Impending doom, if warning comes before destruction;

Watch out for the curb and stop light

Hot water crisis

Suddenly no hot water
We didn’t have hot water in my childhood
We had to boil water on a kettle
Pour it into a bowl, add cold water and wash
The vital parts.
It was when it was a communal bath, I discovered

Premium Member Sacred Discernment
Perhaps a way to turn
from failed
and often violent
retributive justice
to grab healthy hold
of restorative justice

Would ask,
What is this deep difference
between discerning judgment
and moralistic judgment?

To discern,
and not to condemn,
is mutually empowering
and not autonomously powering over another,
against all Others potentially suspicious,
falling short of...Read More

I can't be the one
When rivers flowed down my wet eyes,
And my pillow was drenched in tears,
You were the one who heard my cries,
And helped me to chase off my fears.
I heard their sermon, of the Sears,
Even after a million tries,
I won't bring you...Read More

?As if a child should understand an  adult’s muddle,

Premium Member Great Gray Fleet
In a fetid little harbor,
A great grey fleet, at anchor, floats.
Its once booming guns are voiceless
About battles of long ago.

Their once fresh paint is peeling off
From oozing rust sores on their hulls.
Mothballed battleships and cruisers
Will weigh anchor for the scrap...Read More

they come thru
one by one
for their treatment
putting on airs
of courage and

they file thru
one by one
the nurses dedicated
bringing cheer
with compassion
sensitive and caring

their smile
like a breath
of fresh air

Good shade under hot sun
She woke up to the song of the rising sun
Dealt with the domestic chores in one quick run
When it's time to set to the duty outdoors,

The Good Ones
The good ones look like their eyes
aren't meant for them
When others light their very souls
and make ammends come hem

That all their love is in a wait
for others to come in
When all their faith's inside each other
for waits denied their sin

Tolerance by itself is not a virtue,
Tolerance by itself not a virtue
Nor is acceptance,
As they generally come with poor eyesight,
No insight,
Are hard of hearing,
And tend to be motivated by fear.

The good news is that,
We still have patience and understanding,
To turn to.

There are abilities that we can...Read More
