Sooner or later your particles
all go back to random
pieces of all there is
ready to reassemble into something else
O the possibilities of you!

The world is in deep doo-doo unless they listen to the elders. If they listen, they might still be in it. But hey, it’s worth a try.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1808

Live with butterflies by day and fireflies by evening, taste all flavors, dance the dances, bring all the lights from bright to soft, sing all the notes of the scale: playfully. Hug. With many voices we might yet sing one song.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1804–The smell of baking cookies

Footprints in the Windsm # 1804

The smell of baking cookies, the touch of a gentle person, someone lying next to you, the kiss of your dog, the feel of a gentle breeze, beauty in spring flowers or a melting snowflake. At end of life what’s most meaningful is what carries most life—it often revolves around creature comforts. Which of the senses do you most crave?

Footprints in the Windsm # 1802–Great song

Footprints in the Windsm # 1802

Falcon, storm, or great song?

I want to be, today, a great song. Some days I storm; some days, not too often, I rise a falcon above all that is going on. Today I want to sing, to be sung. Not so much to get my message out—that is for other days—but to hear. To hear the music of the spheres that passes through me. And maybe that which I might bring forth, however forcefully or timidly.

If we are going to make a world hospitable for the grandchildren, it won’t be through physical constructs like planned cities, technological devices, drugs, even cyborgs. Rather it will be re-designing, or rather re-finding, the human coeur.

Footprints in the Windsm # 1797–The little tree dances

Footprints in the Windsm # 1797

The little tree envied the dancing of the little goats and lambs, kittens and puppies. In a wind her mama leaned over and whispered “You may; with the breezes!” And so she danced wildly with each breeze which came along, spinning it lightly, tossing her many many arms all about! What joy! And all the trees around clapped their hands!

When I was a poet

Footprints in the Windsm # 1792

they don’t all lift me there
but when they evoke the spray
I go to sea the wild sea
