And God Said

And God Said
and god said
if life were a riddle
I'd have to        split
myself                 apart
just to figure me out
and    meanwhile
I'd be gone

Zen on Ego

Zen on Ego
the subtle and illusive
assumption of existence
a starting place
for other thoughts
an assumed reference-point
the thought of "I"
the "I" thought
where division begins
and wholeness breaks apart
dividing our world
into names and things

Do You Know?

Do You Know?
do you know
the self before feelings
the self before plots and threads
the self that cares not and cares most
the self that twists and thrusts
the self that simply musts
and wanders
through the blood
of a turnip?

Heart Now In

Heart Now In
stop chasing love
stop chasing beauty
stop chasing quality
stop chasing the value
it is not ahead of you
it has nothing on you
it's all in your heart
as soon as you
are no longer
looking for it

Angelic Dust (a poem by B. Dean)

Angelic Dust
the wisdom of no-time
operating in motes
quarks and the etheric

faster than speed itself
with the precision of no-mind
angels giddy with grace

taking forms to tease
forming realities that please
bringing gods to their knees

Hello Now [companionship] (a poem by B. Dean)

Hello Now (companionship)
today I returned
to the present moment
after a long train
of images and thoughts
and as if once again
encountering an old friend
I said out loud "Hello Now"

self-encouraging all
entrances into this,
the present

An Arbitrary Love (a poem by B. Dean)

An Arbitrary Love
it doesn't matter
what one focuses on

it doesn't matter
what one writes down
yet take heed— take heed
these moments are sacred
they reveal your excitement—
your everlasting preoccupation
with all that is possible
