that moment when you paid attention to yourself and found livingness in the subtle surroundings

In the silence of nighttime,

In the entrancing drone of distant air conditioners and fans,

Enchantment sparks its way into life –

Life itself becomes alive in the simplicity and beauty

Of experiential potential and the creative imagination

That breathes meaning and delight

Into each moment of mindful awareness,

Into the true dreams of your heart.

Oh, have mercy, you savage beast!

Mid-day hours of sworn peace and beauty quiet

Spoke to art of the Romance of Life in its splendour.

The gentle breeze caressed the leaves outside.

The chirping birds’ melody broke through the glass door,

And nomad clouds followed the trail of the whispering wind.

~*~

Oh, have mercy, you savage beast!

I heard the calling in the garden of bliss,

Close to nature’s wonders,

Cradled by nymphs, kissed by fairy lips

Between reveries of light beams.

I felt the calling, and to honour it,

I deemed it worth the working –

That if expression would suffocate,

In loving it would find salvation,

Birthing the harmonious translation

Of natural delight with each breath endeavour.

~*~

Oh, have mercy, you savage beast!

For all the moments weaved by flowing serenity,

For all the moments blest by heartfelt sublimity,

Silence now the vertigo of your haunting!

In this land, corresponding,

Is the Goddess of Beauty and Love

Rightly enthroned in grace and glory.

You are the shepherd of form and final polishing.

Legacy of the Grotesque

The wind-beaten lake was beset by offshore storms of confounded and weeping veils. In the midst of the tempest, awareness rose enraged to calm the waters, and the mirror-like lake became a reflection of an alternate state. All knights gathered under one plate, one flag, one creed to sustain: one-pointed laser stare beyond the conceivable extent; thus, the voice was the wordless wordly observant who severed the umbilical cord of the pre-conceptual which sat in the cave of his own reflection to execute the ways of consolidation.
