To all those I have not communicated much with since Spring 2012.. I offer you this..

Funny how life has a way of sidetracking humans. Call it an aggregation of deep interest in a singular … object … focus … … coupled with a crescendo of stress emanating from past baggage to a specific event. I know, that’s convoluted and doesn’t make sense – but I need to keep it private.

Suffice to say that, as always, I gave these two areas my best shot. And while doing so, other areas of life’s interests became dormant.

I wrote this years ago, and it applies today.

Seed Fire

Content
I grew / in season

Resting pine leaves
in strong boughs

Buffeting storms
Ice, wind, rain, snow

Warm summers
Forest scents my own

A heavy heat
Impending

Crescendo explosions / mountain rages

Single snap
Falling

Intense heat
And my self uncurling

Crackling fast
And done, gone

My body, soul
bared open and none

No choosing
No trying / just be

Life transitions
Old none / new seeds begun
