RAIN OF PAIN

WHEN IT BEGINS TO RAIN

LET GO YOUR PAIN

LET LOVE IN

FEEL THE RAIN

…JUST A SETUP FOR LOVE

The Aleph

I have been Homer

And like Ulysses

Soon I shall be Nobody

I shall be all men

I shall be dead

Amor Fati

— inspired by Borges’ The Aleph

the star falls

A man sets out to draw the world. As the years go by, he peoples a space with images of provinces, kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands, fishes, rooms, instruments, stars, horses, and individuals. A short time before he dies, he discovers that that patient labyrinth of lines traces the lineaments of his own face.

— Jorge Luis Borges

once upon a time there was an old star who had thought it had seen everything…

one day it spied with its timeless eye a small blue gem…

what is this new thing covered in blue water…

suddenly, without warning, the star began to fall…

faster and faster…smaller and smaller…until he could fit on the head of pin…

blackness…and then there was light…a bright wet light…

no memory of who he used to be and was still yet up there in the sky…

one day a bird was heard singing by the Hu-Man boy…

but that is another poem for another time…

many adventures await the Hu-Man…

fly you fools

Life As Art

“Chasing after words, pursuing phrases, when will you ever be done?
You run yourself ragged amassing knowledge, becoming widely informed
Self-nature is empty and illuminating, so let things take care of themselves
There’s nothing else I have to pass on.

Clinging, craving and the like
I don’t have them on my mind
That’s why nowadays I can say
“The whole world is truly mine!””

— Zen Master Bankei

Nowhere Man

Am I the only one out here

Sound off already

(Excuse me ladies my artistic license)

Like you got a pair

Are you listening

Put up or go home

Only the living

Can DIE

Who is

ALIVE

Out there

Let us

embrace our

Deaths

With Joy

If we

Have lived

Beyond

Ourselves

If you tremble at

The face of Death

Run within

Simply

We were born

To learn to DIE

We fear Death so

Do you

Deep deep down

Where the shadows roam

Have I conquered Death

I am ALIVE

Spinning nowhere

In  nothing

What makes you

So sure you

are ALIVE

A House Divided

for too long

the back door ajar

there was such a draft

escape always an option

no more hedging

all or nothing

i am whole

standing

here
