Microbes

Day 20 Month 8 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

unseen microbes everywhere
on our skin and in the air...
microbes form a part of who
we are both me and you

inside symbiotically
more than I as they are we...
in the soil enriching all
like the trees which grow so tall

microbes left upon the Moon
back on Earth grew very soon...
in Earth's rocky crust below
unseen microbes still can grow

microbes living everywhere
microbes also are aware...
all together intertwined
microbes helped to write this rhyme

Islands Drifting By

Day 9 Month 8 (13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

water vapour from the ocean
condensation set in motion
by the spinning Earth
with Sun now giving birth

to islands drifting by
high up in the sky...
condensation set in motion
water vapour from the ocean

visions in a stream
awake and in a dream...
mountains in the sky
islands drifting by

imagining what's seen
in places in between
and everywhere around
while standing on the ground

with islands drifting by
high up in the sky
condensation set in motion
water vapour from the ocean

Hexagram 27

Day 1 Month 8 (Solar Jaguar Moon...13 Moon Calendar)

audio/video

molecules and atoms
solar systems too
waking in the morning
coming into view

as all we thought we once knew
is now forever gone
in harmony of consciousness
in which we all belong

by letting go desire
by watching as mind streams
while sitting on a riverbank
where bouncing sunlight beams

are reflecting off the water
which shimmers as it gleams...
everything that we believe
is seldom what it seems...

as visitors from Jupiter
from Saturn and too Mars
invisible yet everywhere
caretakers from the stars

through molecules and atoms
slipping in between
waking every morning
and when we're a dream

Like a Cloud & Elesphinxes

Day 27 Month 7 (13 Moon Calendar)

Like a Cloud

audio/video

gotta get away from here today
to somewhere no one knows
who I am, who I have been
with all the highs and lows

anonymously to pass through the
world that's flowing by
like a cloud blown by the wind
way up in the sky...

gotta let go of all I know
ideas and concepts too
release my mind so I can find
someone else like you

just like me you've gotta be free
from who you were before
you got away so you could play
in ways we both adore...

like two clouds blown by the wind
way up in the sky
anonymously to pass through the
world now flowing by...

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

Elesphinxes

audio/video

at attention, thick and lush
trees are standing in the hush
of the forest's dappled light
standing all day and at night

unseen beings everywhere
on the ground and in the air
elesphinxes, ravens too
always watching what we do

as we wander, as we roam
in the forest, in their home
when deemed worthy, minds at rest
elesphinxes coalesce

into mountains, rising high
with the forest, touching sky
eagles soaring, butterflies
elesphinxes, seeming wise

as trees are standing, in the lush
forest mountain, as we rush
as we wander, as we roam
feeling welcome, we are home

Skipping & Deja-vu

Day 15 Month 7 (13 Moon Calendar)

Skipping

audio/video

skipping through the atmosphere
ion interlaced
invisible but oh so real
for a simple taste

of human interaction
subtle and sublime
all the way from me to you
echoing in rhyme

vibrations in my fingertips
resonate in mind
radiating all around
seeking who to find

with constant incantations
broadcasting radiate
into the timeless space between
too early and too late

where there's a tide when taken
in its surging rush
that joins us for a moment
in feelings sweet and lush

with vibrations in your fingertips
and resonating mind
while sensing that we're joined as one -
what there is to find

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

Deja-vu

audio/video

moments, shadows, deja-vu
like the time when I met you
like the time when you met me
now together happily

breathing in and out we're one
as we change, as we become
brand new beings intertwined
heart to heart and mind in mind

breathing in and out on Earth
giving life each day from birth
with the Sun's relentless power
allowing us to grow and flower

every day, all through the night
in the darkness still there's light
when awake and when asleep
every moment as we keep

breathing in and out to face
consciousness in endless space
never ending we all spin
moving always spiraling

like the time when I met you
like the time you met me too
breathing in and out we're one
as we change, as we become

Rho Cassiopeia & Stuff of Dreams

Day 8 Month 7 (13 Moon Calendar)

Rho Cassiopeia

audio/video

I love it when the stars shine bright
when there's no cloud in the night
and Rho Cassiopeia shines supreme
faintly though, a distant beam

far away from Earth in space
pulsing, growing soon to face
cataclysmic metamorphing
super nova growing dwarfing

stars we know which are quite near
the three Centauri's, Sirius' queer
double, triple Dogon dream
where Nommo spins within a stream

of electricity all around
between the stars where currents are found
in this place where we belong
with Rho Cassiopea's pulsing song -

I love it when the Moon is full
the Sea of Rains, Fertility, all
lunar seas with rainbow bays
slowly spinning two week days

locked in step, in Earth's embrace
a spiraling dance as we both race
through a plasma ocean deep
charging on and charged we keep

falling down towards the Sun
as it keeps moving...we are one
on a journey which we share
planets, moons and comets rare -

I love it when we think we know
then we discover to let go
of all our concepts, although hard set
because we are merely children yet

we keep believing that all around
is all around where we are found
'in the centre', a very old dream
that vanishes like the morning steam

on misty mountains warmed by Sun
not the centre yet still we're one
with Rho Cassiopeia and the Moon
on a world where there's still room

to wake up from the endless deep
long soul slumber, spirit sleep
under stars' twinkling bright
under skies in the night

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

Stuff of Dreams

audio/video

in Neptune's sky where Triton floats
Uranus shines as we make notes
in our minds, so far away
from the Earth...we cannot stay

longer than the time it takes
to synthesize what Neptune makes
as we descend into the air
sparkling blue and everywhere

then rising back into deep space
towards the Sun and Earth we race
passing Saturn, on to Mars
with pale blue Earth among the stars

calling to the inner one
the always shining, like the Sun,
blazing glory deep within
to wake again from where we've been

on a pillow in a room
late at night with light of Moon
all is normal, so it seems
Neptune is the stuff of dreams

Supreme Test & Winking

Day 3 Month 6 (13 Moon Calendar)

Supreme Test

audio/video

 the atmosphere of Mercury,
replenished by our star's
hurricane of particles,
more tenuous than Mars

in the darkened shadows
in perpetual shade
a polar crater paradox
in solar storms is made

ionizing fingers
of electric currents flow
brushing unseen everywhere
making some things glow

Mercury keeps spinning
although synchronized
day and year so very close
tidally it's tied

to the same entity
as Pluto and the rest
the solar supreme deity
which puts it to the test

this is where we must meet
this is where we must go
proving that we can escape
everything we know

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

Winking

audio/video

I rode a beam when I was thinking
all the way to you
within it's stream we were linking
dreams of what to do

rising up while intertwining
possiblities renewed
feelings glowing and too shining
feeling you feel me feel you

sensations flowed and cascaded
ionic mists enthralled
something inside long since faded
came when it was called

we rode the beam as we were linking
somewhere only we
imagined in our minds when winking
happy to be free

to intertwine in all dimensions
skin on skin delights
released from all our old conventions
no wrongs and no more rights

rising slowiy before fading
never to annoy
sensations flowing and cascading
with overflowing joy
