New Work | New Thought

I'm introducing a re-designed website for my poetry, and this page will feature occasional new poems, or ones relevant to current situations in the world, personal or at-large. Maybe I'll include a bit of rambling personal philosophy as well, but none of it will be long as I'm a poor typist. And of course, all of it will have some relationship to soul and spirituality as it relates to living in this world. Just to get all this started, here's something written earlier this year:

TRYING TO SAY



Trying to say
the words that can’t
be said, not by
prohibition, but a kind
of inarticulation,
vibrations of the simple
way that all things are,
just present in the
silence of themselves,
a crystal flower to
wrap loose words around,
whose inner strength
is so immense
there is no way to lift
such weight and
carry it away:
its root the world entire
and us within it,
singing out our bits
of birdsong in
the morning air,
and by our being mixed
with all that is,
the richness grows and grows
until the gods themselves
bend down to gaze
upon this world
in wonder.
