Blue Flower

By Patrick Connelly and Randy Richards 

pine trees

seek shores

where fish fly

 

roaming to wait upon

the serene tao touch

illusions fly

 

fish fly to evergreen whispers

pine tree shores reveal the liquid crystals

to touch the toa splashes split white light

 

absolute stillness

action seems impossible

coldness in motion

 

flying fish roam free

pine trees await serenely

the arriving cold

 

lilacs blossom

moisture saturates

bending boughs

 

plum tree leaves fall

long rainy seasons await

butterflies on privets

 

pummeled and pounded  a butterfly touch

rain upon wind on moist lilacs

weary and beat down surprises the blossom

 

attached to the wind

lilac boughs rain

sorrowful blossoms

 

boughs bend

attached to drops

that cannot be held

 

fist full of blue flowers

weathered woman pleads

sun-faced I squint

 

blue blossom

open eyes and tear heart

release our grasping

 

squinting allows seeing grasping released

desperate determination the impermanent blues

amidst blue blossoms we look without tears

 

not the invisible

impermanent blues

tao made manifest

 

blue blossoms frequent

tram crowds and trgs

averted glances dismiss

 

desire dogs my steps

midriffs pizza and beer

still illusion’s demands

 

physical being

bright seductive subjects

stone water sun

 

courting suffering compassion explosion

wine food flesh crushes stone poems

perpetual play perpetual illusion

 

grief made manifest

being crushed by a poem

compassion bursts forth

 

desire disguises danger

masked perpetually as play

attentiveness demanded
