When you pay attention
Even the most
Commonplace thing
Is revealed as
A unique and precious treasure

131 currency

If I show you affection,
Will you feed me?

If I cater to your needs
Will you shelter me?

If I appreciate you
Will you defend me?

What is the currency of our love?

130 community

;
The most profound truths of life
Are discovered
In community

When we rub shoulders
We find all the
Sharp edges
Of our beliefs

We gather around ourselves
Those who support
Our world view

Who have you
Drawn to you
On this journey?

128 comfort


My pack heart
seeks out
My spirit mates

in them I find
reflections
of who I could be

127 wonder


in the end

we should not be measured
by the size
of our achievements, or wealth, or fame

but, rather, 

we should be measured
by the size
of the wonder we infused
into all of our earthly days

126 magic architecture


we look at the product
and marvel

admiring
execution, structure, expression,

and the architect
scuttles away
to friendlier climes

125 sculpture


alabaster cries in envy

the fluid flow
of flesh
and bone
denied
by its very own nature

always building illusions
of great beauty

yet never housing
spirit
or
soul

124 jungle dream

Leopard Cat

what part of you
is hiding out
in the jungle of your mind?

is it shy and reclusive?
or is it hungry and predatory?

where has your wildness gone?

each bit of wildness on this planet
affirms its existence

123 natures palette


the hues of  natural life
are endless
fabulous
gorgeous

yet
we don the grey of industry
and bury ourselves in the black of waste

denying 
the colour in our souls
bleeds 
the light
from our minds

122 cathedral

sacred cathedral
carved by mystic wave

a place where 
adamant rock and relentless ocean 
commune
and 
create a place 
fit 
to worship
the magic forces of life and death
