The Unfolded Savior

i return to my device and the word application asks
want to save? implying my previous work unsaved,
i reply Yes for i trust my earlier self enough
to have made some excellent changes

Once we count the stars, what then
will remain to sustain our love?

I’ve nowhere to turn except
to the expression of the timeless.
Though I am tired I forge ahead
convinced that the road leads direct
to the fount of some wisdom yet
undiscovered. Sadly, I am mistaken.

Today I sensed
in the care of a plant
what I needed to do

Today I sensed
during care of a plant
what I needed to do

Today I sensed that
the care of it all
is what I needed to do

Today I sensed in
the care of it all
that I was needed

The March of Little Soldiers


What I thought were
tiny ants
were really splays of sun
that turned out to be
wee ants

Purpose, Perhaps


In the vast empty
that is existence
dark and cold and lonely
without purpose, reason, or rhyme,
somewhere at this very moment
to the cheers of her mom and dad
a young girl rounds third
and is waved on home,
for she is the winning run.

A Different Hue


My meaning shifts along side those
whom I am juxtaposed.

Less Than Mindful Amble


I find myself
on this road again
so soon I’ll be lost
at the turn.

Just as song the words flow
in time, gating the sense.

To know is
in the making.

The interval is not known
until the second tone.
