Elvis + Yoga = Blowin the Scene!

Monday, October 12, 2009


gray days and black coffee
the spot with the leafy salad and bread so thick it cuts like cake
the trees, colorful in dying, celebrating
bits of self on the wind
the ritual of october
pumpkin face
my little pumpkin
you are not that scary with that face
missing a tooth, big smile and downturned
you cannot scare me
i still see
your light inside.


things coming out of closets
fallen bones

the scared ones
the bones i clinged to
(flesh hugging tentacles)
now sacred

falling like drum-syllables
to step-over in crooked mazes

are they mine or yours?
are they mine or yours?

and the teeth fell last
the ones that didn't part to say Anything
the ones
that didn't clomp together like cymbals
to Pronounce
Words Of Love
Like Goodbye, for a reason
take it slow.....

the bones were used for chopping off things
human saws, parting ways through, the quickest

eventually dissolving into sponges
fallen spores
whisper dust of the stuff that used to make us
so real and solid

(i whispered this week for you
and i
when i wanted to yell
finally surfacing
when i can no longer say it:
real as bones
and as impermanent)

Fierce Light Workshops: NYC and San Fran, with Velcrow Ripper!

I just got back from San Fran, where I explored the beatpoet.yogi.dharmabum lineage, friendship, and got to help out at my friend Velcrow Ripper's great workshop, "Fierce Light: Spirit in Action."

Check out Velcrow's film, Fierce Light!

The workshop goes along with an extended Q&A you ask yourself.

How do we take the fruits of our spiritual practices out into the world? What does a peaceful warrior look like off the mat? The cushion? One of my favorite parts of the film is when Thich Nhat Hanh spoke..."If you hear bombs outside the meditation hall, you have to get off the cushion and go help. But if you're involved in social work all the time, you might neglect your practice."

This weekend is the Fierce Light workshop, NYC style...for more info, look HERE We'd love to meditate, yoga, question and explore with you!

Screening: Sat night: Village Zendo: Oct 10th
Workshop: SunDay: TRS: Sunday Oct. 11th:organized by Evolver
