Earthereal Enlightenment

What if the Sabbath weren’t a day
but a state of being
that permeates our earthereal Eden? 

What would you keep holy?

Leisurely Life Lessons

I could get used to this leisurely life. 

Wake up without an alarm. 

Stretch, yawn, linger on.

Get my long list of to do things done. 

Read, write, learn without interruptions. 

Walking a snail’s pace on the treadmill while catching up on world news...

Unprecedented attempts to slow the spread of a new kind of flu leaves me wondering what more we can do?

Quiet calm surrounds m...

The Crucible of Change

The Crucible of Change

 

Somewhere, in the chaotic crucible

An idea is forming.

In the churning turmoil a star is birthing

An answer building.

In the dust of the dying world

A way can be found.

From our dark place see the future,

What can be done.

Accept that now does not work for all, 

Too many cast aside.

Relearn what’s important, what we need and

Cast asid...

Between Dreams

There is a moment between dreams

when you’re neither here nor there

A dream can pull you one way

Or pull you another

 

There’s a calmness and understanding

That your inner self can touch

That your secret self can feel

Pulling you together

 

Perhaps you’re in tune with someone

Connecting soul to soul

Someone that you’ve never met

Someone that you’ve known, for...

Shall We Dance

Ah, the magic of night 

when obligations are over, 

another adulting day in the books. 

 

I rest my weary body, 

set my boggled mind free 

with a little poetry...

 

Your words await

like a teen with a corsage

to take me to the prom,

where we twist and twirl

under twinkling dollar store stars

and a paper moon.

 

Happy memories pop up

among technicolor...

Is There, In Truth, No Beauty

Is There, In Truth, No Beauty

 

I am the dry path

Sat between

The first rain drops

 

I am the dandelion

Dancing in a field

Missed by the scythe

 

I am the spark

That jumps

From flint to straw

 

I am the breaking wave

Crashing up against

Deserted beaches

 

I am the words

Caught in the throat

Of dirty liars

 

I am the light

Crawlin...

Tuning In

Can you hear me
on this crowded 
frequency?

Is the earth turning
to quicksand
beneath your feet?

Let poetic music 
drown the chaos,
set your spirit free.

No more worries. 
Only peace, 
love, harmony...

Lucid Dreams

I want to sleep, so I can dream. 

Dreaming makes the pain go away,

weakens my prison walls,

so you can rescue me. 

 

I feel your warm breath on my face,

your loving embrace... 

 

Hand-in-hand we run through the lush,

exotic island. 

 

Our laughter echoes among the trees

as we look towards the horizon and

see eternity... 

 

Dawn beckons me.

Herd (Co)Mmunity

Stir crazy, 
my mind’s hazy. 
Penned in like chicken 
that never lays...
e-mergency broadcasts 
and a merging of powers. 
 

When did we surrender control of the supply chain? 
I hear vegans got beef
with carnies, 
but you can’t get the show on an empty road.

 

Do we even know where our food is grown? 
Butcher, cheesemonger, greengrocer, and farmer... 
were stripped from our com...

When I’m Gone

Will you miss me

          when I’m gone?

When there are

           no more words

                   to greet you

                            with the rising sun.

Will you still connect

             to this energy

                    that reaches across

                          space and time,

the same infinite love

               that powers the moon, 

       ...

That So Called Life

That so Called Life
It was great at the start
Thinking I was so smart
Living life for me
Just wanting to be free
day to day
Living my life on display
Not caring who I pushed away
Life My way
were my thoughts
Not even thinking
What it might costs
Wondering why
i kept coming back for more
Got mad
Started
slamming doors
Chasing something
Just to feel
 alright
Kept partying

Life

Fear is the real virus.

Who will close the last door?
A virus brings you in prison.
But fear is the real disease,
Panic and Hysteria 
Cause all the symptoms.
It gives the powerful more power
And the lonely ones
More loneliness.
Isolation is not healthy,
Fears just make us sick.
Go out and live,
Don't read the news
And you will stay healthy.

Artists & Critics

She doesn’t sing to win awards,

she sings to breathe life to her soul,

connect with spirits tuning in,

let them know they are not forgotten. 

 

She knows she will have critics

that judge her art lacking. 

Their negativity is nothing she hasn’t

overcome from herself a million times

on her rocky road to freedom.

 

She smiles as the ivory tickles her left palm,

A Poet's Prayer

Lord, thank you 
for this gift 
of expression 
through words. 

Please help me 
bless others 
with the poems 
I share. 

Help me write 
from a place 
of compassion 
rather than ego. 

Let your 
light shine 
through my 
life songs. 

Help me project 
the same 
unconditional love 
you give me. 

Amen.

Brick Roads

Ten years old,

gigging frogs,

avoiding horny toads. 

 

Then a teen,

in search of the wizard,

playing pinball, drinking, smoking. 

 

On to adulthood,

pushing back when anyone 

crossed the line. 

 

Now, 

doing time

with this karma of mine.

 

Traveling brick roads

that lead to

nowhere particular. 

 

But, as long as there is

Shadows

Living in the shadow

of someone else’s life

is a safe hiding place,

most of the time. 

 

You get to observe, 

detached, 

no fear, no pain. 

 

Fertile breeding ground

to create art, music, poetry...

 

Until the shadow turns around,

chases you down, 

strips you naked in front of a

stone-casting society. 

 

Do you stand erect

in the blinding light...

Chalk-White Moonlight

entry picture

An Arctic air
pushes past the cracking door
as we step out
into the newly forming night
with many friendly cheers 
chasing us from the hall
The searing wind
grabs you by the ears
seconds aboard
and your bones will know the chill
in the chalk-white light
of this moon

Snow falls slowly
first on the cliffs above the lane
then these cobbles are scribbled out
under a virgin whiteness

How Do I Love Thee

How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.

I love you wax poetic
about life, love, dreams.

I love you wish upon stars
and count your blessings.

I love you continue to love
with a thousand holes in your heart
and soar with broken wings.

I love how you speak to my soul
without saying a thing.

Being Human

Rubber scrapes the soil

orchestrating a path

with feet.

Watching tread copyright nature

with a flawed melody,

a percussion of leaves crunches beneath,

touching gales with a verse of words-

before the chorus fades.

Reason to Stay

When sun comes against all odds

And the colours of life just pop

Or when the rain falls

It falls and falls

And you wet your lips

With piping hot tea

With warm biscuit

Savour the crumbs

Cosy and safe

In the arms of a jumper

The padding of the sofa,

Like a huge hug

Or when your face aches,

Your stomach vibrates

Because you are fighting to breathe

Through ...

Breathing.

An automatic bodily function,

we don't have to think, we just do.

From our first screaming breath, our in utero breathing, our final gasp.

We breathe.

But every breath is different.

This is my calming, in through the nose and out through the mouth, breath,

This is my deep breath and count to 10 that stops me losing my temper.

This is my quick breath when I'm teaching and talki...

Controlling Our Lives?

Do we choose who we really are?
Do we decide what things we do?
Do we have the power to shape our lives?
And make our dreams come true?

Do we have a say what is in store?
And what will be our fate?
Are we in full control our minds?
Can we help it's happy state?

Or do the gods govern this world?
Is there any point in resistance?
But if you ask me who's really in charge,
I say we cont...

Kindred Spirits

How can it be that you 

are on the same 

spiritual path as me...

God exists as 

infinite energy.

We keep coming back 

as various entities 

until we learn

life lessons 

from history.

Love is eternal 

as it should be.

Writing is our way of

understanding everything.

We cross oceans of time 

to find our flame. 

Kindred spirits we are, 

lost and lonely...

Que Sera Sera

I loved you.

You loved me.

We lived life 

in perfect harmony,

wild and free...

Until some pretty young thing 

lured you away from me 

lies replaced honesty, 

trust evaporated completely. 

Now we spend our days

dreaming, separately 

of how good life used to be. 

Que sera sera, 

You love you.

I love me.

Without possession,

passion, jea...

The Big One

A question is asked,

"What is the meaning of life?",

Deep discussion occurs,

Tales of struggle and strife,

For me, however, it is much simpler:

To love; that is the meaning of life

Time.

T I M E .

We're all so hung up on T I M E .

Hurry up, don't be late, set an alarm, meet this deadline.

T I M E .

When do we take the T I M E to breathe?

Stillness holds so many answers, yet we won't slow down T I M E .

It passes quietly, for long times unnoticed.

Other times it elbows its way into your life, with a reminder that we don't have much...

TAG

entry picture

Over and over, 
I see your name 
like a tattoo 
on my brain. 

A flame 
that ignites 
not on deed or fame, 
but simply a name. 

A tag, reminding us 
who we are:
dreamer, poet, 
old soul, 

who despite living 
an alternate reality, 
believes in passion, 
love, happily ever after...

No Dice

We track the oblique, sly fireflies
that keep popping fitfully by.

While life swarms invitingly by the side
we remain rabidly hustling
recklessly trailing
those brusque cracking stars
      ...shifty, deceptive, volatile
in onyx-bronze, raven nights



We: the tenderfoot novice
bulldozed on many a graceless trip
half-cocked, peripheral, stoned
and profoundly ill with pitiful

short-sigh...
