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.

Sunflower Dream

Swa…mi amor master spirit
unlocking the thoughts that lift me aloft
princess of valleys and peaks into the subtleties and realities
the birds and the bees sunflower dreams
following sunny rays days and other shore waves

a smile riding up and down miles turning the corners
into bends so things come around

the spin I took
I looked around

where the umm…brella was to reign down upon

grips his pen and taps out its curse
for worst then his head hurts and the heart misses a beat

that then a revolutionary movement beheld him
from criss-crossing the rubicon of a checked past that betrayed
the rising tide inside
a weaning a passing into meaning to be

Surrounding All of We

where does your warmth come from
blanky security near you how far are you now
wrap around tomorrows weave yesterdays today

the magic carpet ride arrives at dawn
each day it may arise
little hills little hills taller peaks it seeks
it sets down where you come round the role you play
begins a day began begone it’s hard to see
surrounding all of we the consciousness sea
the wave the shore

the warmth


Gathering Above

Backpack on the hill…sides all around him
views the steep climbs down and up
through this life the hike continues
the vision here improves our insights
the walking stick figures that heard
his hymn

Sing in the wind tumbleweeds and we
relatives of the same scene
knowingly carry on the further see
gathering above this home
