friendship and slaying beasts

There is an eternal chamber
protected by beasts
both good and evil
we must be patient
and wait for the precise moment
when the light shines
to see in the dark

it is difficult slaying in blackness
to separate the good from the evil
we will do battle side by side

I will distract with my blunt sword
while you strike true
these wicked beasts
must be felled
by the one who woke them

we each must foster
our own conclusion
we each must destroy
our own inhibition
it is difficult slaying beasts alone

 let us battle on side by side
you know
even superheroes need sidekicks

little diablo enjoys fuss

devilishIf we know the, “devil lurks in the details,”
why do we insist on conquering minutia
and allow our pressure to boil red
I was once taught by folks who prayed looking up,
heaven is a big cool land
whose tenants are interested in just the basics:
kindness, civility, sincerity and humility.
Down below,
the devil is entertained
by those who enjoy hot complexity.

Interesting idiom history: the original idiom was, “God is in the detail,” meaning attention must be paid to the small things–all are important. The more popular, “the devil is in the details,” warns us that mistakes are usually made in the small checkpoints of a project. It’s meant as a caution. So my little post takes a different position. I sometimes think many of us (me included) get so wrapped in the minutia of our daily lives, we have less time for the greater human aspect.

speaking of minutia-I loathe grocery shopping;)
