New Age Nonsense, a poem to critique?

Shut down,
slammed tight,
chakras are closed
to spiritual light,
aura’s color is
not quite right.
Old fashioned karma
has found its way.
New Age nonsense
you may say
but this shift
in our core
is real.
We fall short
of the mark
and feel remorse,
oh, to be open again.


  1. uicka nd to the point. I likes. In a cold, metal world we leave little room for the things we can’t see and touch.

  2. essence of man survives
    despite man
    when we touch
    we can feel
    my luopan says
    turn right
    at all left hand corners
    and my mirror
    needs moving

  3. Don’t know for sure, but karma seems to function at least on a collective if not a personal level. Reincarnation seems to be ready to be in style for the eco-generation because it feels like a recycling universe with a green code of operation. I recycle here and wouldn’t mind it there.
    I like the flow and the direction of the piece.
    Mine is like Star Wars Force meets Zen deism. It is simpler than it sounds.

  4. I once had my chakras read and/or re-aligned by a reiki master. It was odd how I could actually feel blue and black be lifted from my body. I cried for two hours straight afterward. And she just sat with me and listened.
    (I always do that – throw anecdotes into my responses)
    Our chakras and auras shouldn’t be ignored. It may go against Christianity or whatever, may be looked at as pagan practices, but most depression and anxiety is due to our heart, brain, pelvis, stomach, etc. not being aligned.

  5. If we always hit the mark there would be no reason to keep trying.
    We would lay in our slothenly beds with no motivation in our heads.
    Cliches yeah…but they are true. (New age is cool, but please step away from the tinfoil biker gear)

  6. Excellent writing. Not nonsense. It reminds me of a bumper sticker that says:
    ” My karma ran over my dogma “

  7. Does not this always cycle? A whitewashed new wave reborn with footnotes from the Garden! Be yourself would be better, everything else usually falls in line.

  8. Since the beginning of history, or hers…
    What goes around, comes around.
    Following the Golden Rule never hurt either.
    Thanks for putting your thoughts on paper so well.
    Hey, can we beat those bad auras like pinatas?

  9. Gotta get everyone singin’, Ma:
    “When the moon is in the Seventh House
    And Jupiter aligns with Mars
    Then peace will guide the planets
    And love will steer the stars
    This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
    The age of Aquarius
    Harmony and understanding
    Sympathy and trust abounding
    No more falsehoods or derisions
    Golden living dreams of visions
    Mystic crystal revalation
    And the mind’s true liberation…”
