  Upwards

like a bird I will fly
flitting endlessly
unburdened and un-trapped

without such fluidity of spirit
how can I not reach beyond the stars

this worlds burdens left behind
strangled by their own earthly rigidity

but launched by this certain magic
i will travel
warm currents attract me
carried into a river of time

such other worldly soaring
attracts my spirit
to bear
surprising fruit

  Bird

The beautiful articulation of birds flight
always changing with the weather
darting with a precision in time

A mastery of space
And freedom to linger in the heavens
With changes of view
And possibility of perspectives

They talk in silence
and colour the canvas
of the mind with alternatives

  Beach

Just sitting on still rock
With vast skies above
to stars beyond
touching all distant horizons

breathe this breath
and filter thought
through shifting rhythms

now
this moment of time
takes shape beyond all words

silent sensing of forms
from the presence of spaces
that manifests within

And in this sense
sitting
on still rock
quietly reaches
and touches
absolutely
every thing

Key

This childhood
A playground of memories
Designed by the unknown architects
of touch or voice

Landscapes hidden below this adult world
Its noises and bustling
Can we hear those voices still playing?
Excited mutterings of sensory discovery

Lost ghosts or shadows
Found alive in our fingertips
Reminding us
Calling us
Be present
This moment

Autumn Leaves

Find me quiet
where man and his busyness
is left to rest
from correcting damage
or just not interfering

The loud booming economic voice
is not equipped to validate
the quiet
vibrancy of autumn leaves

  Searches for Silences

Is there a lost language
A space that we rushed to fill
Did we cram it full of gadgets and desires
Or the relentless pursuit of point B
Are we now deaf to the sound?

Within

Silence
Undivided by human noise
undivided by thought
Now completed
within simple breath

Light

In this space between land and sky
where our head is tilted
angled by finite time

Yet
are we able to gaze into eternity
away from architectural emphasis
that shifts and shapes
the entering light

Becoming 

Thoughts could flatten
This world we see

But
in space with air or flight
in day or night
The visible invisible
Bursting with certain geometry
Dynamic
And unfolding

Silence in motion
adjusts all measurements
with natures
careful time
