gentle touch
sensitive kiss
eyes of fresh green
float along this cool river
light as a feather
retreat and recover
gold within quartz
heal our wounds
cry our cry
time is the gift
tiny hummingbird
so fast
so smart
a friend
her blouse is open
her sturdy legs
she's busy reading
my moment passed
to write this afternoon's poem

For Helen and George

their spirit permeates the room
joy tears flow

A Love Supreme
Blue Bossa
Helen's Song
Nature Boy

Body and Soul
Little B's Poem

harmony and unity in music
vibrations and colors
laughter and tears
all joy, peace and love

OK...I'm new. Not a poet, but I thought of this...

My faint guidance from directionless desire
Paradoxically imprisons me to aspire and acquire.
In the places where perspectives vanish, and vanishing points end
Concealed in infinite hiding, is an adoring compassionate friend.
Honesty the master, and I am the slave
Conspiring to speak, and keep the hidden hid away.
The heart wriggles and whimpers to be fed,
on you it must rely.
It acquiesces to pump life’s blood,
hoping only that you will seek those who can hear it's cry.
Immune to worldy things and practical matters, do's, don’ts, money, status, or shame
Often it compels us, to words and deeds conveniently without blame.
Like a soft downy feather, that shreds skin like jagged steel
The 'one' can gift me solace, or fail to reveal.
Whether from the salty sea from fishing, from the onion, or the heart
Tears know not context nor cost, they only know that they are.

Thank you. :) There are a couple others...I didn't write them just to write them. They are responses to people from the heart that I chose to put into a more playful form. Perhaps I'll post them.

This thread inspired this poem. Maybe not exactly in the spirit of the thread, but figured I would post it anyway.

Advice I give
mending lives
wisdom I have
a hundred lives

A hundred deaths
seemingly lived
yet seems to me
ive never lived

Thanks for your encouragement Rosie...

There’s a sign on my door
It says sunshine for all
But from where will it come?
On who shall it fall?

Pushed not from inside
To the hungry devout
But extracted from within
By the beings without

Core fires formed and forged
And stoked by the need
But for the thirsty
Leaden ashes might be

Light conquers the dark
Rain and gray pushed into flight
In concert to quench
All that is light that is right

Prone in the glow
Of a warm summer day
Dissolving in once was
Dreaming memories away

Blinding sunshine as viewed
From the source it is known
Blinds not, but illuminates
Some of the many ways home

With contorted thin word
Heart wrought by the fire
Trusting faint guidance
Of directionless desire

Sunshine broadcasts
Randomly wild and free
Which beam warms my heart
I may be gifted to see

Cagily hiding between
“no” and “every” of the “where”
Is the “some” of it all
And it may take me there

To the some of the where
I’ll be destined to find
This sunlight of mine
To shine in my mind

So the gift back to the host
Of light gladly given away
Is the reflection of the lit
Reciprocated each day

This refractory ecosystem
Light given and taken of need
They rely to survive
One and the other, for both to be

So seek out the peddler
You now see how the sunshine is free
So keep your money in your pocket
This one’s on me.

"Gaze upon her and find a peace within.
View her from the tops of mountains
and undersea gardens.
She is that feeling
when all stress, fear
and drives for hunger
and achievement leave you.
For that moment,
a crystal perfect moment
you have found her.
She is Serenity."

snowy egret glides
strong wings
aloft on the wind
graceful bird
so white
water's surface
San Francisco Bay
tall redwood trees
shady groves
musky smell
damp forest
our eyelashes
our warm hands
our bare feet
our earth
beautiful bird
soft white feathers
graceful in flight
today has been lived
natural beautiful bird
full moon rises
we are at rest
how fortunate we are
Thank You

tribute to Jack D

true compassion
self forgiveness
spirit of fellowship
love and service

never close the door
practice love
and tolerance
of others

open my heart
reach out my my hand
I have paid my dues
I have the right to be happy

he brings smiles
we all laugh
we are in the moment
life is fun again

take the path
of happy destiny
where bluebirds ride gentle breezes
to cool treetops high above

the light illuminates our faces
we meet but miss him
our friend Jack
with a twinkle in his eye

Seasonal Transition

the creek is full
as i walked the trail
seeing where high water
had passed yesterday

clean air
dripping wet
scent of humus
ever moving water

pairs of wood ducks swimming
distant white stormclouds
blue skies above me
afternoon light

brown leaves
saturated earth
drops of water
pearls of my heart

strong straight
tall redwood trees
deep green foliage
rich brown bark

my lover my angel
thinking of her smile
knowing she cares deeply
peace realized in this moment

I Wanna Eat You

there was an asiago exhalation
in her expression and I
offered a MacIntosh apple
sipping merlot as was our wont
it just seemed right

there was a natural progression
toward wellness that
I crunched right into like a
golden delicious when she
skewered me with acupuncture
and I panted,

and then the gorgonzola hit me with
dried cranberries and walnuts and I
cringed with glee, my chin dripping
balsamic redemption in hebraic interludes of
compassion and guilt

all the olives of Sicily could not
make her tapenade

love's silver lining

rain cloud flooding colors
birdsnest treetop point
soft light shows rainbow
nature is dominant

shadow vanishing point
family of critters
gift of love today
true to self

death of the old way
begin new and ready
tender soft touch
rain drops on her hair

origin of fear disappears
fleeting butterfly of summer
sky full of memories clouds
shifting lower gear

where am i dreaming
soft green meadow
under the redwood trees
sleeping all night long

only one choice
not drinking today
humble prayer goes out
warm sun on my skin

the rain came down hard
the storm is passed now
at last we are home
her search is ended

color of persimmon

flavorful cashews
salty delicious
lips lick
lazy dusk

days grow short
crescent moon
from time gone by
now remains with us

green October eyes
shades of sky blue
hummingbird smile
tender kisses

lovely colorful orchids
white sweet lilies
gentle lavender
her sensitive prince

light becomes scarce
delicate fragrance
shadows her form
choice is hers

peaceful night sunset
her open blouse
her heartbeat

another leaf

begin as angel rose
delicate petals
slowly blooming
fragrant open mature

brilliant aspen foliage
Sierra Nevada environment
gray squirrel works hard
soft furry bushy tail

rocks as steps
regal tall trees
life sustaining forest
cone covered earth

afternoon sunbeams
spotlights natural colors
all clouds
revealed in sunset

emerging purple dragon
precious gold veins
October orange dancers
heavenly pink feathers

giving gently
her loving spirit
a love supreme

Dear Rosie, my dear
it has finally cooled down
no more dragon breathing down your neck
shorts and tees
no longer please
as they did when it was hotter than heck
the shimmering heat
finally takes a back seat
tho' a dryness still makes your skin crack
but the stillness at night
and the stars, what a sight
tell the desert that winter is back
I am curious, hon
if you are all done
with your journeys down this way
if not, then be sure
to not be demure
and we'll share a beer again, okay?

A monster moon on Halloween
Among the things these eyes have seen
So round and fat and seemingly near
Yet in reality so far from here

And so it is with time and space
Turn back the clocks and slow the pace
This repeated hour in winters name
In spring will be returned again

But who are we to adjust the light
To shorten day and protract the night
The thoughts of those who think too much
Can’t help that they were made as such

Endless questions only now annoy
Small inroads made they do destroy
Better they should remain unsaid
Than turn what lives toward the dead

Strange how the months
run into years.
Minutes become;
more meaningful.
Although they only come
once in awhile.
What once was so long;
now is so very short.
Colours of our lives
blend , leaving
us in a very grey place.
It is the ocassional bright
colorful star that shines.
The face of one we love
so very much that gleams.
It can be almost anything;
just something or someone
that brightens up our view.
Makes us feel all brand new;
if only for a moment...
This is my Wish for YOU!

Rosie :)

Tribute to my friend NB

Written with reflection on Norton Buffalo, a friend, a great man
and a true musician who carried a message of peace and love.

His words:
"I continue to pray that our nation,
and the rest of the world,
can find a path to peace.
Sending out lots of love!!!"

time never stops
we comply with its pace
as days grow short
warm blanket comforts

our words
our family
our thoughts
our lives

we remember music
we reflect colors
feel joy
hear laughs

remember friends, old & new
unforgettable moments
rainbow's grace
shared grateful smiles

November scenes

great white egret
across water
black cat
stalking prey

wings spread wide
action motion

sun dips beyond hills
fall day ends peacefully
earth colors blend together
moonrise now our romance

heavy rain
in sunlight
alder leaves
turning from gold
to copper
dance wildly
with the rain.

these words
copper color
fall, nodding &
in autumn tears.

the years sweep though
like these autumn showers
both are the size
of nearby islands
held in cups of sunlight.

on my cheeks
tears and rain
and already
the air
and my cheeks
are drying
and bright sunlight
is crowns
in the hair
of alders
and those of us
standing motionless
in all of circling life.

" all of circling life."....
in awe of circling life
fire colours deepening
soon will need sweeping
weeping trees
losing leaves
releasing autumn finery

~ ~ ~ ~

recently quite often
deer have come near
tasting early morning morsels
while today a fox trotted past...

I called to my son
take a look out his window
just as the fox stopped
to stalk perhaps a rabbit...

like a cat, she waited
stepping very slowly
and silently....

time stopped

when the tension rose
with the infinite pause,
she pounced playfully
at nothing

then continued her journey
trotting into the woods.....

my son called out
how cool that was to watch....
I smiled lovingly to myself
he enjoyed it as much as me

i remain grateful, so grateful
let me remember lessons
knowledge of today
discount price i have paid

i pray for help & do work
to overcome a core of fear
that i do not repeat bad habits extremely well learned
finding freedom from bondage of self

we live ourselves into a new way of thinking
we don't think ourselves into a new way of living
i seek courage to change
& willingness to learn

spirtual progress
honesty with self
open mindedness

to amend is to change
completely different
basis of faith, trust
vision of spiritual health

given another chance
every day is a bonus
life of love & service
we share it to keep it
