Hello

Hello little shadow being
I can hear your heart beating
Quiet, Listening to the Pleading
All these dreams
can bear repeating
These dreams of future and of Past
All these doors winding down Fast
And as these Nightmares creep ever closer
This endless darkness extends ever lower
Music makers, dancers, shakers
Lovers, singers, new creators
Amid all this violence, find the peace
Amid all this chaos, find release
And like Enkidu, we're all half-beast
In the dark shadows, we'll find peace
And as the new towers are built on the past
Already crumbling, obviously won't last
Built ever higher, built ever fast
We watch them go up, quietly laugh
Hearing the sirens calling and lulling
all of her soldiers to wall themselves in
And many of them obey
Because the Gods say
We are all Going to
Die One Day
Judgement will come, Satan will too
And Fenrir and Loki, to just name a few
Taking us down for all of our sins
Have we been good, or should we start again
Are we sinners or are we saints
It only matters who holds the paint
If Hermes sees us, may he send a snake
or a coyote, a trickster to take our place
The Halcyon days
Begin as they end
The Fairies and Magic
Make Reality Bend
We've been so asleep
and stuck in the past
We're here once again
Waking up at last
hey arjuna
hello christ
waking up
on this good night
hello Ra
hello God
We're all Princes
Noone's not
hello buddha
hello saints
get your pencils
and your paints
paint and draw
breathe and live
make a new world to give
we're all saints
we're all saviors
life as beauty
not as labor
we have the key
we're at the door
we need nothing
nothing more
hello brothers, hello mothers
walking down the road
no other
goodbye here we're at the end
hello again, wake up, my friend
Run and twirl and move like mad
there are no mistakes to be had
The time is here, the time is now
nowhere we must be somehow
Hello you
Hello Me
Create a new
Reality

Deep Ecology Philosophy

It never stops
Becoming whole
It's Something
that can not be controlled
The water filters
through the wetlands
through all the zones
desert to riparian
The air it blows both east and west
Blowing hard, then quiet at rest
And fire and Earth and Sun and Moon
Listen to them and feel the boon
Ecology is
all about life
Everything included
This place is rife
With fungi
and algae
and bugs
and more
With trees
and birds
and lichens
and scores
of sedges
and grasses
and flowers
and bees
and people
and lions
and rocks
and reeds
all communicating
Interrelating
and all playing
with self organization
The Mouse chews the nut that shelters the bug
That crawled through the soil
That held the tree snug
And up in the tree the Owl hunted the mouse
and swept down upon him, perched on his house
These systems are here
already being steered
Rocking the way
No hands on the wheel
Geology, Biology, Chemistry and Life
Take it all apart, Dissect with a Knife
Shadow upon Shadow, down the rabbit whole
Complexity neverending, never going to be known
Open up our eyes, really see the light
The new philosophy is the only way to make things right
And when we return to Gaia, the one great entity
the skies and the earth, the interconnectivity
the vision of all
one under the sky
not a machine
a complete breathing being
we live drink eat, we breathe fly sleep,
we drink the same water
we walk the same paths
as we go into the future
we look back to the past
have you ever wondered why
as you look at the sky
what makes you smile
what makes this worthwhile?
if you listen, it speaks
bright blue streaks
songbirds who tweet
the wind in your hair
the feel of the dirt
the soil, the earth
the smell of the trees
the pollen, the bees
the tastes from the fields
the power to heal
the sight of the sun
and feeling as one
the feel of a touch
being whole in enough
the taste of pure air
so clean and so fair
the wind and the rain
do you feel the change
the seasons, the trees
the southerly breeze
the valleys, the hills
the path to the will
the wolf calling loud
many voices all proud
the water, the rain
the wind like a train
and fire at night
quiet burning so bright
the path to nowhere
the colors the sounds
the smells all around
is it your senses, your tastebuds
what lies between up ahead or above
and knowing the connection
the breaths that we take
we're all here together
one destiny, one fate

We live, we breathe
the world does not stop
It can not be dropped
It wants to be whole
Ecology's Something
That can not be controlled

The skin of the Earth
It's there in the Dirt
The Heart Beating Slow
Magnetic Below
Maybe it's Living
And all that it's giving
Whats running the show
Will we ever know?

We live, we breathe
We feel, we see
and the world never stops
the way can't be dropped
It wants to be whole
and it's something
That can not be controlled

Dream

Dreams like the fog
slipping off in the morn
Slow like a bog
Bubbling it warns
It's Patiently waiting
'til the thunder is born

There's lightning and rain
there's running and sweating
Repeating this training
Seeing but letting
All forms turn to shadow
All things dissipate
I'm Not really here
I'm Not really there
Who am I, I don't exist anywhere
Sit back and stare
Be safe with no care
Sit fully clothed, naked and bare
And sitting with safety
all through the night
i can not be blameless
but maybe I might
Play in the margins
outside the lines
Become nameless
Out past the signs
Who are you
The voices all yell
I hear them tell me
I'm not well
Don't touch me
and don't get near
everyone, everywhere
Hatred, fear

And the walls crumble down
the blasted out drown
With blood flowing red
but not near to dead
Right there it stands
the white pure, simple land
but i still hear something
don't pretend that it's nothing

I hear a call once again
wake up from your dreaming
I'm watching you sleeping
There's hope here, my friend

Ghost (a poem)

Test

You're not Weak

They'll tell you you're weak but you're strong
They'll tell you you're lost, but you've been home all along
They want you to stop, to give up the fight
They want you to hide there in safety at night
They say there are rules, they say there are ways
Close it all down, no more hope in this day
They want you to stop, that's why you keep going
They want to stop you from growing and knowing
They think they can win, but it's all a dream
They think they are clever, but they're too naive
