years

westwards

we fly

 

universe’s

grain –

in bloom

 

approaching –

departing

 

maturity –

future

past

 

whispering

in our hearts –

sovereignty

 

here –

a crescent

moon

 

wide

sky – deep

night

 

silver –

beauty

contained

 

noon –

surface of

water

 

the sun comes

in – at the

end of the day

 

sure

footed –

life

 

openness –

infinity

 

timeless –

time

 

today –

yesterday

tomorrow

 

above and

below

the surface

material

and spiritual

becomes

water

 

loss –

sinking

sun

 

fate and

providence – earth

and sky

 

silence

within

sound

 

the light

of morning –

felt and seen

time’s

singularity

joy

 

birth

of

light

temporarily

eternal

 

departing

endlessly

departing

 

life’s

core

 

faceless

 

life –

sinking

 

a dot –

beautiful

 

two cries –

birth

and death

 

humanity –

reflected

 

continuing –

day

by day

 

the end –

unseen

 

the day of birth

the day of death

 

evolutionary –

the air

 

lullaby –

past and future

forgotten

 

complex –

simplicity

 

lake –

sky’s

earth

 

late –

a garden

blooms

 

wind –

incarnate

 

sculptured

beauty

 

still life –

afternoon

 

sun

transfiguring

 

silence –

before and

after

 

the birds

calling

as before

 

unjust

today

tomorrow

 

life

gives

 

a child

remembers

 

unseen

seen

unseen

 

seven

times seven –

liberty

 

mirrored

 

a forest

in

a garden

 

beholding

 

galaxy

giving

birth

 

daylight –

night has

passed

 

late

afternoon

 

home –

outside

inside

hands

 

fragments

of yesterday and

tomorrow

inexpressible

expressed

 

a moment

of

eternity

 

ripples

of light

 

light

birthing

light

 

birds’

home

on earth

as

in heaven

 

filled with

divinity –

seamless robe

 

golden door

 

God revealed

 

humanity

 

eternity

light and

shadow

 

neighbour

visiting

 

beauty –

in nothingness

 

writing

in gold

 

breathing

dust

and spirit

returns

 

a mystery

 

enthroned

 

ancestral

home

unknown

 

harmony

 

life

and

death

attune –

future seen

 

mirrored –

future

seen

 

life

like a dream

 

sky

on water

rests

 

a mirror

the sea

 

we hear

the sound

of water

 

silent

return

 

waves

forever

new

 

under the sun –

a flower

 

wind

moves

the leaves

 

violin

orchards

 

life –

procedes

and recedes

 

a prelude

a postlude

 

tasting

 

friendship –

crystalline

 

light

meeting

light

 

like a tree

a man flourished

where he is

 

northwest

red knot

 

blue on blue

 

clouds

travelling

 

swimming

into shore

 

one

divisible

by infinity

 

light

emerges

from darkness

 

sea leaves

marks

on the sand

 

entering

 

silence

in a

waterfall

 

human

radiance

 

water –

towards

the east

 

sky

on water

rests

 

a mirror

the sea

 

waves –

forever

new

 

under the sun –

a flower

 

made of

earth

and sky

 

north south

east west

home

 

water

near

 

circling

home

 

midnight –

today

yesterday

 

night

circling

 

within –

night

 

shadows

 

night –

a shadow

 

the sun

sees

the horizon

 

sunlight

finds

each thing

 

time

in spirals

 

yesterday

today

tomorrow

 

skies –

blue

and starry
