I’ve Nowhere to Go

[June 2010]

I have but moments
You have an eternity
I have desires chasing limitations
You have boons to grant
I have but steps to climb
A bell to ring, a pew to sit
Bones touching earth
Hands extended
You have but to see my tortured soul
To know
I have nowhere to go
But you can choose both time and deed
To provide succor
Wherever you be
To one forever in search
Of your celestial home.

For the flowers of silence to bloom

Are we truly alone
Is a question I have pondered
Even sleep drives thoughts
Chewing the living embers
Mints mere memories
All chasing life
Are we truly alone
In a Universe that breathes sound
Where earth is only
A monk’s chamber of echoes
Others have visited
And some have heard

In the midst of living
Within a terrain of images
Spouting like a geyser
Once earth heats
To release emotions
Are we truly alone
Or a fugitive awaiting time

I am all that you must one day be

I am many things you don’t know
The hand that brought sand
The air held in my breath
The blood surging in your vein
The thought in your dream
The link between you & me
I am both mentor & host
Anchor & image
On a screen that as guest
You cannot see
I am thought. I am love, I am family
I am much that you want to be
An endless path that unwinds
Below the Sky & the Sea
A mountain you must climb
A life that you must live
A desire that must be fulfilled
Come to me little one
I am inception conception and perception
I am all that you must one day be.

A Farmer of Stars

I scoop the stars
Into my palm
In waters gathered from the storm
Each star
a world
Slipping slowly from my palm.

I wander
With the receding star
See the light
From afar
I reflect on
The moving light
Of what just might have been
Dreams swept by that moment’s delight.

Loss, always loss
Of the star
That was never mine
Each
