Birds Sing & Humans Dream

Birds sing wildly in the trees while we sleep

Animals surrounding our love nest

And only we understand why we weep

Because beings other than humans just know they belong

But how can we somehow sing the same song

Croon the sounds of joy and burst with radiant being

Knowing, believing

I succumb to my nature with my love by my side

His smell, his skin, welcoming me home

I am not alone

With thoughts, with fears, or anything human

In intimacy, all definitions clear

We are but one being sharing breath

Safe to build our tribe and love out loud together


While sleeping to the soundtrack of a birdsong we belong

So we must never forget

This is always there

No matter where

Or when

It exists within

That harmonious feeling you see Is merely a reflection of you back to me

We shine life into each other's eyes

Reverberate love to the infinite skies

The birds watch from above

The earth encourages from below

Let's go

And keep going



Sing, dance, express

Live like we're dying

Worry not, sweet human

This is not a test

It's life

Your life

You are life

So quit the strife

And decide

To be Free

Live and love wildly

Satisfy yourself

And be kind

Keep flowin

There is no rewind

So find

Your meaning

Your purpose to be

You deserve love, and life

No more

No less

Than me


A Place of Awe

It occurred to me, while completely engulfed in wonder staring at the magnificent and unreal beauty that is the Pacific Ocean, how little human beings spend time in awe. We may find little caveats of awesome, easily brushing them to the side to make room for the next, but rarely are we in a place of awe. I think we should change that.

It struck me how this sensation is often attached to novelty, to an experience brand new. And we are so infrequently in that raw, observant state, full attention and alert focus on our present surroundings and circumstances. We shift and mosey through life as if we've seen it all before, saving those extra scraps of income to buy our way into something new, an original experience to stimulate the senses.

But where's the joy in Now?

Surely life must contain some excitement, some meaning for us to go on, day in and day out, like our health depended on it. We drive the same paths and execute the same routines in an effort to simplify, to de-stress. The only problem here is we've become robots, conditioned, repetitive beings. We can pay a nod of respect for the consistency but our hearts, minds, bodies and souls need a kick of enthusiasm, and same old same old just wont cut it.

The truth is there is tremendous radiance in all things, in every aspect of life. Even within patterns. We merely need to be in the right place and space to truly witness it. Nothing needs to be bought or acquired, no accomplishment or step to success be completed. We are already enough, life is a gift just waiting to be unwrapped. Give yourself the gift and open up to the present.
