Spectator Sport (a poem by B. Dean)

Spectator Sport
waiting FOR something
waiting FOR

take away the FOR
and experience eternity
(waiting for nothing)

watching the dust blow
across the sidewalk
smiling inside

Only Here, Only Now (a poem by B. Dean)

Only Here, Only Now
when I split myself
feeling so far away
wanting what's missing
I watch my pain
from a distance, thinking

this, the problem
that arose when I first assumed
there is another life somewhere

Resemblance (a poem by B. Dean)

there is nothing
more beautiful
than witnessing
an idea of a person
step aside
that love may prevail
with all its
unconscious intelligence
and all the time
still resemble
a human being

My Yearning is Full (a poem by B. Dean)

My Yearning is Full
my yearning
is something full
the yearned for
will never exist

all in order
to keep me alive
and alert to possibility

Enlightened Midas (a poem by B. Dean)

Enlightened Midas
the only way
to turn base metals
into gold
is to realize
that everything
is this same base metal

there is no
greater or lesser wonder
it is all the same

Beautiful Awakening (a poem by B. Dean)

Beautiful Awakening
people who focus on
and care for their souls
carry a special beauty
around lingering about
glowing and exciting
radiating with wonder
a universal innocence
the eternal origin
of every world

Lost and Found (a poem by B. Dean)

Lost and Found
I am not anything
that I aspire to become
I am in no position
that I dream of
I only have what I am doing
which isn't mine at all
