our lady at sunrise

an otherworldly glow
appears on the horizon
venus, eclipsed,
surrenders the sky
to another at dawn

at dawn

at dawn
seems possible...
hopes and dreams
long buried,
sleeping -
flutter awake
and rise
like fragile
bubble worlds,
newly formed -
for substance
to be inhabited

electric snail

every single species of
the animal kingdom
challenges us with all...
the mysteries of life.

chagall's mandala

i was born between heaven and earth...
and the world, for me, is an endless space,
through which my soul wanders like a little flame.

out of the blue

out of the blue
the words came:
let your dreams
be dreams again
stop mining them
for meaning
and so i learned
to take refuge in
the nightly asylum.
out of the blue
the words came:
let nature
be your teacher
and so i learned
to be still.
out of the blue
the words came:
draw a circle
and so i learned
the Spirit's voice.
