Q & A

The questions we ask make the answers we get. So, we must pay attention and listen first. Being ruled by the numbers, misses ourselves. Calculated assessment is meaningless   Rain measured in volume and duration makes life an endless series of droughts and floods. Soaked by the rain and absorbing its wetness, be filled with […]

Whisperer

The Wind whispers, sometimes softly, sometimes loudly.   Sometimes She pushes me along. Sometimes She pushes me back.   She caresses me with a gentle warm breeze. She throttles me with a blustery cold gust.   To hear Her word, I must listen, for I know not from whence She came, or where She goes. […]

Threadbare

Alas, our tapestry is ripped; but, we’re not irreparable. Woven and inseparable, part of the cloth, we can’t be snipped.   Fashion glorifies the rend, the world marginalizes tears. Separation shreds without cares, love, though, is the cloth on the mend.   Knitting a patch is not magic. Despite feeling so abandoned; our unlovedness is […]

Shortstop

We sing in unison, then settle in to “Play ball”   He turns and squats before Her, he bows his head and prays   “Help me”, he asks silently, “I beg you, keep me whole.”   Ready, he springs to his feet, filled with Her mercy   He plays with abandon on his toes   […]

Let Go Let God

It’s hard to give over control, as if, I ever had control. It’s hard to say, “I’ve lost control”, assuming I was in control.   I’ve noticed some just want answers, and there are really no answers. I’ve noticed some make up answers, despite questions without answers.   I cannot create solutions grasping at straws […]
