No Iron Needed

There’s a crease in my memories.

An obscure line

Of thoughts.

There’s a wrinkle along

The predictable


I’ve accumulated crinkles

And crimps

And what not.

It is fine

As it is.

It is what

It need be.

All those furrows and folds

Are what makes me

Be me.

Blink Of An Eye

In the blink of an eye

Life shifts gears

Age speeds by

To leave tears

On a cheek

As in one glancing streak

Years flash


Of mystique.

The Time is Near

The time is near

To wrap up yet

Another year

To open


To better cheer

So stale old fogs

Can slowly clear

And fresh

New hopes

Set in Stone

There are eons of old

Set in stone

Pressed in rock.

Do you hear them

Or not

Do you know

What you’re told

Can you feel part of all

That had gone

And which may

Or may not

Come along

To live on?

Be At home

Be at home

In the world.

In the spaces



And now

All the past times

And futures

To come.

Be at home

In your soul.

Let it inhabit

Your all

Let it welcome

A Coil of Time


Life will loop back

Onto itself

A coil of time,

A wreath of memories



Hold tight. Ride on.

A curve will come.

A turn to grow.

Till the next loop

Flows back

Passion Fruit plants: Intertwined

Photo-Jason Groepper

The earth, the air, the water;

The sun, the sea, the dust of stars;

The times that passed and built the present;

Things nascent now that

Have not yet become –

All intertwined.

We’re none of us alone

Or separate.

Aware or not,


Is and always been

The only way

For life
