Consider the Lilies

How mountains are stars,
the way a willow kisses rock—
so fit your thought.

How the air has no need of wing,
nor water riffle, a fin—
so reach your stride.

Before saints sing Ohmmm
before even the teaching of stone—
so tell your voice.

Under mole dew,
aquifer of worms—
here litter your am.

Simplify, Simplify

    1. November 9, 2016, I learned that words are effective weapons to be used and used up and made into whatever we damned well please to make them. having a fool elected President was one of the most devasting–made up word here–and yet one of the most freedoming events of my long and banal life.

      1. At least he did some good – if only inadvertently, although I doubt he’s the reason why you”re such an amazing writer.
        I’ve got to tell you – the first post I read of yours was the one about the hungry guy who only had eighteen cents. I began reading your other posts to find out whether you were homeless, then I got hooked.
