Rumi’s Second Visit: Poetry by Lance Giroux

(Oct 30, 2020 at 9:18 AM)

And when dreams come
Let them
For you are half asleep

Into your room
They parade
And invade peaceful solitudes
And raging wars

Prior empty fortresses
Without which
Unguarded awakenings
Would unfold

Embrace them

You are never
Completely asleep
Unless unaware
You are
Lance Giroux

Lance Giroux was born in a remote Arizona mining town. He served in the Army until 1977. Post military he began working with individuals, businesses, government agencies, and schools - assisting in effective communication, service, and leadership. In 2000, he began to understudy and be mentored by the American author George Leonard – the award-winning editor of Look Magazine. The arrangement demanded international travel. While he traveled, he wrote and documented what he saw, felt and learned - www.alliedronin.blogspot.com. In 2017, Lance bought a cabin near Cobb Mountain and moved. In 2019, he opened Aikido of Konocti in order to serve Lake County with the philosophy and practices of Aikido, a Japanese martial art. He travels less. He enjoys the forest, a place where he can slow down, listen, practice ... and write.
