Absolutely as a mountain

Vast, ancient, complex

Unexplored by my eyes


Climb, I, your climate zones

Your staid steadies my feet

How am I to take nothing

This all you wish to give

Inhale a meditative Love

Exhale acceptance, heart

Come away untouched


They Touched

I heard him begin to breathe deep
Even breaths
Slipping away into sleep
Garrison Keillor on the radio 
If there’s ever a doubt
That the universe exists 
As much in us as we in it
Watch and listen
To a child
And a storyteller
At the same time


This second 
Gone now

gone, gone, gone, gone, gone

Grab another 
Hold dear all you now hold

hold, hold, hold, hold, hold

You’ve now cause to pause
But not your breath 

breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe, breathe

Release the plaguing 
Steal sight of this time’s shine

shine, shine, shine, shine, shine
