A Message From the Other Side

BIGFOOT PARCHMENT # 23  PATIENCE

This is a planet

where souls got dumped

and lost forever; rebels, artists and the malcontent.

We seldom get along.

We invented war and politics.

The Sasquatch watch, wait

and shake their heads.  They transmigrate

out of their dimension 

into this world of deep dark shit…

and mind-speak to us few that will listen.

I’ve been informed,

Patience is a virtue until it ain’t.”

Peach Pie

PEACH PIE

           by Conversations With Sasquatch Author Richard Rensberry

The Sasquatch children

bring me peaches

ripe and warmed by the sun.

They bring rain water,

nasturtiums and honey comb.

They leave me a stone

rolling pin, a hollowed stump

with ground kenaf flour 

and a huge carved bowl

for mixing fruit,

cinnamon, and cloves.

I heat my stove

to three hundred fifty degrees; 

crack an egg of quail

and glaze the crust; then

clove and cinnamon dust

the honied peaches.  I bake

and whip fresh sweet cream.

Done, I set the steaming pie

on the kitchen sill to cool.  Patiently 

I wait for their little feet.  I can hear them

whisper as the porch boards creak,

then a giggle and a hand

reaches up

to steal my heart.

Sasquatch Thumb Stone

Many gifts from the Sasquatch come,

and this is a thumb stone.

It is something to think on

and a measure of patience.

It is a vessel that carries

the beauty of trust, first in oneself

and then in another.  It is a guide

from the dark to the light.

Mindfulness

As the world evolves

men crawl over it;

the Sasquatch laugh

and knock on wood.

They come as crows

to give wings to the dead;

they come as squirrels

to plant seeds of truth.

They come as wolves

to yip and howl; 

they come as owls

to seek who speaks

without moving their lips.

MindSpeak

He stands at the edge of the creek

in the forest.  If I stare

long and hard enough

it’s a tree, not a Bigfoot.

The tree’s image

has been spoken into my brain.

I can see it there,

thick trunked and multi-limbed,

thoroughly convincing me

it’s an oak or a beech.

Secrets

  Secrets

If you believe Sasquatch

to be an animal,

he most likely will accost you.

If your mind is made up

that he smells like a skunk, he’ll blatantly

stink you.  If you treat him

like a dumb ass, he’ll deceive

and elude your presence

forever.  If you treat him as an equal

he will tell you secrets

of the universe.

Tea

  Tea

From the mighty forest’s

stores of raspberry,

jasmine and dandelion,

Loquiili makes tea.

From the fruits

of pear, sweet apple

and pin cherry,

from the stores of juniper,

rose and burdock,

from the mighty forest’s 

kenaf and licorice,

peppermint and chamomile,

sap of maple,

birch and bitters,

Loquiili makes tea.  

The Sasquatch sip

and dunk their biscuits.

The Afterglow

  The Afterglow

….

With the orb of the moon

haloed and blushing,

two Sasquatch stroll

with fingers laced.  Enticed

by the meadow’s magic

of fireflies sparking,

they pause to embrace.

….

Hungry kisses

beneath the bows of larch.

A negligee of wispy fog

on a bed of pippsissewa.

A chorus of moans….

and an owl’s screech….

eerie cries of howling wolves….

crescendo and peace.

The Awakening

….

The Awakening

….

The journey

from the beginning

was to begin

….

our sacred role as caretakers

of life in the forests, of rivers that cleanse

and the seeds that feed us.

….

It is our duty to imbue

life not death…. to grant sentience 

to stone and bird alike.  Yes, it is Sasquatch duty

to respect and give space

even to the weasel and snake.  But most of all

…..

it is our burden to wake 

the human race.

The Gift

….          

            The Gift

….

A stone shaped like a heart

was left on my doorstep.

It came in the night

without fanfare or noise.

It came as a gift

on little feet, by way of the forest

and a child named Pureesis.  A princess

of a smitten Sasquatch.
