. I would like to invite my dear WordPress friends to join me me in a reachable place where we could meet as whole people, our bodies, intellects and souls together in a green meadow with fresh food to eat there would be no musical treat no guitars, no lyrical singer just we friends, in a field sharing, singing our own sweet melody original and unique ~O~ or I could be over-polite and invite my friends to invite their friends and friends of friends and friends off friends of friends unending each batch would be a little different, like Chinese whispers their principles and beliefs rippling rolling like a broken string of love beads from the nucleus to increase the size of the field I would need to flatten hedges killing small creatures concealed within murdering trees that allow us to breathe then the friends, friends of friends and friends of friends of friends would come in their millions brandishig their news, their views, their sense of fun, their blithe spirits and their shrunken souls their charity and greed their intuition, wisdom and ignorance their atheism, devil worship and all kinds of godliness their hearts black, white and all colours in between and just as in life we would need to listen hard to hear the melody beneath the deafening cacophany of humankind as it screams out its differences
Thank you for the inspiration Sestina!
