Hope: Future And (Re)Birth


again, after decades, my (un)reality
opens one door of many, my concubine 
of life’s necessities vanquished.

daylight peaks and wanes, darkness satiates, 
nourished and still;  it is the light of life, 
manifest within living silence. memory holds 

its germaneness in the ‘now’, becomes prophesy 
on linear moments beginning to end. those many ‘other’ 
doors remain closed. for now, how fortunate the future.

Highway In Ohio

A roadtrip was in order for Christmas, so from Rochester NY to Houston, Texas I began.  Day One got me to Ohio after a late start to the journey yesterday.  Rime ice appeared just south of Columbus, Ohio, so I ventured off of Interstate 71, and took a few photos of the glistening ice on a farm.

Architecture In Nature

Architecture is not planned, but random; 
not structured, but chaotic; 
not contrived, but natural; 
not fixed, but fluid.  

Nature is the original architect.

There Is A Moment

                                        being grateful:  being

                                        there is a moment
                                        within each moment
                                        when elements of life
                                        meld into a scene:
                                        sky and cloud,
                                        water and fowl, a
                                        million dying leaves that
                                        offer fodder for the grave.

                                        these visions are there
                                        for the taking.  we
                                        are but one component
                                        of the greater good.
                                        (surely it is good.)
                                        if memory serves me,
                                        this fleeting is a reminder
                                        that life is just that.
