Winter 2015…

season of much learning

as I spend the

below 0 degrees

days

at my window altar

pondering

ruminating

gazing out upon my

river

now buried below

huge beds of ice

both it…my river

and

I

enduring

winter 2015

one of the coldest

in the history of this

wonderful

city

of

my

birth

long hours beholding the beauty of my

wintered river

a beauty so different from

the lushness of summer

and bodacious riotousness of fall

digging

digging

deep below the frozen tundra of

my inner iciness

to the stuff kept hidden

by a heart

that would not

feel

time

isolation

permitting me to bore deeply

into the frozen corners

of my heart

winter of excavating the

icy caverns

of my soul

diving deeply

below the surface

of my life

seeing

the self-deceptions

not visible

in summer’s light

or in the dusk of

fall

now laid bare

in the cold

dark

icy

sub-waters

Just Breathe…

there is Something

that will take care of us

lovingly

abundantly

so that our stay here on earth

is filled with

more joy than sadness

more pleasure

than pain

This illusory

intangible

It

this wispy

holy energy

this Spirit

of all things

cannot be found in the

3-D

all that we humans

have been searching for:

someone to love us

someone to care for us

to treasure us

and treat us

as if our living

   matters…

all that we seek

can only be found

as we divorce ourselves

from this

addictive dependence upon

the world and its ways

let us learn to

disengage

consciousness

from the allure…

the hypnotic glamour

of an

illusory

man-made

hell

let us seek from the

True Source

closer than one’s heartbeat

waiting for discovery

   just breathe
