      What a poignant reminder to savour each moment.  Love it, with a bursting heart, and yet without binding to it.  The Buddhists call this non-attachment.  What a challenge this is sometimes when there is so much beauty.
      thank you Eric

      Falling Upwards
      Ripe fruit or rotten fruit.
      Good rain or bad rain.
      It all falls upwards.
      Just one green season
      turns you upside down.
      Spirit is not invisible.
      Spirit is a kitten in your hand
      as you drown.
      It is a crab waving its claws
      as you think of food.
      A mine shaft full of dreams
      you have yet to imagine.
      A honeymoon you
      did not attend.
      You go out with a sombrero
      in a hurricane.
      You go out
      to burn up the world
      like a firefly.
      Baby steps lead to more baby steps
      then your mind drops dead
      but your heart explodes
      like a star.
      The way to fall well
      is to lose many hats
      and never to hang on
      to any branch in the rain
      because that branch
      is also falling upwards
      into a deep
      and heedless love.
