DOWN ON THE BAYOU
The night grows darker,
the fog moves in
turning the full moon
into a yellow haze.
Gas pumps on empty
next to the old pickup,
an old man pisses in
the corner shadows
like nobody was around,
he didn’t care because
nobody really cares
down on the bayou.

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

I exist in thought and action,
continually interpreting each
not knowing myself once and for all,
never being present once and for all.
I exist in mind and body,
continually maintaining each
not by what I know, but
by what I don’t know.
I exist to establish connections
between the spiritual and material
sinking to stabilize self by
staying connected to nature;
knowing that the world is always
different for each individual,
as it is for my needs, values
and expectations as they evolve.
I exist to understand my being
to think and feel differently by
learning from the poets,
reading poetry every day.
Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
— Oscar Wilde
Raven In the Snow — Computer Painting by kenne
A wet snow fell on the mountains
clinging to the pine needles
on a silent, dark night.
By dawn, the clouds were gone
leaving behind an icing
in the high country
where the sun awakens
a picture perfect landscape
and the ravens announce,
. . . “Good Morning America.”
