neighbor’s dog, changed

he gets a greet and treat
every morning

last time his back legs fell from under him
when he jumped for a scrap of meat
his eyes changed
his eyes changed as his legs went down
his eyes rolled back slightly, towards his hips
his head cocked slightly, towards his hips

today I’ll start putting his treat
in a dish


If you’re like me and you care about nature and your relationship with nature, here’s a site worth your time: 



ears can relax again
A back to 4-3-2 Hz
sound of the garden


This poem makes reference to the movement afoot by many musicians to return to A = 432 Hz tuning. This tuning is the traditional one used for millennia. It was phased out after WWII in favor of A = 440 Hz, against the wishes of large numbers of musicians. The older tuning, according to the information I’ve been able to find, harmonizes with nature and our bodies. To me it is both more beautiful and more healing than current standard concert pitch. If you’re interested to know more, you can find out more here: 

 Audacity software allows you to switch music you have on your computer to 432 Hz tuning, and there are also 8 Soundcloud groups posting 432 Hz muxic: Hz
