Day 121 – root; zing; (for p)

Day 121
2:27 pm – 3:09pm


the hidden
is everywhere

can you feel it?

begging us
to root
the path
of uncovering

the every thing
in nothing

to find
missing pieces
of our
before religion,

there deep
in the radicle
we find the vision

lest we forget them

some things
can’t help
but spring
while some
under ground

the barely there
is all around

do you feel it?

there are those days
you are standing in
your bathroom
and the music is zinging
not singing
in fact zinging through
your head
for the sound is so
powerful it is like
the movement of
thunder, lightning,
dance and song
so it is a zing, yes, it is

you hear the words
flow through your
body from your
chi to your head
this is one of those
days, you say,
i will write
the day away
so you do
and there it is

a meeting
of paper to pen

with the sound
of a zing
in your head


teammates (for p)

i am the xylem
the water bearer, and you
the phloem, of course
