Mood: The Usual
  
Jack Kerouac,
Under a pine tree
Is trying to make love
To the empty mountains.
It’s true he sees knowing
Like some silly older brother,
Stems from knowing nothing really:
“There’s nothing to be afraid of
and nothing to be glad about.”
That’s his golden emptiness.

And chilled on-edge trying to drown
Out the semblance of emptiness,
I ring myself in remembrance;

You see I was shown a map last night,
And with the primal terror of a child
I saw bangs falling into bangs,
And the great ground swell coming back
And all of this sustained by pulse,
Pulse which would scoop you up in a wave
Try as you might,
To sit alone under a pine tree,

And It forbade you from saying profound words
To empty people, or nothing at all
After all your words can’t be taken back
There they are striving,
Only to be a little more child-like.

I haven't been writing much poetry lately, perhaps because my free time I could use to write I use instead to entertain myself mostly online. It's kind of a mental masturbation thing I suppose, trying to stay alert and responsive with other such poor souls.

The weather will be the weather. Ours in northern Louisiana, USA has been very pleasant of late. Fall is in the air but we were in the low 80's yesterday when I was outside working on house repairs.

I suspect that what induces me to write is to actually read what others have done, particular poetry wise. I find it has a unique depth to it, often as not... perhaps a window into the subconscious of the author. In that case, reading my own I'm definitely a bit crazy. ;)

Take care.

There's an Irish author out of Belfast I'm following on twitter. He was mentioning how bad the weather was the other day. Imagine that.

Does being locked in by weather give more time for writing? Still, I would like to visit some day. The video programs seem to all be filmed in the Spring and Summer... probably for good reason.

Kindest regards,
Lloyd

Thanks for the comments!

Your journal captures a lot of truth, in my opinion.
