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

To Make Soft   Leave a comment

To Make Soft . . .

Words are nothing,
feelings are everything.

Struggling to share feelings
placing petitions of desire

at the door of your heart,
shut not the door.

Love will break your heart,
scorn not what we do.

Looking for peace of mind
the truth will set us free

explaining not what is real,
too complicated to follow

knowing not our time to go
lifetime is no time at all.

A Message To All Humankind   Leave a comment

A MESSAGE TO ALL HUMANKIND

Sometimes life is unpredictable.
It dictates things that you do not want to pursue,
nor do you wish to listen to.
But no matter how we resist life,
it won’t allow itself to lay unappreciated
and devalued for a long time.

For each day we live on this planet,
each breath we took when were awake
and each silent breath when we are asleep,
life is already in its existence.

For life is within us,
it envelops us in everything that we do.
It is there, silent and yet overbearing,
when we took our own paths,
when we mold our own destiny,
and when we choose wise and unwise decisions.

Decisions that might or might not
affect the way our life will be.
For no matter what path we choose,
life is always there.

Life is the essence of life.
Life is a God-given gift bestowed upon humankind.
Life is our life.
Without life, humanity would not have existed,
I would not have existed.

Life gives us the freedom to choose,
to see things in its pure goodness,
but above all, life gives us the ability to live on this planet.
For it is life that we found each other. For it is in life that we are one.

We are not only citizens in our own countries
but we are citizens of the world.
We are here because of life,
and we are here because we have life.
Live life to its fullest form.
Thank God for bestowing upon us life. Life is life.

Seattle Skyline, Seven Years Out   Leave a comment

To bring anything into your life, imagine that it’s already there.

*****

Same with anyone who’s been flying for years and loves it
still we’re part of a world we deeply love.
Just as musicians feel about scores and melodies,
dancers about the steps and flow of music,
so we’re one with the principle of flight,
the magic of being aloft in the wind! 

— Richard Bach
