enact kindness
create moments of pause for disclosure, discovery, stillness

Longest Day

There, at the sweet spot 
on the Rose line
a circle of stones
purple dawn
an old friend
with sweet anticipation

If you linger in the stillness a few moments
you, too, can bask in the warm glow 
of ancient ritual and necessary remembering

one of the things that keeps me going.....

The cure for boredom is curiosity.
There is no cure for curiosity.

on the edge of summer at a university in times of (purported) austerity

Early June and times are strange
Days are longer, nights are hot
Orders camouflaged as change
Lies grow stronger, fester, rot
Deceitful compost
Helpful? NOT!

More than ever, digging deep
Cynicism as a tool
Authenticity can seep
Upwards from the darkest pool
Borne of unrelenting creep
Even on the fumes of fuel
Vigilance is no one's fool
Maybe--that's a helpful rule
Riding on a steadfast mule
