Gold Of Sun


Gold of sun

I bring to you

In yellow hue

Of Daffodil

My willing heart

Like honey bee

That gathers nectar

From the tree

To weave the honey

Sweet a treat

For eating

You and me

Are liquid golden

Melt of yolk

In thrust of corn stalk

Pulsing hope

Our juices run

Becoming what we be

In light and warmth

Of airy free

Our bliss in this

Is not amiss

It is the kiss of life

For you to be

From me who sees

Your beauty sees

Your need

Feeds your heart

Come feast with me

Things I ate

About you

Are the things

I hate but do

And you

Hate the things

That you

Had to take in

Too we do

A lot of got

To taking for

The making

Of ourselves can

We eschew

These things undo

The knots that tie

Us to the things we use

To mind us could we

Ever lose to find us

We are seekers

In our blindness

Bleeding need to

Redefine us

Make some room

Inside for new

Replace in haste

To recompense

The waste of things

We hate but ate

Inside us we may

Never rest

Until our best

Through appetite

Takes in our right

And satiates our fighting

To be free

Each of every

Breaking day

They love to hate

And hate to love

They never can

Get enough

Of any stuff will do

Forever empty taking

In too plentiful

Of lack in substance

All abundance

Of no being

Without meaning

To intend a lend

Of vacancy in soul

A hole an open door

No one at home

They left before

The rent is due

Now what of you?

My Miss Story


Peel apart
A heart to find
The inside
Of the need
I have
To Know
The Whole
The Matter
Of the things
I crave
The chambers
Where my love
Is made or not
Are empty
There’s no showing
To be got
No thing to hold
Or ever have
But breath
And space
A placing of
Of what I Will
And call myself
My miss story
Of me in human
This spirit
Of unfoldment
If it may or knot
To close and tighten
As a fist
To fight
For right of Might
And mine and hey!
I could let go
And loosen
In a chance
Relax and come
What will?
And see the truth
Of opening to it
Inside I find
Sublime in timing
Out in still
To almost stopping
Point of rest
Is Peace
So sweet release
Of me and my
Is gone
I am full filled

The Dance of Duo


Unknit the knots
Untie the why
The wherefore where we
Strive to try
To find a way
Out of the labyrinth of I
Is kept our Minotaur
Of mazes lost in self
Amazed devourment
Is ever eaten and re- tossed
So follow out
Your thread of life
Rewind the strive and stress
Address the balancing
Of will and chance
A dance with earth and air
Askance a universe of movement
In a trance of breathing
Limbs and meanings
In a spinning
Atmospheric twirl of curling
Spiral whirring
Whims beginning
Things and endings
With a kiss hello
The same in motions turn
Is blending into one
Is all and only you
And me the we
Our wherefore
Of the feeling
Full completion
In our reeling
Doubling to duo of
The One
