Ideas

Ideas come and ideas go.
They’re memes cooking with fire.
Ideas appear out of nowhere
too roll all around inside our heads.
They paint the world we see
from white noise nothingness into
the elegant colors of the morning dawn,
into dark storm clouds, or clear blue sky,
into forest covered green hills
and brilliant shining sun,
into busy big city streets,
or rainy summer afternoon rainbows.

Ideas come and ideas go.
They’re memes cooking with fire.
Born of the dance between
the blue electric light of our spirits
and the flowing world outside,
they allow us to engage the world
and play out our parts
on the wide stages of life.
It’s true that depending
on the ideas you happen to use
life can be a living hell
or an adventure through paradise.

Ideas come and ideas go.
They’re memes cooking with fire.
Our favorite ideas
feel like old, well worn tools
for us to pick up and put down.
We use them daily
to adapt to changes as time flows by
or to preserve as best we can
the imaginary equilibrium
of the status quo.
Other ideas are rough and craggy chunks
of unworked stone for us to struggle with
or sculpt into a finer form, and thereby learn.

Ideas come and ideas go.
They’re memes cooking with fire.
Our toolboxes are as deep as creativity
and as varied and vividly colored
as imagination.
Some ideas are memories.
Some ideas are art.
Some ideas are for getting things done,
some ideas are for throwing away.
Some are for laughing,
some are for flying,
some are for fun,
and some are for improving upon
the beauty of the world.
Some ideas are very special
and blossom and unfold like eternal flowers
as they return home to the mists of our spirits
and become part of our living souls
