The Center Holds

shadows play
on the river of leaves
stillness inside movement

A Complexity Of Symmetry

circle upon circle
the center
echos the edges


like the eye
of a hurricane
stillness at the center

Circle Theory

in the bedlam of branches
some center emerges
the circle where beginnings and endings meet

Expansion of Consciousness

a psychedelic trip
to the center of the coneflower
where everything is groovy

Center of the Cosmos

All the mysteries of the universe
are contained
in a wild flower.


The pines encircle the most ancient one
who has lost her needles but not her magnificence.
Sacred is the center.
