The boundary between the empty field
and the old pine forest
transports me from the confines of my mind
into the ancient memories of childhood.
Walking between the giants,
they hold up the sky
as I listen to each one
and feel the warmth rising from the earth.
They were here before me
and they will stand above me when
the final day of the this life arrives
and I prepare for the next.
Beyond the fields of flowers
reaching the horizon,
another field exists
reaching beyond the stars.
This home, this planet
floats in the endless
expanse of space though
fields of time and gravity.
We harvest the land
and pull sustenance from the earth,
while we gaze upon the heavens
and the possibility of other life.

Scattered across the window
Overlooking the rocky outline
Of the lake shore.
Cast from the memories of thousand years
Together we embrace as the fire
Fills the black sky with our own universe
And the reflection of the time we have endured
And the souls we have emerged as on the other side.
Standing side by side with flow stretching across endless stars and planets
we emerge each awakening flanked by the white and black wolf.
Together we will enter Valhalla and live among the giants
who have guided and taught us ways of the ancients.
Late evening summer sun
The dirt road lined with pine and poplar
exists in familiar land and on the map,
but standing here beneath the northern sky
as the cool wind brushes the lake,
I am without time or space.
In moments where I become aware
of my contact with the earth,
does it matter where I exist
physically when everything else
I am is scattered to the sea,
the sun, and the stars?
Across the salted plains
We watch the sun fall
The moon rise
The machines sleep.
In dreams spaced by 100 years
I see you on the highest peak
Of the homeland we once
I woke in the snow blanketed forest
Facing the morning sky.
Tenants of dreams fill each fiber and neuron,
I can only piece together that I was not made for this world.
I lost direction when the void
Overtook my body and my mind
Accelerating through space
Toward unexplored, unknown, and untouched worlds.
Where is our home now?

I see the trees touch the sky
and I wonder what would happen
if they disappeared and nothing
was left holding up the universe.
From that white pinpoint in the evening sky –
I wonder what they are thinking,
and I wonder are they watching?
Our future plans take humanity further from earth
searching for aliens and distant planets,
a search for another home, perhaps,
or are we looking for ourselves?
In the endless pursuit beyond here,
are they watching us and waiting?

Skewed and shifted

beyond the traditional
rules we theorized

The universe spirals further
from the beginning
around a black hole –
At the event horizon
pink cubes gather strength.
Do the stones we find on the shoreline, inspected closely before placing in a pocket for safe keeping, care that millions of years of effort have vanished?
We may live in nature, within its surroundings the forests’ cradling hands, but we must remember the cradling hands found us as they were here first, before we arrived as simple celestial beings.
Early October and the first snowfall through 30 degree temperatures, the leaves are still green and the grass is layered with a white coat. Gray rolling clouds ooze more snow as the winds toss individual flakes from rooftops and place them elsewhere in growing drifts.
Falling into the future from the present
I sense time is changing, its motion
pushing me forward into moments
I may not be ready for.
While science states that time
does not change, how much do we
know of the physical universe
we infer and how much exists
beyond the borders and boundaries
we see and how do we know
how many universes exist out
there, wherever that is?
And if there are multiple universes,
what are the chances that we exist
in multiple dimensions and what really
is occurring is our other self pushing us forward?
