Wisteria.


In June, the Jacaranda bloom. Loud, splendid in the southern California sun. In the Northwest, the show starts softly. Demure, delicate among the pines.

wisteria, the color of sun rays blushing … peeking shyly through the clouds at the rebirth of a spring day.

wisteria’s language is welcome spring!

The case for holding on.


On the craggy cliffs of Jamaica’s western shore, an out-of-body experience.

Looking out
luminous Caribbean bends and sways
black ink beckoning in darkness
foaming wild around fingers of lava stone.

How exquisite it would be to slip in
a smooth decent in silence.

sliding away from the Knowing,
release of muscle and bone, shaking off past and pain
flight of heart and mind, salt dissolving the no longer.

Pitching forward
breathing in brine and breeze
lulled by the sleep of forever …
but for that touch from nature’s hand
observing from just behind.

Turning away shoulder from the tide, the edge of night
pressing closely, pushing inward to the Truth of the Root
casting away of wicked thought, filling of well with water

urgent now,
revealing the case for holding on
in the glow of light and love.

Infusion.


The oil is olive
liquid luscious golden deep
already fresh with flavor and hungry for more

poured over fruit and flower, herb and spice
it breathes in the good, generates the heat

bathed in time, soaked in warmth, it transforms into
potion, at once olive and orange, new and gently made

a taste to savor, never the same as before.

The new normal.


Sun rises later, now
lower in the sky
Shards of light cut deeper across fertile land.

Just after High Noon peaks
End of Day squeezes the brightness down
into tight fists of Never Enough.

Yet,

What once delights mellows with old love,
potent and pure in its remains
ripples in satisfaction more subtle and soft,
stepping back from the heart to the gut without regret.

Feeling in the bones a release of grit and sweat,
moving with ease and shine

into a season of slowing down and letting go.
