ate the alphabet

Lost symbols leave thick thoughts in a daze

A New World is built
Upon the ruins of the conventional wisdom's

These bones that move me along the labrinyth of ABSOLUTE TRUTH
Are gone
Left behind

body in Mars
flame somewhere on the dark side of the moon

DRIP
DROP
Eyes water
Not my eyes
The bones' eyes

And where was I a few moments ago?
Now that time slips into distorted motion
Where am I?

A bold dreamy package
Holding the keys to the cage

The melodious soul stirs
Flapping velvet violet feathers

GOING
GOING
GONE.

A BIRD LANDS SWIFTLY UPON LOTUS FEET
ANOTHER BOX FALLS
REVEALING A TURQUOISE KEY




BIG SKY

NIGHTMARE SHADOWS

STRAWBERRY FLOOD

WOMEN FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE RIVER

FORESTS,
HORNETS,
ZEBRA STRIPES

CARRY ON BUTTERFLY
BIRTH STRUCK BY NEMESIS

CATS' MEOOOOOOWWWWWW

BEAT.
JAZZ.

EMBRACE THE SCENE
DOWN TO ITS MURKY CORE

???????????

RUMBLINGS ECHO THROUGH success

FIRE!

MISCALCULATIONS AROUND THE WORLD,
AROUND THE CORNER,
AROUND THE HOUSE


JUST TODAY

SMOOTHNESS ON MY BUDS
THE SWEET COCONUT NECTAR
THE DAY
SIMPLE AND ORDINARY
FULL OF BITTERNESS AND BOREDOM

TICK
TOCK
TICK
TOCK

THE PERFECT RHYME WHEN IM SOUND ASLEEP
I RACE TO THE CAGE
REACHING MY TEMPORARY FREEDOM
AND THE ONLY PEOPLE I NEEDED TO SEE
I SAW

TICK
TOCK
TICK
TOCK

COVERT OPERATIONS BEHIND THE IRON WALLS
REVEAL THE ILLUSION OF MY SECRET BLISS
THE WHISPERING SIGNS LEAVE ALL MY QUESTIONS ANSWERED
AND THE THOUGHTS LEFT TO BE
ARE THE ONES THAT NEVER MATTERED

TICK
TOCK
TICK
TOCK

ADVENTURING OUT OF OUR GLASS HOUSES
WE SEE THE OVERWHELMING BEAUTY OF OUR THROWN AWAY STONES

THE HIDDEN CREEK
GREEN&BROWN;
RUSHING UNDER OUR FEET
THE BERRY BUSHES COVER OUR EYES
BUT WE SEE THE SIGHT
BLACKBERRIES SHRIVVLE IN THE BLAZING SUN

PERFECTIONIST OF NATURE CREATES A STICKY PUZZLE
BUT THIS CLOWN IS JUST A STRANGE SPIDER LIVING IN HIS ILLUSION OF A WEB

TICK
TOCK
TICK
TOCK

THE HEAT HAS MELTED DEEP INTO THE EARTH
THE GLOW OF THE ROCK LEADS A WAY
LEADING ME INTO MY OWN PLACE
MY ONLY ESCAPE

TICK
TOCK
TICK
TOCK

AND I DON'T KNOW IF IM ASLEEP
BUT I NO LONGER HERE THE CLOCK

UTOPIAN DREAMS


Feeling so much.
Beauty.
much thought.
Perfection.

The flames saunter
Rushing visions of fading velvet
Into this world of anything and everything you'd want it to be

"you should come out here"

I should go in there

There is a place
Where an object is space
Embedded deep within
THE Security OF THE ILLUSORY TIME

I see the faint flicker of footsteps far behind
Tapping into the rhythm of the night
Soft whistling of the gas lantern

The red lights
Tigers in fire
The stars aimlessly drop to my toes
Deep distance echoes
Nature is seen
Heard
And
Felt

Touched by a wave
A candy coated glaze of laughter
Laughing in the rain
Laughing like tomorrow will never come

Whispers and wisdom upon my lips
My beauty
A place
Beyond the space
And it's inside
Invading
Pushing and pulling me into these somber attractions

And it's a big fuckin joke!
It doesn't matter what time they say it is
Or even what time it should be








Ants
Discovering the flame.
The burdens of cost.
A whimpering tale of woe and misery.
And I laugh


Hostility always fades
And I smile

We share a meaningless moment.

My feet are they glistening?
Are they burning your tears 'til you can no longer
Keep your mouth shut?

Darker over here
Or darker under the light?

Pleasing rushes of exhilaration
Wrapped in a mystery
A haze drips into my blood
The leaves fall
The crackle and disarray of what's to be
What's supposed to be
And what will ever be
And I know
It's here.
Liberation .
Chattering on in the night
Insanity just for the sake of camping

Smiles and sore jaws
Why have we been laughing for hours?
Nose drips
And that is just plain comedy!

Hand spinning
Swimming in euphoric bliss
And these pages belong to the ink
And I think with an unlit stick dangling from my lips

FEEL THE EARTH
BARE
AGAINST THE MAIDENS FLESH

DANCING THROUGH THE AIR
A RIPPLE OF PURPLE BALANCE
SUSPENDED GLORY
STICKY MARSHMALLOW HAIR

Writing is a waste of my time
My Time
That seems so flexible

Sitting here
Puzzled
Wondering
If I can tell
Just what happens when I dream utopian dreams

FREEDOM

THE DEATH TRAPS ZOOM ON BY
Free
A power that is me.
Hand.
Thoughts.
Words.
And what's to say
When anything is something
And something is everything
AND EVERYTHING IS NOTHING
VOID……….

Visions of something else.
It's green
It should be grass
Because it's coming up from the ground

THE MOUNTAIN MEN TRAMP UP THE HILL IN THE EARLY MORNING
LATE NIGHT HAZE

WHISPERING WORDS OF WISDOMS AND CHOPPING DOWN TREES WITH AXES

SHE IS ENTERING INTO AN UNKNOWN
AND WHERE HAS SHE BEEN?

Urination calls
She enters our world

Dickface!

How did you get her shoes on?
3 sizes two small and on the wrong feet
ya don't say!
she might be crazy today!

my mind is a poem
but these words aren't poetry
only a taste of momentary reality
A VERY BLAND TASTE OF THE ONE TASTE

AND WHAT TIME IS IT
THE WORLD WONDERS?

NO CLOCKS HERE
THE PURPLE RABBIT IS NEVER LATE

BACK INTO THE CAVE
"night nite"

THE WORLD IS MY LIGHT
I TURN ON TO WRITE

AMBUSH!
AND WHAT THE FUCK IS SHE DOING IN HER CAVE?
SLEEP?
NOT A WORD
NOT A NOTION
NOT A SLEEPY POTION FOR ME

AND FOR A MOMENT
IF YOU CAN
IMAGINE
How we must look
How we must sound in the eyes of normalcy,
Not the drug induced youths' biting at the countryside
And none of this is crazy
Just suppressed visions of another landscape

DREAMS
JOURNEYS
TRIPS

LIMITLESS BOLD
VAST SUPREME

A RAGING SEA OF BLISS FOR ME

So it's time for the vacation to end
Snoring
Coughing
And me

Siting by the fire
5 hours supposedly go by

Time
Running through the woods
Not knowing the way
And how could the babies not be awake

Laughter and craze apparently woke them up

Mind..

Another blank page
A darkened frost
A thick psychedelic glaze

"I'm going to sleep"

Laughter
Silly girl

And we all must sleep at this time, because the whole world want's us to be asleep, too

Leave the expectations on the floor

A meaningless void of who cares &
Who remembers

Will I feel the shackles when others are around?

It's cold.
Warmth.
Numbness.
And the possibility of it all being real
But being real or not is an undefined value

And I know I must captivate
Conquer a raging sea of fishes

And I think to stop all this nonsense
Locked away
Safe and sound within a tent

Hilarious ideas of what today is
All day to live
So why sleep?
Sleep only a word
Only an idea
Only comfort

Darkness without a light
The world is asleep
So how should I write?

Writing is physical
Superficial
The words
The symbols
Represent a whole and the whole is what I am NOT CONVEYING

My duty
To accurately portray the events of history
Recording each and every war waged upon the twin souls of a countless desire
Somewhere not here


A gun blows
Maybe a canon

VOID

Kiss the sky
Wrapped around the mist of life
A stream
Floating away

A column of perfection
The peak rises

I sit shivering looking off the ledge
Numb throughout
Fostering these thoughts perceived only as humor to me
But to them it isn't anything they can see

No explanations…
bones
spark
I'm on the edge

which level should I stand
And which level should I fall?


The Joke

Just a toothy grin to convey, precisely, what it means to share this stolen moment of a kiss

Burning candles whisper

The wax
Drips
Drops
A
Secret

Impressions of dusty fingers stay behind
Leaving a trail


The candles blow silent
The whisper is a joke
The comedy
Is always over your head



ONE

THE CREATOR CREATES CREATOR BECAUSE THERE IS ONLY ONE SPRING
ONE SOURCE OF DIVINE ABUNDANCE

EVERY MANIFESTATION
KNOWN AS YOU AND ME
CREATES FOR THE SAKE OF CREATING

A UNIVERSE OF THERE OWN MINISCULE MIND
OR SO IT SEEMS

YOU ARE GOD
THE EYE IN THE STORM
THE EYE OF THE TREE

YOU ARE THE GODDESS IN SWEATPANTS AND HOLE-Y SHIRTS

SYNTHESIZE THE DYNAMIC void
RE- INTEGRATE CREATION AND CREATOR FOR THE ONE

THE ALL
THE universe
The illusion
The reality

United as always the scene is the seer
The seer is the scene

ONE single creation of infinite diversity
Infinite organic experience

And this is to be and to not be

Imagine that.


Velvet kisses

Crawling primordial earth
Living loving lady

Long stems shooting to the ocean
Shooting the roots into the stars

Flapping fins of finicky fish
DIVING DOWN IN THE DEPTHS BELOW

A VIOLET TURQUOISE EXISTENCE BLOOMS INTO A BREATHTAKING ARRAY
Melodic kaleidoscope wonders

I love you

Radiant comfort always in flight

I love you

TODAY IS.

TOMORROW IS THE SAME SONG
SO SING ME A TUNE
BECAUSE I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
