Places and Spaces


Dedicated to my son

I heard an architect

take a deep breath

when he saw the space

he thought he had only

envisioned in his imagination;

he was convinced

his Creator was the only

One capable

of designing such a beautiful place.

 

He asked himself if he should

manifest his desire

to expand his plan

to shape consciousness

to insist on harmony

to expand his perspective

beyond the first womb

where vital lessons about living

were learned in stillness

 

The architect translates

his dreams into reality

to delight the eyes

of humankind

 

He designs the places and spaces

that help us contemplate nature

without boundaries

to let us know we are interconnected

All One

 

Clouded sky

 

Look  around

The view is unique

because Architects

have challenged the skies

they’ve  discovered the shadows

that oppress the spirit

and redirect the influences

that affect the soul.

Look around

how some spaces remain

indestructible

free to inspire

new generations

full of light and truth.

 

Look around for

the places and spaces

be ready to be mesmerized

over and over again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Olympic Fever

Five rings commute to the heavens

announcing the great meeting of athletes

Olympia! Olympia!

Nations proud!

flags flare and unfurl

as champions chant

Citius, Altius, Fortius

Peaceful exhibition

of strength and character

Citius, Altius, Fortius

Cheers and tears

of glory

the best of human endeavor

celebrated

Can we keep the momentum?
