Poet's Notes

Experience seems to reinforce: “what we resist persists.” Death is such an unknown. We all want to dream as if we’ll live forever, but perhaps we should all aspire to live as if we’ll die today...and still hold to those dreams as our little secret.

Finding Home
                by Odin Roark

So temporary
Earth's tabled destiny

The shifting tectonics of time
only know continuous evolution
rendering today's attachment
but tomorrow's adjusted divide

Most sense not
when disturbance begins
when spilled milk begins to teach
when failure signals wisdom

From cradle to grave
conditioning grows unabated
advancing through
finally granting
one's very own onion skin
reality's tenuous admission ticket

Perfect job
Do this
Lose that

Perfect relationship

Unexpected seismic shifts erupt
innate calculations run asunder
passion's molten flow
fuses heart and mind

Eternity awaits
shackles melt free
unhappiness exits
flames cleanse bodily disease

Atop etheric wonder
smoke and cloud
transport ecstasy's confetti

seeking the first breeze to nowhere
the embracing calm of everywhere


Existence sans time
day and night merge
with all that

Welcome home
