losing (day 10)

our minds
in the chaos of over-stimulational fascinationism

our heads
in the craziness of delusional fanaticism

our hearts
in the crush of malignant narcissism

our lives
in hopes of finding them
in Your mercy
and Your grace
and peace...
Amen.

let go (day 9)

Let go of your lunch
in the middle of the night

Let go of your hunch
and let your trust take flight

Let go of your tea
and fry your cyber-memory

Let go, set it free
and let it be.

the wildest thing (day 8)


locked in my room
scaling my vine-like walls
sailing my private ocean
donning my beastly crown

roaring my terrible roar
gnashing my terrible teeth
rolling my terrible eyes
showing my terrible claws

while the Wildest Thing
giggles and grins

Amen.

my left foot (day 7)


Sitting perfectly still
in my therapist's office
left leg crossed
over right

Feeling perfectly stuck
in my journey inward
left brain conquering
over right

Yet something stirs
petrified left foot
persistent inner Pulse
subtle sacred Rhythm
under reason

Thanks.
Amen.

illuminescents (day 6)


Some shine brightest
through the darkness
of disillusion and despair.

Some laugh loudest
in the stillness
of suffering and silence.

Some act bravest
facing the terror
of temporality and transience.

Some are overlooked
oysters producing pearls.

Thanks for ALL.
Amen.

running (day 5)


Away from
the past
present
future
the worrying
waiting
world
my sorrowing
sighing
self

Through
the cosmic
clamouring
confusion
the contracting
convulsive
confession

Towards
the harrowing
hallowed
healing
my intermittently
integrating
self

For revelatory redemptive restorative rhythm,
thank You.
Amen.

breathed (day 4)


Your ancient people
would not speak
Your name
perhaps because 
that name 
was not meant
to be spoken...

but breathed.

Yaaaaah...veeeeeeh.

atheists, apatheists, 
fundies, fascists, faithfuls,
lefties, lovers,
religious, irreligious,
knowingly, unknowingly,
inhale...exhale...

Aaaaaah...yeeeaaah.

Thaaaaaank...Yooooooou.

Aaaaaaahmen.
