Step out of darkness into noon.
Grope the familiar flash-blind through white-hot spots.
Be Bambi fozen in the headlights of a celestial SUV.
See life awe-struck silver by merlin's staff.
Dare eclipse bare-eyed, distant fire inviting risk.
arms fly up in protective salute,
glasses, visors, tiny holes in paper squares,
appear to slow the speed of light
damp blazing glory,
mask naked alchemical wonder.
Careful now! Don't hurt yourself!
Split moment of blind sight:
worlds of darkness drop away,
You are bigger than your life.
You are the Light.
(excerpt from the Introduction)
The poems in this book are snapshots of my journey. They are slices of experience; beginnings, endings, blessings, challenges, confusions, revelations, deaths and rebirths, each a part of my evolving relationship with Higher Self. You may call this process by any name that resonates with your own journey toward meaning. For me, it is the excavation of the God-in-me from under layers of ego disguises, personae, roles, and stories assiduously collected during 59 years of life in my body...
here are some of my thoughts on the path I am dancing toward enlightenment. My inspiration comes from night and daydreams, meditation, time in nature, prayer, and other forms of Light shot into the busy consortium of my waking consciousness. Whole poem as well as seed fragments have often dropped into my head,like apples from a tree. When that happens, I write. Some of the offerings are solemn, some mystical, some celebratory, others whimsical. it is my sincere wish that you enjoy them and, perhaps, be heartened, awakened, inspired, and amused.
In any event, it has been my pleasure.
