16 march









there are green wicker chairs in my living room

beyond them is the tower of the old coast guard station

at night the cities across the water look like small strips of light

glistening in the distance

plopped down here with friends

we squeeze the last drop of wine out of the bottle 

and nibble on apples and cheeses 

 perhaps you will cut us some slack

as we fuss about our futures

it's easy to forget 

that we are all dust

  4. Dust we are, so easy to forget, think we are important, when we are each fading in our time.

  5. Dust and electricity caught in a lighthouse beam..I think enjoying the wine and apples and cheese is a better way to be though!

  15. An interesting exercise in perspective: from the near to the far to the infinite. Nice ideas.

  16. There is something extremely comforting in familiar surroundings, and even if we are dust, while we breathe, we take something from life.

    I so enjoyed the way you expressed this idea in your poem.

  18. Truly sublime. Soft and comforting and full of hope even with the "dust" reference - which grounds the poem, makes us realize we can soar and dream unique paths even though we all share the same end.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
