I awaken as the night sky pours on the concrete
Moonlight cascades the mountain ranges and trees
A quietness and stillness as the darkness explores
It is serene and void of the daylights abrubt
Here is where anything is possible and the unreal comes to life
The animals no longer hide; roaming the terrain
The fox; wolf; racoons; coyotes; owls and bears
I feel as if a visitor in this time and place and I respect it
I respect its sacredness and its divine still
While streetlights flicker along the cascading streets
Not a sound and not a movement nor passing cars
All is still yet I know it is very much alive
When I awaken to the nights sky
I see the words along the page
As eyes watch my words
Words describing themselves
I’m inscribing myself
Depraved of my enlightenment
Perhaps if my ego is forgiven me n no longer lives in me
More mindful kindness handfuls of love to remind us
Of compassion as we face life’s lashes
I have been reborn over and over but… This time is different I’ve never been sober for this long; decades of relentless; alcohol dependence
The days are in the hundreds; gather abundance; knowledge. Confront my fears try to be humble and acknowledge.
Keep focus; meditation half lotus. Buddha quotes rewrote them post them. Try to be open.
Lessons learned; a great deal. I wait still. Time stands still. The virtue of patience.
As I await, awake here.
This is the rising sun; this is my awakening. Long gone are the stars moon and shooting stars. I am collecting myself to bring fourth this day. A day to reflect and be in the present. Always returning. To the center. To the breath.
In the morning I play with words
Await the birds song
When sunrise comes along
The arrival of love I long
They nest as I rest as well
Buddhist bell singing bowl
Universe please bring me more
Days like this; I await my bliss
Kiss the Moon Stars and Sky
To this midnight I thank
N say my goodbye
