Psychedelic Pause…


Psychedelic trees,
Growing in twisted motion,
Toward the unreachable sun.

Waves of color and light,
Smearing reality’s canvas,
Breathing oxygen needed to run.

Eyes open or closed,
One can’t know for sure.
Is stillness accurate?

Or, is all of the world alive,
And we just haven’t the sight,
To see beyond our visual imprint?

I’m far removed from my LSD “experimentation” days… This was inspired by a movie I was watching.

Happy Palms…


Palm trees in the Las Vegas,
Brought from far away.
Transplanted into sandy ground,
About which, they had no say.

Yet they seem to be quite happy,
Despite the lack of rain.
They have the loyalty of the sun,
And winds to help them sway!

And how about the late night music?
The lights that make them glow?
The crazy things they get to witness,
That the world may never know?

It is true what they say,
At least in many a circumstance.
What happens in Vegas stays there,
Where many happy palms dance.

I Seek Vertical Increase…


I’m 31 architectural stacks in the sky,
I’ve really always liked getting high.

To the tips of the trees, as a kid I’d climb,
I’ve really always liked getting high.

“Window seat please”, only way to fly,
I’ve really always liked getting high.

Rotating restaurants and towers worldwide,
I’ve really always liked getting high.

Ascending hills and mountainsides,
I’ve really always liked getting high…

Maybe it’s a spirit within everyone,
Children embracing increase in the vertical.
Unafraid of the climb,
Not concerned about the potential fall.

Maybe I’m just trying to reach God,
In a literal and worldly way.
Reaching for the energy of a sun,
Which emits God’s powerful rays.

Perhaps the literal manifestations,
Have nothing to do with the figurative.

Maybe I simply like to climb?
But, I always have, and still, like to get “high”…

Do you?

Just Underneath…


God, through His creation, speaks,

In metaphoric clarity.

Through various forms and many themes,

His voice can be both heard and seen.


It’s a soft-spoken, and gentle breeze,

Which whispers through the rustling leaves.

Speaking with the influential certainty,

Of a feverish storm upon the sea.


Colors combine, and with textures meet,

Sounds, and aromatics are beautifully unique.

All contribute to wisdom’s necessary increase,

A nourishing vine allowing it’s branches to receive.


With heart and mind open, willing to believe,

When faith’s sightless vision is unleashed.

We see past the literal, to perceive,

The treasures which are hidden…just underneath.

Safe There…


Lost in the forest
Sheltered by towering trees
Not wanting to leave
