as an alien in a familiar territory, she could no nothing but mimic the cry of the others with the same purple plume. she loved the feeling of free flight and laughed out loud whenever she could. secluded in her effort to stay hidden, the others barely took notice of her strange complicated behavior, side-stepping the multi-colored cutlet with barely a missed step. finding her way to the other side, she notice the slight movement of soft brown grains of sand creating a sudden plication and then quickly disappear. unable to look away, she stepped closer, closer… soon sucked into the void of thresh her life forever changed in the shifting sands.

pillars of creation

prior to the change
it is essential to
shift into neutral

disagreeable thoughts
must be cleared out
absent presence
of all sour signals

turn off any
receptors receiving
incoming influences
of any kind

it is important
not to carry any
hidden nuggets
of negativity
affecting the
outcome

sleeping soundly
a catnap quiet
soothed the
transition

as water floats
and flows
so the mind began
to drift
in a sea
of vagueness

particles parting
feelings floating
memories meshed
forever changed

Train

Listening to the sound of the train traveling fast forward never stopped arousing the sense of freedom in her rambling simper heart. Resting impatiently she stared out the clear open window viewing the passage of seasons stirring within the fence of days known from sunrise to sunset. In-between those hours her companion would often turn from his engaging book and kiss her lips with a remote softness that left devoted desire unchecked. Smiling each time he would subtly assure her of their journey and the unfamiliar destination soon to come. Heading to a place she’d never known with a man she thought she knew sometimes made her want to turn another direction. Slowly the curtain of darkness disclosed the day’s end turning her thoughts back to the gentle movement of motion and remembering the vale of yesterday and how he spoke to her from there and the difference of him here now.

Mural

unraveling in secret
his heart did not see
the pull of a string

once tightly woven with
care and consideration
gravity gradually separated
the unity of a colorful life

appearing kempt in expression
the facade began to crumble
breath by breath held in a
hidden puzzle of restrain and hold
neglect took its toll

the healing tonic of lemon
vinegar and sweetened water
could not hold back the slaver of time
slowly cascading down the mural
of his picturesque life
