The Dead Spot

Walking Into The Abyss

Courtesy of: RiseEarth

There is a moment rarely found
Between hope and fear
Where silent eternity abounds
Unborn, limitless and clear
Where worlds and words fall away

This is where life is truly lived

Stepping from the edge of thought
The abyss greets one and all
From paths always fraught
To embrace the dead spot and fall
Awakening in the dream

With nowhere else to go





Finite Lines


From here to there
Life seems
Beginnings to ends
Stitched seams

We were, and are
Then not
It always seems
Lives forgot

From one to another
We dream
For another’s hope
Life leans




The Final Step


They say I am an odd one

Never fitting the square hole

Dismissive, and done


They say I am disconnected

Alienated to the world

Maybe mentally affected


Yet I am only this

Seeing beyond the words

Never a detail do I miss


And I love this world

Never so connected

The foundation unfurled


Every moment

I live to the last

Never did I own it


I used to see

I used to know

I used to watch


A simple shift

From watching

To being


One step


Now I am










Seeing something bigger

Beyond you

Is humbling


In perspective issues fall


A life so full of beauty

Calls to one and all

If we but heed the call


And I am here


Witness to creation

A world forlorn

Every sun and moon rise


A heart reborn



What Matters


Why can we not begin each day as if it was our first?

Why do we carry, a dead past forward?

That is gone, and this is this

I greet you anew, as you do too


Past never was

Only now

Face to face




This moment eternal

Past, Present, and future


Never in time

Not infinite, as distance

Only here and now


Stringing thoughts

One to the next

A line is drawn

From here to there

What never was is

An illusion for us


Birth, Living, Death

Always in time

Just not now, someday

Yet, if all of life is here

If it always was

Then maybe, just maybe


We were never born

Never as we thought

And never die

All the universe

Contained in this moment

Everywhere is now


So we come and go

Thinking we may know

But never what was so.
