All it takes is a hike to part the gray clouds and get the creative juices going. I can't say that I wish I would have hiked sooner, because a lot of good churning was going on under those gray clouds. It was all perfect.
Anyway, I offer my take on...
The Best Feeling in the World
It is this:
The moments when all definitions of myself,
judgments of rightness or wrongness,
any ideas of being separate,
and any awareness of time
and Life, pure, raw and instinctual
is free to take over.
Sometimes it looks like this:
Swimming naked in the ocean
that resides within the eyes of another.
Dancing with a red-tailed hawk
as he circles the sky.
Cresting a hill and feeling my heart opening up
like the field of snow-covered grasses below.
Playing with velvety ears of
love disguised as my best canine friend
Riding wild and furious class IV rapids
of orgasm until they again become a lazy river.
