Three Poems by Eileen Klinck

Virtual Dream I am a pixel. Dancing energy potential Blinking/Replaced In Kaleidoscopic pattern. Ever changing hologram. I am the ocean out of which All arises. The wind, the rain, my breath. Vast the screen, Small the illusion— Light, dark flickers of duality. Life dances joy and sorrow, The stories Whirling leaves circling, Round and round. […]

Essence of Sun and Earth

by Vijali Hamilton I Golden we are, sitting on our throne of bark and earth, bathed in sunlight, smoldering in the cauldron of life. Essence of sun and earth flows through our veins, radiant as the child taking her first look at the world— earth in her mouth, and mud between toes. Source from above […]

Two Poems by Judith, Hermit of Sarada

Mother Moose Some days I feel as happy as a Mother Moose— with her face as long as the day, and her eyes as wide as the sky: on those days I feel free and untrammeled, footloose, like her when her baby has finally struck out on its own; because you just never know, when […]

Looking Up

by Richard Simonelli Good, bad, happy, sad, many flavors, a single taste. Realize the limitless through limitations, within limitations. Confusion dawns as wisdom without eliminating confusion; sorrow, negativity, anger, despair they flicker in and out. Single flavor, single taste, Whole Awareness is radically unconditioned without provisions or proviso: only you will know when you know when you be. Just […]

Dark Knowledge

by Russell Atkinson Avidly watching the external show, we do not know we do not know, and so, within ignorance seek to find, release from the shackles that bind, as gripped by pincers in god’s hand, and beaten on time’s anvil till we understand that we know nothing as it really is and every piece […]

Two Poems by Jeannette Speiden
