A Passing Butterfly   Leave a comment

I gently rub
my beard
in deep thought
distracted only
by an occasional
butterfly
passing by
in the middle
of the day.

I savor
the moment
rubbing 
white whiskers
navigating through
mind droppings
reaching out
to catch 
a falling star.

The desert sky
bluer than the 
bluest of blues
a backdrop to
sun-scalded red
creating visuals
turning to words
honed by the soul
itching to be scratched.

American politics causes me to look away,
to look away to nature for other images 
to cradle my shaken emotions, 
images that help awaken the shared
suffering of broken hearts, which have 
become symbolic victims of our times as we
seek the rapture associated with being alive.

A Message Through My Fingers   1 comment

I look to you
keyboard
to say something to me
to bring me some intuitive wisdom
to console me, construct me,
converge me
to send me a message through my fingers
and your page
to reveal something
I wish I already knew.

Indigo Blue

I paint you

pixie green

in a background

of indigo blue

as you kiss

the last red

and yellow

bird of paradise

blossoms

as the contrasting

colors

of late summer

soothe the soul.

What has to be given up is not the I,
as most mystics suppose:
this I is indispensable for any relationship,
including the highest,
which always presupposes an I and You.
