Poem: Shooting Star


I'm sure I saw a shooting star
This morning to the West
I made a wish for excellence
That I could do my best
I closed my eyes and dreamed
A dream of Hope and inspiration
Prayed a prayer of safety for
The children of our nation
The shooting star burned bright
And fast like life upon this Earth
I stood a while in darkness and
Pondered on the worth
Of lives well-lived and voices heard
And hearts both brave and strong;
Gave thanks for those courageous ones
Who work to right the wrong
I'm sure I saw a shooting star
That arced across the sky
And left behind a rune of Hope
No need to question why

Poem: Mystic


Rendered holy by the sanctity of bath
She mends the seams of a new reality
Eyes closed, she sees the tears
In the fabric of time
Old songs upon ancient lips
Weary whispers of unknown hopes
Thread through the warp and weft
Of yesterday’s dreams
Slipping silently into a new baptism
She re-emerges, almost whole
A new creation

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.

Poem: Prophecy

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