3 Poems for an Early Morning

Vancouver Reflections



A Conscious Poem:

am i up high?

am I down low?

is there a difference?

can I be both?



cold shiver

my liver

big giver


I quiver

life liver.


in a constant state

of sleeplessness

and unrest

and undress

on this late evening

I confess

I attest

to madness

as we evolve

I resolve

to meet all of

everything with love.


Which burden is the lightest to carry?

And will that be yours?

Will you shoulder the boulder?

And weather the storm?

Will you face all the obstacles?

The great and the small?

And what will it matter if you trip and you fall?

Will you take on the challenge?

Or watch from the road?

When your pack gets to heavy, or starts to unfold?

Can you alter the rations?

Can you make the change?

Or will you keep chasing?

The birds into the cage.
