In the Span of a Single Step

It is noon and blossoms are falling

a bee beats its wings 600 times.

Back East a single snowflake sticks to the frosted window–annoymous

a landline phone, rings, inside the small study.

On this Earth, there is no place that nothing is happening.

A cloud devours a mountain, in its inch ward jaunt through Sky.

Across the world someone’s hand is harvesting a tomato

in the same town, a young girl is morning an unexpected loss.

In the span of a single step,

The tide recedes, ten thousand tad poles emerge from ten thousand eggs–simultaneously

One deer prepares for hibernation, and the other nurses her young.

Earth walks through one life

and into another.

Beneath my feet

a living dirt–that hasn’t thought to number the days and nights.

foul out

ViewPacific:

“The bottom of yummy is a long way down.”
On the other side of whatever we’re avoiding is the lovely freedom we gain from no longer avoiding it. And, there’s more!

Originally posted on Life as Improv:

More so than bliss,
follow the scent of something off
wrong, disgusting, foul,

phey, phew, phuck, phlulahlah…
what is rotten in your denmark?
don’t turn away.
Some little wrongness
can be just the thing to snag a thread
of you.
Then as you go about your day,
you will be unwinding the stitching
of you –
you
who can’t watch the world without a running commentary,
you
who separate all you see into piles
of good for you

and

not good for you

and
boring.

You can splurge into the good

until you see that nothing’s there,

but that may take a while

because the bottom of yummy is a long way down.

Inhale the stink until what is not so good

makes you soften into love.

Ready now, you can

dive into the nothing

until you begin to crave embody the stillness

already embedded in everything.

Upon your covered entrance

dreaming bigger

ViewPacific:

Dream bigger, and live bigger. The universe has enough space.

Originally posted on Sirena Tales:

the universe keeps sending messages:

dream bigger

missing it at first

–heck, for a thousand times–

attending now

wondering

hungering:

what would that look like?

the message surges

azure waves:

dream bigger~

dream bigger~

dream bigger~

hey, over here

what are we missing?

how to expand?

the universe keeps sending messages:

dream bigger

dream bigger

dream…bigger

When all the wisdoms voices, stopped talking

And I lost all context and meaning for my life,

understanding was a body posture, not a mental activity.–And fear, sadness

they too

paused their incessant cautioning.

not too concerned, with whether something was known

or unknown, feeble or demented.

All universities were forced to close,

as were many religious institutions who placed their emphasis

on scholastic knowledge and debate.

what do we orient to?

now that our books are empty,

too long dependent on others views and thinking–

as if truth can be gotten

then forgotten.

Disaster

Vapid. The temperature of the gods.

and I am hungry again, asking for your attention.

but I want freedom,

I want to free others

don’t box me in with your institutions

your forms and rules.

There is no shape for the human being

no color, no voice, no name.

what you see before you appears greatly

organized, planned, and perfectly executed.

perhaps this is true,

but equally so

is one massive disaster,

folding into another.

Hopeless, maybe.

but oh, the possibility

to subtract everything

from itself, and then divide.

innumerable infinity

so sweet,

you’ll have to share.
