Listening out the Window and Wonderland

I stumbled across these two poems in a journal that I wrote in 2016. Thought I’d share as an announcement, a promise to make time to write again. Enjoy the poems.


Listening out the window

Stretching across the farmland
ballistic stretch
bright discharge of static.
Peke into the mystery in that flash
Rumbly bumbly
Winnie the Pooh tummy sounds.
Where am I headed?
To the red door of the mansion.
The rain will wash away
barriers and fear.

Down comes the rain
Spiders hold on tight.
Electric washboard
Clean the atmospheric energy
Clean the air
Clean the land
Clear your mind
and free your heart.



Have you ever been to Wonderland?
That immersion of curiosity
of exploration
of openness?
Wonderland has no map,
values are your only navigation.

How do I know when I have arrived?
Wonderland is not a place,
it is a journey,
a series of horizons
where you seek.
What is over the next hill?

Wonderland is a mindset, an experiment,
a remake of self
again and again.
Wonderland is discovery of talents and tastes
of experiences
both planned and stumbled into.

There are many detours and learnings
but no wrong turns.
All is information.
All steps are steps toward
the next mile marker.

How do I get to Wonderland?
Close your eyes, take a deep breath
and begin to wonder.
I wonder who I will meet today?
I wonder what my next project will be?
I wonder where love will take me?
I wonder what adventure will present to me?

Open your eyes
Take a deep breath
and notice.
All that is left to do,
is begin
is to say “yes.”
