I have realized that the past and future are real illusions,
that they exist in the present, which is what there is and all there is.

So many life stages

Still, we group only a few

Let me count the ways.

always in between   2 comments

home is where I am
home is not where I am
always in between

I am an island of consciousness
I have a cosmic consciousness
always in between

life is now
death is now
always in between

existence is being
existence is becoming
always in between

I am free
I am in prison
always in between

everything is implicit
everything is explicit
always in between

nature is an artifact
nature is art
always in between

nature must be trusted
nature must be mastered
always in between

humans are good
humans are bad
always in between

a sense of law
a sense of equity
always in between

there is a natural order
there is no order in nature
always in between

life has purpose
life is purposeless
always in between

Bearded Penstemon Wildflower and You   1 comment

You

missing, bone
hard the trees
seep their white
bloom through stem,
tendril, leaf.

And your beard:
light curling
through the sweet,
dark hair, all
blossoming.

How far do
these white clouds
reach, from here
to that place
you are now?

— from “Poems from Paradise” by Windy Barker
