EMDR (day 336)

eyes darting
back and forth
to and fro
disorienting
to reorient
disintegrating
to reintegrate
desensitizing
to resensitize
disconnecting
to reconnect
the paralyzed adult
with
the parentified child
into
a reanimated human
a reunified being
a reconciled Beloved

Night and Day (day 335)

those ancient astronomers
hopping on humps
dancing over dunes
in Divine darkness
necessary to navigate
the cosmological Canopy
the numinous Night
but what inspired
their insatiable imaginations
during the Day?
did stardust-turned-sand exfoliate
disillusionment and illuminate
the Light within?

Amen.

four Ships (day 334)

no donkey
or camel
but i'm
traveling to
my destination
with a
broader vision
of Stars
and space
at velocity
beyond reciprocity
but enabling
an embrace
of mortality
an expression
of friendship
a reunion
of fellowship
a celebration
of kinship

Thanks.

Amen.

Child (day 333)

we ruminate
despair and cope
help us, Child
and be our Hope

we wander through
these senseless days
help us, Child
to be Amazed

we stumble in
these darkest nights
help us, Child
to be the Light

this
Day

Amen.

Remember (day 332)

the older
i get
the more 
i forget
no wonder
this number
one blunder
is addressed by
the Thunder
to a nation
cast asunder
by amnesiac
lack of
memory
of identity
and Spirituality
Love compressed in
one commandment

Remember.

Amen.

Sing (day 331)

what is it like
to be so filled 
with Love
that you use 
every breath
until your last
to Sing of 
that Love
to others
so that they will
join in the Song?

dear Harold knows.

Rest
In
Peace.

Amen.

solidarity (day 330)

awakening
to the sound
of a vigilante
reporter attempting
to slice through
a public servant
like a machete
through butter
but the butter
withstands destructibility
and maintains solidity
by affirming
a Reality
of Unity
more powerful
than polarizing
brutality

Amen.
