Meditation


Meditation

A circle of light beyond the blindfolds
The sphere inside me
brought out
expanded
I become more than what I am

Beating heart
Shining star
For a few moments
I become what we all are

The dust of what was
The flesh of what is
The dream of what will be

A Thousand Things


A Thousand Things

A thousand things seen in:

The promise of red sand
lands I have yet to explore
traveling
in both inner and outer space

The wisp of incense smoke
snaking it's way up
dissipating
becoming one with air

The flicker of a candle flame
rooted yet always dancing
contained
the potential to light up the world

The tranquility of water in a cauldron
nature's reflection
stillness
in the depth of eternity

Dancing With My Shadow


Dancing With My Shadow

The darkness moves
The air is swimming
blacker than black
Weaving thru space
my shape takes form
The primordial urge
swings in the hips
Killer instinct
surges in the belly
The fatal blow
lives in the hands
Survival will
creates motion
dancing destruction
deadly focus
murderous rage
behind the movement
Veils of
hate
anger
arrogance
cover the energy
yet
I control the movement
I dictate the motion
I decide the action

I choreograph the dance

Crystal Ball Gazing


Crystal Ball Gazing

Ice
rainbows and water
sharp jagged landscape
inside a smooth sphere
I see myself traveling
a landscape
solitary
but not alone
barren
but not lifeless
Terrains cut and blunt
unforgiving
yet the difficulty is easily born
happily
walking alongside sheer cliffs
traversing upon glass
living inside a diamond
Peace within
and
peace without
my world
within
a world
