Relocate

Let your mind

Pull up stakes

From its old

Dusty space.

Let your heart

Relocate

To a wider

Warm place.

Open eyes

To new shores.

Plant ideas

Expand more.

Knit the yarn

Click and purl

Weave and braid

Loop and curl

Blanket beds

Shelter heads

From the cold

Up ahead.

Heart Percussion

May the percussion of your heart

Beat not staccato in your core

But breathe legato in your soul

To sing vibrato to your whole.

Have Mercy

Have mercy

For those who have not

For those who don’t know how

And weren’t taught.

Have mercy

For your own lost corners

Where the words of others

Might’ve carved a hole

That is yet to get darned

And still exacts a toll.

Have mercy

For your

Need to hope

You’d make your

Spirit

Whole.

Take a break from the city

From the din

From the crowds.

Walk yourself into quiet

Find a park

Riverside.

Turn the clamor to low

Let your breath

Ebb and flow.

Walkabout

In the monotonous pace of desert hikes, there lies a meditative calm: as wispy trails rise and descend, as footpaths curl around a bend, as dirt turns palettes of light and shade, as layers pressed in rock clutch eras so long gone, they are quite literally written in stone.

On This Planet

Every day I am reminded

How very partial I am

To the multitudes of

Living things

Upon this Earth.

They are all part of me

Just as I am part of all.

You see,

Our air has been

A zillion times recycled

Through innumerable breaths.

Each drop of water has been

In every ocean

Swam in every river

Rained on every land.

Molecules have merged into our very selves

From all that is around us.

Life has birthed and died and birthed

Repeatedly

So many times

That we are indeed

Essentially

Not just of one planet

But all One.
