Daybreak and Dusk the Geese and the Moon

Daybreak and Dusk the Geese and the Moon

On this hill
it seems to change...
but it doesn’t.
(click on photographs for detail)

There is daybreak and dusk;
transient geese that pass twice a year
with the sound of woodwind flutes overhead.

The moon changes daily;
coming back with a different face
only to eventually return the same.

You are the daybreak and dusk,
you are the geese and the moon.
I am as well.


I saw these things today and they moved me.

My Creed

I'm a believer
but don't ask me any questions;
I don't have any answers you'd be benefited by.
They are my answers and true for me;
they may not suit you.
In fact I'm sure they won't.

If you ask me about God
what can I say about a topic generally agreed to be unknowable?
Certainly I have a vague idea,
but my idea comes from everything I've ever experienced;
and you have not experienced what I have.

Perhaps this makes God a personal God in some ways that are not generally agreed upon by those intent on making iron clad definitions
and caricatures taken from stories in books found in every land and culture.

That God is in every land speaks loudly to me as proof that 'Something' exists beyond the edges of this little world I call myself.

It does not matter if 'It' has multiple arms, blue skin or a white beard.
'It' has appeared in the minds of mankind all over and is essentially the same despite the cultural details ascribed to 'It's' nature.

My Creed...So Far

I believe in God on the basis of intuitive not logical evidence.
I believe there is 'Something' outside the edges of my understanding leading me into the future.
I believe there is 'Something' orchestrating things.
I believe the Universe is a friendly place.
I am not afraid of what happens after the grave;
I believe I am traveling on without end.
I believe a 'one size fits all God' is an oxymoron.

When I am quiet I 'Know' these things;
at those times I feel God is speaking to me.
I listen, but I cannot tell you what I hear.
It is personal, constructed for me alone
from everything that has gone before in my life.

Peace and hope are what I feel at those times.
All I can say is:
"I seem to understand enough for the present."

A Question About Circles

A Question About Circles

Autumn sunlight
spackles fallen leaves and seeds together
on wet pine slats.

Is it the beginning or the end?

Ten Words

Life is crossroads.
Sunset and daybreak.
Things that never end.
