Is The Drain Really Unclogged?

|Awe|Aaron Blakeley

Is the drain really unclogged The week started normally enough Monday morning breakfast and work, then Crossfit. That is where things went a little askew from the normal grind. See a spur of the moment obstacle course and this old mans endocrine system aliened like the planets on some cosmic solstice. I felt spry and ready for the class and decided that a vigorous step up onto a thirty inch box was exactly what I ...

Recently I published an article on the blog ” They Call Me Dad.” Here is an excerpt. What raises my hope and maybe makes me and possibly you, those that share honey and locusts with John The Baptist as he spoke in the wilderness, is this glorious thought: we need not kill each other to have change. I know, take a moment breath it in and then let the thought as adrenaline in your veins, ...

In physics, string theory is a theoretical framework in which the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. It describes how these strings propagate through space and interact with each other. On distance scales larger than the string scale, a string looks just like an ordinary particle, with its mass, charge, and other properties determined by the vibrational state of the string. When we speak we vibrate the air so ...

Capacity is a wonderful word describing the maximum amount of; you name it. Circumstances is also a word that is used often when we can not say what it is that brought us here, “It is just our circumstances.” Circumstances are like a wave that washes over our temporal experience they  can be good, bad or indifferent. Though they are usually tangible reflecting light so that we might see them. Their existence effervesces always in ...

Forgive Me - The Daily Haiku - Aaron Blakeley Writer Poet

Forgiveness is something that we take for granted both in the giving and receiving. I often feel a pang of guilt for things I have done in the past. Coarse words or biting comments come back to haunt me. It is in these moments that I have to realize that God has forgiven me and I need not hold myself condemned. I have been forgiven and so should forgive even myself.

The Wall of Fog Does Churn and Reach

If the wall of fog does churn and reach If it breaks revealing the sun If creepy entropy robs my marrow If I find myself in peaceful rest If everything I own was suddenly dust If everything I own was suddenly gold If I captured a sunrise in a poem If I alienated everyone I know If it was suddenly illegal to be me If I am celebrated on high Though I be blessed Though ...

Creator of Leaves - A poem - Aaron Blakeley- Blogger Writer Poet

Once in a restaurant after eating morning rays illuminating distant trees I lamented my being, not in the forest amongst the leaves How desire burned in me a deep sigh I have heaved from my responsibility, I longed for a moments reprieve And not to nap or be entertained To get lost in the embrace of nature and to consider the creator of this creature For in me and surely in you a wild abandon does ...

Sometimes when I consider this world, our cells on up to our relationships, I am stunned. Believe what you will of creation whether it be a literal seven days or the cosmic dance of creation condescended to us as seven days. Our universe if a finely tuned watch and it is only the Makers order that keeps it in check. Both in his verbal order to exist and his organization of ever single atom and physical ...

Shadow Rest

Nature can be so dangerous, a cliff, fog bank, tornado, avalanche; you name it! Nothing man-made releases the same amount of energy as nature left to its own devices can release. Stars explode, planets are cracked and melted into balls of lava in the void of space, yet in all of this God is not only in control but infinitely more powerful than all of these natural events combined. Truly his wrath is not only ...
