The Sun
I won't remove the yellow from the sun
when yellow's used for harming everyone

I won't take anger from the some
when all that anger's there to numb

I won't be angry for the one
who comes at me for peace and drum

I won't say...Read More

I looked for the hero in the story
 it appeared, there might be none.
All the rhetoric of history in its glory
 slipped to dark shadows, tumultuously spun.

I read the introduction ushering steps that entwined
 of a mystery still hidden somewhere...Read More

Which waits for God each day

Come near it and make it twinkle with joy

interred
Literal is not,
the fake climb is aunt,

Where all the pain I've known for her
is why I can't go on
As all the hate she's shown to...Read More

Heard in voices of singers;
Seen in face;
Race and place;
And in fingers of bell ringers.

Premium Member My History of Mystery
We are ecological science
and con-science
and unconsciousness.

We are story
and egological storyteller
and unknown
unheard
unseen.

Earth's humane act
and actor
and theologically transcendent stasis.

The dance
and dancer
and deaf
and frozen

The song
and singer
and silent
muted
anticipation
and anxiety.

The play
and player
and absent
uninvited
worker.

The thought
and thinker
and feeler
and numb.

The garden
and gardener
and consumer
and starving.

The Earth
and EarthTribe
and Ego
and Interdependent

The night would have no stars

to produce yet a simple flint to spark
and swoon pulsating hearts their claim
steads a blank page none commit to mind
