Approaching Sublime

I turn toward
Serene and pristine bluffs
rhymes in my mind
look for slants

I stand at the edge
And listen to life
Observe the constant movement
I have a need
To know the ledge

There is music
The limbs dance 
With the breeze
Above the trees
The clouds and sun
Paint together

Below frogs and crickets
Deer and birds
Sing their gospel hymns
And play without fear

Apparently fish think nothing of water

Alone and all one
I undress my soul
Of all things that no longer fit

The music has lyrics
It's a simple refrain
If God is infinite
There is nothing
And no one who isn't

Nothing is lost
Or gained
Even the pain
Is God growing

Here she comes
Here I Am
Expanding and contracting

Death feeds a new seed of life
Life and death 
Are husband and wife
I see no space between them

All ledges know
All currents flow
Toward their destination
In due time
They are sublime

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
