An Introduction



It’s time I introduce me, myself.
Hi, I’m Jim. Glad to meet you.
Maybe we met before. I wouldn’t know,
there are possibilities though,
interesting the directions this could go in,
Perhaps we met

but couldn’t know a friends face
from a strangers soul. And so it goes
in this particular time, universal age,
space or unfortunate case
for a self we dwell in, or sin we sow.
It’s quite possibly true. I say possible

because I only grow
in directions of impulses I know that I know
for sure are golden and prospect-able; revelations
and surging illumination that corresponds
to emanating signals
from my intuition

and senses,
form The Ground. Yes,
I hear Her wholly, I hear You,
that old worldly-wise presence and authority, the Cosmic Sound


The Everything and All.
Could anyone but She ever know me?

  1. Its been an age since we met here. Your comments on my blog post are the most numerous and enlightening i find looking back and i miss your exquisite[poetry and your presence. ive been through a bad patch if you care to know with depression in the aging process but have fully recovered with help and at 78 am back in the saddle. if you visit my site again you will find out what i experienced if that still interests you as a blogger friend. Blogging basically helps you tell your tale in prose poetry and what information you have experienced over life and the comments become even more important than the post ofttimes Well in the end after two years of seclusion all i can say is i miss my blogger friends and would like to renew contact if they are still there and interested

  6. FlutePlayer says:

    Nice to meet you.

  7. Wow I like this! You seem to be reaching deep down and pulling up gold! Jim I believe our hearts are capable of loving and knowing and being known by a good handful of loving souls. Each love is different so more deeper then others but as we grow so does our capacity to love and know! I hope your heart is doing well! Nice to meet you Jim!

    OH! Suddenly I saw it! There’s lots of stairways and walls, and a house at the end of it all. I could see it in 3D, instead of flat colour! (The painting, that is!) Nice!

  9. nice – like who is it that one met, someone familiar, someone yet alien.
    missing your presence at my new posts though – so come view – good wishes

  13. Did you just write this today? You’re amazing.

    • yes.. I’ll explain more later, but I wrote a long one, finally decided to privatize it and break it up and that’s what I’m doing now. Wrote these 60% last night in the one, but that poem works much better in 3 or 4 parts. I’m liking them, and glad you are too, my busyminded girl. 😉
