Six Poems Of Emptiness

HALLOWED HOLLY

Once termites bored
a hole in the holly
on the hill
Now a gnawing holocaust
of emptiness
where once Hollywood
was held…
but as time passed
it was known
that Holly was hallowed
because Holly was hollowed.
Soon a beehive came
graced with honey
and the magic of the
queen to
the hallowed hollowed
holy
Holly on the hill.

*

(to Holly Hazard, protector of
voiceless animals)

IF YOU DON’T BUILD IT

If you don’t build it
they will come
If you let it go
it will grow

BUTTERNUT AND BUTTERCUP

Held the dew
the concave buttercup
better than
the convex butternut

as listening ears
have healing
in their cups

with what
chalice’d joy
does the buttercup
hold
the liquid sunup

(to Mr and Mrs Jeff Miller,
to L Yost and her partner
and to others)

EMPTYING

Love makes a manger
of a desirefilled heart.
Ocean rocks are turned
to rookeries by the sea
Eyelets by Japanese beetles
sewn beautify the rose
Woodpeckers softly drill
caves in the tree.
Holey, holy and whole
the new hallowed hills.

ALCHEMY OF ATTRACTION

The criminal desperate for money mused
over counterfeiting, forgery,
teleportation, alchemy, treasure hunting,
perusing bank blueprints
.. not leaving fingerprints

Another prayed, did acts of love, gave things away, and
planted fruit trees, free food machines.. these bore the fruit
of needs fulfilled.

A third did nothing, knowing that God his heart indweller,
knew his needs before he himself did.

BAMBOO BAMBINOS

Helen Blavatsky described
her trip to India..
Sixty foot high stands of bamboo
were beetle bored..
and in the wind
these trunk flutes
sang the sweetest symphony

Bamboo have bambinos
effortlessly…
everywhere  are the
new spears of life
