HAPPY NEW YEAR, 2017!   3 comments

On this New Year’s day, taking notes from D. H. Lawrence.’s Fantasia of the Unconscious, I penned the following, with apologies to Lawrence:

New Year’s day,
Sunday at home

a light winter rain
refreshes the desert,

I ponder my mind,
psyche and soul,

whose trinity form
the powers of my

whole being
together speaking

in one voice, which
I can never deny.

When at last,
in all life’s storms,

my whole self speaks,
only to pause,

collecting itself into
pure silence and isolation –

perhaps after much pain,
the mind suspends

its knowledge, and waits.
It is then the psyche becomes

strangely still,
and after a pause,

there is a fresh beginning,
a new life adjustment

pushing a deep sigh
through every pore

fading into a mist —
a sense of mystery.

The two hardest tests on the spiritual road
are the patience to wait for the right moment
and the courage not to be disappointed
with what we encounter.

San Antonio, April 2009Blue Door — Image by kenne

Keeping still
is walking down over the dunes
when all my lips
would be boats
carried into port
by your body
beneath the benediction
of a day trembling
orange dahlias
above the pavement
in the alleys
in the doorways
in all the windows
where someone
is following the rhythm
yellow dark
dark yellow
of the birds
toward the river.

— Lucha Corpi

I Paint What I See   Leave a comment

The meaning of a word

— to me — is not as exact

as the meaning of a color.

Colors and shapes

make a more definite

statement than words.

Fall Leaves At Peace   Leave a comment

Fall leaves at peace
still
holding raindrops
coming in the darkness

of night, understated,
still,
I wish the drops 

would soak the leaves

as if to give them life
again,
connecting the ground,
breathing.

“I do not know if the desert can be loved,
but it is in the desert that my treasure lies hidden.”
