Two for One


 Somehow get a sample of that light.

Maybe hold on tight while a hotair balloon hauls you and a bucket up,--- up up.

Don't wait until it cools, pour it all over that last remaining shadow you've seen in your dreams.


Without the somethings,
the stumbles and the miss-steps,
this life would be easier,
but we would fall asleep from boredom
instead of blissful exhaustion.

As you steel yourself enough

to head out in this deep unknown,


this unknown is correctly dressed;

it's those sunny days

(just as mysterious)

which are in masquerade.

Try to believe two things:

that today is like all other days
 and it's not like any other.

Right both times and at once.

Always Problems

The weekend substitute Sun is late.
She got caught on the throughway between this Universe
and the one where she works her dayjob
as one of the nine flaming moons
around the planet, Goethe.

She called

And now....the weather

Someone can love someone else more than they'll ever know? No.

That someone else, if it's me, if it's you, knows.

But that's because...,

Oh, wait...


It's supposed to rain today after midnight.

Onward to (B)

Select any point (A) on the rising angle of your existence.
Follow the upward line with your eyes and breath.
Don't rush.

You've time.

It reaches to infinity.

I put yesterday on the counter
right next to where I hang my house keys.
It was right there where I left it an hour later,
holding down the grocery list
and the reminder about the birthday cards,
then I went to the window
to see if it was raining
and when I turned around,
it was today.

The sky, with silver highlights in her hair, sips her tea and waits for the party that is today to begin.
 Pass the sugar.

What we keep in mind

The mind must remember that there is a bottle of capers in the fridge,
 that Tuesday next our appointment is now at 9:20,
that the sun is really out there warming us up.

The heart has the harder task:
to remember that love is here,
sometimes just as hard to see as the capers or the sun,
but here.

The child-mind keeps asking:

-Is it yet?

-Are we almost?

-Do we do?

-May we may?

"Yes" I say softly,"Nearly"

But, as with most grown-ups,
I have no idea, just hope.

Horizon Ships

I swam out to them. It was darker and foggier onboard.

"Of course," they said, "You crossed the water, you didn't leave the planet."

Off we sailed, happily heading for the edges.

.... So.

There will
almost always
be something
in a bright moment.
Take note of
how it makes
 the bright spot

Line, Please?

as we witness
this kaleidoscoping life performance,
we are not the audience;
we are the actors.

Again, please, from the top.

Pinch Hitter

You wanted a star to wish on -
only got this big grey cloud.
make the wish
on the big grey cloud.

The wish will never know the difference.

Touch your pockets;
you have what you need.

Touch your head;
you are of one mind today.

Touch your heart;
send out the simple signal, here there is love.

Touch the door handle; go.

As it seems

If this universe astounds you,
consider the ten thousand others universes
just above your left little finger tip.
