Never Arriving

Day 3 Month 13 - 13 Moon Calendar

audio/video
never arriving

sailing the sea
afloat on the ocean
rising and falling
always in motion -

wind in the sails
wind in our faces
always we journey
vast open spaces

always between
never arriving
sharing a dream
awake and alive in

the feelings we feel
coming and going
simply surreal
to-ing and fro-ing -

it's been a long time
I knew you would come
'though lost in my mind
we'll always be one

sailing the sea
afloat on the ocean
rising and falling
always in motion -

Mind Streams

Day 1 Month 13 - 13 Moon Calendar

audio/video
mind streams   

osprey on its nest
the water
glistens in the Sun
it's brought a

calm reflecting beam
bright starlight
to Earth's electric dream
so we might

share this place with bees
in flowers
share this place with ease
its powers

awake awake awake
from sleeping
returning all we take
we're deep in

meditative bliss
and mind streams
Sun on Earth its kiss
with light beams

all the air we breathe
the ocean
the Earth, all we conceive
in motion -

I'm inside of you
you're in me
atoms and thoughts too
which spin the

moments day by day
as years pass
sunlight's beams and rays
all move fast

awake awake awake
from sleeping
back to sacred lake
we're deep in

meditative bliss
and mind streams
Sun on Earth its kiss
with light beams

Voice from the Past

Day 27 Month 12 - 13 Moon Calendar

audio/video
 voice from the past

to the voices of the future
a voice from distant past
the Sun, the Moon, some ancient trees
there's not much here that lasts -

crystal beings in slow motion
the rhythm of the sea
civilizations' rise and fall
a disappearing me -

electric currents flowing
through atoms, through the stars
the mystery of knowing
the misty vales of Mars -

children growing older
to die then be reborn
changing changing changing
not much time to mourn -

happiness and sadness
ideas in constant flux
the babbling of thought streams
mind balanced on time's crux

this moment now forever
watching life go by
the ever changing weather
laughing then we cry -

to the voices of the future
a voice from distant past
the Sun, the Moon, some ancient trees
there's not much here that lasts -

crystal beings in slow motion
the rhythm of the sea
civilizations' rise and fall
a disappearing me -

Wish

Day 24 Month 12 - 13 Moon Calendar

audio/video
wish

it's a never ending story
we sleep, we wake, we're more the
essence of our being
reflected in our seeing

absorbed in contemplation
responding to sensation
I wish you wished you knew me
I wish we could renew the

archetypal mind forms
both gods of sky and earth born
in imagination
the myth of home and nation

evaporates each morning
like dew in sunlight dawning
like rainfall's pitter patter
mind's endless thought and chatter

tells a never ending story
which starts before we're born the
essence of each being
reflected in our seeing

absorbed in contemplation
responding to sensation
I wish you wished you knew me
I wish you wished you knew me

Vision 22

Day 22 Month 12 - 13 Moon Calendar

audio/video
vision 22

there is no Sun
it's dark at night
in Earth's shade
there's just starlight

the Moon has disappeared as well
as mystic visions now foretell
a journey in to far away
from endless thoughts that do not stay

from 'I think I am' I think I think
to mind that's still which is the link
to everyone and everywhere
to everything, the sea, the air

the space above, the space between
the space within our thoughts which stream
radiating feelings felt
egos disappear, we melt

we journey in to far away
we journey in a beam, a ray
electric currents flowing fast
we journey to what comes from past

we journey to a Xanadu
a pleasure dome for me and you
where there is no Sun but still it's light
there is no Moon, there is no night

where mystic visions dance before
minds now stilled and there's much more
in the shade there's just starlight
yet still our minds are filled with light

radiating feelings felt
egos disappear, we melt

Poet

Day 19 Month 12 - 13 Moon Calendar

audio/video

poet (touched by Coleridge)

in a vision from the one
who sailed the endless sea
water water everywhere
but none for you or me -

liquid lapping soul entrapping
rhythms felt today
micro- macroscopic rapping
beings here at play -

in Xanadu a pleasure dome
decreed by Kubla Khan
shimmered in a vision
from a poet now long gone -

in Xanadu the waters flowed
through incense bearing trees
flowers filled with butterflies
and buzzing bumblebees -

time was measured by the Sun
and by the Moon at night
by the stars so far away
shining oh so bright -

time was measured by the mind
in thoughtfalls slow cascade
time was measured by the love
through us which was made

in a vision from the one
who sailed the endless sea
Xanadu comes back to life
just for you and me

Sky

Day 13 Month 12 - 13 Moon Calendar

audio/video
sky

a gentle wind, a breeze
slips over
around...along the ground
through clover

moving in a stream
caressed by
touching sunlight's beams
in Earth's sky

it tiptoes through the grass
and bushes
rustling all that's passed
it whooshes

between what came before
and after
in the evermore
there's  laughter

where happiness is free
for taking
I am you are me
we're making

a gentle wind, a breeze
slip over
around...along the ground
through clover

move in unseen streams
caressed by
touching sunlight's beams
in Earth's sky
