TV
May 19, 2017

I used to
Call it
Boob tube
Something that
Makes your
Mind
Go numb
Ironically
In a rapid fire
Succession
It was the fifth
Thing
I noticed about
You,
Cleavage.
The first
Was your
Energy
The second
Was your
Voice
The third
Your smile.
The fourth
Your eyes
But this
All happened
So fast
That
Processing
It was like
A second.

Meaning
Takes on
Different
Significance
So much was
Done
Centred
Around
The TV
Based on
Sharing
Time together
Side by side
Arm in arm
In the company
Of an angel
And family.
Laughing
Crying
Sleeping.
Conversations
Of perception
Or events
Transpired
Brought
Together

Snapped

Snapped
Sway bar
Stabilizer
First reaction
What’s going on
Trying to figure out
And understand.
Old energy patterns
Of blame
Anger
Crop up
Attempt to transcend
Transmute
And
Know
For I did
Observe
The emotional
Storm within
And surrender
Ask for help.
The light bulb came
A day later.
Going too fast
Swayed side to side
Out of control
Felt like i was
Going to tip over
And split.
At a certain threshold
Calm and steady
Sure it’s
Good to rock
The boat
And shake it up
But there is a balance
Not warp speed
Nor turtle pace
Either
Interesting
Usually in my haste
I’m in a rush to
Get nowhere
When behind the wheel
Griping about how
Slow this is
Or why is that
Like that.
This time
I didn’t care
About any of that
About being surpassed
Or even moving fast
Enough,
As much
As I wanted
To get home
Safe and sound.
What happens
When something
Breaks
And you can’t fix it?
You put it in
The hands of some One
Who can, surrender.
Worry about warranty
Coverage
Or will I have enough
Money to cover
It
Feed the fear fire
Only to find out
That no added
Expense
You’re covered
And taken care of
And better yet
There’s something
There to tide
You over until
You get your
Truck back
From repair.

Two Trees

I waited for you to
Rescue me
Role reversal
The feminine hero
Heroine
My Dope
Recently all I do is mope
Do you know what
It feels like to
Be despondent
Hopeless, Helpless
Crying out for help
And hating it simultaneously?
Closing off
Myself
Lately I have been
Semi authentic
In my heavenly
Pleas
Help
Me
Please..
Why..
Why not…
I got my Wake up
Call
No Doubt

I was afraid to rock the boat
Then it became stuck in a moat
Afraid to trigger
And lost my inner navigator
Enabling in a different way
And I’m the receiving end
This time.
I became afraid of losing you
If I was me,
You liked the newer me
Attracted
But still repelled by
Possibility
To fall back
My mitigating
Only instigating

Don’t call me in
The Fall
When all your
Summer flings
With persons or things
Leave you
Still feeling
Empty inside
Missing
SoMEthing

Hug a Tree
October 31, 2014

Update to this poem (which is also a repost)

This concept of tree is being expanded, this is the teaser to the updated version which is being crafted:

an all natural, nurturing, wisdom of the earth guide for us to breathe, a protector and partner, who takes care of us and we need to take care of them.

Where I grew up, I had the good fortune to have a creek nearby.  This valley had been a sanctuary to me for so many reasons, from timeless walks with the dog, to hours and hours of dry land conditioning for hockey, to countless journeys taken running in prep for cross country to just being nurtured by Mother Nature in contemplation.  After one of those walks, again, the inspiration was channeled from nature to paper.  This passage was written in Feb 1998.

A partner
In this dance of life
A celebration of a

Someone who is not
Afraid of having their

R.i.P

R.i.P

Today is interesting
Symbolic sight
Takes flight
Cardinal
Not sin
Bird of pray
Cloud formation
On my way
And already
There
Just flow
No need to force
The firewoman is ablaze
I know it’s coming
Not sure how
Montreal connection
1989
Matrix
All heading
In the same way
Eerie cry in the morning
Word of the day
A synchronous play
Of what?
Death
May not be
What I think
Time will tell
And trust me
I will say
More
Soon
For now
Open heart
Is an
Open mind
To receive
Deliverance

Union
November 4, 2007

I close my eyes

In the dark there is no boundary

Between you and I

There is no concept

Of time and space.

Only eternity

Inside and outside of me.

The tranquility of

Silence

Rhythmic

Rise and fall

Of my breath.

The vibration of my heart beat

Resonates from the center of my chest.

A freeing,

To come into being

A full body

Cosmic Connection

With the universe.

A passionate appreciation

For life burns.

When I open my eyes

Reflection of self.

I was partaking in a meditation back in 2000 and when I came out of it and the inspiration to this flowed through my hand to paper.
