Contemplation

2009_072524thjulyMossley0097

Well you know where that thought got you, don’t  you? Best not let that mouse gnaw into the liquidity of the brain, it sure is dark in there and a bit gooey; I mean tacky and sticky; how all those nagging worries and painful exorcisms get stuck; you know what I mean surely. Blessed be the contemplator who washes the passages clean with the inhalation of a rose’s perfume or the practise of gazing into a book, the stare into one single word where a kind of magic takes place, where a zoned out, tranced out instance within helps sort out the rubble stuff, the nonsense of it all, like after a heavy rainfall we all love the freshness on the grass and in the trees; even if we have been caught out in thunder and lightening we don’t mind getting drenched in that newness, the beginning of something unexpected, do we?
