Swinging From The Banana Tree

Snake oil salesmen...come in many garbs

Saying "I am awake"

Many teachers say that... and believes it

And the seekers around them buy into the belief... hook line and sinker



In The Sparkle Of Your Own Tears

There's no right or wrong way to think... or be...

It's a radical way of living

This shift in perception



Floodlit Billboards In The Sky

And stars and grains of sand

Flowers and scuttling crabs

The tears spilling from coffee cups

The smiles, jumping off roller coaster rides

Presence of love felt acutely in the heart



Wonder... Appearing... Disappearing

It's wonderful to be alive
To be this life

And yet every moment
Right this moment

The readiness to lay down and die

Every breath
Living and dying unto itself



In Less Than A Moment

And there was no inside
Nor outside left

Love's fragrance swirled everywhere

And air was breath
And breath became air

A lover's kiss
A beloved's embrace

Without the separation



A Singing Dancing Love Light

Not everyone resonates with what I speak

And want to debate this intellectually

All attempts at sounding obtusely clever

Kinda

An armchair discussion



Oh... Shiuli... Shiuli

And she a voice come over the air waves
Of the hurting and the heart break

And a world that made no sense

As the world unravels
All the ideas you held you held of yourself



This Yearning

I never looked for a picture of you
The words came forth
And you came alive through them

An image as good as any likeness of a picture
Ripples on the waters
Of a flowing stream



Clever Little Bunny

Objectification and unicity have bled into each other and I can't tell the difference anymore

Words lose their sway

And then I like a line or two or four here and there and I go ooohhh



Her Gossamer Gown... This Tapestry

MAI's picture



She sat on a garden chair

For hours on end

Doing nothing

Delighting in the gold fish cavorting in the pond

An eagle flew overhead

A parrot streaked across
