Irony’s a Bitch

I lay on the cold dusty hard wood floor contemplating the voice of my generation, visions of rebellion sex drugs protest and poetry

Who are we but those who walk in the shadows of beats and baby boomers

We are not the Y generation, but the why generation, everything’s been done everyone’s been challenged, so where are we left to express dissatisfaction

On Ben Lomond - Seven Haiku

1
Walking the labyrinth in June
Birds sing one onward
Ants see no obstacle in bare feet

2
Two roads to freedom
The beggar and the scholar
One takes the other gives away

3
By the waterfall’s chorus
Orange Kimono butterflies mate
Droopy redwood sapling

4
Fluttering in dappled sunlight
Tender green shoots

Poems from "A Sail of Love"

A God-space between us
There is a God-space between us
that holds a truth
larger than any of our own.
It is a challenge to be open
to that possibility,
to trust the Great Mystery
of the in-between-place
that can move us towards
forgiveness, reconciliation, home.
