It Was A Dream…

I think this is a true story.

Late night, not sleepingAwake, thoughts keepingMy head from finding restIn bed’s embracing nest,Ev’n though my pillow’s softIn midnight’s quiet loft. So, lotus sitting, chanting OM…I let my Self begin to roam.Recalling that it’s been said,That astral bein...

The Interview of Invocation and Invitation

As if Compassion were a Storefront with a Sign that says Inquire Within or Help Wanted. Every Being is dealing with more than you know. Be Kind Always.

Peace be upon you; And also with me - -- and all within me Imagine being many A pantheon of souls A galaxy born from a stray dream An idle thought turned semen seed and grown Expanding facets of self -- blossomed to full And flowered to flesh of mind Matu...

Whispering God's, day ago prayers, if I could only touch your facewithout leaving fingerprints, for death is a naked shadow without layers of clothes, in old photographs,from your body to my mind in life's curiosity and curios,of our love's fancy serendip...
