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

Yellow Flower — Creating a New Consciousness   Leave a comment

Balboa Park Flowers-1973 blog“Yellow Flower in Circles and Squares” — Image by kenne

Sometimes to appreciate beauty
it must be taken out of context
to capture a new perspective
based on my love of nature, sex
and life in a new consciousness
for the flower is neither
a subject nor an object
apart from being a flower.

camera pointed
a squirrel staring at me
I stare back at him
      what is he doing up there
            what I'm I doing down here

A Cold Mountain Poem   Leave a comment

One of my favorite books of poetry is Riprap and the Cold Mountain Poems, by Gary Snyder. 

The book includes Snyder’s translations of Han-shan’s Cold Mountain Poems. Han-shan was both a man and a mountain, a mountain madman in an old line of ragged hermits. He lived at a place called Cold Mountain, a poor poet having a crazy character. He wrote poems that were rough and fresh, and when he wrote about Cold Mountain, he means himself, his home, his state of mind.
