Stick Stuck Mud

Stick figures get stuck in the mud.

What a Boot!

What is a boot? Or a pencil? Or a rock?

What a fantastic appearance of divine intelligence is a boot.

How utterly incomprehensible it is that there is such a thing as a boot!

And the word that describes it, sorely limited as it is, what an astounding thing that word is.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

As soon as everything is neat and in a tidy bundle,

it falls apart.

Now what ?

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Drastic Measures (pumpkin shell?)

Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater

Had a wife but couldn't keep her.

He put her in a pumpkin shell

And there he kept her very well.

Letting Go

Letting go

Letting go of letting go

Letting go of letting go of letting go

Letting go of.... now what was I doing?

It's All Good

It's all good

Hang in there baby

Don't worry, be happy

Wherever you go, there you are

Shit happens

Keep on truckin'

Peace Is

Peace is knowing that

if humankind obliterates itself

it's O.K.

Neither good nor bad,

just a possibility that can be accepted

in this world of unknowns.

When Death Came

When death came to her door

There was nothing to be done

Because it was discovered

That she never had been born

The Secret Of Life

The secret of life is

Life is a secret

And you're invited!

I Am Summer

I am the electric sun dust

With vibrating cicadas surround

Into the light and shadow

I am in all of this unbound

Sit By This Fire

Cut your paddle through the surface of the evening lake

and drag your glistening canoe to shore.

Come sit by the fire in this misty mountain wilderness.

In tomorrow's story we'll wander more.

A Few Haiku

Falling autumn leaves
Reveal stark sunlight chilling
Soon comes winter wind

The seeds are gathered
Into the burrowing den
Beneath winter's weight

There is no knowing
The depth of silent winter
Warmth a cherished dream


Let go of the past
There never is a future
Be fully present

Invest in loving
Every precious moment now
Seek not beyond this

Time is birth and death
Of each event occuring
Relax in your self

Watch life rise and fall
In light and shadow living
Peace is your nature


You, revealed to be
A phantom in past's dreaming --
Seeking of a ghost

Lost~ you never were --
Only images fleeting
By a wondering

Of you I was not
The calling of your echo
In dreams now fading

Chop Water, Carry Wood

When you're done cutting through the ice to get to the wood pile,

stack some pieces by the stove,

if you would be so kind.

I'll get a good fire going and we can warm our bones

and have some tea.
