super moon

let the powers that be
be the power you are.

moon on dark water

moon on dark water

let the peace in.

start now.

let go of the fear,
well at least that one, and this one
and then this next one…

hold yourself accountable
for peace
your own personal peace
and let the new world begin.

super moon your own centripetal force
and allow the power inside
to come forth into being.

precious

right now
so preciousScreenshot 2016-06-01 07.15.19
can you feel the quality
of precious?
the sunrise
the changing leaves…
the argument your had last night?
what gifts come?
what opening is possible?
 
let the day inform that possibility
the possibility of preciousness
reclaim the day
that you might have walked so unaware
 
find a resting place,
that underlying deep dark nothingness
that informs all the brightness of this day.
 
that place of
precious.


mud puddle now

its there
all around
the buzz of the creative.
will you stop a momentIMG_5062
and let it in?
 
breathing helps
but dont even try to do that
 
just rest into being
being here
watching feeling
touching the ground being
it’s the door in.
 
no trying
no assignment
no shoulds
no ‘ really ought to’
none of that
 
sit in the messy mud puddle
of this brilliance
called now.

the river run

gratitude for the river run
the play of breath
the rise of sun, Screenshot 2016-09-05 12.00.43
the colors changing, waters flow
the seasons the changing fast and slow
all changing
again again
 
gratitude for the choices
the will the willies the wishes
gratitude
for the folly flopping frolic of it all
to make my way lightly
on these measured moments
in simple care
 
gratitude for this yes and no
to right and left
the tests and trembles
gratitude you winding river life
yes yes yes
this simple solitary ripple rising
full forced we together
gratitude.

wonder

wonder
at the tree tree1
it stands so tall
forever seemingly
so patient and strong,
but that is just its nature.
 
wonder
at the hummingbird
it’s only task to find nectar
it’s marvelous wings
it’s defiance of everything we know
this little bird
of peep and ruby throat
 
wonder at the blade of grass
one single spire to the sky
resilient and allowing
swaying in the slightest breeze
 
and wonder
wonder at you and me
we here
hands feet heart head
we breathe forth
into the only moment we have
 
full of fear and beauty
fun fluster and folly.
might we come to know
gratitude and wonder
as our best friends
along this tender trail we tread.

ease

Life goes up and down
in and outtree6
all around
that little monkey mind
flies through the trees
with the greatest of…?
 
ease
that’s the quality of all we desire
ease
that’s the ultimate destination…
ease.
 
it’s in the noticing
in the loving
in the what the heck, love it anyway-ing
 
as he flies through the air
 
allowing
noticing
laugh out loud surrendering.
 

into ease.

love is breathing us

We breathe
we breatheangelcloud
we just breathe
and then we breathe
there we go again…

pretty constant til we die.
That’s reality.

sometimes we breathe in love
and
then breathe it out.

Sometimes we circulate that breath
and feel it fill every pore.
amazed at the feeling.
we ask,
why don’t we breathe love more?

but the reality of it all is
that love is breathing us
each breath
every inch and cell.

blue

you feel fear roarIMG_7853
full and fierce and fragile
wilt and wobble
wisps and whispers
so compelling devouring
run fight hide all
 
out beyond those ragged edges
the wide open sky blue
endless calling calling
stretching into bigness beyond
you are
yes you are that too
breathe that alive
 
now.
 
go back
hold that fear
cradle it in your hands
love it
rock it gently
with all the big sky you are.

water be water

the day winds
like a river by
light and darknessScreenshot 2016-09-05 12.00.43
shadows and sun
 
the hours pass
into roar and huff,
buzz and sweetness
 
hello day brimming over
fortune and folly
foolery and fluff
 
the river
it rolls by
voracious and vixen
soft and subtle
all
 
let the water be water my friend
let it wind you down stream
inevitable as gravity is
to the god of your choosing.
