Happy (Milestone) Birthday Heartpoet


"Thinking Out Loud"
When your legs don't work like they used to before
And I can't sweep you off of your feet
Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

And, darling, I will be loving you 'til we're 70
And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23
And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe just the touch of a hand
Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day
And I just wanna tell you I am

So honey now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are

When my hair's all but gone and my memory fades
And the crowds don't remember my name
When my hands don't play the strings the same way
I know you will still love me the same

'Cause honey your soul could never grow old, it's evergreen
And, baby, your smile's forever in my mind and memory
I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
Maybe it's all part of a plan
Well, I'll just keep on making the same mistakes
Hoping that you'll understand

But, baby, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Place your head on my beating heart
Thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are

So, baby, now
Take me into your loving arms
Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
Oh, darling, place your head on my beating heart
I'm thinking out loud
That maybe we found love right where we are
Oh, baby, we found love right where we are
And we found love right where we are.

They tried to bury us...



The deeper they buried us...the stronger we grew.

Cyclone Marcia



Marcia is looking like the real deal. She's intensifying...and quickly.
She is currently being classified as a category 2 cyclone.

"Wild weather to to hit Queensland and Northern Territory as Cyclone Marcia and Cyclone Lam approach" screams the news. Uggggg.

Queensland (my home State) is bracing for its worst weather event in two years Cyclone Marcia approaching, bringing with it the threat of wind and rainfall reminiscent of those that brought devastation in the 2011 floods, and again in 2012. Beaches are closed. There's talk of 600mm of rain expected to fall in coming days along with high winds and flash flooding. Cyclone Marcia is expected to cross the Queensland coast on Friday morning.

My lil family reside in Brisbane, an idyllic location at the lower end of a leafy green cul-de-sac with a creek bordering 2 sides. However when it rains heavily/constantly (like it surely will) we flood. We live in a high set home. The top level remains high and dry, the bottom level not so. Downstairs has been sand bagged (Heartpoet picked up pre-filled bags from our local SES Tuesday in anticipation). I am so glad he had the foresight to do so as there would be a long line up for sand bags today I imagine. It's now a matter of battening down the hatches. There is a real eerie feel in the air today. Like the shit is about to hit the fan. The calm before the storm. Drought or flood with no in-between for us Queenslanders *sigh*....


*Update: Since posting Marcia has been upgraded to Category 3.

*Further update: Marcia has now been upgraded to Category 4. Look after yourselves Queenslanders!

SEVERE TROPICAL CYCLONE MARCIA LIKELY TO CROSS THE CENTRAL COASTLINE AS A CATEGORY 5 SYSTEM

Shapes




On the edge of the world, away from the cities and country towns, far removed from the centres and fringes of the not so civilized, a gentle breeze waved across the earth. To the far horizon not a single form of life stirred. Indeed, except for the slight movement of the disturbed air, you could be forgiven for assuming another plane of existence was at play. Planets come and planets go, you would think, and matter moves from one to another. Yet despite the sense of logic, this was no easy dilemma.

Beneath the earth, at the very edge of the world, something was at play. Heat and pressure, peace and war. If only the cycles of day and night were as clear with intent as the forces that rumbled beneath the dandelions.

More than two days’ ride away, much further by foot, Macy and Angelo were at play. Their feathered bed was alive with the act of love and as they panted and thrust to the moon above, the centre of their world exploded.

History would report the events of the next four days and nights with reverence and a sense of unfamiliar awe. How could it be that the planet’s continuing spin across the universe depended on such an unlikely couple at such a critical time in such an ordinary place?

At the edge of the world, shapes are indiscernible. Tell me, when you look, what is it that you see?

Spinning




Weather it rains or whether we laugh
a twist on a simple thought
crosses to bear and crosses to fill
sometimes a win with a nought
love to a hate and hate to a love
is never a way to a heart
give it a go and see where you end
you’ll finish right back at the start

and tenderest touch is never too much

never too tough will be
the pressing of flesh a will to impress
a kiss and a hand on a knee

move for a move from left to the right
and right to the left with a slide
whispers and sighs the magic of life
and the closed is flung to the wide
far out to the stars to the heavens so far
past comets and planets of blue
further and further through far outer space
to a world that’s spinning for you

so wonder with this of the turns and the dance
of the moves that come with a start
give it a go and see you where you end
it might be a way to a heart…
