Keep Looking

the dream is what I really was thinking about
even as I kept working and thoroughly enjoyed
another anniversary dinner each one unique we
have so much to draw on you had lamb I rabbit

walking down the mountain I was barefoot and
wondered how they got the food up for dinners
it all seems so impractical why anyone bothers
but we do keep looking for the very best views

Tidy Up

the furniture randomly draped with
miscellaneous cloths this is not the way
we live I think in geometry hold chaos
at bay tidy up restore the clutter's order

such elaborate infrastructure requires
energy maintenance assumes attention
confident in Buddha lineage delimiting
what you can't imagine yourself doing

Still Stuck

otherwise we'd lose words
you'd be me I'd wonder who
else might come for dinner

otherwise we'd already changed
without knowing why we were
still stuck within ourselves

otherwise you'd be back before
I even noticed you were gone
busy as I was being occupied

sudden thunder interrupts a
dream of work appreciated
without quite being understood

Same Side

remember we are comrades
the war is lost but we can win
our battles I am on your side
and you on mine we are on the
same side side of sanity good
sense mutual encouragement
in honest healthy endeavors
true to our innermost desires
