life in cascade
Journey of Days Apr 2018
starting small
the little parts fall away
nobody notices
the diminishing
barely perceptible
as we focus on the parts spinning around us
at speed

piercing gently
at first
nobody notices
the pain
barely perceptible
as we are jostled through gated moments
at speed


then it tips
the balance
ground is gone
storms unleash
deluge
giving way
to life in cascade

the point where we separated heart and head
when the logic of us fell apart
and the differences became stark
now everything we were is dust

procession
Journey of Days Dec 2017
it has started
the slow drift
moving across land
******* at the seas
whispering across the earth
charming music from the stones
drawing power from the stars
moving minds
directing hearts
air hums
light crackles
building intensity
the gathered energy
pennants flutter the quiet call to arms
forming
procession

whisper
Journey of Days Dec 2017
travel now to places
suggested while conscious
sighted in dreams
debated in ancient halls
and scribed in manuscripts
memorised charts
impressed in our hearts
determined by choice
whispering...come home
called
hear
travel now to places
born on the anguish and tears
of those still seeking
while conscious
daring to dream
debating in ancient halls
reading manuscripts
chanting cartography
schooling our hearts
discerning choice
and listen for our whisper
to come home

Journey of Days Dec 2017
Tena koutou i o koutou tini mate
Hoki atu ki te Kaihanga
Ki te karanga o Hinenuiitepo
Ki te po nui
Ki te po roa
Ki te po kahore he otinga
Ko te tatau o te po i mua i a koe
Hoki atu ki te kaitiaki o te po
No reira, haere, haere, haere


Greetings to your many dead
Return to the Creator
To the call of Hinenuiitepo
To the large night
To the long night
To the night without end
The doorway of the night is before you
Return to the guardian of the night
Therefore, farewell, farewell, farewell

Māori farewell

Rest well my friend. *Koutou kua wheturangitia

party
Journey of Days Nov 2017
...and the party continues
a conga line of ants
balance crumbs at jaunty angles
drunken cocktail waitresses
taking the scenic route across the kitchen bench
around the cooktop
skirting the kitchen sink where the spider and fly detente appears to continue
over the countertop
carefully avoiding the cockroaches playing five card draw
…. to the crack next to the door

@journeyofdays
summer in Sydney means the bugs move in
you can wipe spray clean vacuum
and they will all be back partying in your house again
