Heroes (day 352)

Surging storms unleash
the rapture of rain
the pressure of pain
and things submerged
start to emerge
from the shame
and converge
with the Name
carved into the Core
of our Being

BELOVED

We ARE Heroes
every single day

Amen.

impressions (day 351)

we often stress
the importance
of first impressions
but i'm struck
by the poignance
of last impressions
since we often
don't realize
it's the final time

perhaps we could 
conclude each connection
the same way...

'i'll see you again'

Amen.

surroundtrack (day 350)

savouring spinach salmon shrimp
sipping reserve pinot
overlooking the ocean
my bluetooth speaker
ready to resonate
my blessed soundtrack
but the surroundtrack
of surging sea 
saturates my senses
revelates the Rhythm
of rest
magnifies the Motion
of Mystery

Thanks.

Amen.

right on time (day 349)

according to human
calculated calendaring
he was two weeks late
but in Divine
revelatory Rhythm
he was right on time
and he's Danced
and drummed
to that Rhythm
of Love
in his own special Way
ever since

Thank You!

Amen.

empty (day 348)

not running on it
since it's really not there
not filling it up
since it's not containable
not wallowing in it
since it's lighter than air
not swallowing it in
since it's not consumable

just acknowledging it
as prayer

Amen.

melting (day 347)

'melt the guns
and never more to fire them
melt the guns
and never more desire them'
Your friend Andy's singing
ringing in my ears
and melt our hearts
of shot and stone
that enthrone weapons
and worship fears

Amen.

exploring the ignored (day 346)

an avenue
always ignored
never explored
appeared
and reared
its apparently
pointlessly
redundant
head
like the dead
end it always
has been
to me
but rather
than race
on by
i
STOP
and wonder
about wandering
into worlds
undiscovered...

Amen.
