Nothingness surrounds
Nothingness is everything
Everything surrounds

19 August 04

Masses swim about and swallow blindly
When they’re fed the lines.
Liberation is the stated goal
Subtly liberate soul from body and mind.

As time slowly passes on the front
And hearts become cold with fear,
As hate expands like a gluttonous waist
From Canaan to Kashmir.

Devil prophets holding innocent hands
Like coyotes leading sheep
Whispering lines in ears so green
Of rewards gained in eternal sleep.

Drums of violence beat incessantly
By those addicted to the swell.
Addiction never satisfied
But by the tolling of deaths bell.

What will it take to quell the rage?
When will the silence sound?
The price that’s ultimately paid
Is buried in the ground.

So now in silence graves are dug
And souls are laid to rest.
All that was built has been destroyed
Under the eagles crest.

Like sponge to water,
I, absorbing the Dharma,
Yet to saturate.

When life controls mind,
Compassion is tied in knots
Practice is refuge

ON THE DEATH OF C.R.

Moon hangs low in the Eastern sky.
Stars shine from horizon to horizon.
A shiver runs down my spine
As I hear of your passing.
Even the superman is impermanent
Whether flying through the heavens
Or riding in a steel chariot.
What karma could have brought you here?
What incorrectness of what universe
Could have sent you this much suffering?
But you held your head high
And challenged
Our views,
Our perceptions,
Our whole state of being.
Now you travel from the human bardo
To death and rebirth.
What fate awaits you
Is yours to decide, but please,
Take nothing with you.
Leave it all
And see the truth of who you really are.
Embrace emptiness
As there’s no need to suffer anymore.

YOUR GHOST STILL HAUNTS MY HEART

They say it’s better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
But like the knee scrape when I was six
I think I would rather just miss the fall.

But what’s come and gone can’t be undone
That ship was torn apart
Even though no storm blew down
Your ghost still haunts my heart.

I sail on from day to day
A soldier of pop art
But I’ll never sail calm seas through life
‘Cause your ghost still haunts my heart
Yes, your ghost still haunts my heart.

Can you hear my cry for freedom?
Please leave your clinging host
An imperfect heart lies in my chest
That sails that lonely coast.

I sail on from day to day
A soldier of pop art
But I’ll never sail calm seas through life
‘Cause your ghost still haunts my heart
Yes, your ghost still haunts my heart.

My dark and dangerous secret
That can never calm the seas
My personal shipwreck has gone down
My heart, the casualty.

So now I raise the main sail
My voyage continues on
And though I sail 10,000 miles
My seas are never calm

I sail on from day to day
A soldier of pop art
But I’ll never sail calm seas through life
‘Cause your ghost still haunts my heart
Yes, your ghost still haunts my heart.

Fear arising…
Air!  Can’t breathe!
Oww!
Ahhh…Warm blanket
Fear subsiding…

Fear arising…
“But Mom, I don’t like needles!”
“Owww!”
Ahhh…Candy
Fear subsiding

Fear arising…
“Wendy, would you maybe…uh…
wanna go…err…”
Palms sweating
“Ahh…Great!  Pick you up at 7:00.”
Fear subsiding…

Fear arising…
“Wendy…will you…marry me?”
Heart flutters
“Ahh…you’ve made me so happy!!!”
Fear subsiding…

Fear arising…
“It’s time?…Quick!…The bag!…”
Hands shaking
“Ahh…It’s a boy!”
Fear subsiding…

Fear arising…
“Is this breath my last?”
Breathe
Ahh…life
Fear subsiding…

Fear arising…
“Is this my last breath?”
Nothing
Ahh…peace
Fear subsiding…

Fear arising…

Apathy greets me in the morning
And accompanies me on my way
Screen door squeaks open
As if it had something to say

Wander out to greet the sun
Catch a last glimpse of the waning moon
Ice on the grass starts to melt out of habit
Water will start down the hill soon

Watch it move
Because it does
Why are things the way they are
Just because
See the world spin
No reason, no buzz
Why does stuff happen
Just because

Care wanes when traffic stops
Temperatures begin to rise
There’s no difference between you and me
A few truths mixed with a few lies

There’s no real difference between here and there
Just the shading and colors used
Love and hate in human stares
Only eyes change hue.

Watch it move
Because it does
Why are things the way they are
Just because
See the world spin
No reason, no buzz
Why does stuff happen
Just because

Thoughts blink, mind thinks
Squint your eyes and look real close
Do you see the thought behind the thought?
Does the one behind that show?

Tide rolls in and out
Mind’s ocean waxes and wanes
Finger cut, blood flows
Why do I feel the pain

Watch it move
Because it does
Why are things the way they are
Just because
See the world spin
No reason, no buzz
Why does stuff happen
Just because

Clock stops
Time drops
Out of view

You and me
Nothing free
And here’s your clue

So here I am
An open book
I’m wide open
So I have a look
I’m hiding nothing
lay me bare
I’m offering
My life to share
With you

Tears fall
Learning to crawl
Just trying to make my way

Earthquakes
Heartbreaks
And having nothing to say

So here I am
An open book
I’m wide open
So I have a look
I’m hiding nothing
lay me bare
I’m offering
My life to share
With you

Child cries
Father dies
Just searching for a sign

Empty soul
Growing old
Everything is always cured by time

So here I am
An open book
I’m wide open
So I have a look
I’m hiding nothing
lay me bare
I’m offering
My life to share
With you

Spinning around
lost and found
Can’t tell up from down
Going round and round
pound for pound
to the resounding sound
of dwindling souls
stoking the coals
then chopping down the poles
of strife and life
thrusting knife, after knife, after knife.

Can I take this
pain then bliss
from my love’s kiss?
I must insist that you know
how much I feel dissed and pissed
at the risk to my heart.
To be apart and
unable to chart
on any map the crap
that saps my spirit.

How will we repair the dispair?
Fair? Not fair?
But no spares allowed.

So what’s all the fuss
with us
that we scream and cuss
and explode like a blunder buss
when we fit like hand to glove.
And yet, we push and shove
when all either of us want is

LOVE
