Accept mysteries

Open the stillness inside

Be one with your dreams

“It’s the end of the world as we know it…

…and I feel fine.” (REM).

Qua

“I’m beginning to hear the teachings of my blood pulsing within me. My story isn’t pleasant, it’s not sweet and harmonious like invented stories; it tastes of folly and bewilderment, of madness and dream, like the life of all people who no longer want to lie to themselves.” Hermann Hesse

Qua. 16×14 in. 41×36 cm. Acrylic on panel.

 

With every breath

I feel the world within change

and yet, recognizable

 

Haiku by Clinock

Mexico – campanas y nubes

sma domes and sunset

it has never failed

and it was planned to be so

by the white fathers

sma campinale

I speak of the bells

that oscillate in the heart

and call us call us

call us

3 bells

the cloud / sky romance

magicked us eons before

and we reach out still

 

into the beautiful blue loneliness of space

Mexico – camino en belleza

centuries of feet

sun and rain and heated rock

creating magic

closely absorbing

the sidewalks of San Miguel

painter’s ecstasy

each breath enchanted

every step a masterpiece

each day on my knees

so many wonders

geological galleries

in these dusty streets

Mexico – graceful among fishes

eating helado

entranced by a wall of salmon

 a floating of tiles

 

here is simple peace

the doorway a Madonna

graceful among fishes
