Present Truth

one must be
in the moment
for life to
ever come true

touch the ground
and be grounded
find comfort here

living, being,
breathing, now
this is where
it will all happen

Meditation on How

there’s no
figuring out how
to live life

there is only
the living of life

those who
figure out how
end up learning
to forget all hows
in order to live again

Love is Active

love never exists
as a fact

it is a verb
and you can do
all things
with or without it

it is nature
in action
being true
to itself
without even
a thought

Seductive Form

form is so seductive
as long as there is a story
something to invest in
a choice to be made
an excursion out of emptiness
a departure from or to
something to get involved in
something to distract us
something to remind us
of how much we care
about what is good
about what is right
about what is true

as long as it even remotely
makes sense to our hearts

More and More

less and less
do I lust after
longing, longing
in one moment
after something
place and time
where promise lives
brighter, better

less and less
do I spend wishing
on someplace else
realizing, yes
realizing more, more
there is no difference

space is all one
how is everything

Emptiness

sometimes
I catch my life
in reflections
windows, mirrors
shiny surfaces
bouncing light

dissolving density
in this consciousness
destroying gravity
all being light
and lightness

so that
nothing there is
but one life
amused

Angelic Dust

the wisdom of no-time
operating in motes
quarks and the etheric

faster than speed itself
with the precision of no-mind
angels giddy with grace

taking forms to tease
forming realities that please
bringing gods to their knees
