Songs for Home

And the song rang out ‘midst the silence of the lodge I have sat in the pews of hundreds of churches Praised your name-Praised your name I have greeted Mecca more times than I can remember I have sat in the Zen-do with Buddha And you came you came So many sutras I’ve sung And posed ten thousand asana You were there Before I channeled the avatar- You counseled, “I am with you...

A Song for the Search

…And the song rang out ‘midst the silence of the lodge I have sat in the pews of hundreds of churches Praised your name-Praised your name I have greeted Mecca more times than I can remember I have sat in the Zen-do with Buddha And you came you came So many sutras I’ve sung And posed ten thousand asana You were there Before I channeled the avatar- You counseled, “I am with you...

Warm waves gently Lapping about us The summer current Partners in our play Again Daddy! Again! Nose to nose Pure innocence beamed And I wondered Who really was holding who? Are you ready? Yes Daddy…AGAIN! Leaving my arms Squealing Legs flailing Eyes so wide I’d thought they’d burst A masterpiece mixture Of Terror Freedom Trust I knew She knew Daddy will catch me He always...

Repurposing Birthdays

Celebrating the day you came into this world
 is fine But… Rather than ask How many years old am I or How many years do I have, Try Celebrating How many times you’ve told your partner,

Funny isn’t it…. How we’ve chosen To be… Led, shown, guided, taught, illumined, inspired…. While others choose to be…. Shoved, tricked, cajoled, re-routed, mystified, shocked, mocked, De-frocked… For as many paths, There are as many Directions… Up, down, this-a-way, that-a-way, in, out, time-linear, time-none And for as many directions there are as many Dances; We can choose...

No Choice

As we curled up Supporting one another (Now an effortless art form) Burrowing into sand Your head resting against my chest My arms wrapped around you We waited For the orb to Do its nightly Dance of retreat And as the setting warmth On the horizon This love of ours Had no choice No choice But to find us No choice But To swim Through the eddies of time and Space It had no choice but to shine Ever...

Some more words on Gurus

Many moons ago as I embarked on a a path in which hatha yoga was a very intrinsic part, a phrase came to me “Le Guru is You!” I liked it’s ‘flow’ its cute little rhyme and I created a character to go with it,  sort of a throw back to the generation of seekers that —- well for lack of a better term were “consciously unconscious”  Some 15 years (or...
