The Fifth Element

THE FIFTH ELEMENT

Nature’s elements
Fire, water, air and earth
Beckon our spirit

Open Secret

OPEN SECRET

Droplets a-sparkle
Wink in the sudden sunshine
Nothing more to say

Not For Nothing

NOT FOR NOTHING

Many years ago now we vowed
That we would never allow loss
(however painful this might be)
To restrict our deeply felt interaction
With any of the music we love

Given that we view music as
A gymnasium for the emotions
It surely follows don’t you know
That if we do not exercise
Our emotions when needed
Or like water, or like blood
They fester and putrefy

Teardrops
Contain both
Water (for cleansing)
And salt (for preservation)

Nature is not called
Mother Nature
For nothing

Moon In Cancer (13a)

MOON IN CANCER

Water-born(e)
Incessant riptide
Tortuous
Exquisite
The eyes of the Universe
Ever unblinking

Here one sees water
While here is ice and here steam
One seamless lesson

The Nature Of Things

THE NATURE OF THINGS

They named him Walter
And yet were surprised when he
Ran away to sea
