breathing Novak-style

Made with Repix (http://repix.it)

 

up for air

taking it

one breath

at a time

 

do i win

at the

expense

of others

 

is duality

even an

issue

here

 

like Rafa

like Novak

one ball

at a time

 

one foot

in front

of the

other

 

reaching out

and up

and lovingly

forward

 

sweaters

writing

honoring

beauty

 

above all

your eyes

show me

your heart

 

under it all

connecting

the dots

playing the game

 

hold on and

remember

the truth

your truth

 

breathe.

the light

can be so

bright

 

the essence

of our journey

starts and

ends simply

 

breathe.

it falls away

down the drain

not needed

anymore

 

the fortress

the matchbox

prison of my 

last name

 

padded walls

and arteries

so warm 

too warm

 

choosing

continually

transmission

overhauled

 

let it down

let it go

like a

fallen angel

 

associating

in the real

with the new

connection made

second to none

a day

like today

singing

in the bathroom

 

everybody

woke up

early

today

 

hugging 

me

so 

tight

 

it’s a

 big day

the 

beginning

 

excited!

no…

thrilled

and more

 

the next piece

called you

this week,

a guest list

 

feeling

the future

at your 

feet

 

wagging

your tail

a puppy

romping into life

 

the next

and 

the next

spills forth

 

the sun is up

the moon

still 

here

 

all want

to see

your

next step

 

it is yours

for the

making & 

the taking

plugged

dollars and sense

cented candles

you know what

i mean

 

your attention

is needed

at the

checkout counter

 

the aroma

at the antique store

it makes me

dissociate

 

the sounds

of the machines

at the gym

i dissociate

 

cat-called

walking down

the street

dissociated

 

something

rips, tears

screeches to

a halt

 

this reality

this seeming

life of mine

it’s largely a lie

 

not all….there are

places i connect

and am truly

plugged all the way in

 

it’s challenging

i’ve been challenged

dared to remember

terrified to speak

 

i’m aging

i’m carrying

a past

i cannot remember

 

weighted down

buried deep

staying in

side stepping

guard rails

oh my god

hold on!!

what a ride

nothing to hold on to

 

screeching down 

the highway of life

what’s to stop me

oh….how about everything

 

everything stops me

oh wait……..

nothing stops me

nothing at all

 

nothing to fence me in,

nothing to give me 

boundaries

or limits

 

i have

really let

myself go

in all ways

 

no guard and

guards all around

so much that my

view is obscured

 

 

can’t see at all

so busy driving along

at breakneck speeds

all is lost at times

 

all or nothing

win or lose

nothing at all

hands free

 

 

 

abundant silence

Image

 

there is nothing like it

there are no words

not a whimper

not a whisper

 

decades of silence

no one knew

it was as though

i had been hit by a truck

 

immediate alarm

emergency sirens

 

coursed thru my body

and then the flashes

 

i didn’t know what i was

seeing, hearing, experiencing

 

 

 

 

 

 

wolf medicine

Image

 

a dream

a knowing

 

but first

coyote

 

a drive thru

the woods

across the road

coyote ran

 

weeks later

i’m asleep

dreaming of

a forest

 

i came upon

a paper wolf

picked it up

just like a map

 

the creases

fell in

to fold itself

yet

 

as i held it up

the paper went

right thru

my body

 

from front to rear

on my body

from top to 

bottom was the wolf

 

head on my shoulder

my constant companion

perfect

medicine
