Openhearted Wise

I have grown accustom to a different kind of love
One which expects nothing and ignores the best I'm of
Cynical and bracing for the worst of all good turns
Today the fulcrum shifted towards easier goodness earned

Today I'll go back towards an effortless fold of joy
An effortless fold to welcoming my unique envoy
Kindness sending ahead waves of gratitude
Kindness sending with it unfamiliar offerings deployed

Love without the romance
Love without the ties
Love without a pairing
From any who defy

Acquaintances and others
Brought in with this tide
Are the very creme of humanity's
Openhearted wise.

envoy - a messenger or representative, especially one on a diplomatic mission

Beyond Reasoning's Sight

The way one lives is practical
Even if it's fun
The way one lives is spherical
Beyond perception spun

The way one lives
Compared to those
Who live much different lives
Is utterly unconnected to
Competition or to drive

Even if coincidence
Joins you as a pair
It doesn't change the difference
Which eludes you unaware

Joined destiny apparent
Can disappear in seconds flat
Or it can provide you escort
Or be your torment or your cat

Characters switch often
Characters can meld
Being co-dependent
Regardless of how you felt

Even memories differ
Or disappear one day
Leaving you with others
Than your companion's account say

No one knows how others
Effect you or your life
It doesn't really matter
It's beyond our reasoning's sight.

Breaking Duty's Orbit

A life of details creates
A gravitational pull
Keeping us in orbit
Suppressing our Free Will

Gather all your best thoughts
Jam them in a hold
Produce decisive action
Igniting launch of bold

No matter what the action
It will surely do
Overcoming with some traction
Out into the blue.

-Kelly Voelker

The Contamination of Influence

Of "free will" I will only say
We let it float remiss
Taking in what others think
Our own thoughts seldom stay

So rarely purely doing
What ourselves only would do
We are a personality composite
A random passive stew

A melded caution factory
Producing day to day
Predictable linear actions
Manufactured lives don't sway

The swinging undulation
Of actions purely felt
Create potent momentum
Overcome intentions quelled.

-Kelly Voelker

remiss - lacking care or attention to duty; negligent.
quelled - suppressed

Balanced and Blind

A simple cool breeze
Of the natural kind
Has a pure frequency
Which clears the mind

A simple cool breeze
Comes quietly inside
Not to be noticed
Just balanced and blind.

Be Not Manipulated

Be not manipulated
In order to be stimulated
You choose the focus
On what matters most 'cause

Beauty is the only
Beauty is the point
Not reflected off the mirror
Reflected to appoint

Which is real and which is not
Which fits in with
Natural thought
Don't be fooled
Don't be bought
Marketing's direction
To be fought

-Kelly Voelker

appoint - determine or decide

Dairy Diary

The diary of dairy
Is a simple view of time
Perceptions changing radically
Influenced reaction mine

What stopped me from enjoying
A cold white glass of milk?
Someone spinning fantasies
To coerce and to bilk

Now I'm drinking glassfuls
After meals and after dark
Feeling how my instincts
Deserve this hopeful spark

-Kelly Voelker
