Thoughts in a Box

 

imageedit_34_3532234221

I take the devil out of its box.

To make a big stand.

Yet,

the ancients disregard the plan.

They do not hold me aloft.

Or,

hold me beneath.

I am only stones and bones.

A misguided sage song.

The ancients know…

I can only bequeath one.

And, one lust only.

Decadence for thoughts that are forever lonely.imageedit_37_3807268273

 

 

an Invitation

Crickets and alike hear my random thoughts

Unmasked in the under brush…there is no need for abandonement…

Just a lyrical understanding of loss

Salamander, squirrel, evergreen and barren oak know of cost

Reverberation from forgotten caves

Divots into the forest of rain

Landscape reminders…we are not the same

I am only invited to release the shame

A Church Without Doors

There is no destination to the woods

they are a churches that have no doors

a corn maze to which there is no end…no beginning

a quiet voice…ushering and soothing.

The lingering pines are sage infants waving you in

Fixed scales of clamour and forever reflection

And, yet, I am convinced they welcome me in

The clover is invincible…

The green gold grass…waist high.

Stocks of infant corn stand in allegiance…out of the corner of my eye.

And, that is all I need to know today.

That is all I need to know.

Down with the Dawg!

It’s taken me awhile to learn that if I’m gonna offer the gift of my being, it means offering the fullness of the moment we are in!

What’s changed now is that much more of the time, I mean I’m a long way from being cooked, but much more of the time, when I am ‘here,’ this is it, I am here, and when I’m not here, I’m not here. It’s interesting how when you give another human being, your family, or your business, the fullness of your being at any moment, a little is enough; while when you give them half of it, because you’re time binding with your mind, there’s never enough. You begin to hear the secret, that being fully in the present moment is the greatest gift you can give to each situation. #Ram Dass
