accidentally cut my pericardium meridian, badly, august 2003

my heart
beat differently
in the days after

what I tore open
became
an instructive gash
fractal of love

before that sudden cut
I had wandered
always in fire
and no true heart
caressed my blood
that was the season

of my barren heart

now
an injury
I don’t know how

brought me water

now dreams could gel
into form’s fullness

dreams of
the zinnia’s stout mandala
the loon’s flutter-call
the hurricane’s ordered power
the butterfly’s punctuation
of air
the tree’s sidewalk-splitting growth

dreams of
the porcupine’s infective spines
the vulture’s telling circles
the mud’s layer of slime
the flies’ ecstatic swarming
of dog shit
the landfill’s long methane fart

How am I
to lay my treasure
at this world’s feet?

stillness after snow
even here, where there’s no noise
weight has its own sound

I love real weather—it’s looks, its feels, it’s smells. I am hopeful that we can preserve real weather on our planet, which is why I invite you to visit www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

I love seeing people survive and thrive, as well as nature! That’s why I invite you to visit this site and discover what you can do to stop climate engineering’s threat to your well-being: www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

I love the natural play of the elements on this planet and I want to see that play survive and thrive. If you feel the same, you can educate and empower yourself at www.geoengineeringwatch.org about a major interference with elemental play occurring as we speak, geoengineering.

fire started fast this morning
friends had me over on Monday
youtube is full of wisdom, once you learn where to look
I know how to play with words, and I’m getting better at it

I wish all my United States-based readers a Happy Thanksgiving. I’m taking a short holiday myself. I’ll be posting again on Saturday, November 29, 2014.

I’m also grateful to Dane Wigington for his commitment to what he calls “the common good.” I invite you to consider lending your energy and expertise to his work to expose and stop climate engineering at www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

windows snow-laden
in wind, corps de ballet swirl
my day to be still

My favorite video of falling snow features Tori Amos’ song “Winter”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y0nX_oXNnm

Did you know that much of the snow falling on us nowadays is created through a process called “chemical nucleation”? The chemicals used aren’t good for us or the biosphere. You can find out more at www.geoengineeringwatch.org.
