dreaming bigger


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

the universe keeps sending messages:

dream bigger

missing it at first

–heck, for a thousand times–

attending now



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?

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.

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.

The Soul Is Here For It’s Own Joy (robert bly)

Hi Kiwi,

Fret not!!

I believe our apprenticeship in poetical creativity is only just beginning!


Some of us are going to continue writing and sharing poetry. Some of us have been so deeply seduced by all the magic that we’ll never be the same again…and we need more friends to go dragon hunting, spell casting, fairy boat riding, incantation chanting with us!!!

I have one more page to write for the last half week–check back tomorrow it! And I’m working with some folks at Great Vow Zen Monastery to do something poetical. Maybe workshop. Maybe a week long summer residency….don’t know yet. But the conversation is under way!
