Hollow is the Mind

Hollow is the mind as you shut out the night

Images drift in as visions across the screen as you fight

The torments of a soul suspended within the illusion

As you twist and turn in the jungle of confusion

Darts of blame

Spears of flames

Arrows of truth piercing the layers

As they burn into your soul, sending out prayers

To all who would listen

Hark!… As tears glisten

Rolling down, they fall through time

Tasting their salty brine

The silence echoes back across the void

What is this world in which we’ve toyed?

This Garden of Eden in which we play

Why do we destroy and cause so much dismay?

The Visions erupt clear and sharp

Each one like a new thrown dart

You erase them, scrubbing them clean

Your mind the blackboard…… the screen

You take up the chalk and in Big Letters you write

There is only one answer for this world ..

UNITE

A common theme, a running thread

To pull together all pounding in my head

Nations against Nation Man against Beast

I see it all as the story is unleashed

And as the Hollow is filled with thought

The restless mind in-between Worlds is caught

Seeing the Visions of Natures wrath

And all who will suffer along her path

Is it any wonder as I twist and turn

The Visions of our future are of Peace I yearn

So close your eyes- close them tight

Hollow is he mind as you shut out the night.

    It is so difficult to live in our chaotic world at times and to know that the domino effect of choices human beings make will affect so many more than we will ever know is eye opening.

      Yes, Renee, Until we Human’s realise we are all upon this earth plain to grow and develop and understand that we need to get back upon the path of enlightenment whereby we learn that ALL upon this Earth plain is Sacred, and it’s not just carved out for human existence. Where he thinks he can take that which he wants without consequences..Man thinks himself superior.. When in fact he will learn Mother Nature is far superior to any living creature, or of any manmade invention he has contrived to control his environment in which he lives. We all upon this evolutionary path will see we are ruled not by any manmade law. But by Universal Laws and what we are creating we shall reap.. by the laws of Cause and Effect.. Mother Nature’s Voice Has yet to be heard loud and strong.
      Thank you for your most welcome Comments here Renee.. 🙂

    Where does it all end Sue , certainly not in this world or our lifetime
    The Soul is Eternal and this world we live in is a learning process
    We exist in a hologram , until all accept the universal arms of peace and unity this world will continue in the evolutionary path of spiritual enlightment , some will survive spiritually and some are doomed to perpetual reincarnation until enlightment is achieved , that is why the Soul is eternal , all Souls are not in accord but progressing in different planes
    Cheers Princesss and keep smiling

      Hi Ian.. it’s so good when others just get it… and understand…. and you have grasped it so so well.. Yes we are upon that merry-go-round of perpetually learning, growing and attaining that light of knowledge that takes us ever further upon our paths of enlightenment.. Earth being that very School in which we are taught the lessons which enable us to progress upon that path..
      The time now Ian is upon us when I think Man will learn many lessons as to how he thinks he can continue to live separately from Earth. We have polluted her skies, Oceans and Lands, and we have made extinct her animal kingdoms, as many species have disappeared forever.. The Earth Mother is a living breathing organism a Living Planet within the consciousness of the Universe.. She is getting ready to bring about a change.. For if she doesn’t then Mankind will destroy her.. The very planet in which he relies upon, he is destroying.
      If Man looks back throughout his known history he will discover much.. But there is much not written in history books, that is because History goes further back than historians would have us believe..
      Those Ancient tribes of the Aboriginal people of your own Land Ian know so much more than modern man, as do the elders of the Native American Indians. And the time is upon us to look to the Earth and her lessons may be harsh but in doing so, she will enable man to build a future whereby he can pull together and become united in the common good for all.. And that means to abandon following his selfish ways of greed and the material.. For that was never meant to be his pathway.
      Thank you Ian…. you have got me started! Lol

      Thank you Christine.. When I wrote this.. No I didn’t have 9-11 in mind as a specific.. But I did have in mind all the horrors that go on throughout our world. And how Man’s inhumanity to man is so abhorrent.. And you have to ask yourself WHY? And when you get down to it.. It is purely for Greed, for selfish gains of control and power, whether that be in dictators of their countries or Oil or Drug Barons, or be it the politicians and those in power behind the scenes… The Bankers who control finances making or breaking.. Whoever we think about there is an element of wanting to control another.. Ruling others and enforcements made upon others…. While I know we have to have law and order… So too does Nature.. But She has known how to balance.. She gives and she takes.. But the Human Race had continually now Taken.. And it’s now time that Mother Nature is addressing that balance.. She is enforcing her Rule.. And we will see what we have dished out now come back to us 10 fold.. That is what I see within my Vision.. And that is why I sometimes wish, my mind was Hollow and empty and asleep like so many upon this planet.. They are asleep, unaware of what we do to this planet every day.. as we Overfish. Kill Whales, Dolphin, Cut swaths of Rain Forests down. Go to war. Watch as millions in Africa Starve… those are the images I see… and like my friend Ian says.. Yes.. “ Where does it All End?”…. But it is time that we Re-awakened up to what it is we are doing.. and learn that the only way forward is to learn to live in harmony both with our fellow man and with nature.
      Thank you Christine for you visit and Sorry for my lengthy answer to your short question..

    When the linear time folds into its self ,all we will ever be are specks of dust blowing around in the cosmic winds.
    Of course there is the chaos humanity has planted and nurtured on this planet.
    We have opened the womb of Mother Earth,and tilled her insides out.
    Then with the greed and contempt of ignorance we have fed off this ,like thirsty and hungry scavengers.
    You have always known the script ,the book of life,as it warned us never to do unto the Earth as we have.So Hollow is the Mind indeed .
    And my native friends and the ancients tell of the next world,perhaps a place were one day,one time within the great spiral of life we will learn.

      Hi Lorrena, always good to see your comments here dear, Sorry that your logo is always looking so ‘Devilish’ lol.. but its adpt in the fact it shows you have one beedy eye on my posts LOL.. Your comments always show you have much knowledge and wisdom in the way of the Universal workings my lovely friend, And yes you are right in that the Ancients knew and know much and we should heed what wisdom they have fortold and fortell.. For the Spiral is every onward forever turning as we learn that there is far more to this life on Earth than what we have been brought up to believe… man is indeed Ignorant in many things and yes.. Here’s to the next Life and lets hope Mankind will eventually learn..

      Thank you Marja, for your visit, Its always nice to meet new faces and to get their opinions on subjects.. Yes it would be great if mankind could Unite.. But looking at the world as we humans have evolved I think we have gone past the “No Return” point of Unity.. That is unless something drastically alters our way of life.. Only then do I see Humans pulling together in order for survival and even then I think there would be many who would still pursue selfish ways and trample over others in order that they survive.. We haven’t a very good track record unfortunately in that department.. But we can only live in hope that somewhere within our existence we can learn that what we do to others we ultimately do to ourselves.. and that includes the way in which mankind has raped and pillaged our own habitat that of Mother Earth.. and you know the old saying… “ What Goes around Comes Around” and I think that what we have sown in the past we are about to reap in the future..
      Thank you For your contribution here Marja.. Dreamwalker..:-)

    A very nicely written piece of poetry Sue and a collective assemblage for all that happens in this crazy mixed up world, I was just watching some MSN videos earlier in the day of 9-11 and even now it is just totally unbelievable, indeed surreal even though I remember watching it all happen on live news at the time.

    I know that your poem isn’t directly associated with 9-11 but I think that all these things are connected and that the ills of the world intertwine, which is all the more reason for us to think in a positive and optimistic way towards the future, the darker side is always ready to blot out the sun but with a good sense of tomorrow we can lift the darker times and replace them with a lighter and brighter future for all, but it won’t happen overnight my wonderful great friend it will take a lot of time to conquer the evil that surrounds this world, and all that we can do is to hope that things will change for the better, and not for just mankind I mean for all that lives and breathes in this world.

    Have a lovely rest of weekend now Sue 🙂

      I so agree Androgoth.. As Sad as 9-11 is and all the other wars and horrors that occur around our Planet.. We have to lift our thoughts… and we have to try and not to get caught up in the perpetual circular motions of Fear.. For as much as we wish to honour such loss of family and friends in these tragic of circumstances.. The media has other agendas, as it replays and keeps alive the fear And not for one moment should I say we should forget…..But the Fear in which we get caught we have all got to be careful me included, as to not get caught up within its snare..But those Hollow moments within the mind let all the turmoil of man’s destruction drift in especially in the silence of the night And that is when my mind wrote these words..As I tossed and turned wanting nothing more than Peace.. But seeing the horrors of man’s inhumanity to man and beast.. And Yes I know also that Much Good deeds are done upon this plane which go unnoticed..
      .. But while ever the Population at large thinks in Fear it stops itself from expanding its conscious awareness, and impedes the progression of peace love and light.. For if we allow the Fear of the Dark to get its grip, It holds us back from progressing forward…
      What we forget is that what we think we attract… Thought is a living Energy.. and it Manifests.. So let us hope that eventually the Light will prevail.. and the Balance is restored to Mother Earth.

      Hi My lovely friend… Oh so good to see you here again 🙂 Welcome….. Yes in an ideal world.. But then I guess thats why this planet is why we come to learn… for we need both light and dark in which to grow.. But the Balance I see and feel we need to work on and we need to try and heal this World and Unite her and her people or we shall reap what we have sown.. Many Blessings to you and yours dear Alison… 🙂 Take care and you do much to heal the world and those upon it.. so may I say a thank you too, for all you do to help heal her people who are in need of love and care… Thank you ..

    It is wonderful to think and hope that ALL people (on Earth) can come together in peace and harmony someday and to work towards that goal. At present a realalistic goal of attaining peace with self would be number one on the list. Until that is reached success on a grander scale is unattainable.
    being at peace with self means no fear, no doubt, no remorse, etc.

    your writing style has a way of drawing the reader closer and closer to the story

      That is all we can hope Eddie.. Peace has to start with Self.. I so agree… we need that peace within to free that space within the mind in order to allow that Light to filter through in order that that Dark Hollow can be filled with love light and peace… As we forever do battle with the Dark and Light which dwells within all of us.. 🙂 Many peaceful thoughts returned my friend 🙂

    Very powerful graphic to back a very expressive poem 🙂 But let’s not forget there is good and light in us humans as well as darkness and destruction…we will become disheartened and disillusioned otherwise, believing we are a lost speices that has no hope of change and become filled with negativity…we can build a bright and positive future! We can become more than what we are now and step with real hope and optimism into the dawn light of a bright new world if we go forward with genuine positivity…of course there has to be balance and it will take time to change our ways and our world..but as we have said before time is an illusion…caused by the passage of history….but if we are walking into the light then time will no longer matter anyway…

    In short ,..lol…I’m right behind Androgoth’s comment! I think he’s absolutely right in what he’s said here…possibly…lol because it happens to echo my own thoughts on the subject! lol 😉

      Always great to see your paw prints and hoooowls upon my pages Wolfie. :-)… I couldn’t agree with you more.. and Im sure if you look at some of my return comments you will see I whole-hearted agree with Androgoth and yourself. Balance is what is needed…We all add our light to the Consciousness of this planet..
      My poem reflects my sleepless night when I see many things of past and many things yet to come.. Many things I wish I could not see.. And I hope that our collective thoughts prevail in bringing about Peacefulness within our life time.. I really do.. For the consequences if not are disastrous for the human race and our planet.. Love and Light to you always Wolfie dear Protective One.. 🙂

      Hi Raven so good to have you fly on by.. So true there are many who show their light in this world who go unnoticed, I feel many will have to learn to UNITE in the future as we will have to start and learn to reach out and trust again.. For we have shut ourselves off from the communitiy spirit as we lock the doors behind us as we sit in front of our TV’s watching a violent world in which we are led to believe we should be fearful and distrusting of..Maybe the future will show us that we will have to learn to Unite … (United we stand divided we fall.).
