Day After Day & Whales

Day After Day

video

 day after day after day after day
hour after hour after hour
minutes keep taking the seconds away -
time has a fleeting power

invisible fingers hold us in place
making us all believe
that we must stay in time's embrace
at least until we leave

certainty tells us we're not here for long
falling asleep each night
remembering always that we all belong,
basking in heavenly light

day after day after day after day
from time with its fleeting power
there's always a chance to get away
every minute of every hour

as minutes keep taking the seconds away
time has a fleeting power
within the spaces between where we play
in moments in any hour

Whales

video

whales emerging from the ocean
dolphins too in graceful motion
filled the bay, a dream last night,
from which I woke and now I write

beneath canopies of leaves turned golden
in autumn sun becoming cold in
the endless cycle of the seasons
weather always has its reasons

Earth keeps wobbling up and down
ice keeps melting as we drown
in tidal waves of raw emotion
'til whales emerging from the ocean

fill the emptiness inside
reaching in to where we hide,
telepathically interweaving
something shimmering before leaving

Thrill

video

here are some thoughts from me to you
wherever you are, whatever you do
whenever these words are drifting by,
while moving around under the sky,...

there is between us a space that is filled
with a deep penetrating mind to mind thrill
everything you think, all that I feel
flows in between us and it is real

when we are trusting, when we let go
when we imagine that we can know
I am with you when you are with me
we are together separately

joined for a moment or two in this time
we resonate freely from mind to mind
with visions appearing while breathing in
then breathing out and in to begin

a deep penetrating mind to mind thrill
the space in between us ecstatically filled
with everything you think, all that I feel
flowing between us with such an appeal

Drifting Off to Sleep & One In a Million

Drifting Off to Sleep

video 

 drifting off to sleep
to wake again then keep
drifting off to sleep
with dreams which somehow seep

into when wide awake
believing we can shake
our dreams away before
waking then once more

be drifting off to sleep
as in our minds we leap
from all we think we know
as we begin to go

somewhere deep within
out again then in
while drifting off to sleep
to wake again and keep

drifting off to sleep
consciousness oblique
drifting off to sleep
relaxed and in a heap

dreams about to peak
drifting off to sleep
to wake again and keep
drifting off to sleep...

One In a Million

video

 
there she was just walking by
ten thousand before had not caught my eye
one in a million, a trillion maybe
someone I fell for instantly

our eyes met, then she was gone
for something inside me she was the gong
waking me up and letting me know
to do what I'm doing in order to grow

in the universe all around
and inside where I am found
there's no one else who I can be
than who I am now, presently -

there she was and now I know
maybe I'll see her again in the flow
of people passing before my eyes...
expectations beginning to rise

she's one in a million, a trillion maybe
she's someone I fell for instantly
ten thousand before had not caught my eye
then there she was just walking by

Far Away (Log Entry)

 video

far away from Earth we went
to what seemed a heaven sent
warm and lush green paradise
a world without the curse of ice

no inclination so each day
was just as long as yesterday...
tomorrow promised equal light
for just as long as every night

with stars we knew when on the Earth
except the one that gave us birth
here shining in the sky at night
so far away yet very bright...

by a lake where mountains dipped
in water pure for all to sip
from a stream with just a hint
of shimmer sparkling in each glint...

electricity from the sun
free for all and everyone
electricity for our ship
to power the returning trip

When I Was Ten

 video

 

 transported by a whiff of air
to my English childhood where

the future stretched away unseen
all seemed right, the world was green

humidity, my mum called 'close'
my uncle's house contained a ghost

I had a sister, two brothers too
and every day was fresh and new

now many years have come and gone
in Canada where I belong

with memories and feelings which
a whiff of air has been the switch

to cascading thoughts of what was then
before I left, when I was ten

Travelers (Part 2 of First Contact)

video

faster than the speed of light
almost a thousand times
two days it's taken through the night
much slower than our minds

Proxima in reddish glory
is coming into view
since Dragonfly's intriguing story
of other beings who

orbited a unknown spacecship
'round Proxima's Planet B
Dragonfly on this return trip
is to probe this mystery...

scanners scanning, sensors bristling
Dragonfly arrives
motors whir with quiet whistling -
it's probed yet still survives

mutual robotic travelers
embracing electrically
both exceeding their parameters
in orbit at Planet B

contact made then separation
both spacecraft then return
to different worlds in preparation
for robot minds to learn

Taking Selfies & On Your Mind

Taking Selfies

video

on the shores of who we are
waves keep rolling from afar
across an ocean in between
what we know and the unseen

splashing crashing surging tide
coming close to where we hide
inside our heads, inside our minds
taking selfies, writing rhymes

with penetrating thoughts we think
we rise up before we sink
with oscillating points of view,
which turn into me and you

in our bodies breathing air
in and out and in somewhere
we are beings deep in space
always moving as we chase

the Sun which spirals on and on
and keeps us where we all belong
moving through and in between
where we go and where we've been

On Your Mind

video

tired and lying down
I think
it's warm, you're on my mind
we're linked

in this moment, in my mind
radiating thought waves find
you lying in your bed
awake and wondering what has led

you into thinking that you are
not alone when from afar
I am with you in a flash
with warm sensations...feelings crash

on the shores of who you are
as waves keep rolling from afar
where I am lying still awake
dreaming we are on a lake

in the sunshine on a day
that lasts as long as we both stay
entwined in visions we create
filled with maybe's, sharing fate

while you're lying in your bed
imagining what you've not said
coming out from time to time,
when sharing what is on your mind
