from BARDO

The stars are in our belly; the Milky Way our umbilicus.

Is it a consolation that the stuff of which we’re made

is star-stuff too?

– That wherever you go you can never fully disappear –

dispersal only: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen.

Tree, rain, coal, glow-worm, horse, gnat, rock.

woodpecker mind

under the trees

another blue day to receive this 'I'

and dissolve it


woodpecker's drumming fills the whole valley

the way our minds too probe 'what is'

until the universe is riddled with holes



  1. That is so beautiful, it makes me think of a big swiss cheese and of course The Moon.

  2. Thank you! Wasn't sure it would mean anything to anyone else...
