Slate and Walls

Every day it is important to choose at least one moment to explore so deeply,

so intently,

that you see the play of all your senses

and the activation of your mind’s own responses to the relationship you are accepting

with that place and time and state of being.

10 Joyous Moments

Recalling 10 forgotten joyous moments

I sometimes challenge myself to recall 10 joyous childhood moments

…in sequence

Without the interruption of shadows

or fears

or shame

or distress

Or any of the other feelings which trap my adulthood

in that moment

in those moments

and sully the rest

I imagine my relationship to those 10 moments as the key to my relationship to my manhood, to my vision and power and humanity

Prainha

Nothing but to hunker

down

And let the cold push us together

thighs upon thighs

lips upon lips

and slow holds

and minor shifts

Versus blankets

and armor

and forgetting all the in betweens

of needing to wrap a feeling

in feelings

Just warmth

and deep bass beats

love and no love

while the wind blows

and a tree falls outside
