On a Bridge

Day 12 Month 10 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

on a bridge

I'm on a bridge
the river's flowing
down below
boats are going

with the current
drifting by
you look up
catch my eye

I take flight
glide along side
out of body
together we ride

interweaving
streams of air
and of water,
places where

the elements
are interacting
solar, lunar
planets packed in

personalities
and more
souls embracing
at the core

I can feel
what you're feeling
I find you
so appealing

as we're drifting
to the sea,
the ocean of
eternity

Nirvana

Day 10 Month 10 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

nirvana

let's penetrate
the space between
when we're awake
and when we dream

let's visualize,
imagining
anything at all
within

the moments when
time disappears
letting go
of all our fears

letting go
of gravity
to feel the rise
of ecstasy -

nirvana is
a state of mind,
the clarity
as we unwind

in between
awake and sleep,
the secret place
we always keep

returning to
while passing through
both for me
as well for you

time disappears
as we become
aware that we're
forever one

Cascading

Day 7 Month 10 - 13 Moon Calendar

audio/video

cascading      

clouds ride on
the air in motion
up the mountain
from the ocean

accumalating
as they rise,
a wondrous vision
and surprise

to the forest
and its beings
rain starts falling
Sun is fleeing

first it drizzles
then it pours
into a river
which then roars

tumbling, crashing
and cascading
through a canyon
splashing made in

the tumult
and the rush
down and down
through forest lush

whose leaves and branches
hear the rumble
of stones and pebbles
as they tumble

always downward
as gravity
pulls the rain
back to the sea

Appealing

Day 6 Month 10 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

appealing 

faster than light
through rarefied ether
both of us might
either or either

touch with a thought
touch with a feeling
find what we sought
what's so appealing

time disappears
it's an illusion
like all our fears
creating confusion -

faster than light
we come together
day or at night
it matters not whether

I'm in my car
driving and thinking
you are not far
we could be linking

touching with thought
touching with feeling
the long and the short
you are appealing

Reflections

Day 4 Month 10 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

reflections 

cherry blossoms
pink and white
forsythia's yellow
Sun-like light

April showers
pouring rain
a slash of blue
in sky again

days keep growing
night retreats
birds are singing
my heart beats

thoughts are streaming
we're afloat
on a cosmic sea
each one a note

in a universe
vibrating
molecules move
and atoms spin

seasons come
and seasons go
sometimes we're high
sometimes we're low

Always (2)

Day 2 Month 10 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

always

times and places
when we were
together always
now a blur

still on my mind
as you are too
and in my heart
where I feel you

in the ether
in between
all the places
which we've been

still connected
though apart
every ending
is a start

of something deeper
more profound
which is born
from what's unwound

something deeper
something bright
an unseen something
filled with light -

I can feel it
you can too
relax, breathe in
I'm with you

relax, breathe out
I'm still here
together always
very near

sacred mountain

Day 26 month 9 -  13 Moon Calendar

audio/video

sacred mountain 

although far away from
the soaring sacred mountain
still I am feeling
something like a fountain

of inner wonder
at circumnambulation
walking all around it,
a mystical sensation -

unforgiving
altitude and weather
three days walking
devotion as the tether

onwards and upwards
over snowy rises
into windy canyons
with mani stone surprises -

Milarepa's monastery
still standing and still facing
the mountain's gleaming shining
on the human race in

stillness, with the promise
of Shambala's revealing
the reason sacred Kailash
attracts and is appealing
