golden sunsets

I ramble with the sky
looking into the center, a vaccum

of space and time
mirroring

the cosmic qualities of you and me
and

the golden sunsets
we continue to dream

the moons gentle bestowing

the moon is always calling to me, through
the vastness of the space, in-
between

the stars and galaxies…

I rest easy in this knowing, learning more about
myself through the reflection of
the moons gentle
bestowing

kind and compassionate, sitting in the sky, just for our
eyes, like a dreamer,
disguised

in plain view, the nature of listening to the wind,
and learning from the whispers
carried on the backs
of

those we call our friends…trees, flowers, and all of nature’s
creations, call forth
a love

living at the center of the cosmos, providing protection
from the storms that enter mind, and heart
at the same time

while we sit back, breathe in, and realize that life is,
just now,
in this moment,
already in love

with
all we’ve already given…

Tanka #10

sit, watch, and wait, while
the Universe explains the
scene unfolding, and
the mystery within, as
one moment becomes the next.

Unseen

As I close my eyes to the sky,
and breathe in deep, it occurs to me
that time as we understand it has stopped
belaboring me, while the vastness before me
unfolds and expands with a specialness that will
withstand all contrivances that the mind has planned.

Disrupting the pattern created over millennia,
I watch silently, as the breath moves in and out of
my body, and my heart slows down, to match the
hidden, and ever so mysterious criteria.

Listen and believe in the unseen, for even when
in doubt you can be sure that there is clout and
integrity in the system of stars and constellations that
remains, at times, hidden, yet always smitten.

And at others, it’s all we can do to catch a glimpse
of that magical consideration, and watch
as the dance of the cosmos plays out,
and all our dreams come about.

Believe, I say, in the unseen, and dream big right
into that emptiness, knowing all the while that
that vastness is where all of life’s
greatest gifts are awaiting your
focused attention, and future
dissemination.
