Premium Member Words Between

You will say something mundane
then a sudden potency
will scratch my skin.

I mention an ordinary thing
and you show me where 
my words
are fine silk or a brief abrasion.

An invisible tissue
connects a common language
into questing passions.

I imagine the tympanic bones
of our ears...Read More

Cerebellum's Synaptic Soiree
Lifted lightly from familiarity
Sleep's gesture caresses cells
Taken to nearby bewilderment
Where stagnancy busily dwells

Liquid lambent shooting star forms fragment
Vapid vexations vanquished in fantasy's fire
Mist masked span transcends measurement
Vision's fusion surpasses language quagmire 

Imprisoned waking cognition 
held in category's secure structure 
Dispelled...Read More

Premium Member The Climatic Collaboratory
I don't recall whose inspired idea it wasn't
to invite the math professor
into our Therapeutic Collaborative Laboratory.

I do recall when I first heard her speak
of cooperative polynomial qualities
for improving ego/eco-therapeutic communications.

She was, of course,
in the back of the room.
I noticed her...Read More

Violent refractions 
Inner beauty flayed
Mesmerising fragments 
Rainbows split and split again 
Razor sharp shards of light cutting light 
Non-conforming blades
Hues bruised and shattered 
Colours shot this way and that ;

From the magical mind comes magic refined 
Spontaneous decisions 
Cuts and...Read More

Premium Member Stark White is the Darkness

Thunderous thoughts roil synaptic valleys
truants - roaming imagination’s alleys
conjuring confusion’s consternation
drum rolls demanding participation

Flashes of brilliance etched upon ether
seeking light’s darkness but finding neither
rumbles of reason stumbling blindly
fleeing a fear ahead and behind me

Notions of knowledge exposed to the light

in that quiet place, faint
amongst the soft chatter,

Premium Member Narrow Paths Less Taken
A narrow way
between left-brain dominant history
in wealthy solidarity
with right-brain prominent yin-flow

Heart-touched and nature-tasted
multi-generationally tested
both/and cooperative health
with either/or competing against
creatively/uncreatively fragmenting ego-integrity potential
for win/win left here/now
with win/lose health/pathology remembering night,
tip-pointing both/and heuristic
holonic timeless fertile right
EarthSoul centered becoming
whole re-opened might.

April 7th Coffee Poems
April 6 Coffee Love Hate Affair
I love coffee 
Always have
Always will

But I have a love-hate affair
With coffee
Love it when it gets me up
Flying high in the sky

As the sun comes over
Filling with hope
And anticipation

As I conquer the day’s
Daunting tasks

Premium Member Too Late Winter
In long winters
when curious bears hibernate,

When even those few songbirds left behind
are stoically silent
at their least amorous time,

When uneven bare trees and bushes
retire into aptic
deep naked entropy,

It is sad seasonally appropriate
to barely live outside robotic,
lethargic, biotic bionic
frozenly mechanistic
and yet deeply...Read More

Premium Member UnSappy Happy Talk
I said to my son,
He said back to me,
To be honest with us,
I'm worried

We want to be happy
while bypassing disciplines of left-brain healthy
is not too right-brain cooperatively sappy.

But, after my ancient lifetime of trying
directly for prosperous happy
that may or may...Read More

Premium Member Life sometimes
Life sometimes

Has been nothing more than raging streams
cascading over the sharp edges of rocky dreams.
Surging down sculptured mountain sides so steep
where dreams splinter, reflected in troubled sleep.

Remnants of, go beyond recognition, no longer to keep

Winging It
birds of a quill, or a feather
flock together at odd times
from all four corners
of thinking creative
to jostle with keyboards,
pens and sharp pencils
fingers fidget, tap-tapping
frantic scribbling down
in notebook's lined pages
screens and keyboards
prepare for posting 
all that flutters in skulls
staring blank-eyed into...Read More

Premium Member MUSE BOMB
For years, I’ve thought “I’ll write a book” -
I think I could - if all it took
was writing it. But books, I fear
Require that one inspired idea
To fire the fuse and set alight
The dreams that fuel a blazing write.

So lacking...Read More

Know Thyself
Know thyself
Confusing – maybe?
The reality - we are all we’ll ever have
Personal awareness is of utmost importance - indeed

Evolutionary dialectical battle
Vociferous the subconscious mind 
Perpetual synaptic reactions
Unexamined – troubled - unkind

Awareness precedes Transformation
Transformation – Holy Grail - life’s key
Rise above...Read More

Premium Member Passionate Attachments
Wisdom of ancient Eastern teachers
and Western mystics
ubiquitously observes

We both are and do our healthy best
while actively reducing attachments
to illusory fearful Futures
of Loser death and dying,

And grow detachment from suffering
of angry Loser pasts.

Which, to this Taoist,
sounds like a long negative Yangish...Read More

A Meditation Poem On Mind
To meditate in quiet space
The mind's complexity,
Can stimulate synaptic pace
Beyond stability.

Each thought creates another thought
Unto infinity.
So resolutions which are sought
Cannot have certainty.

No theory should be finalized
As science can attest.
What Newton's theory optimized
Young Einstein put to rest.

So as we ponder is...Read More

What is your earliest memory
of sacred birdsong voices?

How is this memory
the same and different than
your internal intimate Sacred EarthMother's Song?

Of sacred gospel and secular gossip

more discerning and hesitant strains,
and LoseLose siren screeches,

Rapacious Itch
Rapacious  Itch 

It felt things coming, 
The undeniable bottom feeder reality, 
Where thought had no credulity, 
Where irrational emoting ruled, 
Void of mind’s prep, 
Blind of light’s revealing purpose. 

Such remained 
This well-rehearsed and produced 
Pulp life infestation.

Nightmares Shall Follow Us

Buried deep within the clustered-cobwebs of the mind,
Lurketh certain synaptic images of things ugly and evil.

These mental clustered-cobwebs do accumulate over time,
And with them their synaptic images grow in proportion.

These images contain reflections of daily life experiences,

Premium Member If We Were Gods
If we were Earth gods and goddesses,
with powers to create anything we prefer
for our healthiest wealth attainment,
would we settle for living in a swamp
created by our own collective lack of mindfulness
about how to play longer-term WinWin?

Premium Member Listening for God
Among the Potawatomi
they speak of Yawe,
dynamic being,
perpetuating interdependence
within this whole Earth system.

Among the Israelites
they only reverently spoke of YHWH,
again integrity
continuous historic interdependent perpetuation
within and between languaged fissures
of empty non-being.

Among the Taoists
again dynamic integrity
dipolar co-arising Yang embedded strong relationships,
