Consider the moon…

Consider the moon
again it grows – again it thins
not at once

January hot springs…

January hot spring
snowy mountain top
cools burning toes

Gazing at the moon…

Gazing at the moon
in slippers – shivering
while dog pees

Ballad of Empty / Full

Coarse carbon compresses
to become the finest gems
reflecting entire universes
gracefully from within

Sapphires and rubies
strong, rugged with a gleam
channeled from promised lands
we are the stories we share
tales of love and freedom
wrapped in mystery

The truth is only useful
if it sets others free
Have you ever wondered aloud
how it feels to be
fully empty?

Snowflake Star

Mother often told you
“you’re a shiny,
one -in-a-million
snowflake bright star”
dream of flying high
and you’ll disappear so far

So, go forth seeking,
assemble your dopple-gang
sequestered worldwide
350 in America
and thousands more outside

C:

I’ll take my 1 percent
You get the ninety nine
I roll with the renegades
The wanderers are mine

The ones who floated hidden canyons
and explored a foreign sea
will i find you waiting?
maps in hand, well prepared
to cultivate community
