the mystical deepening evening

thought appears out of mind

i wander around but a hard rain comes down

stranded on the beach i hide in a green moss lined cave

for weeks i survive on fresh water and fruits of the angels

alone except for the ever wheeling stars and birds of the air

alone except for schools of bright fish who dart in the rivulets

the rainbow pools a glowing world

meditating on christ meditating on buddha

feeling of sudden warmth

outside the trickling of water over rocks

meditating on ahimsa with my DMT gland

once a great healer playing himself over and over

sometimes his strength is his weakness

incarnation over and over playing himself every time

the rolling rumbling thunder rolls away and away

lightning so white so electric white sharp on grey

billowing shifting waves

graves of brave sailors

damascus turn around

the old low down

trembling lamb

i am i am

    The cat is restless
    I try to understand her language
    feeling I have pushed others to the back
    but all I know is she sees
    and somehow reveals all
    including barometric fall
    her pink mouth an illuminated
    rose granite mouth of cave
    where I thought I was alone
    and others alone in their own
    a song I tried to ignore comes on
    a hymn I realise
    remembering angels are neutral
    someone or thing higher uniting
    that amazing strangeness with memory of
    blinding imagery
    hope dare I say of
    more abundance of
    flaxen and flux
    I remember being lost
    and turning round but still
    with blind spot till I stopped
    in the proper lot
    and heard a voice from above
    saying look up dummy
    and laughing
    meaning it and not
    knowing I would be afraid
    but anyway.
    ‘Be brave but not too grave’,
    when revelation of face
    minus ominous=
    no thought= presence=
    gentle now
    caption of stars…

    Hi Steve,
    it warms my heart to know that you and Richard are on good terms, but knowing you’ll be playing together is fantastic news. Best wishes for the upcoming shows. Just been watching “Electric Lash ” on “Countdown”. Great song, great performance.
    If you ever see your way coming to Scotland….

    Ahimsa. If all humans were Jains the earth would be a veritable paradise for people and the animal kingdom.
