pecking light

In
Full
Awareness
That
Shadows
Loom larger
In
Life
I
Mindfully
Peck
specks
Of
Shiny
Light

just breathe

Beholding
Trees in various
states
Of undress
Habitual greens
Shimmer now
glowing ember
Shades of oranges
Reds, magentas
to shades of deep
Ochre in final transition
state of awareness
A moment of pure
Realization
Nothing lasts
Forever
~
and as the sun
Sharply
punctures
All it sees
I
chant
to
myself
just
Breathe

eyes
constantly
giving once-overs
to now environs
find beauty
in every day
living
~
children
on scooties
anxiously followed
by mommy, daddys
~
the two little
girl friends I made
yesterday named
Emma and Chloe
at the corner of my
street – their shyly
diffident smiles
bowled over  my
heart completely
~
pumpkins
still lingering
on stoop steps
of brownstones
appear as drunks
nursing
hangovers
or guests
who’ve outstayed
welcomes
~
admixed
on pavements
are myriad candy
wrappers with ocher
leaves, remnants
of halloween kiddie
parades’ jamborees
~
head
never buried
in cell phones
rather open
to life
palms
these soft curly
moments
cuddling
them warmly
~

moments of bliss

moments
of bliss
happen
unexpectedly
time pauses
you enter
the
moment
becoming
it

Still Life with Bottles,Flask,white cup – Van Gogh
~
gone are days
when I bottled feelings
~ dues fully paid
I know no longer
bottle
~
life gouges
daily
indiscriminately
in schools, playgrounds
houses of worship
~
countermanding
I uncork healing
laughter gently
in measured
sprays
~
flask(ing) hot cold
transitions eschewed
evenly spreading jams
of joy on bread butter
mornings
~
atrocities
fill with infinite grief
blood no longer boils
hands simply cup themselves
for succor, healing, logic
~
compassion
now supersedes
passion
laughter
continuously spilling
~
