Fear only looks large from a distance.

Run right at it laughing.

Step on its tiny self as you zoom by.

Fogged In

As soon as you admit
                  you are in the midst of mists,
                                            the fog begins lifting
                                                                                unveils your misplaced mind.

Start the Wave

Smile at some strangers.

             Now and then, wave at tourist buses.

Oh, what stories
they will tell
                         when they get home.

Promise today to be the light; not bright enough to illuminate, but a lamp to guide the way.

"I don't know." is the ticket of Admission.

"I'll find out."is the ride.

Beg to Differ

The what?

Stand on a 3-legged stool and say
which one is its greatest leg.

Go Ahead

Go ahead.
Be swept away.
Go careering off your well kept tracks
and boggle your perfect perfect eyes.
We'll save your place.

Going in circles isn't all bad.

You know you've been here before

which way not to go.

you sleep
with one eye open
you will start
that way.

Surrounding yourself with people
 of limitless dreams and ideas
 is your only hope
 of having
 limitless dreams and ideas.

Stretch out your fingers and trace the letters of each name lost across the sky.

Write small.

There are so many.

Ever Here

Everywhere is all the nears, theres and fars.

Ever here is how long we have left to find its center.

Today is
one of those big fat beach books you love so much;
 so eat,
 bite, chew each word,
 dogear the good parts
so you can tell us later.

High Wire

O ho,
they've practiced until they know they cannot fall,
then act as if they are falling.

What is my practice?

O ho.

Wednesday, September 07, 2011


you see a curtain
as rising or falling
depends on
you are hearing
 an overture
 an ovation.

just when you need it,
life strips itself bare.

                   You can see its skin.
                                                 See if you can see its bones.

No ship is safe in a stormy harbor.
Sail out, out against the blows!
Yell "Jibe hard! Ho!"and dance!
Dance dance dance the foamfilled decks!

Yesterday I thought today would be tomorrow,
 but the speed of light seems in constant motion;
time is either racing ahead

or sitting at its desk drinking coffee.

I remain still as I shoot across the sky.

Shucks, who are we who dare think the universe moves when we say "Turn."?

Yet... yet, be sure,
there are a billion sleeping stars who dream of you
 and wonder why you have not written.

something borrowed

Summer nudged September, asked her to borrow a bit of her blue and purple blanket.

"It's odd" she said, "I thought I felt a chill."

"Shhh., snuggle up with me awhile." September sighed,
looking over her shoulder at the still sleeping October.
"You'll be warm again in no time."

Bulletin Board

All memories are stuck to the bulletinboard of your mind.

Start now.

Some may require pliers.
