Catedral De San Juan Bautista en Viejo San Juan, Puerto Rico

The cathedral is currently being repainted and renovated. The ceiling is actually quite white now, but a trick of sunlight and some minor enhancing found this blush pink hiding within the spectrum of light that entered from the windows above.

Minkowski’s Love Poem

Minkowski’s Love Poem

(Einstein’s teacher who suggested space-time in 1908)

 

IMG_6825.jpg

how we see ourselves

is an illusion     an avatar

of wishful thinking

reflected in the eyes of our admirers

every gesture practiced

refined    garmenting

the image of a self 

we can never be 

alone

 a part of the logarithm

of our non linear lives

imagine X in terms of Y

in terms of X

symbiotic

necessary

we dream 

each other’s daily lives

beyond touch 

separated by oceans

by choices 

shed the bravado

the pride   you

are forgiven   forgive me

know

i would rip the fabric of the universe

bending the geometry of space time

just

to kiss you 

again

One True Thing

IMG_6436.jpg

One True Thing

tell me one true thing

demanding without fear

without petulance

just one    between us

what is true

escapes the moment

yet I see my words

spelled out a contrail

in the summer sky

one thing in our world

you laugh predictably

touch your fingertips to your ear

as if I’m silent

noon day heat

light breezes toss my words

beyond you sidestep

the contrails fade

my words hang

hotter than any sun

glaring    yes one true thing

don’t whisper I love you

don’t whisper always

forever is not true

so breakable ephemeral

lies spiral up

you want to say

yes but no but

I can’t    you can’t

say anything can you

truth catches in your throat

while all around us

the truth of nature smiles

bite it if you dare

swallow the world entire

you will never hold it

within you    I know

one true thing

you can’t tell me

anything

Silken Cord

IMG_5225.jpg

Somewhere in this world or another, there is a silken cord and I am tethered to you. You are like the sun. All I want is to orbit around you as the moon orbits the earth and the earth orbits the sun.

Thank You Stephen Hawkings

Without you I never would have been able to understand Quantum Mechanics or realized that Black Holes are sexy!

 

Only 1 of us is traveling @ a constant rate of speed

Sweetheart, you said, stardust, we are only stellar matter

Left spiraling inward to create our own radiating accretion disk

Saying I love you is a forbidden nonlinear algorithm

Still you pull me toward your infinite density

& I willingly fall into your event horizon

My Immortal Ghost

IMG_5614was it simply an alignment of the stars

or are we just fortune’s fools

I know you, my immortal ghost

the always & forever

& the never ever

chance collision of the possible

impossibilly simple to hear

your voice

again
