what a drag




what slows me down more?

the wind caused by my running
or hiding roadside?

pulled into my lungs
air movement forced by suction
might not work the best

drizzle



coffee calls

I brave the weather

Gore-tex rules



wet drizzle

accompanies me

while walking



a pattern

of worms decorate
s
the sidewalk

damp



greeting the

unfamiliar greens

of Portland


look closely

there's a universe

in the moss


shiny crows

ignore me as they

peck at grass


the sky spits
shades of silver gray

now I'm damp

falling water


laughing white water
rushing down the slick black gorge
what's your hurry friend?

lace draped over green
a table cloth in motion
dancing in the wind

feeling for the edges



boundaries

by definition
show the shape

when I ask
about the value
of something

I'm seeking
motivation, not
rebelling

facial parentheses


do you know

how many muscles

make a smile?

stopping this
accidental curve

not easy


expressions

finding their own groove

on my face


map of the

adventures and

places I've been

just for a moment



wild wild heart
show me other options
lost and found

broken glass
neither half empty
nor half full

notice now
explode the question
throw it out


.

what would happen if
I put all my shoes away?
obstacle course gone!

who can clear the path
but the one who wants to hike?
the trail is open


Wednesday, February 11, 2009

heart full of light


half-hearted no more
visions fade, reassemble
inside the spotlight



Tuesday, February 10, 2009

the moon laughed


last night the moon laughed
even the clouds cannot hide
her glowing beauty

smoke signals or steam
mist rises from my coffee
enticing message

Monday, February 9, 2009



seeking my
personal legend
I aim high




Thursday, February 5, 2009



an ice age retreats
revealing hopeful lichen

spring is on the way

puzzling evidence



puzzling evidence

colors mix and match
peeling bark tells a story

edges fit together



this map of the world

reveals hidden mysteries

continents collide

progress bar



something about when
I'm nestled in a time line...
progress is measured

counting grains of sand
how many will be needed
to build that castle?

keep looking ahead
and you'll miss the fun of now
horizons can wait
