Limits ->


Every person takes the limits
of their own field of vision
for the limits of the world

This is life ->


The sun comes up every day,
The sun goes down every day,
Life fills the space between.
Going with the flow,
Doing what is natural,
Letting life unfold,
‘good’ or ‘bad’…
It doesn’t matter,
It is where life is juiciest,
and ultimately the most fulfilling.
A tree knows this.
A dog knows this.
We just need to remember it.
This is life.
This is living

Circles ->


Remember behind the mirrors,
You are seen as you are…
This time,
life packed in cardboard,
Smelling of dead trees,
regret, and… even hope.
You are seen.
Another time,
star shining bright
amidst sparkling eyes
manic high with a guru heart.
You are seen.
Life is circles
A dervish of beginnings and endings
leaving you exhausted & exhilarated
all in the very same breath
Be…

Inward and Outward Living ->


Love the Earth
and the Sun
and the Animals.
Despise riches,
Give Alms to everyone that asks,
Stand up for the stupid & crazy,
Devote your income & labor to others,
Hate tyrants, argue not concerning god,
Have patience & indulgence toward people,
Take off your hat to nothing known
or unknown or to any man
or number of men,
Go freely with powerful uneducated persons
and with the young
and with mothers of families,
Read these leaves in the open air
every season of every year of your life,
Reexamine all that you have been told at school
or church or in any book,
Dismiss whatever insults your very own soul,
and your very flesh shall be a great poem
and have the richest fluency not only in its words
but in the silent lines of the lips & face
and between the lashes of your eyes
and in every motion & joint of your body…

~Walt Whitman

Rights ->


Don’t like Gay Marriages ….. Don’t get one
Don’t like abortions ….. Don’t have one
Don’t like sex ….. Don’t do it
Don’t like drugs ….. Don’t do them
Don’t like porn ….. Don’t watch it
Don’t like alcohol ….. Don’t drink it
Don’t like guns ….. Don’t buy one
and…
Don’t like your rights taken away…?
… then don’t take away someone else’s!
