my ass spends
a lot of time here

heart-shaped friend

standing there
an invitation

to know self

lawn cosmology

during spring
the sun lived in my grass
tiny lion

now many
stars have fallen there
blue twinkles


laser beams collide
distant communications
I feel you right here

naked before god

when flesh covered those

stark white bones

you guarded

farmer's sleeping fields

from the wind

in my heart

don't forget
rule number one:
I hit you

there exists
a balance between
grace and combat

why we train with music
it's like dancing with sharp things
hands or sticks or knives

in the figure eight
there is new found elegance
infinity movements

the waifs- sundirtwater

ripe tomatoes taste
like sun, like dirt, like water

this is alchemy

dancing on
my rear view mirror
I see you

spider has
super sensitive grip
with eight legs

blue sky is calling
that window invites my gaze
the magnet and the steel

I surrender to
irresistible forces
needle spins true north

sometimes I believe

Wax Poetic with Norah Jones - Angels

sometimes I believe
angels come in many shapes
often without wings

out on the edge

how much will I risk?
how badly do I want it?
it's all up to me

small movements offer
an extra boost of power
precision matters

turn hurt into skill
how salt water saved my life
with blood sweat & tears

adam in alaska

my camera had some
adventures in alaska
a life of its own

glaciers start thawing
what was long frozen now melts
everything changes

blame it on the moon

we watched the orb rise
from blankets on the damp grass
lovers chose the bench

ink and wine flowing
love letters to the moon
all praises to beauty

august meditation

dark dusky purple
dropped by handfuls in the pail

plunkety plunk plunk

picking by instinct
my hands are guided by feel

only the willing fall

singing songs to them
just as hunter thanks the prey
who says plants can't feel?

holy synapses
inspiring fenestrations
church of my body

internal alarm
doesn't always work for me
perseid passed by

clicking with my mind

clicking with my mind
a different aperture
longing for that lens


these subtle movements
ticking of the universe
can they be measured

this is the moment
and this and this and this
don't stop listening

just how sensitive
can my energy become
pay attention now

dropping down & down
light flickers behind my eyes
golden spreading pool

love is flowing
in the dreams of ready souls
time's ticking away

lonely cup

what could be sadder?
first cuppa and last droppa
more half n half please

four seasons sky

wind rose from nowhere

sunset flashed while dark clouds rolled
keep eyes on the road

wall of water appears
rainbow and lightning share sky
where was my camera?

She followed me home
Disentangling herself
from the naked trees

A shimmering trail
of light reached out to touch me
It sizzled brightly

ray of creation

becomes trinity
becomes me

from simple
it grows to complex
now knotted

these many constraints
on being
