be the gatekeeper instead of the swinging gate of your inner life ~ KU - April 19, 2014
On a blustery day in April my dear friend, homeless and alone, was looking for his wife. The day before he taught me how to pick the best cigar. So I did. And I gave it to him. “Can you … Continue reading
She picked up all the broken pieces, gathering reflective ghosts, and returned them to their houses. Like china dolls her memories were kept on a shelf. Adorned in finery and lace. Mornings she would write in her poetic verses … Continue reading
The Mystics sing to us about the Mystery. I love to get lost in the words of the prophets on a sunny day. ~ KU - April 16, 2014
I grow very weary of those who will make you forget that you have a real life outside of work. ~ KU - April 15, 2014
stained glass soul works
is an inside job
We are human lights, ghosts of stars long gone.
Sometimes my entire being gets pulled into a place of deep compassion.
Nearly bursting, my Cancerian heart strings feel like tightly woven spider’s webs.
That plastic bad doesn’t know that it is ugly, until we tell it so.
And why must we condemn others for their ignorance,
While force feeding them our altruistic vibrations.
“We only taught those simple minded idiots what was good for them.
It is best, now, that they know who they are. No need for actually helping them,
or giving them aid. Let’s tell them how they are killing the planet, or pillaging
the Good Green Earth. Why should we show them a new way…when putting them down
is working just fine.”
All the prophets, mystics, sages, outliers and others with hearts bigger than we know
have shared this simple message with us: “be the change, an example, a fearless open-heart wanderer.”
What if we were brave enough to say, to the entire Universe
(that cheeky word “one turned into one whole”)
I love you.
And to do this just because you sense the arcane
Beauty in chaos,
the sublime gorgeousness
of the out of tune
nature of being
on the planet Earth.

life at the crossroads
of my reflection
is sometimes intense
to watch from outside
but it is an okay place
because this is where I dance
between the divine sacred
and the jocular profane
from within my soul
is all that I want
from the me, myself

Be okay with the way things twist and turn. Perspective is a good thing. ~ KU - April 12, 2014
at the faery gate I seek my inner knowing to share with the world because it is very hard to do otherwise ~ KU - April 10, 2014
The days have been full of getting things together for my new partnership. This will allow me to have space for my art studio, teach students, and take on clients. For today another haiku… deep down the roots grow as … Continue reading
