so if it's illusion

this is my question

thank you rosie
that is exactly what happened to me....

watched the film 'p.s. i love you'
that takes place in Ireland, partly...

suddenly tears flowed through me
living in the uk for years filled my memory
remembering its beauty
remembering my english friends and family
and englishmen company especially....

belief makes it so

treasure the memories
'they're all that's left of me'
here, tucked in safely,
in my heart, mind and body....

blessed be

essential light

aqua marine stones
focus on color of present moment
peace lives
within my heart

violet stones
passions of lovers
sparks as our eyes meet
hear words of tender feelings expressed softly

hold my hand
stand beside me

winter gives way to spring
lovely wildflowers once again grow
days remain light into evening
laughter rings in our homes

stories shared
fires burn down to embers
warm blankets wrap us
gold veins bonded within quartz

Frost building on balaclavas
Footsteps muted in knee-deep snow
Under oppressive silence
We sip air too cold to inhale deeply
Scrounging for the fire
On the shores of twenty-eight

As somewhere nearby
Karl tears loose a strip of birch-bark
The harvest of nature’s incendiary gift
Elicits a Pavlovian response
From rapidly numbing fingers and toes
Which eagerly anticipate a modest blaze

Judged to be of dubious integrity
I commit an act of violence
On the hollow shell of a pine stump
Although a hundred years dead
These dry shards of history
Will still provide today

Where cedars suddenly give way to expanse
We immediately check on
Momentarily unattended lines
That may already be frozen in place
But all flags are present and accounted for
Nothing stirs above the ice

Squinting against the smoke
We stand too near
Our nascent heat source
Ever watchful for the bent branch
That would offer the promise
Of a speckled treasure

individual lives,
the sensations
of fingers tapping keys,
of hearing the phone ring,
the fragrances of dinner
still faint in the house.
each sensation is blessed.
each decision is blessed.
each tear
and each kiss
on a child's cheek,
all are blessed.

we look at the world up close.
it is obvious, or we fool ourselves
to think that what we see is what exists.
still there are cathedrals
in each of us and every living thing,
so many chambers down deep.
we look in the distance
and see nothing. but we hope.
we hope for flowers in each breath.
i look at the doors, and choose one
to pass through. standing there
in a new place i know that my life
is blessed no matter what
the character of the room.

there are paintings to be painted.

i hear...
there are plenty've
mancho men
(in the grave)
next to women
high on testosterone
the sensitive male
aggressive female

if we just let it go
we can be free
we will be

I'd have written "plenty of" rather than "plenty've" but I love the content of this. Here's to free men - and women!

I searched and searched without detection
proclaimed words lacked expression
abused meaning battered blue
I my journey needs direction
path traveled misconstrued
humbled heart without perception
my reality displays affection
not the verbose chatty fool
Optimism wordy view
truest soul I bear to you

before dawn's first light
moonless stars light the sky
telling ancient stories
of the heavens .....

sometimes i remember aunt minnie,
sixty years ago, a simple,
beautiful, large woman
with hair like the moon
sitting on her indiana farm porch
rocking quietly back and forth.
"how many times i see them stars?"

sometimes i think of lili,
a beautiful, pearl skinned
7 years old, hair like the sunrise,
standing in the deep alaska snow
in her back yard, looking at the stars.
"grampa, every time i see the stars
it's like the first time i've ever seen them."

sometimes i walk frank's beach
along rosario strait,
the sound of stones under my feet,
stones as round as the moon,
and watch the northern lights
dance like seawaves around the stars.
i don't say a word. i don't have to.
i can feel the poem in my chest.

thanks, alyosha ...... one of the things that i love about poetry is that it's all reflection ..... frederic tutel wrote in his novel "van gogh's bad cafe" that "experience itself is nothing, she thought to herself, just raw earth." i think of li po, drunk, in a little boat, at night, leaping into the lake to hug the image of the moon. that's what poets do, too .....

i didn't know

i don't know how no one told me...

now i'm in another country
but they were all my family
teaching unity...

a year and a month ago
from yesterday
she passed into the light

and no one told me

so an email arrives
out of the blue
saying hello
as if he thought i knew
sharing he's survived
since she died

and no one told me

tears flow
i didn't know
where did i go?

i came home
and i left home

in life i roam
in death she's home
in life we mourn
in death we're born

and i pray
maybe this day
for her blessing

my misty maiden she comes and goes
like a tidal force she ebbs and flows
the smile she presents me with at the door
somehow becomes worth so much more
and the time in between to pause and reflect
allows for much needed introspect
but the fireworks fade into the night
and by morning I yearn for her beautiful sight

While endlessly revering
The notion of freedom
No choice exists
Under the iron fist
Of positivism

If the rhetorical glass
Must be half full
And life must always be
Wondrous and beautiful
Evil metastasizes before the blind

This isn’t to say that
All is darkness
But rather that to see only light
Is to indulge what JK called
“The escape from thought”

The former armed with the sword of reason
And the latter with an unassailable belief
In our essential goodness
Virtue and its opposite
Ever grapple for dominance

sending birthday blessings rosie!!
may this moment, this year,
this life, this eternity
be all you can be....
all we can be....

as we
let our love
flow endlessly
finding glee in every breath
or simply letting our Selves be
feeling the stillness and enormity
of our sacred and evolving humanity....

may each moment be your gift of love flowing freely
like a stream spiralling through all of your being
offering and exchanging love with all....
from within the texture of many
and the tapestry of One.

happy birthday.

The year I finally realized I'm better than most men
I'm not in debt
I have no regret
I have no progeny
I'm not into homogeny
I'm not all object oriented
I'm educated
I'm not food obsessed
I don't have breasts
& I 'm fused out of iron

This radio station that I listen to does community service radio for a couple
hours around dawn on sunday mornings, Rosie.
The first hour is a medical one with docs tossing their theories out there.
One of them said that the problem with modern medicine is that people
aren't just living longer, they're dieing longer. I found that to be profound.
I've spent a lot of time with the geri's the last few yrs. And I'm still glad
that I didn't put longentivity into my personal maintenance plan.
But, that's just me. I'm shootin for the heart attack at 60.
Think I'll pick a different target if I make it to 59?
Fifteen years seems like eternity looking forward.
But, it's yesterday if I look back. I doubt that changes with age.
One of the mysteries of the world.

sorry, darlin.. pof blog.. noone is looking anyway

don't bury me in texas
I'm allergic to rednecks
I just play one on tv
you've seen me if you have 3D

I'm down as an organ donor
checked that box when I got rid of the stairmaster
if my body were a temple it would give me a migraine
and there's no way that I can afford cocaine

Heart attack, gator attack, shark attack
yeah, anyone's welcome to what's left
I'm B positive and my DNA is clean
anybody wanna buy stock in a kidney?

No cause for tears

for granny

listen closely
cool water
spilling along rocks
creek flows to river to ocean

summer wind
a moment
then another moment
time never stops

peace is within
life lived fully
love completely

spirit embrace us
day night
sunrise sunset

sending you and your family condolences on your loss.
love, peter & family

Every year her tiny wings

chripping fills the air

What's a chripping, darlin?
I don't think we have those down here.
Got plenty of beer, though.
