Morning

Why do we bother with the rest of the day,
the swale of the afternoon,
the sudden dip into evening,

then  night with his notorious perfumes,
many-pointed stars?

This is the best—
throwing off the light covers,
feet on the cold floor,
and buzzing around the house on expresso—

maybe a slash of water on the face.

— from Morning by Billy Collins

Sunrise On The West Coast of Mexico   Leave a comment

Sunrise On The West Coast of Mexico (01/07/07) — Image by kenne

A bay off the Mexican west coast
the rising sun glistens around a
half sunken military boat near
a sleepy coastal village covered
with a yellow-to-gray haze.

If it is true, everything is good
fades away with time,
it is also true that rust awaits
metal resting in saltwater.

A cruise ship sat at the
entrance to the bay —
gone the sailors and hookers
up the dusty road to Tijuana —
only to be buried standing,
buried facing west.

An Autumn Sunrise On Mt. Lemmon   Leave a comment

An Autumn Sunrise On Mt. Lemmon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Signs of autumn echoes
Throughout the forest
As time present becomes
Time past in a moment.
As the aspen leaves
Dance in the breeze
There is only the dance —
Neither moment from
Nor towards.

Saguaro stands tall

Stately as the sun rises

Desert royalty.

Words at Daybreak

Before beginning in earnest,
without meanings to identify them,
they emerge like figures behind a gray curtain.
The dark flock on the foggy horizon
defers arrival. Engaged in some play
of its own making, it circles and drifts.
Still, fricative, almost particulate songs
filter down, silting along the gray shore.
They summon the ear to something, to something.

Meditation means keeping one mind.
You must understand – what is life?
What is death? If you keep one mind,
there is no life, no death.
Then if you die tomorrow, no problem;
if you die in five minutes, no problem.

— Seung Sahn

“The passage into mystery always refreshes. If, when we work, we can look once a day upon the face of mystery,
then our labor satisfies. We are lightened when our gifts rise from pools we cannot fathom. Then we know they are
not a solitary egotism and they are inexhaustible.”

What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.

A haunting morning
Transforms a normal
And simple aesthetic
Trying for unsettling
Depths of darkness.
