โ€œBEDTIME PRAYER!โ€ a.k.a.: โ€œBeddie-Bye-Bye-Time Need NOT Include Unfinished Phone Calls!โ€ ๐Ÿ™‚ Wednesday: Karaoke Day + Poetry Gathering Today – The Last Day of February 28, 2018, for consideration!

A phoneโ€™s not (necessarily) loving – and a phoneโ€™s not (necessarily) kind!

WHEN – a phone doth seek to โ€œbind,โ€

When a phone controls our sleep pat-terns,

Then, a phone it only hurts and burns,

A case in point (quite sad, I think):

When

Before-bed,

A call did blink!

We spoke a while, BUT,

IT WAS TIME, TO GO TO BED AND END THE RHYME,

Of a fine day – of ac – ti – vity,

This time is good for โ€œprep,โ€ you see,

A topic touched upon (before), I think,

BEFORE GOOD REST, PREPARE TO SINK,

Into a blessed slumber here,

In our bed, with my dear!

I like to wash and rinse and say,

A few kind words, to end the day,

To think about the day to come,

BUT NOT to worry – or sip the rum!

Relax the body, relax the mind,

Prepare to dream and do be kind,

To self and others – who shared the day,

This, I think, is how to pray!

โ€œ30 DAYS!โ€ Wodenโ€™s Day = The last of February, 28, 2018 โ€ฆ

A lengthy hospital visit can be taxing, this I say,

Body lax, stress in mind – Whereโ€™s a happy day?

Itโ€™s been said that (pause)

A-fine-routine-does-let-the-body-thrive!

And, when weโ€™re locked inside a room, itโ€™s hard for us to โ€œstrive,โ€

And keep the body happy, with exercise and sun!

Sometimes! Appearance-suffers,

โ€˜Cause weโ€™re laying (at lot) on our bum!* ๐Ÿ™‚

So, when our โ€œdischarge papers,โ€

Arrive-on-the-bedside-table,

Perhaps here is some quaint advice, to follow IF weโ€™re able:

(1) Itโ€™s been said that 30 DAYS can get us back in action! Just 30-days of-a-little-thing-can-give-us-lots-of-โ€traction;โ€

(2) To get โ€œin shape,โ€ just pick a practice, like goinโ€™ โ€˜round the block! AND DO IT (pause) EVEN IF (pause) itโ€™s pretty hard to walk – Because it strengths bod and mind, to know that youโ€™ve a will – AND, Iโ€™ll wager, when youโ€™re done, thereโ€™ll be a little thrill;

(3) Now, sit down with your body (pause) as a trusted friend, and say: โ€œYou know?! Iโ€™m sorry! BUT-the-hospital-stay-did-end! AND – NOW – we-get-to-re-activate, although it may be hard, but we can do it, you and me, and youโ€™re my precious โ€˜pard!โ€™ And we can move with dance and song, and Iโ€™ll massage you new, With finest oils of lavender** – and weโ€™ll get some-nice sleep too! And-a-happy-body, with a happy mind, is what weโ€™re shooting for! But EASY DOES IT, my good friend, to resurrect our โ€˜core!โ€™ โ€œ

(4) And we wonโ€™t do no diet, at least not one severe. Weโ€™ll eat and drink real simple – might even have a beer!*** but this, I promise, my dear friend, to give you some fine fuel, so we can do our โ€œ30 days,โ€ and do them real cool; and

(5) Weโ€™ll-get-to-bed-at-a-decent-hour and not use (the) phone SO MUCH (pause) that it disrupts the day (pause) and becomes a silly crutch! This will help โ€œthe toneโ€ (pause) of life and love, I say!

So, this advice, I give to all, to recoup from a stay,

At your favorite hospital! You-can-always-find-a-way,

But, EASY DOES IT

Is ALWAYS GOOD!

I love YOU!

Your friend,

โ€œJay!โ€ ๐Ÿ™‚

Nonsensical “Opinion” Not required in a Court Of Law๐Ÿ˜‚

โ€œANOTHER BAD OPINION!โ€ Toosday – February 27th.

Women arenโ€™t-โ€educa(t)able,โ€ MEN SELDOM ARE,

(You) Can fill MOST with info – but-that-wonโ€™t-take-you-t00-far –

Thereโ€™s just EDUCATION, which, rightfully done –

Just-teaches: WEโ€™RE-(ALL)-A-MESS! Thatโ€™s (all) (right), Honey Bun!

Now – we-ALL-is-a-mess and some might (it) DECLARE:

But REAL Education hits,

Hits – way down โ€œthere!โ€

A truly enlightened (big olโ€™ L. O. L.) and sensible guy,

KNOWS HEโ€™S A MESS!

Does not have to try,

He IS a mess, and he knows thatโ€™s the case,

But most folks, my honey – wonโ€™t eveยฎn embrace!*

fin. <3

Postlude! Now, sinfulness – THAT is NOT being a mess; Sin is a concept – embraced by Rud. Hess! Sin is a critical, arguing snake! Being a mess? (Only) NATURAL(e) – (for) goodnessโ€™ sake! ๐Ÿ™‚

Kindness

Sweetgrass – a kindness medicine… has a sweet gentle aroma when we light it… 21 strands to make a braid

the first 7 strands represent those 7 generations behind us… our parents, grandparents… 7 generations behind us.. who we are and what we are is because of them.. theyโ€™ve brushed and made the trails we have been walking up till now… the old people tell us that it takes longer for us to heal today and the reason is because the old trails our ancestors used to use to find us have been destroyed… theyโ€™ve build dams which have destroyed the old trails… theyโ€™ve build towns and cities where the old trails used to be… so now our ancestors are having a harder time trying to find us to help us heal…
the next seven represent the 7 sacred teachings… love, respect, honesty, courage, wisdom, truth, and humility… the old people tell us how simple, powerful and beautiful the teachings are… love- a very simple teaching… respect- a powerful teaching… humility- a beautiful teaching… when we truly understand the teaching of humility… that I am not any better then anyone else and you are not any better then me… that at the end of the day we are all simply human beings… this is what makes this teaching powerful and beautiful… the only thing wrong with the teachings is that we donโ€™t walk them everyday… love is only a 4 letter word… itโ€™s when we walk that love, when we show it, when we live it… thatโ€™s what makes these teachings powerful and beautiful… one other thing we are reminded is that how can we love someone else if we donโ€™t First love ourself… how can we respect another if we donโ€™t First respect ourself… they tell us that the teachings need to first start from within ourself…
the last 7 strands… those 7 generation in front of us… our children, grandchildren… those children yet to be born… why are they important… everything we do to Mother Earth will one day affect them… right now the earth gives us everything and anything we can possibly want to have the life we have… but if we donโ€™t look after her, whatโ€™s going to be left when itโ€™s their turn… the circle thatโ€™s around me today, is that the same circle I want to pass on to them… especially if my circle involves alcohol abuse, drug abuse, family violence, lying, stealing or cheating… sometime itโ€™s up to us to break the cycle… and hopefully replace it with something better …
we put those 3 braids together… they represent yesterday, today and tomorrow… mind, body and spirit…. man, woman and child… man, woman and Creator ….
When my son was born I made him a promise that we wouldnโ€™t cut his hair till he was 7… we cut it 8 years ago, heโ€™s 15 today… but when he was 4 years old he already knew this teaching… because every morning as Iโ€™d get him ready for daycare, Iโ€™d braid his hair… Iโ€™d ask him… Misko what does your braid represent … sweetgrass heโ€™d say… what does sweetgrass represent my boy Iโ€™d ask… kindness heโ€™d say… and what does each of your braids represent my boy… my mind, my body and my spirit was his reply… ok what are you going to do at daycare today my boy Iโ€™d ask… dad!!!! Iโ€™m going to be kind to my mind, my body and my spirit heโ€™d say… awesome my boy!!! Whatโ€™s going to happen if you do that today my boy Iโ€™d ask… heโ€™d say… dad! Iโ€™m going to be STRONG !!!!
You see thatโ€™s the second teaching that comes with this medicine… itโ€™s through our kindness that we are most strong… anybody can raise their fist at anyone else… anyone can use their words to hurt or put someone down… but when we have someone in our face trying to hurt us with their actions or words… and to still love, respect and show that person kindness… that takes a lot of strength !!!! โค๏ธ

And we boycotted everything – ALL governments – with glee,

โ€œRE: BEING OVERTAXED – SO THERE – TO THE GOVERNMENTS!โ€ Tuesday, February 27, 2018.

The governments have overtaxed us – that is what theyโ€™ve done!

And so to (de)spite them, weโ€™ll have a lot of fun!

I fell in love with you – and you, ya, you fell in love with me,

And we boycotted everything – ALL governments – with glee,

We both climbed into bed, all right, and would not eat or drink,

We just stayed,

EMBRACED,

And did just what you think!

The government investigators found us in embrace,

SKELETONS, with hanging flesh! – and fluids on/in our face!

โ€œSuch sad and dismal stuff we see,โ€ the F. B. I. did say,

But we were laughing,

On some planet –

Every bloody day!

“Don’t Touch Me There

โ€œTHEN I MET YOU!!โ€ 02/27/18 Tue.

I used to be a โ€œNORMALโ€ guy –

Did โ€œnormalโ€ things –

Ate โ€œnormal pie!

Occasionally, Iโ€™d even lie!

โ€ฆ

I left my cell phone at the house [ ]

I was so Free! Without a spouse!

I had no โ€œwomanโ€ for-to hound,

Me into – taking-(my)-mobile-โ€™round!

I had my – dignity – I WAS NO PAWN,

You know, I really, (really) was JUST GONE!

I ate and drank – what I derned please,

And learned about โ€œthe birds & bees,โ€

From โ€œnormalโ€ place(s) – like the bars,

And the-backish-seats-of-many-a-cars,

NOW, thru horrid eyes, I watch-myself-Do-things-all-right,

Yes, now Iโ€™ll take the phone along – youโ€™ll call both day and night,

And, I, with slobber in my mouth – And love lights in my eyes –

WILL ANSWER CELL PHONE HAPPILY!

And eat โ€œabnormalโ€ pies!
