"Emergency Buddha" = my new poem for my new "Mentoring #Millennials" e-book of poems currently writing

"Emergency Buddha" = my new poem for my new "Mentoring #Millennials" e-book of poems currently writing

Sun stretches across the sky
as Tibetan Terriers remain as poised as a set of lions
at the sides of a colossal gate of an ancient temple in-tune with more than common
awareness surrounding
while people are doing a daily routine some sit or stand swallowing spoon-fed news over a breakfast Good Morning America's advertisers have paid big money to make certain George helps cover-up the collective pressing agenda of & gleam along with polished white teeth & pricey Georgetown haircut

Meanwhile. spraying off city sidewalks is the most refreshing Manhattan movement
meaningfully replicated elsewhere
Bees buzz - stoned on fresh pollen
Above jets dart transporting organic and in-organic matter world-wide.
most unaware beyond self-importance.

small batch coffee is brewing permeating the alley ways of life with a signature pungency
echoing in the caverns of memories like stale beer striking a stranger in a transient tavern but rather innocently as childhood discovery dunked like bread newly anointed in a cup of Morning-Joe.

Brooms help reinforce garden hoses used on sidewalks of last nite brushing away its dust & dirt

Walking down a certain favorite avenue to stroll down she feels sun-light hitting her face and then it's all happening in quick seconds of time as the sun-light blazes in her eyes and she is fully enjoying the way it is making her feel. ..
stimulating the senses
lubricating her spirit
& illuminating her mind's eye.
she releases when hitting the vortex
Powerful ley-lines at perpetual work

A  giant web connects infinite sources of light within our universe
- (or what we allow ourselves to think we know of it) -
Collectively we beam as one. however a select few are detecting vibrations.
shining brighter,
transmitting clearer tones
On their strand of web they share with like-minded-souls
alerting by calls beyond explained language.
akin to a tribe resilient in the face of heavy obstacles.
 - primitively modern yogi.

Is it your turn to die today?

Invoking his emergency Buddha
he defies their eager mistakes
and he escapes the planned
impending death.
And in the reality of enlightenment
slows it all so he can accomplish good.

Another day to perform our art
- and another anticipated night to pray for it together -
as spiders mechanically chatter inside
a cosmic web of life
