Figure 8’s

Figure 8’s I wish I could write something Anything Anything to make a difference Anything to lighten the load But nothing I do really matters Nothing I say changes anything It’s not words that transform our lives It’s love And I’m fresh out of that There was a rush on it during the pandemic The…

Quantum Leap

Quantum Leap What’s the universe expanding into? When I go to its edges Climb out a window  Open a door  What will I step into? What’s this all for? Where will I be? Who will I see? – Will time be there? Gravity?  Stillness? Or rowdy celebration? – What’s the universe expanding into? What is…

Distill

Distill Is there a place in the garden Where I can walk with God Is there a place where He tends Where the weeds and overgrowth Do not choke out the life Or is this survival of the fittest Simply the way it’s to be? – Because the weeds and the overgrowth are life They…

Embrace

Embrace I’ve spent my entire life Trying to be like someone else Trying to get the attention The applause Of all who were in the room But all those people went their own way The room is empty now So silent So quiet And here I am alone With a person I don’t even know…

Pandemic

Pandemic I’m in the midst of a storm called pandemic About to crash on the haystacks of disaster Again The third time is not a charm It’s a humiliating punch to the gut I try not to be mad at God Yet those promises I’ve heard all of my life Are ringing hollow in my…

The Short (completed)

March 1

March 1 It’s happening There’s a movement in the winds Change is once again Making its mark on the universe – Love is in motion About to raise a commotion Within the sleeping chambers of the dead This takes movement instead Of sitting around chatting about ideas – I feel it happening A new chill…

The Point

The Point I don’t want to read anymore I don’t want to think I don’t want to be told what to do Where to go, what to say, what to drink – I don’t want to pray like you anymore God already knows what I need I don’t want to hear anymore The difference between…

The Still (Agates)

The Still (Agates) I sit quite still on what is left Of an ancient and mighty foundation A rock that used to be hidden Unknown Part of a vast landscape That is now pulverized  Into sand, into agate The waves keep on advancing Year after year Day after day Moment after moment So I sit…

Twinkling

Twinkling I’m just sitting here Watching myself get older My skin gets paler My muscles weaker My adipose yielding to the forces of gravity Everything tired of fighting the inevitable – I have to wear my optics to see anymore I don’t want to hear so I don’t At least the food is good The…
