'Party'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Party at the center of the universe,
in the heart of the womb,
dance as you breath,
smile as you watch,
mean what you say and say what you mean -
it means nothing but a hand shake,
a pat on the back, a cosmic snack,
a hug on a rug, from a cosmic bug ...

Party in the center of the universe,
in the lungs of the temporal paradox,
dance as you breath,
smile as you participate,
it means everything when you are the love gate -
both the entrance and the exit of creation,
a genius feeling menace, a maraca dreaming music,
a goat in a boat, on a cosmic float ...

Party at the center of the universe,
nothing remains the same, there is no time
for escapades, charades or masquerades.
The essence of Life believing in the living,
the senses of Life investing in gathering sensations -
it means everything and nothing to be alive,
to be the taker of all, all that love has to give,
a kiss to create bliss on the universal shopping list."
~ K. L. Atkinson

'Obstacles'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Now it is quite clear to me that there are no solid spheres in the heavens ... only in the imagination ...That the machine of heaven is not a hard and impervious body full of various real spheres, as up to now has been believed by most people. It will be proved that it extends everywhere, most fluid and simple, and nowhere presents obstacles as was formerly held, the circuits of the Planets being wholly free and without the labour and whirling round of any real spheres at all ...”
~ Tycho Brahe 1546-1601 (Denmark)

'Twittersphere'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"The wind is blowing, adore the wind ... Dear youths, I warn you cherish peace divine, and in your hearts lay deep these words of mine. Eat not the heart... Practice justice in word and deed, and do not get in the habit of acting thoughtlessly about anything. There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres."
~ Pythagoras of Samos Πυθαγόρας 582-496 BC (Greece)

'Space, Wind'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
“Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are."

'Little Things Count'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Look deep into colour
and colour will reflect back to you,
how it constantly creates more colour -
our world is a composition of colour,
colour composing our world
through constantly adding more new colours,
by consistently creating more colours."

'Invisibly Soft'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
“To hear never-heard sounds,
To see never-seen colors and shapes,
To try to understand the imperceptible
Power pervading the world;
To fly and find pure ethereal substances
That are not of matter
But of that invisible soul pervading reality.
To hear another soul and to whisper to another soul;
To be a lantern in the darkness
Or an umbrella in a stormy day;
To feel much more than know.
To be the eyes of an eagle, slope of a mountain;
To be a wave understanding the influence of the moon;
To be a tree and read the memory of the leaves;
To be an insignificant pedestrian on the streets
Of crazy cities watching, watching, and watching.
To be a smile on the face of a woman
And shine in her memory
As a moment saved without planning.”
~ Dejan Stojanovic 1959- (Autonomous District of Kosovo and Metohija)(Serbia)

'Communion'
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"I think your mythology would call them fallen angels. War and hate are their business, and one of their chief weapons is un-Naming - making people not know who they are. If someone knows who he is, really knows, then he doesn't need to hate ... There are still stars which move in ordered and beautiful rhythm. There are still people in this world who keep promises ... That’s enough to keep my heart optimistic, no matter how pessimistic my mind. And you and I have good enough minds to know how very limited and finite they really are. The naked intellect is an extraordinarily inaccurate instrument ... We don’t have to know everything at once. We just do one thing at a time, as it is given us to do.”
~ Madeleine L'Engle 1918-2007 (NYC)
Quote from her book, "A Wind in the Door"

to destroy as well as create.
This fire is to help and heal."

'Self Not Static, Look Deep Inside"
by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"A self is not something static,
tied up in a pretty parcel
and handed to the child,
finished and complete.
A self is always becoming.

Life, with its rules,
its obligations, and its freedoms,
is like a sonnet: You're given the form,
but you have to write the sonnet yourself.

Believing takes practice.
We can't take any credit for our talents.
It's how we use them that counts.

When we were children,
we used to think that when we were grown-up
we would no longer be vulnerable.
But to grow up is to accept vulnerability...
To be alive is to be vulnerable.

The great thing about getting older
is that you don't lose
all the other ages you've been.

Our truest response
to the irrationality of the world
is to paint or sing or write,
for only in such response
do we find truth."
~ Madeleine L'Engle 1918-2007 (NYC)
