We are

I am one with you
even if you
have done with me
I have no human enemies.
I wage word wars
with ideologies
that charge covers
and put up gates
between me and ME.

I see the Universe
in your eyes
I hear my son
in your cries
my brother
in your laughter
we are before
we are ever after
we are the atoms
of the right now
the eves of today
inside every soul
is The Way.

  5. Excellent tight opening lines, and great follow through. The war of idealogies kills all too many who think and feel, but centering in a joint humanity is a powerful medicine. Love Diana's pic as well.

  6. Thought provoking lines...I like the word play specially these:

    we are the atoms
    of the right now
    the eves of today
    inside every soul
    is The Way.

    Profound and well written. Thank you.

  8. Interesting contrast - apparently between the self arguing with itself and seeing a way to oneness with another/others. Nothing neat and pat here, but pain, and a glimpse of healing.

  9. ...me and Me is truly profound. What a 3rd eye?
    The whole point of an extra eye.

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.

Stargazing
