Poetry... it’s here, probably to stay...

Pic from ~ ~

A baby zedonk stands next to her mother Monday at the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve in Lumpkin County. The zebra, donkey mix was born Thursday.

Late night yowls, my gliding and slinky-siding KitKats... oh, a rough draining day for the Kougaress... *not* bad as in things going wrong... thank you to the Divine... but, somehow, the heat and humidity got moi when she had to do her stock-up shopping... and she was down for the ‘nap’ count a couple of hours after returning.

Poetry... it’s here, probably to stay... okay, purrs, poetry has been around for Age upon Age... this Big Cat contends, this form of creative expression is simply and complexly a matter of the soul, of the spirit... of being the unique divine creations we are as human beings... our emotions, our experiences, our realizations... to put it in another way... poetry is ‘us’ and we are poetry... think of the phrase ‘poetry in motion’ ... in a deeply profound way... we are all poetry in motion and we ‘motion’ poetry by penning it... bringing those words to life on the page...

In this wayward ‘coming apart’ day and age, we need poetry as never before. It is part of the Soul Rising that is taking place inside all of us, the Soul Rising that is tsunami-sweeping across our globe in this time of Awakening, of knowing the depths of our true natures.

Poetry is our friend, our companion during this journey... we are Poetry Rising.

Sorta Rant ~

Oh, and more good news... snark, meow, snark... yep, Googlie is ramping up to spy-track *everyone* in real time, according to a Wired mag article... via cell phone, searches on the World Wide Wiretap, purchases using credit cards, bank cards, face recognition software... oh, and by reading your license plate... of course, if you have a chipped ID, you’re even more screwed... did you know there are a slew of innocent folks serving time for crimes they didn’t commit because they were convicted on ‘false’ evidence... that is, THEY [bad guys and gals in the gov] can manufacture blood evidence against you, as well as ‘make’ your fingerprints... plus, THEY manipulate the results of lie detector tests... so, what does this mean?
IT DOESN’T matter if you’re guilty of anything, or not, THEY can and will get you any time THEY want.
Yeppers, that’s why the founding fathers were so fond of PRIVACY!!! and, to paraphrase... didn’t give a crap about the whole ‘if you have nothing to hide’ malarkey.

Of course, so too roaring-bad! those poor *innocent* folks at the health food store in California didn’t hide the raw milk and yoghurt better from the feds and the cops’ SWAT-like raid. Yep, black market raw milk and raw dairy products... it’s here, it’s coming... and the Kougaress would be buying those PROHIBITION-like goodies if she could get her paws on some. Instead of gin in the bathtub... yoghurt in the bathtub?

Authoress news and mews ~

The Kougar is blogging at HAPPILY EVER AFTER on Friday, the 30th. Here’s the opening ~

Romance Novella Poetry ~ BUFFALO’S RUSHING WIND

Once upon a time, during the zoom and boom days of the 1990's, I wrote a romance novella titled ~ ROPE THE BUFFALO’S RUSHING WIND ~
Now, don’t laugh, if you are, at my title. Hey, this story won first place in one of the RWA chapter contests, the paranormal category, of course. I think it was the Desert Rose, and that happened *way* back in 1999.


On Saturday, the 31st, the Kougar is posting at ROMANCE WRITERS BEHAVING BADLY.

Holy reptilian boyfriends, Batman!
By Rebecca Gillan

Hi and welcome to your Wednesday fix of Shapeshifter Seductions! Wow, what a week this has been so far. Yesterday, I had two important releases: my e-novella, ‘The Hawk’s Bride’, was released by Siren-BookStrand and my youngest son was released from the hospital. (The poor monkey had appendicitis.) I will be reviewing ‘Cold Moon Rising’ by C.T. Adams and Cathy Clamp. And last but not least, in honor of Ahmad finding a mate, I have a bit of unusual reading for you this week in the form of a woman who claims to have lived with a reptilian shape shifter crocodile.


Linda Swift is our guest today. She has had over 100 poems published and won numerous awards for her work. She is a lifetime member and former president of the Kentucky State Poetry Society.

Thursday Thirteen - 13 places and things to do for the summer...
Taige Crenshaw

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 578 ~

Sylva shut her eyes trying like sheer hell to send her awareness back to Zeke. But, she was blocked – by a good force or a bad force – she couldn’t manage anything. “Crap!” Balling her fists so that her nails dug into her palms, she prayed while tears slipped from the corners of her eyes. “Yeah, that’s right,” she teary muttered, “just when I’m getting used to these ‘powers’... they disappear. Disappear,” she repeated in a defiant shout. A loud sigh tore at her soul and she rolled on her side. “Zeke.” It’s not that she felt something terrible occurred... still...

Zeke stared. “Yes, by God,” Benjamin boomed through gritted teeth. Dark as the devil’s eyes, the portal transformed to black as it consumed the Wormwood submersible. Several moments later, a flash of light exploded within the dimensional hole and spread out. Becoming giant spikes of illumination, it changed the coloration of the sea around them to translucent shades of turquoise. Gradually, the blast of light diminished, the sea appearing more normal. At the same time, the portal shrunk in size. “We’ve stopped moving,” Jamison uttered in the following silence. “That’s the damn good news,” Benjamin began. “The damn bad news...”

Oh, my darling Big Cats, many of the *TOO BIG TO FAIL* INSURANCE COMPANIES are now bilking folks out of their duly-paid-for insurance, including the *Veterans* families. Why? How? Because they can. They’re so BIG nobody can stop them. Plus, THEY got the legal go-ahead from the corrupt sleazeballs in congress and in the white house.
This Big Cat has tried to warn folks for a couple of years now, that Insurance companies are failing and will FAIL. Not only that they will lie, cheat and steal. Who’s going to STOP them? The corrupt sleazeballs are lining their pockets, filling their Cayman Island bank accounts with payoffs. It’s the MOB on steroids. On speed. It’s MOBZILLA and he’s coming for you.
Heck, Wal-Mart takes out policies on their ‘elder’ greeters. Who gets the monies when they pass on to their reward? No, NOT THE FAMILIES. Wal-Mart gets the payout.


Wish Upon on a Blue Moon New Year...
May your most romantic dreams come true...

Poetry Rising smooches from the Kougar...

Oh, I totally agree Savanna, we are poetry. Poems are intensly personal expressions of emotions that fill our every days and nights and all of the times in between. :)

I adore poetry...
