For dVerse Poetics: Sunday 8/28/2011 Prompt: Third Eye Open: Good and Evil
August 29, 2011
The Aura of Good and Evil

Can you feel what I feel,
the aura of good or evil ?
.
Can you feel confident
of the love of the good in people?
Knowing deep down you can trust
your first born or aging parent with them?
.
Can you trust that feeling
of terror or fear in the room and in your heart
leading to the man
your friend is so in love with and plans to marry ?
.
The gift of feeling another’s aura
is an awesome responsibility.
Knowing when to trust your gut,
when to act, or not is another.
.
When you are right on the gift of love,
it is hard not to gloat and pat yourself on the back.
The same with evil…
“I told you so” on the bitten tongue,
can it stay there for ever and ever ?
.
Can you accept when you are wrong,
and spoke too soon,
or when you were right and didn’t speak
and disaster struck ?
.

Can you feel what I feel,
the aura of good or evil ?
.
