Birthday Poem (for Radames Ortiz)

When I got home from my trip to Miami there was a pleasant birthday poem waiting for me in my Facebook inbox. The poem was written by J.P. Dancing Bear and he has graciously allowed me to share it with you. To learn more about J.P. and his poetry, please visit his website.

The Goggles Are Not Rose-Colored (after RoKu’s “Clarence”)
for Radames Ortiz

you see the world differently than others around you: like having special goggles on: you see the vibration of all things: the energy inside: you don’t like to think of things in terms of good or bad: but some things have a different hum to them: you’ve read about black matter in the universe: the trapping of light: dust and gas clouds as large as a galaxy: background radiation: pulsars: binaries: the intense energy of a galactic core: and it all fits together with what you see through these glasses: you hold your hand up to look at it: a small star system swirling in your palm
