Broom
I passed a store that just sold brooms
On Granville Isle, B.C.
Two sisters weave them in Vancouver
For their company.

I marveled at the many styles
In varied shapes and sizes
That many folk no longer use
As home life modernizes.

I rarely use a broom myself

Whom Do We Trust
Written: by Miracle Man

When it appears that life is just about to unravel.

Unseen
Unseen 


Beauty is what you can’t see.
It’s even beyond the God.

The whole universe is just
Its preface and spot of its face.

Once you see it, there’s nothing to see.
And there’s even no need to see.

There’s nothing that can out-leap 
The beauty.

Chapter 1: Deneen's Failed Liberalism (Revised Version)

Developing progressivism
within liberalism
further iterates pervasive presentism
of win/win
past through future multiculturalism,

A healing timelessness,
progressivism grounds deep attachment
toward our most sensory-nutritional past,

Particularly radically cooperative customs
and multiculturally bilateral geocentric traditions.

While widely understood to be future-oriented,
climate healthy progress rests...Read More

She stretched her arms across your abyss,
so that she could covertly open your door.
She cried as she peeked into your eyes,

In every prayer, God's honour is at stake
His answer is intertwined in glorifying...Read More
