a question
that in his death

the body dropped
away of limited sight

has he knowledge
revealed to him

does he know
the movement of fate

has he knowledge
of the future

or of other mysteries
that baffle us



or is revelation
possible irregardless

even as far as
indifferent to solid or not

as lightening
potential appears

out of empty space
yet in space

transcending
life or death

heaven
or earth


***

For Pat Payne
1928 - 2016

So beautiful. Resonates with my own thoughts too.

Thank you for your comments. Pat was a great guy, and we will miss him very much. He helped many people ... he was genuine, authentic, compassionate and upfront. A master woodworker in the second part of his life, he made exquisite custom "God Boxes" and he gave me one. Each one was unique, as we all are. He died a few days after his 37 AA anniversary, and a week after his birthday. I wish I could have gotten to know him better, but I know him and his quirks and expressions ... his compassion and warmth ... we come and we go without warning.

To inspire, encourage, show kindness; in so many words, to love, is a life well lived. Sounds like he did this. Hoping to transmit even a fraction of that to my fellows.
By the way, I don't know why my comments post twice. This is unintentional.

It is okay, and thank you ... plus no offense taken
