  • Death Dream

    It is a wind-blown bluish gray day when I awake inside a dream - bouncing in the back of a creaky pickup with two earthy-looking young women - clothes soiled
    We pass a familiar landscape - an estate where I have been social
    The pickup stops at Alleys General Store
    On the store’s weathered porch sits an unshaven old man in soiled blue jeans, matching jacket, mud-stained sneakers - slumped forward - coffee in hand... more »

  • Flowing

    Like a leaf flitting to and fro through the shifting air from up high to low - destined for new beginning – transforming – never the same – a moment grasped in hand from infinity to form shape in time to fill void with something collected from less into more

    Like a bird filling air with wave after wave of specific sound from center of being – finding origin from source deep within – to capture, compress and release the invisible as audible – to allow listening ear to hear song of moment – as focused energy for limited time flowing as something from nothing – to fashion godly fate on wing from chords touched by tension of tone – tone that stimulates stomata under leaf – just as our universe fills space with pulsing waves of material essence born from nowhere seen or known – having source through ethereal chords of celestial being – stimulating matter to manifest as multidimensional reality through concentration of vibration... more »

  • Inspiration (Before A Live Audience)

    To be honest – inspiration may be found anywhere, anytime, in anything
