Still Hoping to Free Poetry


Entranced in light,
we swim and fly into
your favourite station.

We glide into our seats
and eat glorious food.
Some of us fortunate
enough to laugh and smile.

We hike along rivers,
up to waterfalls, and
feel the soil dance and
sing, feel it's love swim
and fly. What is your
soil, your seed, your
water, your rays of
light? Stars from
other planets, sparkle
on water, during the
day, shining with our star
until it's much more than
shining - dancing, singing,
pausing. It's as funky as
unpainted paint on a canvas.

We enter the enlightenment
of experiencing bliss as habit
no matter what happens,
and still able to feel it all.
A feeling is not one dimensional,
it goes beyond 360 dimensions.
Bliss can be your habit, your way.
All the more alive for it, all the more
love for it. A mermaid King asks,
"Did you hear of the rain
drop that swam to the deepest part
of the ocean? What have the extremes
of life done for your soul? Did you
know you are always swimming?"
Rays of light dance into evaporated

water, on a journey from sun to land, each
moment, enough for a whole life, each
breath a miracle becoming one light.

I See Your Heart


It's in your eyes,
and your smile,
your sweetness,
your love for animals,
and love for the outcasts,
your love for God.

But I see it,
beating in your body,
your precious heart - reaching
for and accepting all that you are,
reaching your soul and extending
love to all that you love.

We Live How We Love Our Dream

At any moment the greatest comfort
Is Found where you Believe in the dream.

Invisible sky scents dance
Enmeshed in rhapsody deluge soothe
sky drawing love dancing bliss,
soul In one everlasting kiss.

Tragedy lashes us in dreams and the
Saddest most hurtful feelings
Happen and we lose those we love.
We are hypocritical and we embarrass ourself.

And then, we dream again, we learn
To live again, learn to smile and love, again.

A soul yearns for absolute presence, can you feel that?

Summer trees mist water from their core
As bark softens and moss reaches amongst evaporation
As it sails to cloud art formations; softest pour in storms .

We awaken our way and go to live a life,
One soul, to another soul, between one dreamland
And the other dreamland. We feel the water
Bless our eyes, we swim in deepest oceans
When we love. We accept all there is as present.
As every dream begs you for the most beautiful peace.

I really am hurting inside.
But, I still found some
enlightenment today.
Out of the storms came a baby forest.

Still broken and fragile;
these sprouts will grow
into vast trees.
Creeks will flood
to become rivers and lakes.
Sky will sing with vapour and
colours, thunder, and
the never seen before.
The ground will break open
and dive within itself.
Seeds of hope will spread
In the soil of a moment, a life,
A seed, rising to the light.

All the Love


Into at all this find all the bliss.
Unexcuse, can't stop flowing this,
wisest bliss, consciousness. A weave
it's wool through vapour and hands,
worn on the baby all winter, rays
shine louder, softer, melting the winter away
and green, sour, soil, new leafs, new beginnings,
water rising in plant, in light, singing to the branches,
in there forever, out the transition from dark to night.
A full moon, half empty empty, all in between,
until it's all one, precise it's bliss waiting for us
to embrace - now moment, embrace all the beauty,
all the love, and bliss-consciousness-give-receive-love
all the blessings we can feel, the, the real; all the love
we dance with all the love that's ever blissed the soul

Ralways, no fear, what to say it won't be perfect,
Rising out the water, gasp, splash reaches
Out into air, changing colors and falling into
Ocean, diving, diving, quaking into canyons,
Water filling up earth from it's core out to crust
We must be conscious of all the innocent life,
Everywhere within a woman and/or man seamless sings
Raptures. We are home again, where anything can happen.

It's all the love there has ever been
Hear now, it's in your eyes, in your smile,
it's All the fears, they enter at once
And are looked back as nothing,
But love, love always lasts, all the
Love that's ever happened graces you
Washes over you, the deeper the better.

A baby jaguar is born and trusts
It's mother, smiling, somersaulting,
It's sky singing Into sky, and water anyart,
Changing directions, tension, building
Deluges of unconditional love, we feel
The image and when we hear tem and see
Them when we intuit it, God-into it,
We take it all in as a tea and taste it,
Today's it's 20% sour, 15% bitter, salty 10%
10% bland, aromatic 20% 15% sweet, 10% anything.
It's the most comfortablest-consciousness,
It feels the best. Love enjoys life.

For Within You Anything Is Possible


It's all the love there has ever been
Hear now, it's in your eyes, in your smile.
fears, they enter at once
And are looked back as nothing,
But love, love always lasts, all the true
Love that's ever happened graces you
Washes over you, singing to the wisdom of your soul.

It's sky singing Into love, water becoming one with water
It's a baby surviving the winter, and every sweet gesture
Coming into consciousness and filling you with exactly
What you need within. The sky of your soul is changing
colors and shapes in your heart of water anyart.
Life changes directions, tension untensions, building
Deluges of unconditional love, to feel
The images of love in our heart voluminate
Smoothe like rain on soil as it rises through a tree all the way to the fruit and seeds.
It's that moment that made you feel most conplete, it's
Creating memories of glory at any moment because you have the
Power to do it, with the power of love, grace, consciousness,
And even if it's not that great, it's greater because you let all the
Love in your heart and soul help the moment, what a present.

We embrace the glory of love and drink it all in as a tea and taste it,
(((((((((((((((((feel it))))))))))))))))))))
It's the most comfortable-consciousness, comfort your consciousness.
All the love images in your soul to pause and feel it all,
Or taste just a little bit, of loves infinite bliss, to
Allow yourself to feel the best at any moment; because you can.

Some will quip this as ludicrous, yet this is for those that realize the source
Of love is available to us at any moment to empower and soothe the soul,
Providing all you could ever want and need and unbounding the possibilities of a moment.
Tragic that some will never believe in the power of love, the power
Of love as it is capable of doing anything, capable of showering each
And every moment with peace, with fulfillment, with completeness.
Some will never believe in themselves and doubt, attack, go against
The very love within themselves, turning a blind eye, a deaf ear
To the possibilities and wonders of their own heart and soul.

But the more we cultivate it and give it our all to feel
All the love that nourishes our heart and soul
To see love and light instead of negativity and trespasses.
To let faith complete it's work as
A little more love enters you, completing you, love
That is already within you, complete, fulfilled,
Content, at peace, it's a consciousness, an extra ingredient
To add, to soothe and empower any moment. It's all
The love that's ever happened to you, all the love within you,
Can you see it?!?! You have gone beyond the goldmines when you
Find all the love within you that can help you, in any moment.
No need for anxiety, fear, hate, anger, doubt, shame, when love is always
Avaialble to you. When you truly know love, you will be free.
The gentle love that helped make you, Hear to help you,
In any moment, love to add to any moment, to give you strength,
To soften your eyes, your smile, to make every moment more real, more beautiful.

Black lake water sings to her muse,
the sky and moon. She breaks over
and over again, losing and gaining - everything.

Purple lupins dance as they grow with travelling
water and wind, able to feel the eyes and
rhythm of it's lake. Lilies and Lupins gain
parts of droplets beyond the boundaries
of shores, walls, and floors, because water
can give more than she can for the life around her.

She becomes more than hues, more than water,
more than hydrogen or oxygen as passions
from earth and sky unite. Somewhere,
a teenager becoming an adult or an adult
deepening it's appreciation and awareness
for nature, connects with the cycles and
metaphors of a body - water, how
it becomes what it is. Some souls illuminate

on a more vivid consciousness and bliss on
meditations of rain, evaporation, and
how spring mountain waterfalls become
strong from winter, from stillness, as
they river into a lake, and back to a river.
Bliss is in the silent music amongst all this,
no matter how loud it gets. All the
water anywhere is one with the water
within you, because for it to be anywhere
it has already entered you, it sings to you.

There is a dance, an infinite muse, a source
of unconditional love, and an ultimate humility
for those brave enough to give uninhibited
thanks to the water, the art and wonder.

Beyond gender, beyond (the illusion that
there is) others, beyond fears, beyond desire,
and within you, your life, there is a need for
water in order to survive, for all that you love to be alive.

This water, this life, it must fill the bottom, the low
of lows in order to reach the top and become deeper.
This water, this life, it must have ripples and waves,
it must have silence and stillness in order to master
sound and movement, it must be itself in order to exude peace.

Black lake water that sings to it's muse
the sky and moon, is a representative of all water,
like the red blood in your veins. She reflects the beauty
around it because she receives it, embracing every subtlety.

There is an invisible music that soothes
everything, it brings rhythm to life and
brings us closer to the ineffable bliss
provided to a soul, in any moment,
closer to the oneness that heals us into infinite peace.

Can you feel it? the music of your eyes,
the music of your laughs and smiles, each one,
music of moon singing to the bodies,
and guiding the tides, the music of sun rays
of life entering flora and dancing with water.

Can you see it? the music of cloud singing
within cloud, drops of rain and slow dances of vapor
infusing the music of the air all around as you
breathe in with your soft lung tissue,
in the music of your softest most conscious breaths.

There is an invisible music we all can see,
an unlimited source of therapy, it moves as waves move,
like waves of a soul, like waves of hope after hopelessness,
waves of music with eyes like a human giving all it has
in the name of absolute being. There is a music in dilution
and the imperfection of life that is unconditional paradise.
There is music in all your mistakes, as they give birth
to more profound tenderness and grace, in the only way
your life could ever be amongst infinite ways to perceive.

Can you taste it? A music in the love within a garden as
fruits and vegetables grow and give all they are, from seed to root,
just to be; and the beauty in the need, need of water, sunlight,
air, love, flaws, and the need of we all have for eachother.
Can you taste it? the music of you as you choose
what your house will look like, what you will wear today,
the flavors with which you put in your food, in your teas,
the music in how your tongue and nose come together to,
send sounds to your brain and conduct a subtle song of what is,
the music in some meals that are never forgotten, the taste in
clothes as they touch your body on a windy day, and salt water,
the taste, the music as it enters your pores, and tears as they
slide along your face and to your mouth, the music in sobs
and the recovery from them, the music in truly tasting gratitude
for all that it is and all that it can be. We all taste the music.

Can you hear it? the silent music as it's pricelessness
gives you solace or bliss in any moment. Can you hear
the blood as it flows from your fingers to your heart, hear
your love enter another living being and never leave
because of how real it is. Can you hear the strength
of a river as it grows new waterfalls, no matter how small.
You can hear your soul grow, your heart change,
can you hear the music in being humble enough to be forgiven.
The music in what is total and the lack thereof.
You can relate to anything, explore newfound consciousness, all
the presents in the present because you listen, because
you believe in yourself and thus find the infinite spring of peace
in the rhythm of life, and how we are related to all of life.

Can you believe it? This music, as the invisible becomes
visible, as silence becomes the language to wash away
negativity and disbelief to compost and transform into testimonies
found in our eyes as they sing silent songs of our forever surrender
to positivity and light. Can you believe in the music of God's softest lights.
There are sparkles in the power that music has, an unspoken declaration,
able to reach us, in your greatest ways. There is a music in your eyes
as you look at your beloved, unforgettably in love, music in the moments,
being, the music of totally being. There is unity in the human condition,
something we all understand about eachother, when we've gone through enough
and made it out - alive, stronger, and able to love deeper. Music in how
a woman understands a woman, a man understands a man, a tiger
understands a tiger, and compassionate music in how life understands life.
Music exists in the infinite possibilities of a story, until all there is is just silence
and looking into eachothers eyes as it's able to communicate everything.

Soft heart freestyle, a river, the waterfall
singing dancing always a new story,
Always beauty. We travel the lands
of God's earth and we safari inside our soul.
We are all the water in the ocean, at once,
to find all the drops of love, every liquid
conscious of the love and oneness.

I have found a new music that wipes away all inhibitions and seriousness. The relationship with faith, bliss, art has deepened like the relationship with a soulmate. Art in anything and that gives peace when things are tough, art in your most unbearable moments, most sacred, most yes. Instead of it being labelled negative it can just be art and you can be an observer, perhaps even a lover, because fighters die, and lovers live forever. Ah, but bring me back to that music of the vapor and music of the soul, music of unforgettable. Fill me with your self-embrace. Let us be humble enough to dance with the water and air to travel from the core of the sun to the earth, protected by God and soft smiles we relearn about from our inner-child. The more I believe, the more beautiful it becomes, like ah, ah, like being a bird with my beloved, travelling to distant lands, doing any and everything, we fly where no humans had ever been, we fly across oceans and between mountains, we watch the sky receive the lights of love and hear unity sing into our spirit and infuse with the essence of our connection. We are the peace in anything that happens, because it's art, the bravery to pause and listen to the music in eyes. Then we go beyond peace and find consciousness, the illumination, the answer to what is greater than peace and bliss in a moment, we find the best way effortlessly and then we fail miserably, yet closer we are, because we smile instead of frown. Ah, I've needed this, this stream of sub-consciousness revealed, expressed. Oh and it's lovely, this ever-present music rivuleting silence as it flows wherever I go. I'm sorry we do not always listen to the forever ambassador: conscious love, the infinite sanctuary, yet, when we do, the experience of - being alive - only becomes more beautiful. You transform me as the words go far beyond these last visible words and travel with the persevering imagination of helpfulness and bliss, the peace in faith and art, stillness to find the ultimate ~ movement

4 Haikus for Tonight


The leafs have fallen,
Yet, one remains, holding on,
Reminding me of you.

Ice melts into spring
And flows down river, cleansing
All life's tragedies.

Baby bear wakes from
Hibernation, butterflies
Play with bear, cute sounds.

Winter sings love songs
To summer, each in a dance
Destined to spring, fall.

It's not just oxygen, it's love that we breathe.
We breathe love with all our art,
Every breath. We receive the songs of
Bliss - available to us - at any moment.

What a life we've lived, an infinite source
Of gratitude, just to make it here.
We stare into eachothers eyes and find
All the stories of our ancestors and futures
Returning to the endless blessing that now is.

Musicians, live music, fearless expressions,
As life goes on, and the music only becomes
Greater because we are more in-tune within -
With all the heart and soul we receive
It all and let it grace us like never before,
Because of how we breathe... love... Love.

We love like we breathe, the more
Consciously and absolutely
The more sacred and beautiful our life will be.

A mother and father love their child,
And we breathe like we are breathing for
Our children, for our most beloved
And the child inside of us
Looks with puppy eyes and cries because,
So happy, breathing in the love, ahhhhhj.

We see the love stories in our eyes and how
Tragedies helped us find eachother.
Enlightened, we'll never be the same,
Like water when it first evaporated
Into light, suspended and sparkling, waiting
Raining down on all of us, storms in a trance.
All life love soothing us, helping us grow,
Teaching us that
Every drop of water inside us is love;
No matter what we go through
We can always tune into the most
Beautiful songs within, at any moment,
Ahhhhj, yes, ahhhhj, because we breathe love.

For we are infinite just as every drop
in the ocean. Infinite like the love
In every breath, infinite like the love available
At any moment, because we believe,
And just believing is enough,
Because of how we love, and
Together, all we breathe is love... love.

Splash into Still


I've always been on the edge,
Born with infinite challenges,
Yet, even more blessings.

Everywhere I go, I'm always
Overcoming something
Absolutely shocking. This life soul,
These eyes, all they've experienced.

What is it? I can't go unnoticed
It's impossible for my heart to be quiet.
Calm and dramatically emotional
Everywhere I go, krazy flows.
It's funny and it's beautiful, never, ever, dull.

All this blessed entropy is constantly
Transfiguring me to all-being. Too
Many lessons must take accountability
In order to mold now to feel the best.
Sometimes I hear myself at 70, saying,
You gotta appreciate now even more,
Wish I could be the age you are now again,
You will miss it, savour all of it, go for it.

Inside the core of my being
I unite with all my edges
And Flood into peace.
I accept life - complete -
Unconditional love from bliss within
Oneness, with the first and the last love
No matter how far over the edge
I am, it's all beautiful suspended
In be and just being - is enough.
