Loving Kindness

 

Searching eyes, open to golden ripples

Ears listening, fur glistening

Tasting sunrise blue,

Traveling lake water,

Playing the soul's music

Bowing to sunlight

Conifer seeds within reach

One pointed focus

Elixir of emptiness

Love looks many ways

as it dives ever deeper

and comes up refreshed

Veins mark the travel

raindrops pause for a moment

cobwebs show the path

Breath

Breath

 

Breath

If I breathe into you

and you breathe into me

we can hold our lives together with pine sap

We can feel the strength in muskrats, blue jays and Baltimore Orioles

We can pour tart cherry juice over vegan yogurt for breakfast 

We can send PhotoPoem cards to young people who are loosing their hold on this world going up in flames, disease and corruption 

We can keep washing our bodies and hair and cleaning our houses

We can keep practicing the movements of peace

We can keep going on scooter rides along the Kennebec River

and sitting in chairs way too big for vertically challenged people

We can keep making chocolate tofu pudding with black berries on top

We can rise with the sun and run in the moonlight

and be just crazy and healthy enough

to tilt the world a little bit.

Crack open the seeds

of pomegranate stories...

their juice is subtle.

The Pieta

 

 

 

The Pieta

 

The Pieta

May you feel embraced

with a love as light

as the feathers of a dove.

May your tears of crucifixion

be washed out to sea

and transformed into waves

of courage.

Scarlet's Flight

 

 

Scarlet's Flight

Scarlet's Flight

 

Onyx black eyes

fired with purpose,

knobby claws

tucked under

for flight,

Tanager's wings

embracing the light & the dark.

Hidden and Revealed

 

Hidden and Revealed

Hidden and Revealed

The fragrance of belonging

of being hidden

   of being revealed

the black mask

   illuminating soul
