Let Go

The psalmist said, “Be still and know that I am God.”
It’s even harder to Let go and let God.

Journey

Since we’re all getting off the train at the same station
why are some of us in such a hurry?

Does a seeker know she will never find what she is seeking?
Does she care?
Nevertheless —
she remains a light in the darkness.

Lichens

While chasing yawns with deep breaths, I wondered:
When and where was the first WTF written on a cave wall?
Like-minded lichens gather together on the rock of time.

We Justify

What we can’t classify we deify.
That’s the way we justify.
But does that really rectify?

Okay to Be

I don’t want to be a celebrity.
I just want to see what’s wrong
and what’s right with me.
Then it’s okay to be.

This Game

Everyone needs a scapegoat:
Someone to float their boat,
Someone to blame for all their shame.
The Nazis had the Jews;
The rednecks have the blacks.
Is life a game of jacks?

The Real Reason

Why did the chicken cross the road?
That’s where the rooster was.

Heaven Is

Guess what I saw?
I know this experience:
There is no door
to the seemingly
elusive heaven.
It’s right here,
right now.
Heaven is that moment
right between life
and death,
the moment right
before orgasm.
It’s not a negation
of life or of death.
You might even hear
the ambulance siren.
I know I do.

Potential

Oh, you know it’s true:
You can do whatever
you want with your life,
be whatever
you want to be!

Really? Bullshit!
Each person has strengths
and weaknesses.
Help me see mine.
Give me guidelines.
Show me the structure
that houses my potential.
From there, I can bloom;
I am free.

Looked out my window at 3:00 A.M.
Saw the full moon floating
thru some scattered stratus:
God’s graffiti.

To me nothing better displays the power of God than a thunderstorm.
We understand the causes and the forces, but during the storm itself,
we can only watch in wonder and respect from a safe place.
Then when it’s all over, the peace of God returns.
