the heavens
caress our heads
every day

inviting us to
consciously contemplate
the magnitudes
they display

infinitely gorgeous
wondrously wide
ineffably beautiful

120 upside down

looking through
the lens of our minds
can turn things
on their heads

we confound
the signals of
our moral compass
the pull of our

119 window 02

framing our experience
with the stories
we tell ourselves

creates so many pictures
do not reflect the light

118 creativity

when we lose our souls
in seriousness
we lose more
than just our
sense of humour

the creativity 
effortlessly flows
becomes something
we see
only in others
to risk the ridiculous

117 old souls

we search the planet 
gurus and teachers

and forget
the infinite grace and knowing
that flourishes
in our back yard

wisdom and understanding
are all a matter
of perspective

when you give up the fear
it all becomes clear

115 safe haven

our souls seek the restful shores of peace
little realising
that those gentle latitudes are only reached
by braving stormy seas

with our mates
to embrace all the excitement

112 cycles

the wisdom of the seasons
often escapes us
as we scurry and scuttle
through life.

we defy
the natural process
to our peril

gone is the cycle
of birth, fruiting, harvest and death
into one long
drab day

the same day
for seventy years
is not a life

111 butterfly soul

the worldly grub
of my spirit
writhes and creeps
through the luxurious forest
of life

called to my cocoon
at first I resist
the change is awe-full
the pain, the total surrender of form
is not negotiable

when I emerge
the world is changed
and I drink the elixir
of a thousand flowers

110 dusk

Mystic moments
Liquid light
Drifts and coalesces
An intimate embrace
Of earth and forest

Magic moments
When the
Between here and there
Is thin
And wisdom leaks into minds

109 tribe

our tribe
our pack
our soul family

bonded through time and space
we love and weep
reveling in familiarity
our mind
in another's body

as natural as breathing
as wise as life itself

108 perspective

The mountain goat,
From her precarious
Vantage point,
Looks down on 
The soaring eagle, 
and weeps.

Beak and talon and wing
She forgets
The sheer cliff
Which is her playground.

107 music

opaline light
phoenix-bright leaves

the forest
in colour

bacchanal bellows
symphonic stridulation

the forest
in sound

This pattern
Set in nature
Universally true

To know how to rest
To know how to thrive
