Shabbat
Shabbat

Outside the rain taps softly
Over smudged glass.

The space smells of sleepiness
Like a praying moon.

Lying back on the loveseat
We enter Walden Pond

Where ego becomes
A phantom belly...

On Love and Sleeo
ON LOVE & SLEEP
I wake up
From a
Nebulous
Nightmare
Where flame
Singes my hair.
Getting up
I am soothed
By the halogen
Of a full moon.
I slide
Back to bed
Falling deeply
Asleep,
And waking up
Again
I notice
A...

Night and Morning
NIGHT & MORNING

You sleep
In the next room
As you are
Restless, sore,
Not wanting
To keep
Me awake

Yet, we
Are
Sewn together
Like incubated
Hearts.

In the morning
I, half asleep,
Feel you
Breeze by me
And I get...

Rosary
ROSARY

I chant a prayer –
The light goes on
A wheel turns
And the world oscillates
Without beginning nor end
At least
By human laws

I chant a prayer again
The world spins...

lying on the pillowy bed
i count my breath

running from random thoughts

universe is transient

Faith and Writing
When young
I had
Little faith –

My beliefs
Were like
Burnt toys
Picked out
From ashes –

Or like
A damp light
And sad
Grass.

In college
I began
To write
Poetry
And with
Fingers
Of wisdom
I explored
What I
Professed

And my
Soul
Felt
Like a
Paint truck
Spilled
In...

dear God
dear God:

my self-absorption
leaves me

limp as rain.
my thoughts are lonely –

like a bathtub
full of ice

but your love
diminishes introspection

and is more
real than earth.

Your grace
dances into my heart

in...

Contemplative Prayer
CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER

Sin
Like rain
Drumming

Causes me
To feel
Prayful

So, with
Veneration
And dragon
Fierceness

I spiritually
Fly
Inside,

Through the
Vastness
Of the galaxy,

Leaving behind
A crowd
Of sorrows

And stars
Begin to
Burn

Beginning
To feel
Dawn dew
Air,

Remembering
Harmless
Paper napkin
Ghosts.

I look
At my
Red heart
Pulse

Encountering
A fountain
Of Jesus’ blood.

I...

Consuming Fire
Consuming Fire

There’s just something greater,
there has to be.
Something inside of me 
longs for something more.
It’s inexplicable;
this hunger, this thirst.
More than anything, I want it.

The emptiness...
