Poem for 2014


dragon sky 2014

God picks up the the reed-flute
world and blows.

Each note is a need coming
through one of us,
a passion,
a longing pain.

Remember the lips
where the wind-breath
originated,
and let your note be clear.
Don’t try to end it.
Be your note.

I’ll show you how it’s enough.
Go up on the roof at night
in this city of soul.
Let everyone climb on their roofs
and sing their notes!

Sing Loud!

Rumi

Do you see?


Do you see what I see?
Do you see the patterns
scribled in thoughts
written in history
designed in primordial awakening?

Do you see the patterns
in our massing needs
in our reaching desires?

Do you see the unfurling future
driven by the swirling breaths of thoughts
pelting down upon unsuspecting dreams?
