Listening to Lao Tzu sketch
Philosophy’s plans

Symbol’s treatise
Faith opening meaning’s door
A fathomless depth

Understanding thoughts
Traveled through time’s corridor
Enters our mind’s eye

Soulfire Phoenix

Soulfire Phoenix

The Phoenix is a universal symbol of rebirth, reincarnation, transformation, renewal and immortality. The Phoenix represents all that is good and kind and is often thought to be the ‘feminine’ counterpart of the yin/yang of Universal Energy. For thousands of years the tales of the ‘Bird of Fire’s’ immolation and resurrection have been told.

The Phoenix is a self reliant creature, only one ever existing at any one time. It is it’s own father, mother and child. All spring from the ashes of it’s fiery transformation.

The Phoenix can bring forth past life memories and aide in the healing of past emotional traumas, both from this life and those you have previously had.

Ronovan Weekly Haiku Writing Challenge: Start & Hot #62

A weekly Haiku writing prompt to inspire those who join along. It is like putting together a word puzzle carefully. It is enlightening. Meet new people. Discover a community who shares support. At the end of each challenge we hear from Ronovan on his interpretation of how we all succeed. Sometimes its a review with words of support and sometimes its a list of all the participants with LINKS to their Haiku. Oh, it is an awakening experience to read what others have created with the two words for each new weekly challenge. If you feel such inspiration. Go to the LINK Ronovan Writes Haiku… Join a growing community. It is exciting to look forward each Monday to the two new words and then figuring out how to mold them into a Haiku. – jk-tsk


“Playing Games”


View artists carvings
Designs of creatures dancing
Running feet chasing

Answers then questions
Perceive the races outcome
Let beginning end

Crashing heads and balls
Taking down the hero best
Satisfaction comes

Love two one child wins
Hitting tramples tender minds
Winners hug at end

Punch the sphere with fists
Palms wanting to touch the sky
High as one can fly

“Awareness of…” #11

A – Z Writing Challenge #11
“Awareness of…”

Careful What You Wish For by Mike Parillo #11


Awareness of the mind
Breaking thoughts free from inside
Courting freedom’s sound

Desire reflections
Effectively face new goals
Find the dreams returned

Great awakenings
Heart mind and soul combining
Infinite power

Jammed mind – blind thinking
Killer of the self – murder
Lose feeling to live

Mentor guides t’ward light
Numbness is all consuming
Opposite is life

Possible changes
Quietly meditating
Rational release

Study eyes’ blackness
Trips the pain sticking the heart
Under it is fear

Victory achieved
Waiting to scare ghosts away
X-rated thoughts – deep
Yesterday’s darkness – grabbing
Zapped by lightning – thunder roars
