is fuel
but for me
its power can be transfered
into another form
for it to become useful

to all who attended tonight

to all friends and fellow gatherers
who helped make the evening
such a pleasant event
when It could so easily
have been cold and lost
thank you

hi swan

a good friend sent me a scan of a postcard
written in the mountains years ago
it was postmarked Duluth, MN
and was completely tripped out
I could still remember the moment
and the pleasure of letting go

yesterday this image seemed a
reflection on natures wonder
this morning that of utter destruction
then later just a friendly gathering
do creature that metamorphose
fear thier transformation

hi Deborah

there were moments today
that had a dreamlike quality
something to do with
a conversation
an image
and loss

hi micheal

the sight
of a full dumpster
opens my heart
to the thought
that life still holds
undiscovered treasures

IPhone delirium
has a generation
not standing on street corners
waiting to throw a dime into the slot
and laugh with friend for hours
i realize I am a communication t-rex

hi bob

our sewage drain
dancing like
the florida everglades

the sound of water
streams roll with subtle tones and layers
while the ocean breaths deeply and cascade into calm
but a lake is something that takes
to hear

Hi Janaki

wandering is like
putting together a puzzle
making connections
having conversations
observing and seeing if
the abstract piece you hold in you hand
will fit perfectly
at some moment

hi debra

my dogs eyes
are so kind
but still reveal her intention
to drink stale water
roll in fish carcus
goose poop
bring it home

hey paula

wednesday night was always trash night growing up
and we would gather up all kinds of goodies
the prized shopping cart wheels for go carts
or whatever else we found amusing
most of all though
was seeing stuff
once valued
now moving on

although as I write this invitation
I still have no idea how to pull it off

for a moment
when things feel right
joyful and magical
this day took the cake

hi harry charles

It seem endless
the dig
to discover the lives upstairs
and the lives downstairs
when we call ourselves

Do people ask
if the pig is related
to a swine

hey tim P

stepped out into the light this morning
after staring at the night sky through the window
all thing familiar looked fresh and transformed
by an ethereal presents I hadn't noticed before

hi Malia

a pigs work
thrills in scavenging the park
cleaning up the garbage
and feeling full
in the moons light

Saturday, May 2, 2009


you landed in my arms
10 years ago
like lightning striking
two adults
scared, tired and
elated by your beauty

hi kristin

an introvert
is like cold spring rain
gentle drops
bringing awareness to the fragrant blooms
allowing you to breath deeply
the fresh air
