The Breath

Breathe
one, then another
sometimes aware
other times not
yet it continues
until it stops

Heart beat
one, then another
counting our lives
moment by moment
until it stops

Until we are no more
as if we ever were
in the first place

God In A Box

Can’t put God in a box
on a cross, in the sea
for God is everything
even you and me

Hold on to this idea:
There is none besides He
all else is fantasy
illusions we create
to define that which
cannot be contained
in churches, temples, mosques
not the forest or the sea
even heaven spread
across eternity

Innocence Betrayed

He who harms an animal
has sold his soul to the dead
innocence betrayed
deserves no mercy

New Puppy Signs

Chewed up shoes
Puddles on the floor
New puppy escapes

Sweet Laughter

A golden prize
A friend who makes you laugh
Sweet laughter feeds love

Dark Places

Avoid places of darkness
Shine the light for those who are ready
Turn away from lurking shadows
Avoid places of darkness
The pull of evil is strong
Do not taste the apple
Avoid places of darkness
Shine the light for those who are ready

Entering

I project myself into a leaf
walk its verdant cells
swim its veins
smell its spring fragrance

I choose not be become
the leaf though shape-shifting
is a possibility
but rather today
I am an explorer of passageways
of glorious greens
masked sunbeams
cast shades of green lights and shadows
and I find God
as always the Matrix of All.
