Between Men and Women

I continue to search for the magic,

the magic relationship combination —

luck, romance, and harmony.

There are many formulas,

but they all seem rather glib:

work as a team, compromise,

‘doing your own thing,’

living separate lives under one roof,

all part of an invisible code.

Still, poets write of past muses

and fantasize future romantic

relationships in the games people play.

“There is a Chinese curse which says, “May you live in interesting times.” Like it or not, we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also the most creative of any time in the history of mankind. And anyone here will ultimately be judged — will ultimately judge himself — on the effort he has contributed to building a new world society and the extent to which his ideals and goals have shaped that effort.”

— Robert F. Kennedy, June 6, 1966

Trying to Understand Why   Leave a comment

Why! 

Trying to understand why
Only to be shattered
By the emotions of others.

Still, I will stubbornly
Continue seeking answers
By connecting dots —

Dots that blow in the wind
Like the tumbleweeds
No longer grounded

Fueling fires of fear
Widening the desert
Of intellectual ignorance.

is constantly being transformed
Because the Earth is alive and has a Soul.

I Pray To The Birds   1 comment

“I pray to the birds because
 they remind me of what I love
rather 
than what I fear.
And at the end of my prayers,
they teach me how to listen.” 
― Terry Tempest Williams

Albert Einstein believed we suffer from an “optical delusion”
which separated us from the rest of creation. His solution?

“Widen our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
