Conversations With Sasquatch, The Beginning Episode 2

   

I immediately sense that a disembodied Cecil has been waiting for this day, excited and giddy to see me.  He has invited all his Sasquatch friends and a myriad of supernatural little people that he once introduced me to when I was a kid.  I am blasted by their ethereal scrutiny and eerie frequencies as I step out of the car to take inventory of my inheritance.  My whole body feels their eyes and begins to throb like a bee sting.  My forehead prickles with a cold sweat.

     I walk gingerly and take pause on the cobbled path, overwhelmed by nostalgia.  Several barn swallows shatter the spell as they suddenly dart from beneath the house’s eaves and swoop at me in angry defiance.  I have disturbed their peace.  They cackle and shriek, making an all out effort to drive me away.  I wave my arms at their bomb runs and duck under the sanctuary of the porch, there I turn and momentarily chuckle at their antics of persuasion.

     The porch boards have separated and have been rubbed raw, but easily take my weight without a moan.  There is a padlock on the door to which the court has granted me Cecil’s ownership key.  

     Inside, though a thick patina of dust has accumulated on the floors, the place looks mostly at peace and undisturbed.  There are patches of swallow and pigeon poop on some areas of the walls directly beneath their nests, but all in all, I feel a wave of gratitude that it has not been ransacked by transients or teenagers with a lust for breaking and entering.  I think its condition speaks (continued at https://www.conversationswithsasquatch.com/conversations-with-sasquatch-the-beginning.html )

A Message From the Other Side

BIGFOOT PARCHMENT # 23  PATIENCE

This is a planet

where souls got dumped

and lost forever; rebels, artists and the malcontent.

We seldom get along.

We invented war and politics.

The Sasquatch watch, wait

and shake their heads.  They transmigrate

out of their dimension 

into this world of deep dark shit…

and mind-speak to us few that will listen.

I’ve been informed,

Patience is a virtue until it ain’t.”

Mindfulness

As the world evolves

men crawl over it;

the Sasquatch laugh

and knock on wood.

They come as crows

to give wings to the dead;

they come as squirrels

to plant seeds of truth.

They come as wolves

to yip and howl; 

they come as owls

to seek who speaks

without moving their lips.

MindSpeak

He stands at the edge of the creek

in the forest.  If I stare

long and hard enough

it’s a tree, not a Bigfoot.

The tree’s image

has been spoken into my brain.

I can see it there,

thick trunked and multi-limbed,

thoroughly convincing me

it’s an oak or a beech.

Conversations With Sasquatch, The Awakening Episode 13.5 by Michigan Author Richard Rensberry   

13.5

DAWN

Today I awoke

in an abyss of bad thinking,

a void fully absent

of the spirit of hope.

The voices of reason

have abruptly gone mute

as if the Sasquatch have sat down to pout.

The portals are closed.  Reality

has descended into a pool of uncertainty…

I wade the results.

Then a bird sings

and the horizon smiles with a glimmer of light.
