Of Rain On Rooftops | Charissa’s Grace Notes

Ahhh, how I love this poem!!

So, new readers and potential “Constances” (Constance is the name I give to those who become “Constant Readers” and is my deep thank you of gratitude and wonder):

The best way to interact with my blog right now if you want to access all the living work and art that lives in the marrow is via the calendar in the Right Hand Column.

You can use that to jump around to various days.

Here is the important information though:  it displays the current year…SO, to access a previous year and month, please scroll down to the BOTTOM of the blog and see the footer calendar (located at the very bottom left).

There, you can select a drop down menu that shows month to month from year to year.

What I find fun is to go to today’s month in other years…and then pull that down from the menu and load that page.  Once it is loaded, use the calendar on the Right and click on the date…if I posted on that day, it is hyperlinked to that day’s postings…

And in this manner you can not only access my poetry, but the context it was birthed in and thru…and I think that it begins to show the depth and breadth of my heart’s reach.

I am not posting current writings because I am mostly keeping notes and drafts, filling my artistic ditty-bag.  This is because I am doing other projects that involve visual arts and creating thru that means, as well as new spiritual practices and involvements.

Besides, I find that I must cry out against the thing with human skin that shits from its heart every time it utters something…that thing ttaf which is the mere familiar of the multitude of monsters that have become the living dead without even knowing it.

This poem though…what a treasure and delight to me it is.  I think I captured it just right.


and it is in night…

like a babe in fresh blankets
snuggled and seeing,
quiet and jumping

in jammies with footies
singing of safety,
hot chocolate and nibbles,

then raindrops on rooftops
tingtingtingthrumthrumthrum…

i am the moon | Charissa’s Grace Notes

I am posting my own poem again…because I have new readers and I want to introduce you to my true core rather than the prophetic broadsides I am compelled to post in the times of ttaf and monsters.

This poem speaks about what it is like to be “Othered”.

as i sit in tall grass
silky-lashing back and forth
quiet like tiger-tails talking
in air with movement

i think about the earth
spinning in space
circling the sun
amidst the stars
(but none of them close…

The Plot to Subvert an Election: Unraveling the Russia Story So Far – The New York Times

ttaf supporter:

you are on the wrong side of history.  When you see it, up there…you will mourn your foolishness.

There’s still time for you, but barely.

Will you dare to read?  Or will you pull the ostrich blanket of “fake news” over your head?

“…But to travel back to 2016 and trace the major plotlines of the Russian attack is to underscore what we now know with certainty: The Russians carried out a landmark intervention that will be examined for decades to come…”

At Ease In Zion | Charissa’s Grace Notes

This is to YOU, supporter of ttaf.

No punches pulled, straight to the heart…faithful are the wounds of a friend, and deceitful are the kisses of the enemy.

You stand condemned in what you approve from your own mouth.

I don’t know what I feel stronger, pity for you or grief.

Alas…

Read it if you dare.

“the punching of one’s own face, one’s own eyes
the throwing of sawdust at everyone
the bashing of beams against dull skull bone
the grunting, squee of rooting pigs alone

the missing of the point that TRUTH is making
the wallowing in anything that soothes
retreat into the silly absurd argue
and justice once again goes barefoot begging…”

Hillary Clinton: American Democracy Is in Crisis – The Atlantic

Sorry ttaf supporter:  I now actually agree with your own claim to being “a deplorable”…you are that.

For real.

Or just a “cow of Vashon” (Biblical reference there), at ease in Zion.

“…Trump may be uniquely hostile to the rule of law, ethics in public service, and a free press. But the assault on our democracy didn’t start with his election. He is as much a symptom as a cause of what ails us.

“Think of our body politic like a human body, with our constitutional checks and balances, democratic norms and institutions, and well-informed citizenry all acting as an immune system protecting us from the disease of authoritarianism.

“Over many years, our defenses were worn down by a small group of right-wing billionaires—people like the Mercer family and Charles and David Koch—who spent a lot of time and money building an alternative reality where science is denied, lies masquerade as truth, and paranoia flourishes.

“By undermining the common factual framework that allows a free people to deliberate together and make the important decisions of self-governance, they opened the way for the infection of Russian propaganda and Trumpian lies to take hold.

“They’ve used their money and influence to capture our political system, impose a right-wing agenda, and disenfranchise millions of Americans…”

Justice Is Coming For You…

…and it will activate according to the operation of mercy as released and determined by your will and your choices…

ttaf supporter, you who tried to tell me it was “God’s Will” for him to be elected, you who whined and cried because your days were being interrupted and your were not being given the chance to just indulge your desires at the expense of the stranger and alien in your land…

You who told me that ttaf would gather godly people around him…well you were wrong.

Are you paying attention to what is happening with Paul Manafort?  I already KNOW the answer is no, because you do not pay attention to anything but Fox News.

 

It is sad to watch your incisive and aware mind awake be dulled by the “bon-bons” of propaganda and ideology.

 

There is still a chance for you, ttaf supporter.  I know from experience that admitting you are wrong, after the difficulty of doing it, is the most clean and expiating experience, poising one to at last be found among the sheep rather than the goats.

 

 

ttaf colors the American flag wrong during visit to Ohio children’s hospital

Hey ttaf supporter:

This is your choice for President, the monster who hides behind the flag to harass professional athletes who are protesting to call attention to the racism in our country, repeatedly accusing them of disrespecting the flag…

and he doesn’t even know how to color it!

It IS interesting that the Russian flag is white, red and blue however…

The only thing that disgusts me more than this unfathomable horror of a human is your fawning sycophancy for him.
