Expect change.

Something to bask in,


or even throw away.

I'm moving

like clouds....alive in your eyes.

Call to Service:

The Moon,
hanging like

a clean, bright, fingernail
in the sky

Calls me to work

Just a little bit


than yesterday.

A fun Exercise (A parody of John Milton's "On His Blindness"):

*On His Blindness*

When I consider the bulb burnt out I cannot see it.
Ev'ry night is a struggle in the room with a view
And my only talent is the nakedness I hide--
Scorning me, in it's youthfulness unseen:
An Unspent coil, a snake, to serve my Maker,
far from the Garden wall...There's no accounting
for it...

...Lest, he return, chilled.

Why is God a day laborer,
and all Darkness on Sunday?
I fondly ask..no light, no incandescent bulb
Is Bright!

It's okay, I'll pay the bill,
on the 'morrow.
He'd made me strong to Work

And, if I can find my Best Clothes
In The Darkness,
I shall stand and serve forever
in a candle-lit restaurant.

Thank you, for stopping by.
