Wood can absorb water as rooms can absorb memories. Too much water and the board is left like driftwood, too many memories and the space remains altered forever.

Though ever so slightly, the water is constantly moving and contacting whatever comes it's way... and so does life with its experiences and memories.

rippling little waves
brushing lightly on the shore;
summer sings softly

Some of how Summer swallows up a creek bed is with her vines, her branches, the fallen trees that remain, but grow all different gray and green mosses—forming a million Rorschach test, but in color—engulfing each branch.

That's Summer, the time when things are swallowed up in life, the way it should be.


enfolding green banks
gulping up a drying creek;
summer eats her snacks

We are past the new rush of leaves and green overtaking the grays and browns of winter; we are in the lazy days.

With daylight lingering, we all tend to linger by the lakes, the rivers, or the fire. It's good to linger there.


ripples lap ripples
on water's activities;
summer stays later

The soft feminine energy of Summer is all around us. Whether blossom leaves or flower pedals, some pathways become a chorus of flutter when engaged.

The song of life goes on!


pedals drop like scarves
in the path for attention;
summer swings her hips

Readers come and go, some with purpose, others with no purpose at all; but the seasons remain. They remain, but with no green leaf, no sun ray, no perfect day the same. It's a dance, slowing now as Summer does, but still a dance that is just a follower and lead reinventing the same song anew.


setting down today
and leaving this lazy day
summer is becoming

Life is seen in the rising up, it's felt in the "uplifting" energy. So as the green leaves fill the valley and the green spreads up the valley, we feel alive!


the color green fills
half the luminous valley;
spring will find the top!

With the summer heat, the rivers and streams seem to be narrowing and slowing. As with life, things become exposed and unburied when this happens.


unburied driftwood
dried in the low water mud;
streams yield to the heat

Around the edges of the rain cloud sets the full sunset, illuminating the sky behind. The cloud is dark at its core, but majestic at the edges. This dichotomy is abundant in nature as it is in the people we are constantly meeting.


rainy clouds, sunset
around the pinkish edges;
summer drifts slowly

It's so interesting that the daylight is the longest later this coming week and then it starts the retreat. The sun starts pulling away more and more, setting the corse to winter; yet our warmest days of summer are likely ahead of us.

Life is like that, momentum heading away as the moment heads towards. In that way, there's always space for hopes and dreams, so dream on!

to the touch, the stream's
cool, so follows the river;
summer has arrived

The birds were weaving in and out of the glow that came from behind the tree. These birds may have been about world domination; but this time their song was so relaxing that everything fell under their spell.

The randomness kept pulling life into the communion of summer;

the randomness was the ordering, the gathering, and then the reordering of life.


halo on the tree,
dusk's sacred light ritual;
...summer as holy

There's a compact, certain form of water locked into rock deep within the earth. Apparently, when squeezed with high powered compression, water comes out. Water is the very source of life and keeps us alive...

So when we are under the presses and being squeezed harder than you've ever been squeezed, watch the ancient life come out of you!

water dripping down
the sharpened clefts, sparkling;
spring streams find a way

Spring is the unclenching of winter: Each bud is opening like the no longer angry hand that held its ground. And as the hand finally stretches, the release is felt through every part of the body, through all of the life around that freed hand.

Spring is our relaxing and forgiving.


harsh grip on winter
budding leaves opening clenched fist;
spring brings lighter days

out to change the world, out to change my heart.
Introduction
I've moved to Binghamton, NY, in hopes of understanding my faith in Jesus through creating a more life-giving society for all, even those I disagree with.

I read and write literature. Mainly poetry, but I like well written works.

I believe justice is the responsibility of every single person in their own community, and all justice in love.
Bragging rights
I've seen adults who thought they were stupid regain their learning confidence & move themselves towards a better future.

Fantastic, rich, authentic experience! A muddy Sunday morning I accidentally walked in in search of coffee. I sat at an charming old table -- whispering of many owners through the century-- and had to have an old fashion doughnut: delightful! Quality and charm is in every inch of this wonderful treasure!
