Poem from the Past: The Way of the Poet

My dream a way
(Budo)
My thoughts alone
(Zazen)
My life a riddle
(Koan)
My word a sword
(Kendo)
My poem gives way
(Judo)

Poem from the Past: In the Midst of All Things


I am the moon
Big and round
and bright
a pearl of great
worth in the
Velvet dark
and I
recall her
 humble countenance
reflecting the
Light of the very
        Sun who
shines like
Love upon her
     Alabaster face.

Haiku: Full August Moon

A Full August moon
Face of hope and secret dreams
Beaming promises

Poem: Prophecy

Listen to the dreams of the heart
There is no other prophecy
Nor any secret unrevealed

A desert sunset 
Glory of all that is good
Needs no reminder

Western skies at dusk
Clouds billow on horizon
Bringing hope for rain

Soft diamonds in the evening
The darkness broken
Promise of morning
