the flowers wake up at dawn

the endless pale heavens call to me again 
reminding me that i am alive and free 
this moment

what do i want --
to see the flowers wake up at dawn 
and spread their petals 
before the unending glory 
of the newly risen sun.

in the dream i wasn't at the battle 
but i attended the dying warriors after 
not like a doctor 
but like a priest 
i held them and prayed 
and closed their eyes

True change is within; leave the outside as it is.
-Dalai Lama XIV

Politics is the entertainment branch of industry.
-Frank Zappa

Whoever controls the media, the images, controls the culture.
-Allen Ginsberg

James Taylor/Sweet Baby James (1971)
