Yes, I Chose Sleep Over the Eclipse

eclipseAs you all know, there was tons of hype in regards to the eclipse that occurred on Monday. Yes, ideally I would have liked to have watched it live myself. But at the end of the day, I chose my eyelid eclipse over the actual eclipse. I also figured the video and pictures professionals would capture would be much better than my own. And I was spot on.

I think if I lived in the path of totality I might have been much more inclined to loose some sleep to watch it live. But not being in that path, not having glasses to truly look up and watch it, and not being enthused about the dullness of experiencing it through a pin hole camera… I chose sleep. Boy do I feel rested and my retinas are totally in tact.

Abundance in the Corner

Abundance in the corner hiding like a haystack needle.
The human race staring down a hair pin turning gun,
which they just don’t realize has an irremovable safety cap.

The heavens rain chocolate marble drops,
that have outer cushions to brace your mouth from the heavy pain of solidity.

The Good News Network blasts truth through an air horn,
which as always, is muffled
by the evening’s headlines.

We need to look very deep
into our inner core
for the funny bones
and the smiling serotonins.

They mime the truth into an ear that can’t hear
and into an eyeball looking through a pin hole.
This pinhole has the power to reflect amazement
that we can’t see with the naked eye.

Just one example, an eclipse.

So jump your senses into action, like a cryogenic therapy chamber.
Search for the glory of existence
in the haystack of despair.
