The Stream of Magic

I’ve talked in these pages many times about the stream of life and the song, row, row, row the boat. I confess to finding this little song fascinating as an esoteric writing. Just recently, I have been through a very deep and long lasting depression caused in some sense by the break up of a long-term relationship and then the need to come to terms with being single, a bit isolated in the Czech republic and realizing I had lost sight of myself and what I wanted. Well, a few weeks ago, I woke up one morning and just decided that any rebirth had to start with changing a few basic things like diet, my weight and attitude. I woke up realising I was creating my own miserable reality by

Edge of Day

Memories painted in my mind Tapestries spun from emotion Hanging as if to dry A long and windy road trod barefoot As if in requiem to another yesterday The wind howls a deep sigh Inside my head the pictures float A technicolor movie of my life Endlessly showing to a crowd of one Somewhere, the Sea crashes over the rocks That sit at the core of my being Will a B movie actor suffice? My road is forked My path lies which way? Eternal sunshine Or, I simply fall away I am a dreamer dreaming I am an observer observing A growing point in time Treading a weary line The footprints in the sand lead nowhere Except around and around Edging inwards away The mountains in the distance Beckon me

Online Dating

I’m looking for a date Despite it getting quite late I’ve tried Tinder and Badoo And OKCupid too Yet, all I find are bots And scams and attempts To defraud Porn star pictures Some of them dead A simple reverse search confirms A profile to dread I send messages That go unanswered Poems and thoughts and things That might interest Photos of course I select only What I think to be my best I’m a real catch for someone But this makes no sense Online dating It’s a lottery The ladies in waiting Never reply I an’t get their interest I feel I need to lie About my age To get a look in I want to shout Look at me! I’m wealthy, creative I look younger than I am

A Kiss

What I would give for a kiss A hug by a warm log fire Someone’s hand in mine To feel loved by a woman Who cares for me What I would give for summer Hand in hand on a beach Eyes staring into mine The warmth of her silken skin Loved and happy This loneliness is hard to bear Moment to moment I despair My heart is an empty shell And life a living hell What would I give for conversation Over a bottle of red wine Candle light flickering a while Casting light into the darkness That I now call life.

Words of Power

Just recently, someone called me a ‘denier’. I suddenly found myself thinking about the things we call people – the words that we use and how we use them. It struck me that these are words of power. Words like ‘sexist’, ‘racist’, denier’ and so on. They carry a weight and a magical intent that has been placed their by the intent of the many times those words have been used. The are in a way a sort of egregore ( an occult concept representing a “thoughtform” or “collective group mind”, an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people.) in a word. Let me return to the word ‘denier’ as in climate change denier. When someone uses this expression against you it
