Little Steps 2012

Little Steps


Little steps taken alone:

Small moves in isolation;

Growth, progress, all in

Small steps – no hops; the way to concentration,

Higher being, deeper seeing

And the soundest system

To self-wisdom.


With little more to say, small obstacles still in the way,

Not much elucidates the matter better.

Later what’s in store

Is written in the letter

Of the law

of karma:

Chance and luck and ambience,

All in the chain of cause/effect;

Destiny determined, radiated

By decision, persons and location.


Little is by small degrees – but gets there.

Little has a small effect – but gets there.

Little sounds like trivial.

It isn’t.

Little has a goal

and gets where

We’re all headed for sooner

Or later.

Aiming At More Freedom


Each time I play

I think I’m fine and firm.

It’s fun, I feel fulfilled.

I listen back. I wasn’t free.

How to play more musically?

(Or if you want to use the word)


To sense completion –

What a blessing that would be!

Or is the trip continuous?

A  boundless one?

An endless one?

A ceaseless one?

A changing and ongoing one,

Eternal and ethereal,

A source to dig from, build on.
