How...

How do the animals sense leaving?
How is it you've become this beautiful young man?
How does the wind carry the voice?
How is it deep joy arrives?

dropping down...



dropping down into the groundless
she knew a simpler serenity.

Memories 1

many layered/multidimensional/dynamic
emptiness brings full possibility
nothing is static.

Memories

You share your story,
memories surface and I am healed.

Katya Wanted to Teach...

Katya wanted to teach everyone to fly;
to feel the freedom she knew. One day....



She Wasn't Minding....

She wasn't minding her brokenness; she began to recognize it as her source of strength.~

"What's Your Location?"




Your face
sunbaked,
home is outside.
Cardboard in hands, "anything will help."
You walk the cement plank;
stagger/waiver/balance top with bottom-beat up tennis shoe brushes the curb, touches the street.
Did anyone notice, does anyone care....to even look?
You adjust, get back on your plank, assume the position.
You're a soldier fighting for a meal/dollar/drink/dignity/peace.
Do you know what peace feels like?
Red light.
Steady now, turn, I look at you. You're taking a deep breath after the catch, you let out an exagerated
exhale.
At that expression I think, "You're not safe/so many cars/so unsteady/so hungry/hot/
what else?
I don't want you to die, not here, not today.
I want you to feel embraced by the world, accepted/unconditiol love.
Full stomach/full heart.
911/"What's your location?"/man/staggering/I want him to live.

Lucy and I Go Hiking


Lucy and I had ourselves a little adventure up in the mountains today. We've been in the house a little more than usual these days and I thought the mountains and fresh air would rejuvinate us.






After a false start and having to go back to the house for Lucy's leash...finally we're out on the path and Lucy's happy (and so am I!)


"I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes."
