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

The Dragon and The Hanged Man

“Teachers open the door, but you must enter for yourself.”

Great knowledge presented itself
Freely
Swirling Cosmic Consciousness enveloped me
In the path of sweeping change
Caught in the inescapable
The only path forward
I mount the horse of our greatest fate
Delusions of future probabilities
Dispelled
The Dragon rose to confront that
In me divided
Opposites
Do you see
Good
I KNOW nothing
Perhaps you can show me The Way
The Lodge of the Masters
Was here before us all along
What is Right
Exists beyond me
Never stop
I thought I knew this tune
How can I KNOW
Barely crawled out of the muck
You are a slave or a master
You should be fine with either
I can not believe in anything
I can only stay for a moment
And move on to the next moment
I see and feel the threads of my future
Reaching back into me
Hungering
This was the moment of choice
No more choices
Only what IS
I seek naked
Nothing to hide
Nothing before me or you
In my nakedness I feel no shame
I see you in yours
And finally I see
We are the same
We are One
