Strut

He struts across the table in the sun

Boldly in front of everyone!

Flashing his deep red throat

Bobbing up and down….

As if He was the finest thing around!

For whom is this display for?

Strut your stuff,

No matter who you think is watching!

Itty

The tiniest of flies

Lights on my finger

All iridescent and rainbowed

With crystalline wings.

What does it mean to say

All life matters?

Wrapped & Anchored

He wraps around my foot

Like a living anchor

Holding me fast to this moment in time.

Everyone has a holy duty.

Return

They come with dancing smiles

Prancing across the meadow

Oh Joy unbounded

Return

Return

Return

Sing

I go outside to a chorus of birds.

“ How can you sing at a time like this?”

“How can we not?”

SING.

Zoom Joy

Tiny faces fill my screen,

Humans connecting over the inter webs,

While cats and dogs and babies

Squirm, saunter, and snuggle

In our view.

An Owl hoots outside

An Owl!

Where earlier only destruction reigned.

Reminding us,

We are all unique and we are not alone.

We are undivided in Joy.

We are multiplied.

How now brown cow?

I opine about bovine

That I can not see

They are just down the road from me

But too far to walk

Both of us bound by railings

To keep us safe.

Oh beautiful sacred world,

May we reach out with love in all directions

As we honor the fences of safety.
