Reflection

  • …Happy

    In
    beauty’s birth
    every day rises with the sun
    to align with the hilltops first to see the rays
    ways to fill the canyons with the depth of delight

    She alights the sage in the desert plains
    then the rains drop the flower petals
    to ground the soil to souls shown sunflowers
    her smile

    Filling the slightest of life’s corners
    with an encirclement spiraling out
    creeks into streams rivers dream
    in flow salmon rise the rapids
    ripples whirl in curvature
    to
    beauty’s birth

  • 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

  • A Lone Couple



    A lone couple trim a tree a day before

    Christmas Eve
    near a bridge over a creek
    so they can see
    the crossing scene

    The branches cleared
    the trunk reveals the growing rise
    of stream to creek to river flows
    the salmon sea then know their heading
    home

    Upstream the cup runneth over
    a lone couple sat at a table in an empty
    pizza place
    through the window from the salad bar
    seeing scenes from the kitchen from the register
    you could assume they were
    alone

  • 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 Quantum Fluttering Fuel

    Imagination
    Painted Ladies make that
    migration
    made passing through the cocoon living through anewed
    consciousness
    takes flight nectar of life is knowing our life
    wills
    a light

    Moth in the night butterflies day flowers delight
    if we bloom we bring beauty through
    even the tiniest crack in materialist facts
    a quantum fluttering fuel to continue influencing

  • A Trip In Us



    Serendipitous is a trip in us

    a synchronicity that lives in us
    a special gift that gives to us
    a lift that arrives as a grace to decide

    A place to go a scene to see
    a place…meant for us to perceive
    the greater design a re-find-meant
    to remember why we wander into
    wonderment
    an arrangement with a vibratory intent
    sent
    from a become one for a sense

  • Always There



    From the first breath from your first look up

    from your first steps every turn those twists
    the churning tears the rising switchbacks the stirring mountain highs
    the valleys lived the streams of consciousness
    the shoring up the rivers down the riding waves of rapids dreams
    the timbre of the voices heard and the echoes reassure

    the howl
    of canyon creeks thoughts received ford relief
    in the always there the inner metaphysics
    the arc in the texture of the crossing beams
    the other day the other way the other side

  • An Arrangement

    He took up the guitar to be around his violin
    the strings of things that tie
    he improved and he could sing and they began to play
    a couple and then a bass
    a trio then a band and a violin that couldn’t sing
    so another bow figured in then a mandolin
    drums a banjo and so it goes
    then some bars then some clubs

    and what began as a couple became a group
    and the first violin took a seat
    at rehearsals loosening the tie was the wait
    the listening turned to thinking what had begun
    to bring the fingers closer to the rings on their hands
    in bands of peace and love

  • Bats Man and Eating Animals



    Panacea for a Pandemic

    SARS too SARS COV-2
    bats man and eating animals
    the virus of us blood letting from a wet market
    seen

    A consciousness shot heard round the new global reality
    begins to see Chardin’s “Noosphere”
    not the man made Anthropocene but a means to an
    interconnected one
    not just to one species but one with all thee’s
    birds bees the tallest trees streams the living truth
    the heard immunity
    “Thou shalt not kill”


  • Bill…ing

    Heard the Rattlesnakes last evening full of life
    coiled fates entangled states
    heard the rattlesnakes that lasting sound you don’t forget
    if you don’t listen it’s that sound that bites

    Driving home that night the rocky peaks
    the sun about to set
    in the road up ahead I said
    rattlesnake
    the brakes were dead the steering wheeled
    the spin I took
    I looked around

  • Branches Off Infinity

    Stick figure beneath
    the Poet Tree
    branches off infinity fall to earth first
    from above the matter below

    behold
    the fire and the cold
    the river the stream the creek
    the crack in the facts
    that allow for thee to reach

  • Calabasas What Does It Tell Us



    Calabasas what does it tell us

    foggy morning helicopter parent on his way to coach
    driven parents’ children
    crashed in the Santa Monica Mountains
    harmonicas in harmony
    to
    sadness

    One of nine was a man of fame and following
    an overflowing streaming
    of memories memorabilia ability and memorials
    adulations and idolatry
    the hall the call of fame but what of the dam
    the watershed the tears of her the fears of his
    the fall from grace the rape case at stake life in prison
    Kobe for sexual assault and false imprisonment
    rape is not adultery

  • CoMet Man



    Comet

    picture us in a wisp of reality
    traveling through a cosmic trip
    bubbling life bursting through atmospheres
    spheres of influence
    expanding through our consciousness
    let there be light so in the dark
    night

    backdrops lift us up towards a higher peek
    seek that which that stirs
    what makes you into a silhouette
    a cast surrounded by ups and downs
    that coming around

  • Frequencies You Oversee

    Overthinking if it brings you into depth
    where deeper thoughts prevail
    then what caught you releases you…
    prosper

    If the thinking is a sinking that ends
    at the bottom its means
    is a way…ward believing a deceiving
    that delivers with greater and greater
    odds that overcoming overthinking
    is an evening of destruction a morning
    awakening that has taken away
    another day into another night
    switchless
    overnight over and over turns you over…
    to thoughts that leave you alone

  • Gathering (In Memories)

     

    Tribu…taries we
    driftwood from the sea
    we walk the shore of
    evermore
    to see

    Ashore the gale force winds
    the storm the sails the waves
    the frequency of winding trails bring us
    to aware

  • 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
    sun

  • Genesis



    Visitation restoration

    of what was becomes
    memories memorials rememberings
    the vitality of creating those
    bringing these to a revival

    The arrival
    the furthering friendships
    the ports of call recalling
    the echoing songs
    souls sailing hearing heard voices
    bringing life lives lived

    Thanks living in the breath
    the vast expanse to grasp
    the all and beyond the love it takes
    to walk within and beneath
    the heavens great the days and ways

  • Happy New Year

    Be absolute in finding the defining
    resolution
    Truth
    shunning the excuses of which, … which in you is un…
    becoming

    The snow job isn’t in the mountains
    the avalanche is being in the trance peaking in the darkness
    of
    absolutism

    Solve
    the equation of who and the you
    becomes
    the one within … the One
    the cosmic geometry without measurements
    divisions
    be the vision…ary you envision

    Its the Resolution
    Revolution

  • Just as Real as Here

    There is a place called
    Love and Understanding
    you can actually go there you can actually live there
    it’s as real as anywhere
    there

    is love and understanding
    and there is where
    you want
    to be

  • Little Cow Wow



    The little cow looking ahead

    not looking down on his hooves
    behooved why was it the herd were stopped in their tracks
    was it a matter of facts
    stayed by the flat white picket apparition partition
    grooves repeatedly seen as a checkpoint for
    defense

    He could see at his feet the stripes painted white
    under stars and stripes glistening
    for the listening herd there was no passing at night
    but
    for little cow wow there were plenty of thoughts on his brow
