ADRIATIC VIGNETTE (2)

The wind stroked
the sea;
the sea caressed
the shore,
whistling and humming
in unison
forevermore.

ADRIATIC VIGNETTE (1)

Today I went
where the mountains
kiss the sea
and sat between
the gold and the foam
in reverie…

ABSORPTION

It doesn’t matter
how much you’ve read
(or thought,
or said)
– what matters
is how quiet you are
(and: still,
but not dead).

OFF I GO…

I wish I could say:
“Mountains, here I come,”
go there and stay…
but life keeps
pulling me away.

Still, one can dream:
one day, folks, one day
we all leave all
and walk
Our Own Way…

NO FREEDOM OF CHOICE

The inborn
and imposed
help choose
the proposed
and re-create
one’s fate.

RELAX!

When the pain of grief
does alight
– hush, hush my heart…

When the joy of love
takes a flight
– hush, hush my heart…

They come and they go
whether I describe them or not
so: stop, just stop.

Life is a simple Flow
when I’m empty of thought
and nothing is craved or fought.

Relax!

Everything will go on
even if the words drop
so: drop them, just drop.

PRESENCE OF MIND

Hush,
dear mind,
hush
– there’s nowhere
to rush.

Do not stir
and blow away
the Light
that’s a Goal
and a Way.

It is here
and it is now
– just watch
without as much
as: “Wow…”

QUINTESSENCE

When the veil of words
does lift
we are drawn
to the Silent Light
forever
lit.

SIDETRACKED

Where have I been
– which dark hole
did I dig
to hide in?

And how did I
keep missing
the Light
within, within?

SUPREME COMMAND

Get out
of the dark pit

– remember,
remember,
remember
It!
