Finding Equity

mihir_kelkar

Being Black is not synonymous to anger

Being Black is not synonymous to danger

 

Being Black is not synonymous to poverty

Being Black is not synonymous to tragedy

 

Being Black is common with perseverance

Being Black is common with cultural adherence

 

Being Black is common with ten thousand languages

Being Black is common with twenty thousand ethnicities

 

The color Black absorbs all

The color Black doesn’t fade at all

 

The color Black dominants the landscape

The color Black penetrates the sunrays

 

Black is when you are suffer-free

Totally operating in autonomy

Creating new waves in a laboratory

Pixelating new additions on life’s movie screen

Cosmos-inspired textile mosaics reign supreme

 

Eyes’ vision 8th dimension that affects impact

Lives of truth genuinely smile back

Rites of passage prepares responses of tact

Deep touches of moans felt along spine, back

Incomparable is the definition of Black

The new book has ALMOST arrived!

Greetings Dedicated Poetry Lovers,

As you have read in the title, the second book is almost available for homes across the globe. The Cells of the Tissue That Should Feel will be the second published book of E as Poetlove Water/Etaniel Ben Yehuda/me (scheduled for Fall 2016 release).  I believe this book is the extroverted twin of The Chronicles of Air, Water and the Source.  In the first book, The Chronicles, I encouraged readers through personal experience to seek the answers to life on inside of self.  Although this was not a popular concept in the 1990’s/early 2000’s, I hold steadfast to the idea of inner development for true empowerment.  I can give thousands of testimonies of the effectiveness of knowing self and walking in your divine power!

Now…that we have connected with self, it’s time to MAKE SOME NOISE! The Cells is not for the faint of heart or soul.  This life on Earth requires great amounts of strength, focus, determination and certainty in purpose.  Stay tuned as I provide teasers as poems over the upcoming weeks, leading to the publishing debut.  As always, I really appreciate the wonderful support that my artistic/soul expressions have garnered.  Fulljoy life!

The Funeral of Etaniel

Festive

Celebrating all he IS

Orange Blue Black

Soca music blaring

Afro-House compelling

Yes…letting the tears flow

But…mix in the cartwheels

Coupé Décalé, smiles and pleasantries

 

For the spirit has retired

Soul endured the fire

Because fires don’t consume dragons

Delectable brown body laid to rest

Weary eyes of trials by fire

Positively endless

Negatively temporal

Balance meets the area of grey

Is it for me or you?

Sharing space on planet Earth teaches us interdependence and appreciation of our surroundings.  The beautiful thing about this experience is that the supplies of Mother Gaia (Earth) are MORE than sufficient.  No one should lack anything!  But, we have beings that dissociate their intentions and health of ego from the larger group/population.  This develops into a terrible thing called selfishness.

Selfishness can manifest on a variety of levels.  The perpetrator may or may not be fully aware in a given moment.  But, it is best to develop a significant degree of self-awareness.  It will broaden perspectives.

First, let’s explore the passing of a loved one.  If it is a parent, sibling or child, then it could be especially hard to accept the physical disconnect.  For the most part, that relative have been around since your inception.  Now, you must get used to not seeing-touching-feeling-hearing-smelling the decedent.  I remember when my mother’s health was declining.  I reached a realization that I/the family MUST support her in whichever decision that she makes about HER life.  She was in constant pain and I know it was wearing on her.  She transitioned in April 2013.  But, the “release” was congruent with the intuitive message that she was ready to transition in February 2013.  Most deathly ill persons “stick around” for various reasons.  It could be to make amends with a broken relationship, to reduce the burden on family/friends of the burial process or the absorption of emotions that flow from the visitor(s) to the ill person.  I would like to say this…it is always best that we allow a person’s transition to be peaceful and clear.  No one should ever feel guilty about leaving loved ones.

Next, let us look at romantic relationship.  This should compel many to leave comments. It is a popular yet despised topic to explore.  In relationships, the healthiest approach is to establish your thoughts on the solid possibility of personal development.  Energy does not lie.  If you are sensing/feeling a strong attraction to someone, then it is worth exploring. Usually, it means that the two of you are meant to have an exchange for the enrichment of both parties.   It could be very momentary or it could be for fifty years or any time frame in between.  The two parties involved are the determinants.  Clarity, honesty, allowance for trust and room for mistakes will ensure a healthy bond.  Of course, it would be easier for me to focus on all of the ways that negativity manifests in relationships.  “Not today!” says E as Poetlove Water.  Humanity is broken and imbalanced.  Only solutions should be offered, at this point in time.  Word to the Wise and Unwise:  No one owns anyone or is exclusively subjected to the life of another.  Therefore, selfishness only stifles, agitate and interrupt a beautiful flow of moments.

Here is another thing…the naming of a child.  Growing up, I always found it repulsive when a parent names a child after one’s self.  I honestly dig not see the logic in this.  As I became an adult thinker, it started to reveal upon me why I had disdain about namesake designation.  I’ve come to the conclusion that the parent is intruding upon the autonomy and uniqueness of their offspring.  In most cases, these parents seem to place extremely high demands on the child to become what they parent wants out of life.  Parents, let’s remember that we are uniquely created and have our exclusive missions on planet Earth. Stifling a person’s true purpose in life can lead to depression, uncertainty, weakness, passivity and an UNFULFILLED mission.  Yes, we love out children.  Love is freedom and unconditional support, among other things.  I would suggest the old tried-and-true method of consulting with wise Elders or spiritual meditation to know for certain the child’s true name.  In many cultures, names carry power and high purpose.

Lastly, let’s talk politics and religion.  Actually, I won’t do much on the two topics because people overly sensitive and too passionate.  I will say this…whenever engaging in an exchange/dialogue concerning politics or religion, please say your piece and allow others to say their piece.  Listen, listen, listen.  Just don’t hear them…listen!  Your perspective can be broaden.  Although you may not agree, it doesn’t hurt to understand the other person’s viewpoint.  At the end of the day, more people will enjoy engaging in conversation about politics and/or religion.  Why?  You listen and respect other people’s position in life.  That takes a lot of SELFLESSNESS!  Cheers

 

 

“I Think I am Untitled”

As a writer and human being, I am always seeking the challenge of challenging myself.  A writer’s group I have recently joined (Brooklyn, NY) provides a platform to be challenged and criticized.  It ensures that there is no allowance for a “comfort zone” when creating art that remonstrances status quo and social ills.  The result is below:

I Think I am Untitled

Up the stairs

How many stairs

How many stairs?

Lead to how many flights?

 

Preparation of the legs

Reaching new height

Many stares

Upon many stairs

 

Long strides

Produces extra sounds

Creaks that peak

Around the surroundings

 

Causation of building

Muscle mass

Strong lungs

So….how many stairs?

stairs

Eyes still staring

Seeking out flatlands

To rest joints

At the flex points

 

Views of dust

Slight debris

Welcomed to the nose

Invasion of some sorts

 

In flight

Upon a few more flights

Then I’ll reach

A much needed break

 

Creaks are peaking

Hope increasing

Tongue is panting

Patience is thinning

 

Okay now, okay now

This is it

The flatlands are here!

The extra sound as {{{ THUMP }}}

After the Meditation Was Answered

As the stars align
Children of Dark Matter rise
With full support
The Brightest Star
Nourishing our cells
Peace and Power possess
Our Beings
That holds light
The Awakening Massive
Breaking down walls
Created by monsters
That thrive of desperation
The human soul thrives better
