The whole of life

Where there is “yes”
There is also a “no”

Where there is life
Its powered by death

The left turn
Will turn right
Closing the loop
Creating a circle

The whole of life

A Different Kind of Homeless

•November 7, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Alone
In a crowded room
A single within clusters
Like a rogue planet
Without a sun
Not beholden to anything

Quiet
In the cacophonous world
Like a stone
On the river bank
Hearing everything in its silence

Still
In the rushing waves of humanity
Like the tree
Rooted to earth
An easily found shady tether

We homeless
See and Hear and Witness
Life
From our
Solitary
Silent
Shelters

And we are called:

Ritual

•November 6, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Baptismal water
Hand polished rosary beads

A song of praise
A prayer of gratitude

Silence of meditation
Stillness of yoga

Candle flames
Stained glass windows

Incense
Smokey sage

Quiet reflection
Genuflection

However its found
Live with Love

Ode to Dawn

•November 5, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Good morning
The cool breeze whispers
Stirred by fingers
Of golden sunshine

The air
Fresher and sweeter
The light
kinder and gentler

And nothing is impossible

For hope is born again
Arising in this new day

Good Morning!

Memories of Norma

A short walk shared

Memories
Light and airy
Like feathers
Solid and weighty
Like stones

Thank you for this
Feathery Mosaic

Good-bye
God Speed

Love,
Michelle

Our Ultimate Obsession

•November 3, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Measured with movement
Pendulums and gears
Planetary orbits and rotations
Atomic decay
Lunar phases

Carried
On our arms
Around our necks
In our pockets and purses.

Controlled with
Schedules
Limits
Manipulation
Take an hour in spring to sell an extra TV

Define everything with it.
Slowest
Fastest
Waster
Saver.

Time’s up.
Pencils down.

What time is it anyway?
Now

Flight of Fancy

•November 2, 2013 • Leave a Comment

The flock’s flight

Soaring, Spinning

Reeling, Rising

Feathers finely finessing

A wonderous sight:

Many lives moving as one

 

How?

 

One mind

Without thought

A single tune’s vibration

Simplified into

Single movements within

Single moments

 

May I sing this tune

With you

This morning?
