#379. pontillism

September 8, 2010

positioned
at the head
meaning binds
crown to creation
flame to fire another
year an arbitrary point
an infinite number on any line

#378. eventually canaan

in the land
of oil and money
only the road
remains constant
and everyone
is a ghost in transit
across time
space becomes less
expensive
and more valuable

#322. eagle bone flute

July 13, 2010

tasting
the sunshine
flowing through
yr native eagle bone
flute with all the notes
stroking my skin and kissing
kissing kissing my spine and neck
i see the canyon breezes and smell
the waters rushing below
among the pinion
pines

#299. earth and swan

June 20, 2010

for myself as papa
without my kids again
midfathers day laughing
with lover wife playing
tug of war with the dog
i still know the truth
of the experience heart
love and time gave us
my children and will
wait as long as i can
as you need

#294. for the petrified

June 15, 2010

pressured by time flowing
not melting forward or by
growing degrees
all in a deliberate rush
towards meaning satisfying
the pain that the beauty
of the dharma reveals
in joyous futility
burning

#286. walk back

June 7, 2010

razor life never changes
fear on the edge of shadows
behind the concrete barriers
under the ramp of brooklyn
bridge a small fire across time
gathers several spirit shapes
flickering made large across time
the bottom never changes

#282. rachael

June 3, 2010

the pure water
sparkled less than you did
giggling at two minutes
an old soul teaching me
about the sun through the flecks
of dust on a morning
alive with gold
a tall summer tree rustling
in your waking breaths
is the moment of gift
which is all the fire
that i have of you
daughter

there comes a time when
you know and then its
well known love
can i live with you
always in time transporting
now it seems calm
when it stretches grabs moves
from this time to then time
flexes waves over
reaches peaks valleys
never seen in time before
all time ensphered disintegrates joins
BANG

appletree
blood
zephyr
spark
loam

trees entwined
apart and
sea silver
in the fire of the moon
and the stars
and the sun
quietly sleeping below
mountains beckoning clearly
through the air

this is the home
we have created and found
created and bound

alone is no longer lonely

#270. love inhabits

May 22, 2010

love inhabits me
the ghosted peals
of bells that have rung
yesterday and again
tomorrow they will ring
that i might recognize
the silence between us
as the living for each breath
together that is our fire
