The sun blinks…yawns, then rises
as the moon falls to earth–a dying rose before the last petal drops–
passing the torch to another day.
The eyes of Earth open
giving witness as Life moves in and out
as bird, leaf, butterfly,
the lowly rock, robin, human;
exalted or reviled.
The One becomes the many and masquerades as form,
each thread weaving a tapestry of existence.
Interconnected. Vanishing. Replenished.
Chariots of shooting stars spin across the night sky
into the Cosmos
between the planets, beyond galaxies.
A glowing halo of conscious space is awakening
becoming aware of itself.
The “I” of Infinity…..
Ye who come here;
As you peruse these pages,
view them as riding an Express Train through Time–
the same train we are all on.
When the train stops
and the Conductor turns around to tell you:
“This is where you get off”,
it doesn’t matter if you are riding first class or coach.
When your journey ends….
will you know who you truly are?
With hands untied and held in yours,
you free me,
release me from the bonds of Earth.
You be me
With no between between us.
The fallacy of you and me,
of all the forms that make a “we”
as does the world through which we see
creating our false identity
but fails to find and fails to see
the portal where we merge into Eternity.
The pattern again.
As never before
I feel the threat of loneliness loom
and the lure of the sensual ephemeral pleasures
that may appease the shallow fragmented self
that seeks escape to numb the self
that clamors for truth.
Such a vacuum lingers.
Passionless. Without a country,
belonging nowhere and to nobody;
for attachment forms strings
that pull we puppets.
Have I been asleep for 20 years or merely in a stupor?
When I probe into my inner storehouse,
there is nothing but the echo of a confused cry
tethered within the cell of a false identity
reverberating against the musty darkness

…with a broken wing
the Human Spirit
poems by Ronaye Hudyma
Whether contemporary, classic, or peppered with Elizabethan eloquence, this profound ensemble of 130 poems is not stationary. They move as if conducted with a maestro’s baton –fluid between the euphoria of life and love, the drama, the anguish of death and loss, with every nuance of human emotion spilling upon the pages.
They are poignant words written with the transparency of youth, gathering maturity and experience, evolving to wisdom, into the spiritual realm.
This is not just poetry. There are a million stories in each poem. Once for each of us. From the teenager discovering their individuality, the young adult challenged by relationships and the world around them, to the Elder denizens of Earth, who cherish their memories as veterans of life, this is a book to be read and reread, a keepsake to console, embrace and affirm your recognition of the truth within yourself that is already there.
A child again,
I am bewitched, bemused
by the discoveries of life,
amazed at the phenomena
of consciousness and existence.
Like a bud that suddenly bursts into bloom,
what smoldered in the shadows
looms into spontaneous illumination
as the mystery unfolds:
Forms drift in then evaporate
Yet I remain.
It comes; Arises.
All personhood dissolves.
I am here;
a space of clear seeing
intense, keen, alert,
concentrating upon itself
yet turning in to focus on that which focuses;
Filled with Being–
The Empty has come to claim me.
There is nothing else.
In the darkness
a sun sinks down
through jungles of imagination
mired in mind
through wastelands of “why?”
In the daylight
a moon rides high
along a palpitating phrase
through saturated emptiness
where winds blow pollen
on a suspended seed.
The fear has passed
and my passion has burnt away
but what remains is like
the contentment of a confession.
