here is ancestors’ voice

rising upon the air

encircling

welcome home

allowance

I am

love not lost

preserved in breath

the fill

the unheard

ponders answered

here

now

definitions fall

I am

not to heal

not broken

no path is straight

just forward

nothing destroyed

merely changing form


Hiking Mystic

repelling down a loose strand

of raggedy mountains

while stars spark

into ginger clouds

laughter screaming

down the chute

lean back, no forward

speed is the same

eagerness enhances

lean forward

inhale kicked up dust

for there we return

at the end of the strand

*******

raggedy mountain


Terminal

sleep and consciousness battle

flameless candle of control

leaving me to wonder

where crazy lives

ponders and

plays

does

absurd board

a bus to sensibility

others searching maps

missing by fleeting minutes

opportunity for the unexpected


This Way

waiting for calls

to go out in the wild

grasslands as the frontier

 a place where someone can

dance in rain split by sunrays

tramp through mud molded as clay

feel the elements wash across

a servant’s soul in answer

peering across the field

no longer in isolation

waiting for calls


Sixth Sense

dragon quest moves
along these streets
cloaked gray mist
to a marble bar

where flower can bloom
beneath boiling water
ailments healed by
chrysanthemum

words drift to open ear
anxious discovery
of the veiled lair
passage home


Awaken

elusive dreams float
between id and ego
creating a strange parade
audience or participant
desire or self-control
passion or planning
a combination
truth naked
like the emperor
eyes are shut


If You Look

P6190045

 

 

if you look at life as a collection

of memories, celebrations, events

stringing together the pieces can be

like loading a ribbon with jewels

 

but stones can be semi-precious

they sometimes lose their shine 

 

if you look at life as a journey

at some point you must consider

the trail, where it leads, where it began

perhaps wondering if you misstepped

 

but herein lies the adventure

while discovering one’s own path

 

if you look at life as this moment

breathing out and then breathing in

you might glimpse a star in its brilliance

finding out what is already within
