somewhere inside

somewhere inside the

opinions; educated

and shockingly not

 

the reins hunger so

for fingers that are way too

busy pointing to

 

stop breathe assess see

a game wildly out of place

sits onstage laughing

Blissbait Art 'spamming'

Hey Beautiful People! This weekend I was bopping around the innards of my blog trying to figure out some techno stuff and noticed my spam folder could use emptying. Much to my surprise the only things it contained were very sweet comments from a dear blogging friend and a wonderful message from a lovely, close family friend! Ack! I think perhaps the spamming mechanism may be a bit wonky with all that’s going on in the world and is hoarding. 🤣 At any rate: Check Your Spam! There may be wonderful surprises in there for You! And my apologies to sweet Gabriela at Short Prose and lovely Cindy Q for my oblivion! Shocking, I know! 😅 Hugs to All and stay safe!

Happy Saturday, Beautiful People All! I posted this a few years ago but thought it might be a fun distraction about now. Below You’ll find a little film of me reading (with text and illustrations) my very short, seriously silly story ‘Ode to Pipper Popper’.

“Not a fable. No moral here. Simply a bystander’s tale of a very old, outwardly odd and exceedingly cranky so and so who winds up on a journey he never bargained for!”

our prayers

our prayers by blissbait art

whoever we are, wherever we are, whatever our life may hold:

they are in our every breath, our shoes, wrapped tight in our pillows

draped all about our dinner plates, in the whispers of the trees

and the wonderfully incessant hum of the crickets

in the mad frenzy of a firefly “I’m brightest!” competition

a traffic jam and the graceful rising of the moon

they run wildly out of our faucets dancing through the flow like children aching to play

and are woven into every moment we sit silent

no matter what we’re hearing they wrap themselves around every word

we cry, we laugh, we ignore, we ponder, we pray, we ache, we forget, we help, we play, we worry, we allow ourselves to stop and just Be….

they are the ground that supports us while our story unfolds

our every single moment, action, experience

are permeated with and wrapped a million-fold in most loving prayers from

our beautiful world-family

and ever-present Absolute

LOVE

itself

ultimate caretaker

caretaker

when i wander deep into my cave of what ifs, projections and fear

inevitably Love wakes me up with a trail of breadcrumbs woven from

mindblowingly plentiful gifts

such as

flowers, butterflies, sunshine, wind, the moon, my breathe and

your

lovely

smile

the numbers

wave by/© Blissbait Artthe numbers

nowadays, to my ears, the news casters sounds like adults in Charlie Brown’s world:

wah wah wah, wah wah, wah wah wah

my brain jumps off the couch and although i see their mouths moving

 my heart aches deeply and hums fragmented songs with its fingers in my ears

there is a vast realm of my psyche that can only wait

just breathe, send out love and wait

but the numbers………they speak loud and clear

and register on every level

•   •   •   •   •   •   •

Sending out prayers and Love to All of You who are in the thick of this. I am so sorry for all You are going through and all of Your losses….there simply aren’t adequate words. Please know You are held in the world’s heart and so much Love surrounds You even if it doesn’t feel like it right now.
