Some Things/When Alone/Winter Sun

Day 18 Month 5 (13 Moon Calendar)

Some Things

audio/video

these are some things I want you to know
I love you, sky, ocean, mountains with snow
I love you as woman, I love you as child
I love you when spicy, I love you when mild...

these are some things afloat in my mind
afloat in space ocean, drifting in time
swirling sensations, whirlpools of thought
a vortex of spirit, coming to naught...

these are some things with you I must share
recycled water and recycled air
joy and too sadness, endless ennui
falling asleep in dreams, just to be...

these are some things I want you to know
I love you, I love you, through love we both grow
becoming new beings, egos let go
the rhythm of breathing, fast as well slow...

these are some things I want you to know
I love every being I meet as I go
I love every sound, every vision I see
I love you for listening as words flow from me...

When Alone

audio/video

the sun keeps shining
through the night
the stars keep twinkling
when it's light

sadness comes
with ecstasy
I feel you when
you feel me

fingers touching
minds aroused
contemplating
in a crowd

of thoughts that tumble
swept along
believing we're where
we belong

in the darkness
when alone
on our laptops
on the phone

in electric
harmony
I feel you when
you feel me

-----------------------------------------------------------

Winter Sun

audio/video

low in the sky
the winter sun
it disappears
and we become

in winter night
awaiting dawn,
in the dark.
to be reborn

on a world
that's far away
two suns in the sky
day after day

perhaps within
a giant red
like Betelgeuse
where overhead

there is no night
it always glows
no stars to see
and no one knows

of winter night
or winter sun
and twinkling stars
can never come

Dryads

Day 13 Month 5 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

dryads dancing in the trees
disappearing when
human interlopers
are passing by and then

from the trees returning
into their secret glades
joyfully they mingle
after daylight fades...

luminescent beings
flitting here and there
loved by all the creatures
in this place they share

together in a temple
open to the sky
rising up among the trees
in awe without a why...

all the natural rhythms
the phases of the Moon
reflected sunlight bouncing
create a dancing tune

the rustle of the leaves
wind moving through the heights
of the trees...just visible
the intertwining lights

of dryads dancing in the trees
disappearing when
human interlopers
are passing by again...

Accelerating

Day 11 Month 5 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

accelerating
the longer we live
faster and faster
we're held in a sieve

of time disappearing
vanishing, it's gone
yesterday's fading
and now we belong

spinning in cycles
while rising we fall
into the future
we pass through the wall

of mind's limitations
ideas we once held
lost in the ruins
of where we once dwelled

faster and faster
as winter becomes
spring's exultation
then warm summer suns

leaves in the autumn
fall to the ground
christmas then newyear's
around and around

accelerating
the longer we live
faster and faster
we take and we give

time's disappearing
soon to be gone
yesterday's fading
in now we belong

Unseen Nymphs

Day 9 Month 5 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

a river of light is shimmering where
rippling water is touched by the air

shining brightly unseen nymphs
skip on the water, sometimes they're glimpsed

by the eagles who live here by the sea
by seagulls and sometimes people like me

and by the beings who ride in a beam
from Sun to the Earth through space in a stream -

bouncing, reflecting, refracting too
an electro-magnetic heavenly view

visions in fountains of feelings divine
everything's alright - now is the time

with wind on the water and Sun in the sky
to let go of thinking, awaken and fly

over rivers of light shimmering where
rippling waters are touched by the air

Chameleons Kissing

Day 6 Month 5 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

to imagine, to expand
to fly away just to land
in a meadow, in a field
by a river, there to yield

to surrender, to let go
diving in to the flow
being adrift under the Sun
feeling at peace, feeling the One-

to imagine, to expand
to fly away, please understand
atoms are visions in the mind
as is thinking where we each find

everything's moving, nothing stands still
everything's empty, everything will
be recreated, sometimes it's strange
chameleons kissing change after change -

to imagine, to expand
to fly away hand in hand
leaving the planet, leaving the Earth
seeking new worlds, seeking rebirth

there to surrender and to let go
by diving in to the flow
drifting along under the sun
feeling at peace, feeling as One -

Floating in Between

Day 4 Month 5 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

a chrysalis of consciousness
is floating in between
who we are when we're awake
and being in a dream

a cocoon of transformation
a hypnagogic trance
is waiting for the moment when
we have another chance

to see beyond our thinking's
distractions, where we find
there is something much more real
flowing through each mind

flowing through and all around
streaming through each heart
flowing back and forth among
all now at the start

of who we are when we're awake
every time we breathe,
the rhythm of awakening,
so that we can leave

the chrysalis of consciousness
which is floating in between
who we are when we're awake
and being in a dream

Fly Away Together & Repeating Rhythms

Day 28 Month 4 (13 Moon Calendar)


Fly Away Together

audio/video

let's think about the link
which joins us so completely

let's feel all the appeal
smell and taste each other sweetly

let's rise into the skies
let's fly away together

let's float a sailing boat
on liquid love forever

let's dream we ride a beam
away into deep heaven

let's be, just you and me
each a perfect seven

let's become the perfect ones
we've been since the beginning

in lives which we've survived
once lost now we are winning

let's rise into the skies
let's fly away together

let's float a sailing boat
on liquid love forever

------------------------------------------------

Repeating Rhythms

audio/video

 sleeping, waking
contemplating
everything seems new

repeated rhythms
here while living
taking in the view

ocean, mountains
spectral fountains
scenes that disappear

walking, driving
resting, striving
letting go of fear

thinking, blinking
rising, sinking
manifesting too

peaceful visions
bold decisions
just to be with you

feelings tumbling
words I'm mumbling
silently within

can you hear me?
are you near me?
can we now begin?
