Relief

No, you can not come in.

Not here.

The door shook

As I stood in front of it….

.

So I held it.

You know…

It.

Even though

I had been in the car for a long time…

And really had to go.

You know.

Go.

.

But I held it

And drove to a gas station.

.

But as I thought

About that bark and bluster…

And wondered

How many times have we said no you can’t come out

When they need to go,

You know…

To Go.

( we all need to learn to listen and respect each other)

(Not to mention, practice radical hospitality)

Curtains

I am fond of saying

The light of Love

(However you name the Divine)

shines thru many windows,

Our jobs are to open the drapes…

But oh,

We forget about the sheers!

Sometimes we just need someone on the other side

To help us find our way.

Plumes and Poms

A silky white plume

Waved like a banner

Followed by a fluffy white pompom

That Pounced and bounced

Through the field of green.

There are possibilities we can’t see,

Follow them!

Tilted

Somedays you feel tilted

It helps to have friends

To get back

Upright.

Flower Bed

A flower bed

Is not a pun,

Nor figure of speech…

There is truth at your fingertips and within your reach.

Bugs and butterfly,

And feral cats…

The mewing kitten and biting gnat

All rest there

In this bed of flowers.

.

Rest your head in a place of dreams,

There’s more to this world

Than it seems.

Present Healing

I had dental work today…

A wonderful thing

Denied to many…

Still,

I was thankful for dear friends,

Who did not require me to throw the ball,

But simply sat with me.

.

That is truly, often,

all we need to heal.

Fear

fear

Like and angry cat

Lies in wait

It pounces

When you feel backed into a corner…

.

Remember

The world is still round,

All things are possible.
