Gift Of Mortality

An earthly existence
A universe beyond my minds, comprehension
I die
I rise
Life lessons reviewed
Homeward bound
I am not lost, after all!
I am a willing participant
Serving, the Father, of all creation
His son combined, ‘producing life’ as we know it
Representing them, in everything I do
I am nothing, without Love!
My heart full of faith, loyal service I give
Learning how to unconditionally serve, as the Father unconditionally, loves me
Worshipping our Divine Creator’s existence
Choosing to live, moment to moment
Being as one with ‘Our Universal Father’
No physical permanency
My physicality, disappearing
My mortality existence, I let go of
Death temporary
My spirit alive!
Relief, Peace
‘I am only passing through!’
A unique, experience of mortality 
A gift, I am blessed to experience, to live!

Stadium Seating

Dear Graduate,

… Sometimes, a spring breeze softly blowing 
whispers that a presence needn’t be seen to be felt … 
… And sometimes, the people piling onto the benches 
of packed bleachers sense that a sacred space 
is simultaneously filling … 				
… And often, clustered families gleefully 
crane to glimpse their cap-and-gown-clad graduate,
but once the band pipes up
and you triumphantly take the field, 
you’ll know you’re in perfect view 
of missed and remembered mentors rejoicing
up, up, up so high, so very high … in stadium seating …

… And usually, principals and presidents will proceed
to spawn perfunctory speeches … politely received …
by the assemblage patiently waiting … 

… But always, always, count on this classic climax
creating an incredible crescendo:
Thunderous applause will
rumble through the bleachers,
rambling onto the field, and
rocket through the air,
rolling onto the heavens
as a sprinkling of caps rains
up, up, up so high, so very high
and … for a slice of a second …
before starting to tumble,  
mortarboards are a sea of confetti
tipping their corners in displays of gratitude
to the angels smiling upon you  … from
up, up, up so high, so very high … in stadium seating!
