Existence In A Nutshell

I’m sure
the oak is

Behind the lullaby
celestial harmonic
breathy reeds beyond
the expanse there
billows life in bubbles
the multiverse born
of placenta from nil
inverts as blown glass
to become life like diamonds
on black velvet and God’s
throaty voice is every tone
and angels are arpeggios

Softer Parade

chagall backdrop

A shot in the arm
of hope and love
triangulated

A pat on the back
of consolation
and soft asides

A kiss on the lips
of grace embellished
small, soft daubs

The Onion

I find
when I cut it
at arm’s length
it doesn’t
make me cry.

Fleetly Moves The Spirit

chagall backdrop

The bells of the new day joyously ring -
correction, triumphantly rang! – while
cold winds swept the whitest clouds
to the threshold of endless azure
and they and I in echelon bank hard
in a yaw and vertical dive till
ceremoniously, in quiet accord we right
to the ringing bells

Till That Time

When Mercury and Venus are devoured
by the wake of collapsed stars
we will emerge again as purest
love

Rapt

Under pale blue sky
I sense the holy
in gilded leaf,
stained glass amber,
muted green cool shade,
amazed to find
a cathedral even here

Gaze 3 A.M.

chagall backdrop

How odd the stars that burn so hot
can wink, demure, so cold

I am warmed by the faces
of so many moons

More real than the lights
of jet planes

These nights I find
I slow down seeking free fall

Up, so I float
without need to ever

look down

Focus

Maybe it’s not the words we lack
but the keenest sense of what to feel.

Or

chagall backdrop

When I’m small I am the speck
looking out at angels

On the other hand it’s Me
peering down
