The glass half

Empty

The grace half:

Full

Of time poured steady,

Slowly

Making the present

Whole

In the Economy

Of Shalom

A promise tending

Hopeward

Eve-

Eventually

Home.

La Fiddlera deJavu…

May 5, 2017

1x2 III

Can Deja Vu
Be called back again?
Does she play her tantalizing tunes for pay
Like a hired
Musician?
Once, behind time’s back perhaps,
I proposed to her a deal
And once, upon a wrhyme with time,
Did she, my surety steal…
“You may have all my memories
If I may have your fiddle.”
                         “Ah!  Better yet, I’ll take only the rest,
                          And leave you with… a riddle.”
And I live life paying
Now and then,
And ever and anew,
For the daft, half-remembered “deal” I made
With La Fiddlera deJavu!

We’ve got our windows for pillows

And words like cool sheets

In summer.

The rain’s fingers

On the window’s pane

Like nature’s gentle drummer.

Where else should we be?

You over there in relation to me

Sharing the distance

Graciously

Echoing Eureka

And

Harmonizing Bummer

Both

Feeling like the latest comer

To an ocean

Full of ebbing dreams

Flowing in between.

Parallel Horizons…

April 26, 2017

There was

You

And

Me

And

You and Me

A want meant to be a want

Not meant to be

“You go this way;

I’ll go that”

Embracing fair well

While back to back

A world of dreams

Enter : continental

Tears as oceans

In consequential

Eyes half full

Of lies half empty

Gazing out over

Parallel horizons

Still close

Enough to

Tempt Me

Onward 

ZenoIn the absence of
A first stone’s throw…
May I a pilgrim stumbling
Infinite
Mercy know

Diá mésou
O paradox

“When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, ‘Who then can be saved?’  But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’

Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.

For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.” -Jesus, again.

“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” -Yep, also Jesus.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, you also love one another.” -Mhh hmm… same.

“Go, and sin no more.” -this one too

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’ “

 

Why-Asking
 "Where are we going?"
 All upside-drowned
 Reflecting in rippled silences
Amidst the ebb and 
Flowing sounds
 As if...
 These vacant blue airs
 Were
Heaven's very oceans bound
 With/in me.



Upon seeing a friend's picture 
taken from a Seattlian dock.
 ...

Thanks to Emily Thomas, for being said friend 
and for taking said picture. :)


I’m remembering

With tears

Your sad stories, now.

How they floated

Like embers

Of cherished childhood-

Wow!

 

And that… that pain! I felt

Flowing through your past

Into my wild,

Open heart

Wound fast

 

 

To it…

 

 

Now, of both our pasts,

A tender part.

Turning sharp

Pain upon pain

Pitting

Blame against Shame

Carelessly

Closing up

Our wounded hearts

 

 

To love

 

 

N’one? N’more?

Wisemen may cry

Peace! Peace!

But

It all feels so much like war.

“For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and to provide for it. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past.” -P.H.
