Somewhere in time

Dreamlit tree

Kindness held
the hand of love
Feeling
Far from home
Wandered
The way
Of the heart
and knew
Its time
and place
had come

As wind
through palms
on tropic shores
Or windswept icy
crystal gales
Thinking made from
long before
The sun rose
in our eyes

In lessons life
will fill our days
In nights
here aching
tears might rain
To let us know
The living proof
Brought to light
Where love
Has been set free

There is
no choice
We cannot make
Nor any lost
in Time
Each a blessing
Stills the heart
As truth
within her eyes

I wonder

Staring-at-blue-sky-1280x1024

We look across the face of the planet – our Mother Earth – and wonder why we are here doing what we do, and if it has any meaning whatsoever. Or at least we should be. For too long there has been little doubt about the world, hearth, home, family, country, God … we are taught it is all covered, all that needs to be done is to live a good life, take as long as possible to die, and we are assured of eternal life. Period …
In Zen there is a saying “As children we are taught one and one makes two. We learn to be false. One and one makes one”
Let me try to explain –

I dream
and colors come
to sleeping eyes
bewildered
at the sight
as answers unfold
and waking
set like
the sun

brave souls stood
before the dawn
on a high cliff
quaking
at the thought
of living
stepped toward
the abyss
and became

all they willed
wishes made real
dying to know
of the life
the breath
of believing
the shadow
is cast
to the light

time is
the motion
experience
the movement
consciousness
perspective
nature
in sense
is alive
