POEMS: “Hey my friend”… by Tarchin Hearn


Auckland, March/01

(In response to a young man dropping out of an urban retreat)



Hey my friend . . .

What are you doing that’s meaningful with your life?

Are you birthing beautiful thoughts into the world?

Hey my friend . . .Are you awake?

Is the fire of passion lighting your way,

burning the demons of doubt and complacency?

Hey my friend . . .

When did you last stand under the stars;

the first tinge of dawn reminding of ever fresh mystery?

Or do you roll out of bed and go to work with repetitive sleepiness

dulling your life, like a chronic anesthetic?

Hey my friend . . .Where are your companions on the path?

Or have you taken to hanging out at the bar of ego conformity?

Hey my friend . . .Who and what do you love?

What are you growing in your garden?

Don’t think,”I don’t have time for this.”


My Friend . . .Wake Up!
