A Fools JUMP… a pantoum


Hello and welcome to day #1 of Poetry month.  The whole month of April is about poetry.  All my days are about poetry in some form or another.  For the next 29 days I will be writing a poem each day gathering my prompts this time around form the Tarot card archetypes.  As some of you know, I’ve done this many times before.  I love being pulled back into the process.  Here is a website for this experience should you be so inclined to want more.  www.napowrimo.net.  My blog is among the many.

Also, I have a new blog that I am writing  in my local Crazy Wisdom Journal.  Here is that link… https://crazywisdomjournal.squarespace.com/blog/2014/3/31/fooling-around

Always love having feedback and comments.

A Fools Pantoum.

There is no foolishness wasted
A fearless jump into life with eyes open
With a heart’s willingness to allow
Love is spacious in its giving

A fearless jump into life with eyes open
That first step off from the being told not to
Love is spacious in its giving
Not held to the restriction of limitations

That first step off from the being told not to
This was not a frivolous fool’s dare
Not held to the restriction of limitations
A magnificent surrender to the known unknown

This was not a frivolous Fool’s dare
Giving up everything to have everything
A magnificent surrender to the known unknown
Life’s jump does not make for reckless abandon

Giving up everything to have everything
The Fool has the Holy Grail filling and flowing always
Life’s jump does not make for reckless abandon
Love and life is fully embraced in the free fall

The Fool has the Holy Grail filling and flowing always
With a hearts willingness to allow
Love and life is fully embraced in the free fall
There is no foolishness wasted

FOLLOW THE FOOL ANYWHERE

I know you Fool. You can’t fool me.

The way you jump into that free fall

Where trust is your absolute

On the way down to your up.

Funny how that works in the give in

To allow what will be on the upward

From that downward flight free

 

There is freedom in that

‘What the hell, I’m gonna jump.’

Knowing the worse that can happen

Is dying and you’ve been there before,

In that kind of foolishness without regard.

There’s regard now in the Every-lasting

You got your Joy on, and it’s all ready

To fly in imagination’s splendor

No worry in being caught in what’s unseen

It’s all good and what greets will lay

Some love all over you in the new beginning.

 

I know you Fool and I’d follow you anywhere.

THE FOOL’S MAGIC


28 july 2012  >  A Fools  kinda day.  

OLYMIC OPENING CELEBRATION 2012 …JUMP

 

Morning my foolish ones.  And I mean that is the most playful of ways.  And dare I poke a foolish finger at you by gathering you into my cauldron of Fools for this day so we, if you so choose, can allow the magic of innocence to lead us.

What ever does the Geezer mean by that?  WElll… In this world full of rules and boundaries, (it’s good to have them), taking a small risk or two or three away from the standard flow of life can be most magical and rewarding.

Do something you’d normally not do.  See what happens if you….  or maybe you might…..  Or you could always……

Fill in those blanks and make magic happen.  Get out of your head in judgement of whether you should or shouldn’t.  As long you you harm noone and hold goodness and kindness in this sublime act of Foolishness, go ahead and jump.   Jump on into life’s sea of wonder and swim deep.

Oh… and how about those Olympics.  Not a foolish move there I tell ya.  All though some of those magnificent athletes probably started out pretty foolishly in their innocence of what they were getting themselves into they honed their prowess into something that makes our eyes sparkle and we become believers in the wonder of their magic.  I know I do.

So my friends… wether you have an unrequited passion or you are feeling like there is no passion in you at all; take a leap on in to the mystery of your life and see where the ‘fall’ drops you.   Go Ahead… I give you permission to act the Fool and find your magic.

 

Wrapped in foolishness

Hail magic’s invitation

I leap into life
