Digressions of Gratitude

Heaven descent
On concrete cement
On this suburban avenue
I am bent with gratitude
And pause lament
To halt and view
These blessings I’ve kept
Here I am caused to stop
From inward contempt
And with this quick moment
Feel a heaven present
See my soul rest
Sudden peace commence
Under shivering fall trees
And quiet traffic far off
And ever craving I call
With gratitude given
And holding hard
I take time to digress

Candle in Ash

It’s really actually gone
Like a candle in ash
I feel old inside
I must have finally
Run out of breath
And silent, fainted
And woke up broken
My heart has been wilting
And somehow
Far too early
Fell far dark
I see
It’s actually really gone
And I feel
And can no longer ignore
A real, transformed space
Indelible and cold
And I am somehow
Something else
And I am somehow
Something else

Quilted

Lovely lives so painted
So cracked and colored in
Each new beauty
Is torn at the rims
So shredded but rebound
With stitching thread wound up
And all the corners gowned
With colored patching
And put together, traced
With every color
And thick, golden lace

Child’s Sight

Art obsession
A redemption initiated
In seeing things deeper
With a new lens
Opening up in other shades
Like a new energy
Pulsing under skin
Crawling electricity
Lighting up senses
And tingling in each little finger
Feeling light and curious
And motivated to move
And seeing things never known before
A light long lost
An intimate bliss incarnate
A child’s sight reborn
In older eyes
