Note To All The Spirits In Prison (poetry)


Note To All The Spirits In Prison


Be here
don't fear…
do right
without fright…
day comes
after night.



John 9:4 King James Version (KJV)

4I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Today: (poetry)





It was raining at daybreak and rained until bedtime.
It was a rain of many moods;
but it was one rain
that fell straight down
beating the ground like a manic drummer
sometimes capriciously careening sideways
and turning to hail… before
pausing and drumming again
until the sky briefly emptied
leaving a double rainbow.

I dashed out to spread sunflower seed on the ground
and rushed back inside
before the drumming resumed
and the doves arrived…
I knew they were coming,
they come rain and shine.

Yemen Has Found Itself On The Wrong End Of Foreign Policy: an American politician speaks out



I made this poster quite a while ago after hearing the report quoted  from the U.N. about the karma being generated by the U.S. in Yemen. 

I was pleased to find that Progressive politicians like Senator Bernie Sanders and Journalists like Jeff Waldorf have come to similar conclusions about killing off these people. We the PEOPLE are speaking when we say "No More".

So I don't feel un-American for speaking out against this U.S. foreign policy that starves children to death in order for the economy to prosper. In contrast pointing out  the crimes of politicians is completely 'patriotic'. In the following highlighted texts is what Jesus said he would feel like if this shit happened. It's in the Bible, I'm not making it up. According to the Bible Jesus hates this shit and the U.S. claims to be a Christian nation. 
Go figure.

The Days Are Dark (poetry)



The Days Are Dark
poetry by David H. Roche
Highlighted links in the poem are to information implied in the poem

The days are dark,
the hour late,
it fornicates... proposing laws
to rule the state.

Dark is the portent
of humanities fate,
lies and truth
do not equate,
peace and love
they cannot make,
the days ahead
are cold with hate.

The future bleak,
the hour late,
as legislators obfuscate,
while making laws
directing the fate
of all in service 
to the state....

a premise on which to meditate.

a few minutes at night with the moon, the sky, the clouds and the wind (video)

It was dark, not very cold and while looking out the window I spied the moon and the clouds involved in a relationship with the wind.

So I went out with my camera and tripod. I selected a couple screenshots (the photos included) from the results and you can see what the camera saw.

I was happy with the way the video came out.

Endless War As A Way Of Life




I came across this news report on RT news after making the image above.  It's difficult to project a positive outcome from societies present trajectory.  Peace and well being are not the result of wars and all our laws cannot bring about the love for our fellowman which will bring about peace.  Unfortunately what we do have is a multitude of laws and wars and a paupers pouch of peace and love. If a good portion of us don't wise up soon this earth is not going to be worth living on. Then what are we going to do? Have you thought about what is being done right before our eyes? Can you come up with a good reason to do this to our children and the future?





Wall Street can come up with a reason, that reason is named 'profit'. It's not a good reason but it's the only reason that has been put forth that passes the 'bullshit' test. But that is not the story you're told.

You were told of throwing babies on the floor
WMD's and
terrorists at your door
in order to sell the tools
to wage
an endless war.


A reasonable approach to this problem would include the recognition that 17 years of war have not brought peace and that continuing the wars we've started will not bring peace and that we must stop fighting these unjust and undeclared wars for profit. Why haven't the war-makers given a thought to making a living from peace rather than war? We might want to consider the idea of giving peace a chance.
