BEYOND THINKING OF SELF/GOD
CAN ONE SEE OR THINK WHAT ONE IS?
CAN ONE SEE THEIR OWN EYE
THEIR OWN EYES’ EYESIGHT
THAT SEES THE OUTER WORLD?
DYING<DEAD TO ALL THAT IS ABLE TO DIE
COMPOST PILE/FERTILIZER FOR
NEVERBORN/NEVERDIE ETERNAL BLOSSOMINGS
THE INDIVISIBLE/INVISIBLE IMMORTALS’
I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire.
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid, more accessible;
becomes a wing, a torch, a promise.
to live so that which
came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
came to me as blossom,...

GENTLE UNDULATIONS OF PEACE OF JOY SWELL FORTH
A DOUBLE OUROBOROS SOURCED
IN VAST TAO CORE WITHIN
DANCES WITHOUT IDO’S ADOS
CELEBRATING TAO CORES IN ALL THAT IS
near the inland murmur of streams,
and the gracious waving of trees,
the beauteous vesture of earth,
and sublime pageantry of the skies,”
wrote two hundred years ago
as she envisioned a world
ravaged by a deadly pandemic and
weighed what makes life worth living.
the melancholy John Keats wrote in the same era,
a century and a half before Lorraine Hansberry
considered the mightiest remedy for depression
and observed that
“hills, the trees, sunrise and sunset
— the lake the moon and the stars / summer clouds --
the poets have been right in these centuries.”
To love is to undress our names.
look at love...
how it tangles
with the one fallen in love
look at spirit
how it fuses with earth
giving it new life
with this or that or good or bad
pay attention to how things blend
the known and the unknown
see how unknown merges into the known
of this life and the next
when one is born from the last
one feels but deaf and dumb
the other speaks in words and signs
earth and wind
enemies and friends all at once
the wolf and the lamb
the lion and the deer
far away yet together
spring and winter
manifested in the equinox
since the earth and the sky
are mingled just for you and me
sweet yet silent
don't get mixed up with bitter words
right out of my own heart
how much more union can there be?
