The Way to Go


in another place in another time
in another dream and state of mind
the distance disappears between
where we go and where we've been

always moving in a rush
we pass by the sacred hush,
the peaceful lake in which we swim
when diving into deep within

where all is one when we let go
of everything we think we know...
breathing in and out and in
we expand as we begin

reaching to the stars in space
filled with light, the sacred place,
the emptiness we once believed
is full, our minds were all deceived

round and round and round we go
the galaxies as they each flow
all together in vast streams,
the universe's twisting beams

while floating on a peaceful lake
we return so we can make
breathing in and out and in
the way to go to deep within

Just Beyond


Neptune's rings, Uranus' too
keep slipping in and of view
through ages past and yet to come
these planetary gods move on

touched by currents from the Sun...
the Solar System is all one...
hurricanes and cyclones spin
far away from Earth within

Neptune's atmosphere and too
Uranus' glowing pastel blue
as its side it rolls along
sometimes seeming to belong

to another place in another time
in another dream and state of mind
with Neptune lurking just beyond
a deeper blue, their common bond

with frigid vistas and icy views
heat keeps rising through their blues
as strange things happen every day
on these worlds so far away

Slipping Through the Atmosphere


slipping through the atmosphere
skipping through this rhyme
sliding through the places we're
moving through each time

you are on my mind again
and I am on yours too
like sparkles in a summer's rain
or early morning dew

in beams of light from far away
refracted and released
as spectral visions here at play
while our senses feast

filling emptiness with more
sensations that become
feelings which we both adore
while merging to be one

slipping through the atmosphere
invisibly unseen
coming close and ever near
to waking from this dream

moving through the places we
intersect in time
skipping through the atmosphere
slipping through this rhyme
