celibacy allows me
to love more
more deeply without
the confusion
of sexual intimacy
(he says)

interesting
(i think)


i MUST be missing the point?

sexual intimacy
is the smack of a two by four
(maple or oak, of course)
that keeps my attention
attuned with exploring
the depths

i think

[I]i love finding a bit of time to catch up on reading

love is many rooms
in the great house of life.
celibacy allows him
to enter the love room
that he chooses.
sexual intimacy,
the smack of a 2X4,
allows her attentive self
to explore the depths.
love is many rooms.
i was raised to be a priest.
i lived in a poor, isolated
franciscan monastery in the woods.
i left rather than take the vows
of obedience and celibacy.
since then i have
entered many rooms of love.
some i have left, some i remain in.
i remember the fragrances
that blessed each room. today
i am content with the rooms
that i have chosen. tomorrow?
who knows? i'll look through the doors.

Luri; To find more time to read it might be advisable to duck the next 2 X 4 that comes your way!

Lipotufu: What a lovely poem! I wish you juy in ALL your rooms.

some days

there are no rooms
only pockets where
I stash my life
in little bits like
seaglass -shiny
colorful transluscent
bits, the shards
left over from the
vial that burst just
shy of salvation

on other days

I soooo feel those stars, too Rosie. They become a part of me and their separate songs invade my deepest core, past and future novae set their patterns strong. New lecture series this week...and so I drink the stars in from the dark, how else could I relay their majesty, in words so weak, to those who come, to those who listen, those who seek? Sigh.



there are parts of me i cannot post
the parts of me that plague me most...

Droplets
infinity at
its finest!
silent stars
watching us
from afar!
Never scolding
forever holding
us within their arms
Often they are all I have
when this world has all gone mad!
I watch them too!
They make me all brand new
they take away my blue...
sometimes!


Rosie! :)

tonight the stars
in your eyes are
nipples what flow
with milks of
kindness
and feed
my lips what kiss
your sweetest drops
and nourish
the depths of
my universe

tonight the stars
are mine

our offspring wise
fonts of truths we oft don't see
a seed from me
grows to blossoming tree
or frutiful branches giving rise
to fertile thoughts
like jammed full pies!!
:)

now i'm hungry...

my son, last night, walking alaska streets,
called me. pop, i've never seen so many stars,
the thin alaska night, the brilliant points of light.
they are children like i am your child,
like lili is my child, like you are your mother's child.
there are stars everywhere like there are skies everywhere,
inside each of us, above us, ten thousand skies seen,
ten thousand skies not yet seen. i love you, pop,
and i love lili, i love your mom and i love myself.
love is stars. and now an invisible brush
is painting enchanting white strokes beneath the stars.
pop, the beauty doesn't end unless we let it.

- just stardustly loverly, don... catar y responde?

today i will move through a week if i please
this button, this one right here...i can feel it
not see, but the time, it is mine...
and i will, i think, spend that week, today
defying the pendulum at....72*N...
and view the pole star just shy of the
zenith...aye heaven is bolted in place.
ah the stars of igloolik painted in frost
and stories they tell of a hardship life
as hunters roam from the vastness of ice
in death off the edge to the tapestry sky...

here as my heavenly dream unfolds
mere bits of the Hunter rise with the sun
Antares wars not with the edges of twilight
and the dark heart of Jupiter burns ever bright;
and we, scintillating between Light and Dark,
own no petty laughter nor horizons' tears-
waxing and waning in trancetime with thee
our horse flies with fish wings o'er celestial seas
Andromeda chained by her lover's knees
his toes march in time with the gilt Pleiades
and the bull swims the seas, with Europa he'd tease
and i'd bide time with thee in this tapestry, please.

i drank in
the sky this night
curious why here
so many stars greet me
while there where you are
there were so few stars

returning home
again my eyes roam
upwards
feeling the sky so full
lifting my energy
to the miracle

now my ears hear
the ocean waving
on the shore
senses awakened
touching my core

suddenly happy
with a memory
could this be
forevermore?
could we be
touching eternity?

feeling the glory
a sky filled with stars

My Reneii

I remember the night
the lake ate your car
or so you said when you
called...
you were so smart.

But you were muchly like the
cartoony Pink Panther
the one in the ad for
insulation...
always under dark weather.

Your father shook his head
at the boat on the sand
were you sleeping then
too?
at least- soft places you land.

When Ali was born I thought
'you will not drop her-
she'll just suck harder at
breast...
hanging on for dear life.'

You did not drop your babies-
you lived through Iraq...again(!!!)
yet Ali says, "mama drinks from
plastic...
we still don't give her boat keys."

Hmmm. Yes, Ali...and she
from the night the sea
silently stole your clothes
away...
You were so beautiful.

riddled with tickle
'haps an inkling suffices
teach me. know, i would?

i love the harbor
pair'o'docks -one near the bay
t'other riddled with

waterbugs -- toe tick'lers...


posted, edited
reposted...now count the toes
multiply by ten

subtract two hours and
oh, yes...that was thirteen toes
it was, really; add one

better at physics
and calculus- the simple
arithmetic sucks

so much for logic
the quadrivium suffers
illusions; beat feet...

but not before the
late birthday dance taps away
a year (and two days?)

happy birthday, Rosie

i planned the coop,
then flew the coop
gave wings to and sold the guts
kinda like i did with the hives
i've arrived...
to conclusions?
no illusions that
tomorrow the house
or the gardens may
fly the same way
as yesterday's
compulsions...

the birds ate every cherry, they did! the witch grass overgrew the asparagus....cuz i let it. i have better things to do. raspberries, now that was a season or several in a few shorts weeks - freezer's full. the blues have begun and...


cosmic blackberries


through winter's ice the sticks
still rise black and thorny to their sky
forgotten children of the sun
until the thaw, when spring is won.
and leaf they do and green they reach
they suck the raindrops from their sky
they plump they bear and fruitful be
under the sun, her summer's dream.

can you imagine it? i looked up
up into the trees and the brambles
had grown right through the spars
and little lumpy berries now hang
in a home, in the pines, next to cones
ever been shown a photo of black pine berries?
people think i'm nutz! you know
i'm not cuz i am as they are touched, fairly
kissed by radiance, of a harvest sun.

through summer's heat the sticks
brown and elfin figures hail their sky
not asking why their burdens grow
heavily, their task unknown.
they bend, the goddess for them weeps
she sends to mortals from her sky
a burgeoning of rainbows fruits
each heart, each child a cosmic truth.

Rose I know you've been eagerly patiently awaiting to buy my book it's just it's taking me forever to type it up from notebook. Basically I've been trying to offer $50,000 real us cash to friends to type it up and they're too busy? That's aLOT of money for thier position and idk I just go with the flow and spend my time elsewhere than on my work. I need to buckle down but I promise results and it'll be worth the wait ;)

Deep sleeping ambrosiantic rose
Sleeping in the valley
Rise from your stem
Soak in your beauty pores
Accept the world will never be as beautiful as you and your core
And branch out and help someone rise when they're down
And always smile
Keep smiling
For the world is never a cruel fate with love near
So spread your petals of kindness
And love like no other
So that the world returns the favor one soul at a time

sunny August morning
dew cool sparkles
on the green
under cloudless blue
Hello I say to you
cause i have to want to need to
start the day
in the right way
even the shadows
are warm
I color the feelings
of warm shadows
of refuge
of being
of love
of you

maybe there could be more
maybe the sun
cast down
the morning star
of Lucifer
but I did not know of these things
and neither did you
we knew not
but nothing
and yet we knew
how we felt
in the warm shadow
of August morn

how to savor moments
left behind that we can count...

i hold him i can feel each rib
with eyes open i do not know
this face, his hands, those eyes -
still blue, they are, his eyes

"pour me another" he says
and i lift his head his eyes
stare as drop by drop his lips
are wet by what i've spilled

how to flavor moments
bereft of grace unmulitplied...

joy of life is the wake of pain?
silly, he is..."i've lost my mind
for decades; and now the road
is straight, even if a bit short."

i can not hear him sleeping
only silence holds me in my bed
afraid to move i doze i will not
look - the morn is ever soon enough

to favor moments' treasures
what lie beneath the dawn's divide...

do you see the other side
my child, my love, a sister waiting
there are you waiting at the door
too frail to knock with bony fingers

"I'm so glad to be here, " you say
and I hate that you are, you are not
welcome in my grief my pain when
once you were my joy my life

what strife to savor moments
left behind that we can count...

those fireside chats
full of this and many thats
where two people often know
a warmth other than a fires glow

when you stare into the flame
it matters not who is to blame
at the end of things its all the same
and thoughts such as this need no name

As the embers quiet down
banish from your face a frown
as the glow fades into black
look forward ever and never back

Desert Rose
Posted: 12/1/2012 1:40:41 AM
I came across a flower in the desert
and on my face came a smile
for even though it was not surrounded
it seemed also somehow not alone

t'was not the sun the flower craved for
rather it was shade it liked
and so it always was more gorgeous
at end of day or break of light

When the flower looked it saw little colour
save what it saw upon itself
from rich stem greens there were emerging
vivid colours petal bound

so the flower itself became a beacon
who daily refracted other light
whose fragrance glossed on desert winds
carried far into the night

who knows where the wind will take us
who knows what will be the next sight
all we can do is lift our eyes into the heavens
and glory in such splendid sight
