The Place to Be

Outsiders,

This
is where
One should
aim to be;

Strive
for such attainment,

Outsiders,
This is
The place
To Be.

This is
the promised land.
In this place, one is free.

Pay, apply, to be
in.

One might
even

Sneak;

Risk life;

Risk limb.

Earth Apprentice

The air is making music
A symphony of forest
Lakes, stream, ocean,
Crow line grass in meeting,
Rabbits burrow,
Fawn spring
Eagles soar above,
And her eyes read the nature
A foreigner
In this setting
Still she knows
This dampness in the air,
This heat,
Does not
belong so far north

Despite her domestication;
disconnect
From pieces of
the message
she does not get,
her animal instincts
engage
And she feels
the need
to learn

This return to nature,
She feels through her core,
She is the student,
And here she is studying.

Lunar Control

Last night,
The moon,
Fully naked,
In all its glory,
Stunned my sight

As I drove a winding country road
Turning
‘Round a bend,
abruptly,
there it was

Appearing,
As if a coy child,
Awaiting
To
Surprise!

I do not wonder,
Why we came to worship dieties,
Of lunar control,
How else imaginable
could new minds
concieve
of such a spectacular image
Of heavenly beauty,
Of wonder,
Of the possible truths of its purpose
or origin,

I am humbled in my size
and finitude,
As its magnitism
Becons attention
From my gaze,
My mind,
And body.

The tides in me
Move in and out
At its command
From the other side of the globe,
You surely feel it too.
