Sonnet: A Loftier Perspective

(Scientific research shows increasingly that the sights and sounds of nature are beneficial to us in a whole list of ways.

There are those who point out that Heaven on Earth is actually promised to us. We affirm it in church every time we pray.

There are those who theorize that, to see it, all we have to do is to go ~ armed with our new understandings and abilities ~ back ~ to the Garden)

Coming Into Ashland

Life had gotten very strange
In my mid thirties, one odd year ~
My situation rearrange
Itself be needed, this was clear

I consulted then a map
To see what might appear
Appropriate — friendly, mayhap,
And also reasonably near

talking to tesla

i was actually
quite happy there at the end
with my birds
