THE WINGS OF SPIRIT
Fixed the bottle of scent…
Unbound her fragrance’ ascent.
Branched the nightingale
but her song to all ascends.
Moored tonight is the boat
but morn brings unfurled sails.
Earthbound the bodhisattva
but his aura spreads everywhere.
Amherst-circumscribed
was Emily’s pen
but her poems to
distant lands took flight.
93 million miles away the sun
but his love left home
to give us light.

*

Footnote: Bodhisattva..
1 a soul who chooses to come back
to earth to help others rather than
to be liberated
2  Emily is Emily Dickinson

3  dedicated to my 18 year old kitty Babaji

   who left for God today

EVE RISINGThe sun sets..

.into the blue sky
.. pink slowly spills
.. then purple
the celestial bowl fills

Eve rising..
is everywhere clothed
in violet
twilight robes

DEAD STRUCTURE YIELDS
The hardened
crust of mother earth

green spring

spears do rupture.

Invincible love
breaks through
the heart,
melting the past’s
calcified structure.

MARS SUBMERGED

Waters rise in

a statuary garden

slowly submerging

the statue of Mars.

 

Love rises in the

heart erasing

errors of

the past.

Note:  The statue is of Buddha, not Mars….I know… Buddha creator of peace not Mars creator of war… giving an alternative meaning:  the waters of love are omnipotent

DIVINE ALCHEMY

Through the divine

alchemy of time,

as the dung pile

becomes the rose,

our anger is turned

into laughter

and even more sublime…..

into love

INVISIBLE

Some atheists believe

only in the tangible or visible

The Divine, the Invincible

is for the most part invisible.

THE WIND IN THE FIR

A 21 cone salute

dropped the fir tree in the breeze
affirming not endless war
but a resurrected peace.

HAWKWEED

The cheerful hawkweed
a true plant master…
.. no matter how often
mower-beheaded
along with daisies and asters….
grows taller after
each disaster.
