Mazda



Zoroastrianism has three major tenets:
Good thoughts;
Good words;
Good deeds --
And has roots in the Bronze Age, which
Predates most everything except maybe our VW Bus.
Its central force is Ahura Mazda.
Ahura means mighty.
Mazda means wise.
I claim no wisdom of my own, but our 
Car from this this century has air conditioning.
It is a Mazda.

Rain Lily


A single long event,
Earth so far, evolves
This rain lily
And humanity.
But what of what
Has not occurred?
I have no word 
For what is not.
And if a thought
That never happens
Never happens again,
Is that repetition?

Sweep Second Hand Redux


Some things
Are impossible
To find on purpose.
Composed
Of stunning antiquity
And futurity--
Particles, antiparticles
Shot from both
Ends of time--
palindromic rhyme,
To you and  me.
We seek  causality.

Over Rainflowers and For Love


I began a journey long
Ago,  am  old  now --
I know, I know-- but
Something strong, bold,
Gave purpose, emerged
Out of all --right and wrong--
All lyrics, songs in life.
Enthralled,  I  still have  some
Some strength  if  called,
Whenever  or  where, and
Shall in all my best be there.

Geometreefrogs



We collect on a canna lily leaf.
We compose a triangle --
Equilateral, like our society.
Euclid drew it from his mind.
Evolution left us somewhat
Behind there --we are mostly
Mouth, legs and guts and
Find triangles better-
Managed by our butts.

Still Untitled




  Untitled

Life caught in
Certain molecules
Fuels this thought.
Its trail of atoms
Causes change in
The past, future
And is what 
Happened last.

1970 Poem

[Wendyclip, 1970:]


We stopped on a
Steep little street--
Runs right down to
Dingle Lane.
They intersect 
At a drain and 
A narrow tunnel.
I believe this town
Began as a funnel.
