This Year, Together…

May 14, 2017

What have we

Got here? 

A memory

From last year.

A million miles away

We might as well have been.

How different is it now

Compared with then.

You’re just across the room

Instead of ocean.

Your voice all day-

Your face

Not via laptop screen!

You’ve always been here for me

Ready, loving,

No matter what it is

That rolls between.

Everywhere I look

I see two options

Considering one

It doesn’t stop then.

I need to feel You know

You know.

Let my heart

Share my mind’s amen.


The glass half


The grace half:


Of time poured steady,


Making the present


In the Economy

Of Shalom

A promise tending





La Fiddlera deJavu…

1x2 III

Can Deja Vu
Be called back again?
Does she play her tantalizing tunes for pay
Like a hired
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


Echoing Eureka


Harmonizing Bummer


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

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


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

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.’ “
