The Process Of Freedom: Quatrain

THE PROCESS OF FREEDOM

Which are the thoughts that free you?
And which are those imprisoning you?

And which new ones are you eating?

During her ongoing extensive search
For objects that might at some point

Surely there must be
Some deeply vibrant

Her words, all the thoughts
All the feelings they evoke
Shall remain to nourish us

Real Dreams

REAL DREAMS

We call it this
We call it that
Until we are done
With names

DOING NOTHING II

Not too practical this proposition agreed
Yet still practicality is not of the essence
While stillness may still serve to produce
Here and there an unexpectedness or two
