The shiny and fresh Wonders of Awe. For and far too oft. We take things lightly, for granted. Granted earthy Life from Mother Nature of Our World. Legends from Inner and Age-less innocent Wisdom from a Child’s Mind. Herein. Charlie.

 

 

“…My Mind is Exploding with Happiness…”

 

Out of the mouths of Babes. Charlie’s. Surname.

Kept silent to innocently protect. Thus and so.

Unknown and lost to Times, Places and i, Shiro. Now.

Also

 

a Young Male Child to be so precise. That is.

Charlie so named. He was and is.

 

This morn, Saturday began as per norm. The norm of

Chores, Shopping, arranging friendly Meets and so on. On

and to. To a near and by Local Community Gathering. A

Display, Sharing and Showing

 

of Work and Finds of Experts, Novices and Interested Parties.

Of the Works of Mother Nature.

Where Heaven and Earth combine and mix in Form.

Elements, Gems and Minerals that twinkle just. So.

Where Innocence and Truth do meet. Mix.

 

To combine into Awe and Wonder. Meant.

 

Of that moment. Now. IN THE NOW.

 

 

(Music Link)

 

Indeed, THAT moment. That moment

when a Young One. Realises a Dream. When

The Wonders of

Happy Exploding Mind.

Mind Blown

by simply Being. Being

at a Gem + Mineral Show. In deed. His First.

 

With this and that Wonder and Awe. Of Youth. Charlie’s

in particular.

That is. Also. In Mind. His. Then.

 

 

“… My Mind is Exploding With Happiness…”

 

ajoined with that so wide open stare, gaping mouth

and that enigmatic breathless whisper. Of Awe.

 

Having arrived early (…compared to that is Charlie…)

at the Gem + Mineral Showing. Once done.

Several Laps thereof.

 

I decided to take a Seat from a row set along the entrance Hallway.

A magnificent scene, Formational Crystalline Inner Earth in colors

and hues divine. In

a cutaways Fashion with movements and Sounds

of Liquids, so forth

 

and styled and Cabinet Displayed very artily. Also. Was

up. There.

To keep Mind. Serene.

 

Awaiting Companions… all Adults…

to finish up their Ways. Around. The Show

ing.

 

 

This meant that new arrivals would pass and go past. My

Ways.

Several did. Young and Old. Both.

Most rushing by

 

eager to get in amongst the Stalls and Tables laid out

within. The Show.

 

 

Not Charlie.

 

Relishing his chance he strung out, wrung out those and these

feelings of goodness, emotions. That so arose. Within.

He stopped. Stand-still. Statue. Mouth open…

soaking it All. In. Within.

 

The Show. Scene.

 

Till Words did so then arrange those filled so Emotions. That

arose.

Within. Him.

Till Mind had seen, so absorbed this scene. To be seen. Ahead.

Of Charlie. Then.

 

Till voice so filled could no longer. Contain. That and

those so so whirling, precious Emotions, that so. Arose. Did.

Within. Charlie.

 

Till bursting free pressure pulsed from within. Giving such and so

that Voice. To Emotion.

A cry so heartfelt i compelled and turned to join. Emotionally

infected. As i, Shiro

 

turned and just so smiled in turn. Turning

Mind back and over such to Other Times

 

and Places. Where. Where

 

 

that Feeling. Did and had uplifted so. So

in tune with Wonder and Awe.

 

As

i joined in too. To feel

 

“…My Mind is Exploding with Happiness…” as well. Well as

 

The more i, Shiro look. The more. I did see. Within.

 

Of the many and Real things. That so please.

Of how too. To realise that Youth when left to be right

IN the Real. When left to rightly describe. What they Feel.

Reveal Truths of what Our World in deed do

 

and does. Reveal.

 

Even to an ol’ so n so. Like me i, Shiro. Youth

 

can teach Elders too,

by sharing so well and so refreshingly clear. Their

naivety, innocence, that drive and freshness of view. Their

Love and Care. For

 

that and this Our World. Our Home. That which We share.

The Awe

 

 

of those things that really Matter. Within. To Mind. Also.

When Living in this Moment. This here. This Now.

This moment of Real Emotion that so tugs and tears.

That’s… Real.

 

That’s Life.

Take a deep breath. Of That. Just Feel.

What. They feel.

 

Not the chase for goods and accumulation.

‘Tis feelings, emotions, experiences, sharing.

That count. For Real. Within.

 

 

In the Now.

 

Be like Charlie.

Our least. With the Most.

 

Share the Experience of Feeling, yet and not those

ravages of Time.

Share the Experience but keep it age-less,

time-less. Now. Just Now.

 

To relate to young or old. Be young or old. Just

Share. That. What’s Real.

Your emotions, actions, carry forward, all with

that inherent due care.

 

Be not afraid to step back and down into those

shoes. Smaller

though they may. Be. Flexible.

No quashing of Dreams.

 

Go back or others Ways to get a sense of their

fit. Size…

doesn’t matter with this and that. Just Feel. Now. Then

Share.

 

What’s Real. Within.

Show You Care.

 

 

Authors Notes:

Just for the Record.

Whilst chatting to Charlie + Fam. after myOur

Minds Explodeds.

 

I mentioned to and asked Charlie His Opinion

on the Display Cabinet Back-drop scene.

 

He said… ” …The Earth is very pretty

I like the bits that Shine…”.

 

Then. To that and this and His.

I demur, concur. Agree.

 

 

An Exploding Mind.?.

When was the Last or First Times and Places.?.

Yours did.?.

 

That.?.

 

Feel pleased and more than free to Share that

still and so

Moment of Awe… which

filled Thy Mind. Then.

and Then. A Night.

That Night.

Sam Hains Did Run.

The Ode

in Mind. Mine. Herein. Begins. Belows.

 

 

(Music Link)

 

The Run

of Sam Hains.

 

She had to go.

She had to run.

Now.

Quickly.

 

Night was coming. Rains too.

 

Tonight. Was THAT Night.

That Night was Here. Now.

That Night.

 

Closing in quick, Deep upon Her.

Tonight. Was THEIR NIGHT.

 

The Night That Devils Dance. Openly.

Tonight. Here.

 

Grabbing, tucking, pinning Skirt in one smooth motion.

She Ran.

 

Already near full speed when the Rains misted down.

A New Moon. Though Clouds had closed that in.

 

Shivering, inside and out. She ran on.

Recalling those horrid Tales of This Night.

How those caught out.

Were so mis-treated.

 

Things so shamefully done.

Only trickled whispers were so passed down.

 

‘Twas then, just as She thought of.

She Felt. IT. Close.

 

Behind Her. Close.

Almost, not quite Soundless. IT. Was There.

 

Though the Night Cooling.

She could already Feel IT’s Heat as IT so Neared.

 

Strong. With Power.

Everybody Knew. Everybody Said.

 

IT Was Their Night, Their Might.

Tonight.

 

She moved This Way. Then That.

Stealing a quick glance.

Over and around the Shoulder.

Eyes drawn, catching,

 

holding in Sight.

A Single Eye. IT.

Balefully, beaming. Her Way.

 

Wind whistled in Her Ears as She now so frantically raced.

Whipping, biting. Ankles, Shins with Wind-spray, Sand, Shore.

Not too far ahead. Just a lil’ more.

She ran. On.

 

As She slowed, Turning, following the Path. IT almost Touched Her.

She accelerated those Few, Last Steps.

 

A Grab, then Turn.

A Slam and Click.

 

Leaning back against the Door, allowing Mind and Body to Relax.

Letting what had run, run it’s course. Settled.

Patting and Wiping at Her Clothes and Self. Till,..

 

BRIIING… BRRIIINGGG.

 

The Door Chimed. Did so Ring. Then.

 

Ready Now. She was NOT going to be caught out.

Not Tonight.

On Their Night.

 

She So Knew.

What was to be next and done.

She Knew What She Had To Do. Now.

 

Reaching for, then so taking hold of what She had prepped early.

The Wood went warm in Her Hands.

Just Right. For Such a Night.

That Night.

Their Night.

 

She had so just Run.

 

In One Hand, with the Other.

She so,

ever so, slowly.

Opened

The Door.

 

To so Hear a Howl erupt,

a chilling soulful, yet now plaintive rhetorical cry.

 

Childish, Pleading. Persistent.

 

“… HALLOWEENTRICK OR TREAT…”

 

She looked Up.

Straight at IT.

That Eye.

 

IT.

 

As many Hands made Light Work of the Sweet Contents.

In The Wood-Bowl She so Handed over and down.

One Shiny, Moving Direct Lens. Up there.

Stared Back.

 

She wondered as She so Watched.

That Night.

Out There still.

Baring All.

IT.

 

That Leading Light.

That did and so.

Light Her and Others Ways.

 

Home.

 

For the Twists and Turns of a Life are many.

A Life of a Light-House Keeper’s Daughter.

On such a Night.

 

Late from School.

The Run Home.

On such a Night.

Twilight.

Their Night.

 

ALL HALLOWS.

She Knew.

 

The Night of Halloween.

 

Took Many Steps.

Ups n Downs.

Ins + Outs.

 

‘inTweens.

Many Steps.

 

She Smiled. Now.

She had run.

 

She Was Home.

Time to Change.
