Penned Resistance

Penned Resistance is poetic ink urging us to thInk about what is happening to us, to the U.S., to the world, and all that whirls around and inside us. To thInk as our true selves is to resist the forces that seek to occupy or control our thoughts . . . as an individual, a citizen, a man, a woman, a human, a Yeti.

Penned ink to thInk is a link to our primordial freedom ... our freedom to be who we truly are. Let it ring.

A Memento From the Memorial in the Meadow



There are two sides to the same experience

and they are in…separable
one in front of you one in back of you
and the
present
neither one is all there is to you

Couples creation and the making of wo…man
a becoming from invisible to visible to indivisible
life performs in light and the afterlife back lights
the moving meaning
of the evolving living leaving
giving back ground to what comes round
the conductivity connecting
you

A Black Butte Returning



Fire inspired fungi

on the trunk of a cedar burned
but not ash
and the trail takes us higher

Intuitively zooming this mushrooming
tattooing of a high mountain tree
roots
for the climbing mind to branch into
a better being

The Thee to Be

I always knew I liked him
but relationships grow like
any other beginning
in the see of life the end is insight
in meeting
friends of he or she you may see something in between
not fully seen the planted seed

Roots
unseen take long to breathe and branch
then to undercast a shade on a sunny summer day
that filtered light that mighty might in between
the limbs the leaves
the arms the bough the thee or tree unfold a hold
a held within the deeper hymn
a where where a he or she goes to grow
in fields of what they want to know

Survival of the Fit..in



The evolution of the vac…scene

and the crowning of the fiefdom of Covid
delivers onto us Monkey Pox
through the channeling flu…idity and down streaming
of the CDC

We see the con…flu…essence of Darwinian social engineering
man as monkey strokes the do as you’re told
servicing survival of the fit…in
another envenomation from an American laboratory story
needing covering
and the coercion of the jab

Sticks and Stones

Here
are we lost in time and place
where
we are pi…lots lost in lots of thoughts
transcendentals
grounded
elements encircled in a sphere of programmed fear

Sticks and stones can break our bones can also make our homes
but what words will always do is shape and make and take
you to the where so there
go up to come down up
keep your word and your words become
the who in you you wish to be
