yet again today
several articles came into my view,
and then a conversation or two –
telling me to by-pass, beat, and rise above
my reptilian brain
for the sake of my spiritual development,
and my personal self actualization.
out of doors i fly,
if only to get away from those more learned than i.
i like reptiles. and the parts of my brain i share with them,
and also share, by the way,
with all those feathered, finned, scaled and skinned.
without the stem of my brain,
what would hold my brain flower above?
Beloved Ancient One who is ever new,
thank you for the small anole with the longest tail,
pointing me upwards,
reminding me, that we, and all our parts, are a part of YOU.
