Out in the Open

It is life’s work to recognize the mystery of the obvious

~ Jim Harrison

Swim without water
Whisper without words
Watch without eyes

See the dream in gorgeous Technicolor

Paint the light
Soaring in the picture of language
Beneath the breath of the lion’s roar
Between lonely and forever
When the soul sang the garden into being
And the moon was a berry worth picking

  1. Between lonely and forever
    When the soul sang the garden into being
    And the moon was a berry worth picking

    When the real becomes obvious and the obvious becomes “real,” life ceases to be an adventure. Great job capturing the otherness that awaits the opening of our non-eyes!
