Three Poems Found in the Back of a Book

Below are three short, hand-written poems found in the back of my copy of Way of the Peaceful Warrior.

Speak what is true
Through mouth or mind or dream
Through action, poetry, intention
Speak what is true
And truth.
Your truth.


An albatross
Glides across the water
Visits islands now and then
But mostly stays at sea


Did I ever meet you?
Will I ever, again?
Beyond the mist, the veil,
I hear the heartbeat of the universe.
Yes, I've always known you.
And you, me.
