into and with (day 384)

running into the Wind
dries your eyes
which is soothing
if you're awash
in tears
but painful
if you've cried
your ducts dry

running with the Wind
lifts your lumbering limbs
and shuttles your Spirit
into the Sky

Thanks.

Amen.

in praise (day 383)

for a sacredly
spinning planet and
sensationally shining Light
and bovine valves
in human vessels
and expanding lungs
and beloved breath
and beating hearts
and pumping pulses
and heart-shaped pillows
and soul-shaped pauses
and patient paces
through healing spaces...

Thanks.

😊

(the view into which i stepped into a new day...)



alone not alone (day 382)

wandering
in the Wilderness
incapacitated
by the isolation
associated
with the Atypical
surrounded
by the Silence
stunned
by the silent
discovery
from the desert
acceptance
of being alone
unveils
a ubiquitous unity
we
are not wandering
anxiously
all
alone...

Amen.

Stardust (day 381)

ashes to ashes
dust to dust
slow to recognize
hard to trust
in mortality
when my vocationality
involves clamouring
about immortality
forgetting to realize
that embracing the reality
that everyone
dies
reveals the surprise
that this dust
is
Stardust

Amen.

DustLove (day 380)

we're made of It
and It shows
It sticks to us
when we touch It
or It touches us
we can't wash It
away even when It
hurts
the Dust
from which we come
to which we return
is Love.

VaLENTine's Day (day 379)

apparently St. Valentine
returned to the Dust
from which he came
embracing his mortality
engaging his humanity
for the sake
of the immortality
of Love
embodying the Divinity
of that Dust
and Love
crosses and hearts
One and same.

Thanks.

Epiphanies (day 378)

within the cracks
between the lines
behind the scenes
lie the signs
of startling truths
and stunning graces
if we open
senses and spaces
eyes to see
ears to hear
minds to perceive
hearts to receive
Epiphanies
all
around

Amen.
