    You Think
    About all the Important Things.

    Tangible Things
    That can be Touched

    Concrete Substance
    That can be Felt and Held

    Physical Reality of Surrounding Worlds
    Come into Hand
    Unfold.

    And as Its Done
    The Treasures of Love
    Hold it all

    So Rise
    To All Occasions

    Climb
    All Beaten Paths

    Achieving Access
    Exploring

    Never forgetting the Past
    Engaging with passion the Future

    Expanding Knowledge
    In Wrap

    Reflect on what Is Chosen
    Exploring what is Added by Chance.

    When asked to Explain.

    Just being
    Brings about these Things and Truth

    This was heavy, Hodee!


    Sadly, we all don't think and reflect; but for those who do, they're "being" is not fruitless.

    So'ja made some post with Alexandra
    They were talking about reflection.

    When you talk or write to someone.
    And respond to them on line or face to face in conversation.
    You get to respond to what was shared and this is reflecting.
    They answer your reply on line and this is reflecting back.

    The exchange outcome could take on a flow all its own.

    There are fruitless exchanges, but from them you get a understanding
    that the reflecting or the exchange of flow, face to face or online reflects that lack.

    So would that mean no conversation or reply back is fruitless.. maybe NOT!??

    Do I make any sense.. yard work is messing with me today. Gotta go rack some leaves and plant some grass. Rest up for "KARAOKE" tonight..

    Doo.., Re, Me , Fa, So, La, Te, Doo....:terrific:

    Thanks Brother

    I do care about others and what they have to share.

    I actually take pride in how I am genuinely interested in others.

    Thank You Sister cherryblossom

    No reply or response in either exchange especially when directly spoken to... or written to... is an answer back

    No answer can be an answer

    You don't quite understand what the writer is trying to convey
    The subject is information to you only, no response needed, or something is causing the lack of response.. is the thread too lengthy?

    LOL! Hodee, you are a diplomat, for sure!

    And I hope my response is a "reflection" of yours in meaning and intent as well. :toast:

    When we are just being, we like folks to understand...to get just where we are and what we mean. Sometimes they do, other times not. Much to relect upon here Brother Hodee.

    You said a mouthful poet, and sometimes I really do wish that i could, just be.
    you know that just take a shower, cut off the phone, drink a glass of wine, just be. That kind of just be when I look at someone and they FEEL me, without me speaking kinda just be, in the back yard in a hammock, after a long day kinda just be. All the while knowing that there's so much to take and be given from just being. I enjoyed your write, when it makes me reflect like that it really means something from one poet to the next. I tried to respond to your forum to tell you thank you for your kind thoughts and encouraging words, but for some reason I couldn't, the page wouldn't let me. So I'm telling you now, Thanks for being so darn thoughtful :)
