Foreword

These books contain a form of free verse poetry, opinions based on observation, and some humour and imagination, engaging the heart as well as the mind. A critical look at many current issues intriguing and plaguing man. Spirituality, interaction with nature and environment, social changes, dwindling resources. Well worn issues now, indeed. But the poetry and other works in these books gives this subject a different perspective. I daresay that here we can find a "higher" vantage point from which to look at ourselves within the cosmos.

Who knows but some of the ideas in the books may get you inspired to do that thing you always wanted to do, even if this comes in a very small way, to make your corner of this world a better place to be in. Who knows but you may realize your little corner is a really nice place to be in after all.

It's all about life, if at times expressing life "outside the box" as the saying goes.
Chaotic Thoughts

Observe thundering waves
crash upon a rocky shore,
Hear the winds howl, tossing foam,
pushing brown sands to frozen waves.
Huddle against a smooth-worn rock
and feel the trembling of the Earth
with your tired, aching body.

Should I end my life now,
you ponder within:
leave this darkened place?
What use am I to this world that does not hear
words I pour from a broken heart?

Should I end my life-long dream
of planting seeds of wisdom
using the written word to touch
hearts open to receive
a million answers to their one question?

Should I give up the struggle now;
quench the fire that burns in my soul?
I look up to see a white gull
skimming the towering waves,
up and down, sailing the currents,
peacefully, gracefully, playfully
as one with the wild winds, unafraid!

Why couldn't I playfully navigate
for another day at least, just one more day
the chaotic madness of man's system
and live to write just one more line?
A Look Into The Past

Cold icy blue eyes staring
from the far side of the bed:
how many times have you told me now
you don't love me -and asked:
"Why don't you just leave?"
I can't answer you...
I don't know if I love you -
did I ever?
But there's the kids: the family,
the loans, the job, the normal,
the expected and unexpected:
a chance to help and serve maybe?
I've held on this long for values
I once believed to be inviolable;
necessary as food on the table...

But when you took in a lover
I suddenly understood:
even a very short life
can contain great cycles of surprise;
incredibly fathomless pain.

I hope you never have to understand
what I'm saying ten years later:
I've travelled so many deserts
crossed so many seas
tasted the fruit of many a lifetime
of an ordinary man: you set me free
to learn about life on other planes
-I thank you, really -
but I've done enough of that
for the four of us to carry on.
A Naturist

Human nakedness
draping a sun-drenched shore:
Ah, the shame, the sin!

Human nudity walking free
on a shore caressed by gentle waves:
Ah, the wonder of it, the stimulation
the thought brings!

A naturist doesn't ponder these thoughts;
life is to be enjoyed, not dissected
not judged right, wrong, or measured
but lived in the wonderful moment
of pure enjoyment: let what comes just come.

A free being learns to cherish
the true beauty of personality, character;
to fully enjoy the companionship in another
while appreciating in openness
the sheer excitement of the human body
unbound from the disease-ridden rags
of passing times.

So, I say,
rejoice! Be not shy, be not ashamed
to express your own passion, your love of life,
your freedom found in simple nudity
among others of like mind.
End the hypocrisy and repression:
join in the great awakening.
A New Path

Beside a crystal stream,
I sit and wonder:
why feel so unsure of self and life
on verge of entering a new path?

A gust of wind, a moving treetop
and in deep blue sky an eagle soars;
it seems we touch in mind -
in whispered thoughts he says -
“Everyone feels unsure, afraid,
thrusting out into the unknown:
try jumping from a nest with wings untried!
Just remember you asked for this path;
that your poetry would soar above the clouds.

New paths, new experiences, new feelings,
strange faces, foreign tongues, unknown lands,
altogether overwhelming sensations:
be sure of this: all who fly stood where you stand!
I, Spirit Eagle, watch over you.
I understand your desire to fly
coupled with the fear to try.
When everything says: “Impossible”
know that the goal is within sight.”
A New World Beckons!

Go, run, barefoot
where there is no path;
do not strangle your feet
with industrially-made shoes
or anchor them in synthetics.
Swim and run nude freely
within nature's sacred realm:
laughingly leave the tattered clothes
which a society’s shame,
imposes on itself!

Like the sorcerer of the sky,
fearlessly lead violent storms
to clean and renew life on earth;
strengthen your faith in life’s lessons;
then simply teach those whose
desire is to learn the trade.

Simple lessons teach appreciation
of life on the organic level;
the goddess energy.
Within her we shall enter
a beautiful new world
prepared by those whose faith
already brought them along
this ancient and renewed path.
A Place Of Beauty (Revisited)

Create an island
where waterfalls of joy,
tumble into blue pools
and call that 'peace;'
where indigo nights
pierced with fiery stars
intensify the velvet beauty
of dark jungle leaves
entwined around a tabernacle:
a snowy mountain top:
call that 'home.'

In the sudden awareness
of deep sleep
creative thoughts flow
unencumbered.
Re-create the moment
that passed by unheard;
that was lost yesterday
behind the blare of a commercial.

From your dream,
find focus,
discover passion
and dare create
a new reality:
call that 'tomorrow.'
Ain't Love Grand

Love -
can you feel the feeling it gives?
Wonderful thing, love, isn't it -
so warm, so safe, so comforting...
So... well, loving, isn't it!

What great things people do
in the name of love!
A man marries a woman
in the name of love
and she goes with it
for the same reason:
when she is found beaten to death
this is what he's got to say:
“I loved the bitch so much
I had to kill her -
she threatened to leave me.”

People love their nation
and in the blink of an eye,
they're off to war, bombing, shooting, killing
all in the name of patriot love
