of life and the lightning bolts
of fire coexist
.. clouds born from
trees' evaporation mist

TOWN CRIER

The Wind is a purifier
even greater than fire.
He makes of beetle bored
bamboo
a woodwind lyre.
He whistles through chimneys
He's the oldest town crier.
He's a leafblower, a windfall
giver,
a seedspreader, an unpaid clothesline dryer.
When Brinks trucks are hit he
blows money all over... he coconspires.
He doesn't like expensive hats....
he's a thief of attire.
He's the lift beneath all sails
who helps all birds soar higher.
He's the voice of all choirs,
the breath that life requires.

The sun,
reverse alchemist,
from his gold weaves
mangoes out of mist

To make scarlet the grey and
white and brown and green

some trash meats?
For the same reason it

Profit seekers modern Dr Hydes
market all the skin
and organs.. under the innocent's hide

burst the translucent daisies..
metamorphosis

pluck no bright daisy
petals... have no doubt that your

MY JEWISH TEACHERS

In this life I was born into a Christian family.
which had a Jewish teacher...... Jesus.
These Jewish teachers changed my thoughts and behavior:
Marvin Katz who ignited a love of vegetarian and fruitarian ways.
David Spitz a teacher who questioned capitalism
ignited my socialism.
Sidney Peck who led our particular branch of anti Vietnam
peace action
Sam Sandweiss and Arnold Scholman, psychiatrist
and Hollywood screenwriter, wrote books introducing me
to a guru of over 100 million people. Moselle Milner
gave me their books.
Gene and Milt Radney contributed toward my schooling.

Those who are pilgrims on the path of nonviolence
reject the violent and illegal wars which violate
Isaiah's "I delight not in your blood sacrifice"
and Exodus' Thou Shalt Not Kill.

a place to which the expanding numbers

CATCH A FIRE IN THE SKY WITH WATER

Catch a fire in the sky
with water.
Catch sun's reflection
with pond daughters.
Water is not the foe
of fire.
Together rainbows they
do sire.

IS LOVE THE BEST TEACHER?

There are many schools of thought on contests,
on school admissions, on life.
Some competitions require that a different person
be given the 1st place each time..
Others give only to excellence...
There have been more than one college professor
fired for giving everyone an A...
and yet studies, even brutal animal torture studies
by B F Skinner and others,
indicate that reward and praise
are a much more effective path to learning than
draconian standards.
The plant that is given water, sunlight and human love
does better than the plant given acidity.

HEART PORTAL

Heart portal
to Love Immortal.
In a wild place
there is more grace.

SPIRIT OF CHOI SUNG-BONG CONQUERS ALL

Korean Choi Sung-Bong was required to
answer a question about why his family
line on his application for a singing contest was blank. He
replied that he was left in an orphange at age 3.
He had no name
After beatings, he left at age 5
and sold energy drinks and other items on the street for 10 years.
He slept in stairwells and in toilets.

God of all beings, give infinite love to all.

singer who awakened his love of song and gave him a name.

PEACH GROVE NEXT TO ABBATOIR

Next to an abbatoir
grows a peach grove.
The former has screams.
The latter is silent.
The slaughterhouse
stinks of blood and urine
and solid waste.
The peach grove is fragrant.
The slaughterhouse yields
100 to 1000 lbs an acre of
food.
The peach grove yields in
trilevel agriculture 450,000
pounds an acre.
The slaughterhouse is labor
intensive and causes many injuries
to workers.
The peach tree requires nothing
but a seed beneath dirt. The sun
and rain and mother earth
do the rest.
the slaughterhouse food causes
cancer, heart disease, food
poisoning, kidney failure, arthritis,
food poisoning fatalities etc.
The
peach grove is God-designed.

UNSCROLLED

No fragrance or bees or petaldrop.
Yet his paper roses words inrolled
ignited my heart when unscrolled.

MARRIAGE VOW

The marriage vow requires
a pledge of lifelong fidelity to one
when the same God shines
from the eyes of everyone
Yet it is that God who asks us
to break the heart of no one.

BREVITY

Endless oak forests
contained in an acorn
The limitless sun's reflection
caught in a small puddle

Brevity is a path to
spiritual power as
God Himself indwells
each soul

PUBLIC LETTER TO ANIMAL ABUSERS

Public letter to Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez
and Paris Hilton: Some might say your exterior is attractive
but to the animals those who wear skins taken from
their murdered backs have hearts of stone.

COMMUNION

Communication...
is often a prelude
to communion.

Footnote:

Alternate point of view: Others have said that communion requires no
communication

PRESIDENTS AL GORE AND JOHN KERRY

Our US is not a democracy.
It has always been a plutocracy.
Our people voted for Gore and Kerry.
They each did our nation carry.
But 'voting machines' and unelected!
"Supreme" Court justices with life terms!
stole the White House
with their parries.
When a 'Supreme' Court
ignores the wishes of 300 million
and creates laws
for those with billions
it destroys the rights
of citizen civilians.
*
Footnote:

Robert F Kennedy Jr. saw 3 of his relatives die by opposition violence. His
uncle John, his father Robert, his cousin George were all murdered. Plutocrats
tried to murder his uncle Ted twice. The first time an arranged plane crash took
the lives of 2 in the plane and Ted Kennedy had a broken back which hospitalized
him for months. The second time, according to Nixon White House tapes, John Dean
told Nixon "Kennedy doesn't know what a beartrap is waiting for him in
Chappaquiddick. Howard is there". The Howard was E Howard Hunt of the Watergate
burglars, and one of the 3 'clean shaven tramps' in Dallas Nov 22, 1963. The CIA
time-severed Kennedy's brakes. There are tens of thousands of instances in this
country alone of fraud.

Why did a foreign country firm 'tally' the Iowa caucus vote in 2008? Many
believe that John Edward who had campaigned in that state for 4 years won that
primary and several others.

STOP THE REVENGE CYCLE

As long as adherents
of different faiths
glorify revenge,
the hatred will viciously cycle
and downard spiral..
What can lift haters
out of their ruts?
What chelation can
take
hate from their hearts?

Can love truly conquer all?

Lt. General Stubblebine of the US, Andreas Von
Buelow, former cabinet minister of Germany, President Cossiga of Italy, members
of the Japanese Diet, thousands of other political leaders and millions of
others have spread their message on millions of websites... the bombing of
the WTC was a black op designed to give the US government an excuse to invade
Afghanistan. Osama Bin Laden died in 2001. He had been hospitalized in critical
need of dialysis.

It is time for the 9 or more nuclear weapons holding nations to create an
international treaty of nuclear disarmament. It is time for permanent veto power
seats on the Security Council to be abolished.
France and England with 60 million people
each, China, the US and Russia are the 5 seat holders.
4 predominantly white nations (England France, the US
and Russia, hold power. There is no African, no
S or Central American nation, and only 1 Asia nation.

NO!

He heard others say
'bloom where you are planted'
and back he roared "No!
I don't need this job!
I don't need this home!
I have a right to be free!
to live by the sea!
I can pull up my roots
I can take any route
but I WILL arrive at the sea!
I WILL arrive at the sea!"

SPLATTERED OVER BLACK AND WHITE

He said that pacifists
saw everything as black and white,
did not have imagination, saw no nuance.
His nuance was to splatter scarlet blood
all over the 'black and white'
and on every being bathed in light.

TRAGEDY: GATE TO JOY

Through the void of past
tragedies, God enters

MUM

Mums live longer than lilacs
as truth outlasts lies

FAITHFUL DRUM HEARTS

All our lungs are
prayer wheels moving in
and out with the Gift of
Spirit. Our hearts
are faithful drums
beating to the rhythms of
God.

THE OATH OF HIPPOCRATES: FIRST DO NO HARM

Is a doctor who
turns away Medicaid patients
fulfilling his Hippocratic oath?
If he harms animals in medical school,
distributes lethal prescriptions,
does unnecessary tests, surgeries
is he fulfilling his Hippocratic oath?

Are those who do not mean
the words of the oath Hippocratic...
hypocrites?

IF YOU SIT THERE HE WILL COME

If you sit there he will come.
They also serve who only sit and wait.
Patience is a prelude to sudden miracles of destiny.

FIRE AND ICE

Napoleon and Hitler both met
the snows of Russia and the fire spirit
of the Russian people.

Footnote:

26.1 million Russians died fighting Hitler, many times more than the
casualties of any other country which fought the Nazis.

The widowed women of Russia have lived alone for many decades.

Yet loanshark capitalists with Russophobia as their stock in trade hide
this basic truth of history.

1942 and 1943

a long wedding ceremony for
saturn and uranus .. whose union
vanquished Hitler's jupiter and mars...as the snows of Stalingrad and the Spirit
of the Russian people united to defeat Hitler.

In 1920, the loanshark capitalist powers of the world including the US and UK
preferred the brutal czars indifferent to the people's suffering and blockaded
the ports of Russia, preventing food from getting to the people.

The seeds of World War II could be found planted at Versailles by puppets of
international banksters and imperialist invaders of other countries.

Job 38:

22Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the

23Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle
and war?

CLARA T FOOTNOTED

Oh Clara T
... a mind of perfect clarity..
heartfont of pouring charity..
.. as in the woods of Cherokee
grow allfruit giving cherry trees

Footnote:

When Clara went to the St Jude Shrine, several witnessed that her rosary links
had turned to gold. She has spent 6 decades serving others... most often 16
hours a day. Recently there were witnesses that a light halo had manifested on
the gray stone angel on her porch.

MISTAKEN FOR A DEAD LEAF

I saw the last dead leaf
high up on the tree...
when suddenly it began
to trill..
in the 39 degree morn
making cheer out of chill

PRAYER BEADS

Catholics have rosary beads
Hindus and Buddhists have
japamala beads and prayer wheels.
Moslems have prayer beads.
Repetition of prayers or mantras
is practiced in each creed.
As 3600 moves of the second hand
make one of the hand of the hour,
3600 repeated prayers
make a mighty deed.
By such actions, the summoned
Presence of God is guaranteed.

Footnote:
Whatever ones favorite name for God, repetition of that name will eventually
summon God's presence in a greater way than before

PROFANE

How dirty and profane
the toxic stench of propane
*
Footnote:

For over 100 years, the petroplutocracy has bought up and sat on free energy
patents. In the early part of the last century the train lines were bought up
and in many cases dismantled.

WHEN GOD WHIRLED

When God whirled
His will into world
and out of the firmament
the first lightning hurled
When He the first
fern flags unfurled
and the first climbing
vine tendrils were curled
and into a palate the
first sunset swirled
and with His wind
the first prayer wheels twirled
He waited awhile before the boys He boy'd
and the first girls He girled.

GODFORSAKEN

The almond tree freely gives all of the
nuts she has nestled and nurtured
but the life of the bull is brutally taken.
He leaves this life feeling God-forsaken.
Would he say if he could speak
as he was crucified
Eli Eli Lama Sabacthani
before he died.
*
Footnote:

The last 4 words are those Jesus is said to have spoken before He died.
Translated they mean "Father Father why hast Thou forsaken Me?"

Poem is not meant to imply that animals are equal to Jesus... but to echo Jesus'
words "Whatsoever you have done to these the least of My brethren you have done
unto Me."

Around the world millions are working to end the live shipment of animals to
lives of slavery and slavery, by such companies as Heifer International, New
Zealand, Australian and other countries.

FOUR FLOWERS REVISED

GENETIC RACISM

A lightning bolt thought
caused in his mind prism
a shift... a May schism..
He was to work against
geneaological and
genetic racism.

brothers and sisters)

SILENCE TURNS TO SPEECH

Silence turns to speech.
Waterfall ice begins to drip.
Grateful forest animals

KOANS FROM MY TEACHER

Unnumbered phrases Baba whispered to me in meditation such as

'Not in the morning pond does the lion wash his blood.'

'Embezzled Heart'

'Inside the chalice of wrath is the blood of Jesus'

'They tangle the edge of the river with vines'

while Yogananda said

'The Star of India is within you'

Baba showed me countless pictures in my third eye:

a 4 sided church clock tower in the rain... both hands at 6.. and
each dripping rain drops

He has given me endless dreams... to teach me, to expand my mind,
to nudge me into better ways.

It is not the horse head in the fountain which is the source of the
water flowing through it.

The poems you like are Baba's. Those you don't are mine.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Racism is the violent hand of the past
over justice in the US, as southern states continue
to execute many more death row African Americans and
Hispanics than whites.
Virginia, N Carolina, S Carolina,
Texas, Florida are in the top 10
in racist executions. Prince William County
in Virginia and Harris County (Rep Tom Delay)
in Houston remain 2 of the most executing counties.
White rich conservative counties send more nonwhites to their deaths than do
other counties.
   John Copeland of Oberlin, Ohio had fought
   with John Brown.. using arms rather
   than nonviolence in the pre Civil War
   days to attempt to rid the
   world of  racism at Harper's Ferry
   and other places.

   He along with at least 4 other Ohioans, including
   John Brown, was sentenced to be hanged.
   Oberlin College archives have a letter
   he wrote before his death in which he said
   he forgives all, and in different words says
   that the scaffolding is the altar upon which
   he will ascend to God.

   His parents had accepted his death, but
   were beside themselves with grief when
   armed white racist mostly Southern medical
   students from a Wincester Va. medical school
   dug up his body to use it as a cadaver in
   medical research. Those dispatched to try
   to retrieve his body for burial failed in their
   mission.

   Now Ohio is still among 10 states with
   attorneys general seeking state premeditated
   murder..

   Father Mother God You prevented a capital
   punishment in progress when You stood between
   the mob armed with stones and the woman.
   Thank You that You are now ending all forms
   of violence on the planet, and pouring our
   Your Spirit on all creatures.

   (Now it is living  dogs, cats and
   monkeys and rats more than human corpses
   used as the victims of the dark magic
   of vivisection)
