The goal of life is to make your heartbeat
match the beat of the universe,

to match your nature with Nature.

A mushroom
alone 
burrows out 
of the ground
pine nettles
hang from its
head
entering a new
world
out of darkness
into the
light of day.

“When you call me close to tell me
your body is not beautiful
I want to summon the eyes
and hidden mouths
of stone and light and water
to testify against you.”

— Leonard Cohen

Cactus Blossom-1496 art blogTanuri Ridge Beauty — Computer Art by kenne

A cactus blossom 
greeting
early morning
walkers
as the sun rises
casting
long shadows
across
the Catalinas,
opening
not as a rose
lasting
for days
providing only
one brief moment
passing by
I share the
moment.

Wild women and

wildflowers

turned on

by red and blue

each not for

plucking

only looking —

do not fear

roaming eyes.

Man is his own star, and the soul that can
Render an honest and a perfect man
Commands all light, all influence, all fate;
Nothing to him falls early, or too late.
Our acts our angels are, or good or ill,
Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.

— from The Honest Man’s Fortune by John Fletcher

The Night Serpent

If mushrooms were to
grow backward,
what would the
wee people sit on
under the stars to
watch nude maidens
dance to the night serpent’s
pulsating drum beat?
