order in life

a house with the bottom up
thrown clothes, clutter, books everywhere
manuscripts, invoices
pencils, drawing boards

no guests
no holiday tables
just a shadow of last year

I went out and watched the fireworks
the most beautiful fireworks in my life
they were ordered in writing games
new games
in dazzling...Read More

I have always wanted to see the world 
From the bottom up
So when I die 
don't cry
Throw my ashes down the toilet
And flush with vigor
while shaking the handle
here is  looking up at you

Give Me Something Round
Give me something round
Edges to life should be circular
Beware of the elliptic mystery
Rotate your marbles frequently

Give me something spherical
Two hemispheres in harmony
Held together with super glue
Solid to the core and spiraling

Give me something not Michigan
(Round objects are illegal in Michigan)
Balls...Read More

I am utterly useless and without hope.
And no one will ever tell me that
I should never quit trying. 
And now I finally understand that 
This is what fate has in store for me,
I am worth nothing at all.
And it would...Read More

Early Summer

Birds awake with the dawn
Their twitters break the last defending line of spring

Like a vegetable soup that I can bottom up at once

The mist and rain no longer tangle with my eyes
The deepest blue in the...Read More

 God is Lord
 With Him I can do it all
 Sees me thru everything and each time I fall
 With God by side there's none I should fear
 He always lends ear
 God loves me

I am very ugly
so don't try to convince me that
I am a very beautiful person
because at the end of the day

Brain scans

A brain scan is viewed
and seems to record
the busyness of a brain
most independent and active.. 
A brain viewed as  creator
with the scan recording the 
colors and this
electrical flesh originates our
minds and our lives..

However..we are invited to pause

My Statue
The perfect form,
Built from a seed,
From bottom to top,
Not any other built like me,
Converted into a small mind,
Taught to be obedient,
Can't seem to live life to the fullest,
Nothing letting you become free,
A statue still,
Solid and tight,
Build your foundation,
Before you stand...Read More

Once within recycling time
lived brother Paraclete

Written across each bicameral heart and mindbody
these two live on
as controlling Yang
with nurturing Yin,
somewhat before their Western cousins,
Paraclete, God's Justice Advocate
as Sophia,
Wisdom's Holonic CoOperative Spirit.

Polypathic conversation with David Holmgren:

Today it is common to hear the suggestion
[cooperative] education and [therapeutic] training
is the [mindful] key to allowing people to contribute
to a more sustainable [ecopolitical] future.

Health issues and ecopolitical promise speak in dialectal fractals:

Mental Chess Is Like Thinking About Thinking
Make us pathetic
We were numb from the bottom up
Imbedded to start habits we can't finish
What I mean is
Wrecked from substance
One more time would've done it
Lungs of smoke 
Intentions are a joke.
Choke! or fall apart like a yolk.

Sometimes, as individuals
and as a learning species,
we jump too quickly,
enthusiastically on empathic trust feelings of familiarity,
forgetting these may include both health with pathological tensions
residing within this intuitive moment,
this feeling of happiness toward potential true and good futures
yet I really do...Read More

Laying in fingers across the horizon
Waiting for an unsuspecting tree or rock to drift up
Within reach
Tranquil, imitating sleep
Believing in nothing but itself
It curls around all ascending matter
Leaf, twig, trunk, 
Rock, stone, pebble
And bits of earth
Moisture trickles and joins the haze

Sadness and Happiness
This poem is really written by the student VK/11 yrs. Read top down and then bottom up

Death destruction and despair
Families and friends
Vanquish hope
Say I love you
Be sad
Do not
Be free
Hopelessness and poverty
Take over
The world
You will rule
Dissipate the word

Never lost, love..within my heart's reverie.
