Scott Kiloby's talks:For each of us, I would say, there are two sides to our nonduality story. There's the side of pain and suffering and the side of freedom along with the reactions of people around us when they see we are no longer known by our complaints and pain. These two poems by Elizabeth, a poet from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, depict both sides. A third poem by Elizabeth makes for an effective triad.Endsvillei dig at my skin til my arms are raw i wait by the phone but you never call these are the things i cant forgive they call it endsville where we liveif you look at the sky you can see the moon the newspapers say that she died too soon there are cracks in the mirrors and holes in the streets there are lies in your eyes, there is blood on my sheetsnothing was said that was ever done in endsville you cant see the sun the playgrounds all are poison cracked where houses stood, there now stand shacksthese are the things i cant forgive they call it endsville where we live the air is wasted, no birds sing they fly aways on broken wingstheres nothing lost that cant be found these days i stand on sacred ground with arms stretched wide, i scream to pray that someday ill forget your namewhere trees once stood are gnarled roots i fold myself in solitude these are the things i cant forgive they call it endsville where we live----------------The Lost Years (a ghazal)We tracked her to a point, then she was lost.
With years that passed, all trace of her was lost.We thought that we had pinned down where she was.
It did not last. All trace of her was lost.Someone saw her standing on a bridge.
It happened fast. All trace of her was lost.They said that was the way that it should be.
The stone was cast. All trace of her was lost.Isabel, what have you done? How could you?
We stood aghast. All trace of her was lost.-----------------seashells drift
seashells gently drift
beneath these white-foam waves,
this endless, rolling sea.
