memory (day 66)

it seems that
remembering
(as participant
or catalyst)
possesses
a Power 
beyond nostalgic
sentiment

when i remember
you or
you me
a picture
on cardboard
in hand
or billboard
in brain
transfigures
in Spirit
and resurrects
a person

WOW.

Amen.

friends (day 65)

sometimes
life gives you
the privilege
of traveling with people
through seasons of unbearable pain
or inexpressible joy
and your presence
helps make the journey
more bearable

sometimes
it's the opposite
and the Gift
is indescribable.

thanks for
true friendships.

Amen.

the Dance (day 64)

for me
it usually only happens
under the cover
of darkness and swirling lights
under the influence
of inspiriting beverages
but in the sterile fluorescent light
under the influence
of inspiring beloveds
it happened...
i joined in
the Dance.

Amen.

(b)Earth Day (day 63)

stunning Sun-rise
but we are revolving
wondrous wisdom
but are we evolving?
dystopian destruction
we are not resolving
universe expansion
but are we devolving?

may we hear it
though we recoil
and fear it
we are soil
and Spirit

Amen.

Face on the water (day 62)

is it
Magnum P.I.
or Brutus
from Popeye?
whoever
it is
seems to be
having difficulty
breathing
through the fog

Sunlight
refracted
by clouds
reflected
on water
percepted
in air
from a perspective
once impossible
to perceive

thank You.

Amen.

liberty and justice for ALL (day 61)

lawyers
tend to get
a bad rap
(often understandably)

but then
one comes along
with compassion
for the enslaved
and passion
for their justice
and freedom
and their legal knowledge
transforms into loving wisdom
and anointed advocacy

thank You,

Amen.

sleep (day 60)

synapses
and sinews
muscles
and membranes
larynx
and lungs
limbs
and limbics 
and lobes
all need their chance
to take a break
from the Dance
float in subliminal space
rest in transcendental Grace

for gifts unbidden and essential,
thanks. 

Amen.
