Pdlyons's Explorations

today’s words

PD Lyons last offering to us was the evocative Loch Lene. Today’s poem is similarly rich in images but even more spare in language. Do you garden? You may find yourself considering what your plants know of you the next time you’re digging in their beds.

whenever I cry you’re still there, by pd lyons


true

Pdlyons's Explorations

indian pipe @ sleeping giant indian pipe @ sleeping giant

might be a moment in winter

a tinsel a star gone astray

 ~

maybe first color of Autumn

geese not yet on the wing

~

might be your birthday’s in April

someone with curls in their hair

~

or maybe someone with roses

whistling all summery with out a care?

~

there’s not really any rhyme or reason

not really any way to prepare

~

whenever I cry I see you

whenever I cry you’re still here

There Is No Need To Believe by pd Lyons


Pdlyons's Explorations

unknown photographer

What is discovered

is beyond doubt

what is discovered

is beyond choice

free from duality

is certainty

belief has nothing to do

with what is

the teacher shows

the steps

the student takes

the walk

the teacher shows

a way

the student who goes

knows

there is no need to believe

Garbo’s Garage

Pontiac
No other reason
Than liked the ornament
Lush blob chrome

Streaming back
Noble savage
Sometimes
Put her mouth
Around it

No shelves
No Tools
No Debris
Velvet finish floor
Silver dollar oil spot
Otherwise dry as a bone

gretagarbo photographer unknown

garbo forever
