Make it to home
Pushing last strength left
Removing shoes
Head forward
Being first to the finish line

Flush cheeks
Wandering mind
Sense of relief
Being safe
Dropping everything

Dive into comfy clothes
Brew tea
Double cups
To keep warmth
After cold air outside

Slowly sipping
Melting memories today
Forgotten and done
No longer bother me

Acknowledgement to myself

True friendship is rare
It’s one in a million
A mirror image, a twinning
Mutual acknowledgement
In knowing
She’s the one 
Who pays attention
Listens with intention
Can read your thoughts
Before you think them
With whom you share
No conditions
Sometimes critical
Even reproachful
But always understanding
Who keeps you in line

Souper Tuesday
Happy Souper Tuesday
To my buddies on the Soup!
Despite our different backgrounds
We’re united as a group.

We put our thoughts in writing
Hoping other souls will read,
Acknowledgement the one reward
We really want or need.

If we could meet in person,
Very few of us would...Read More

Thank You
You give a gift and you expect
Acknowledgement, at least,
Yet somehow, in this current age, 
The thank you nod has ceased.

No note, no phone call - it gets worse -
No words when face to face.
To me, this lack of manners
Is an...Read More

Premium Member Discipleship Is
Discipleship is giving unconditionally
Expecting no acknowledgement or thank you,
Hoping the person or people will understand Jesus' light.

Discipleship is listening without criticism
Not suggesting, not commanding,
Learning and sending light like the Holy Spirit does.

Discipleship is introducing rather than leading
Discipleship is inviting rather...Read More

Waking up, in a light gray four poster bed.
With flowers and ribbons, painted
on the ceiling above my head.

Those decades ago, those tender memories

the boy who lives next door

who smiles at me sometimes in the corridor

Premium Member Spiritual Challenges, Naturally
I have questions
about spiritual problems
with natural causes.

These questions
assume a metaphorical double-bind
co-passion in-between
Left with Right hemispheres
in Nature with Spirit bilateral dialogue

Informed, I hope,
by win/win historic experiential roots:

What has "nature v spirit" tension meant
in my life?

What have been my win/win

I ask for so little

Premium Member Hospital Note

The surgeon had successfully removed his libido,
then had fed it to the hospital cat.  Afterward,
a series of stuttering expeditions through mind-tunnels
condensed days into moments.
Corridors became tubes,
empty except for a memory of a pretty nurse, 
a few demented ghosts---their...Read More
