Gasping
For The
Flash

A flash
An instant that is meaningless in the endless cosmic cycles
Yet so significant it changes everything
Takes the breath of life from someone you love
A lasso from heaven swept across the sky
Grasping his neck
And taking him back to the dirt and the dust
As our tears turn to rust
As they blanket our face and turn our smiles to stone
And cover our world in a fog of raging fumes
For we lost you
And we are lost with confused chaotic minds
No matter what our beliefs
It doesn’t change the pain of losing a life
A light
Every passing thought of you
Makes the world stop
For moments that seem like hours
And hours that seep into days
I see the air come out of my mouth
Sweet and steaming from a fiery body that still moves
And I feel my life intensify
For every small flash of our lives is so precious
And fragile
I still can’t believe you are gone
You are still so real here
Fresh in our mental recollections

More Than
Skeleton
Bones

My heart unfolds and flows
Out and up upon the mountains
Like a pile of fresh laundry
Soft and clean
Open for all things
To lay upon
To jump within
To pull apart
To cover up
To embrace and delight
Sunlight strings
Dripping from cotton
Dangling upon my face
Tickling my tongue
Which has no words to speak
Eruptive feelings
Are not futile
But the basis of the unconscious being
That lives within
Enveloping your senses
Revolving through doors
Returning with a depth teasing the edge of my perception
We’ve made up stories
We’ve dug holes and buried the meaning of all we knew
Without knowing anything at all
Because our destination of mind
Can only grow into the space of understanding
By each gravitation and desire
Each sin each dream each suffering
Each knife in your back
Gun up your nose
Brings the birth of a storm in color
Explosive flowers in bloom
Roses
Within you
Birds in your chest
Giving you breath
Trees in your veins
Emptying aches
Holding you together
While you are still here
Until you lay on the earth
Skeleton bones
Paralyzing freedom
Sleeping eyes
Dimensions of life

The
Miraculous
Cycle

I have not forgotten
But I have foreseen
The dancers in the forest
Jumping in the stream

I am but a painter
A solid color blue
When the rain cleans
I softly melt for you

Red like blood
Lips like cherry pie
Laughing like children
With tears from old eyes

A feather falls but never lands
It floats upon the wind
For we may die
We will die
But we
Miraculously
Will never end

No One
Really Knows
But We All
Have Suspicions

Fleeting
So sweetly
So divine
To leave the confines
Of the cement and concrete
Of the decadent and obsolete desires
Where do you go
No one really knows
But we all have suspicions
How do you dance
When you have you no body
And nobody around to make up rules

Becoming
Is A Never-Ending
Process

Oscillating
Beneath your feet
The earth opens up
The crust is rusted
It yearns to be free
It means nothing against you
It is destined for renovation
Just like you
But you don’t care
When you cannot stand straight
You cannot see towers ahead
You are blinded by blazes behind you
The lamps along the street leave devastation
In the wake of explosive conversations
Fragments of glass threaten your throat
Tangled snakes of wire joke with you
While seducing your ankles
You hang along the cracks in the earth
Hovering above a whole new dimension
Do not be afraid to let go
Only then you will know
What awaits beyond the free fall
Free fall
Fall into being
Being becomes
Becoming is a never-ending process
You will never stop changing
You will never stop being
Fall into being
Do not be afraid

Waiting
For The
Whisperer

Quiet time
Heart sublime
Wind in ear
Whisperer
Try to sleep
Damn heartbeat
Pound too fast
Lift eyelash
Dream parade
On mind plays
March in time
Erase face lines
Drift away
Hear voices fade
Image of blue
Violet hue
Moving slow
From yes to no
To final place
Rest in grace
Whisperer
