to catch a fish

Back to the Sea

I want to go back to the sea
where light and dark are one
– where I’m free, where I’m from.

Back to sea waits and wiggles
where the will to be
(not greed) trumps right and wrong.

A tiny fish, live one marvelous moment
or a big one, snapping up the little.
The sea sings, ‘the one who doesn’t know me is an orphan.’

I want to find the deepest space

listen to the sounds rising,
grow my wings.

in synch



Middle Way

I have found beginnings
of my middle way,
coming round full circle
after touring the world
in many pieces
and putting them together.
I can see truth and wisdom
on paths I believed
opposed my own;
what seemed contrary
belongs now in my larger world

where, almost surprised
I find myself centered,
somebody at home.
