Poetry ~ The Dragon Tree

i created the dragon tree
on a canvas in the garden of Eden
wrapped in vines with leaves shaped
like coins and decorated with
cones, nuts, and seeds
i am the creator of all you see
and all that remains a mystery
i am the artist, the mystic,
creator of the dragon tree

My poem was inspired by today's NaPoWriMo prompt: write a poem based on Bosch's, "The Garden of Earthly Delights" you can find a tour of this amazing work here.

Poetry ~ My Beloved

“Out beyond ideas of right doing and wrong doing, there is a field … I’ll meet you there.” ~ Rumi

"Where are you my beloved? she cried.
"I am not lost," he replied, "you are."
"You seek comfort in the yellow wheat fields,
in meadow grass where the wild flowers grow,
in houses of worship that breed division.
I am beyond the field; beyond colors,
beyond the senses of your realm
and your duality.
I dwell in the field of the singularity
a field that some call god,
but has no religion, race, or gender.
Come, find me here."

The Thunder Moon

July’s full moon, often called the Buck or Thunder moon, rises early over our homestead in the Okanogan Highlands of Washington State.

The full moon lives up to its name with constant thunderstorms that rumble over the highlands every afternoon. And recently we’ve spotted a young buck down by the pond.

Cheers to long summer days and mesmerizing summer nights under the Thunder Moon!
