Mother's Temple (event six)

Upon the edges of The Mother’s temple, splashing her soul that's filled with goodness, snuggling with her unblemished love, rotating like honey-joy spun to form laughter, comes a silent prayer; a wish mad-thrown to Heaven.

With all of the hard years fogging the windows, mothers look past the broken dish, the noise, her child’s flaws are made of angel dust that she'll breathe away. Prayers aren’t answered, they’re performed, said Mother.

Happy Birthday, Mama...

The Wind and the Chill (five)

(The Beginning of the Wind 4 by
Jana Sharecky)

The wind cuts through with a chill. I am but a man, one man, I’ve no more than any other. What is it that I may give that others cannot? Might this wind be for me? Might it be telling me to lift my feet, act upon the truths that I believe, leaving room for flowers and thorns?

Then the voice said, No one can vanquish god…

The Ground Stood Sacred (four)

The sky was clear, the stars glistened with rhythm, the ground stood sacred, openmouthed with sorrow like the gaping of a self-inflicted bereavement, a cheerless revelry meant to imprison truth’s throbbing, a delay of my own failure.

The stars then spoke to me, seek goodness in all things.Resist all suffering. Cleave away all noise that nests within prejudice. Hoist no flag, nothing that separates you from Love's kinship.

The wind tossed its breathing over the yard, conjure no name, face, or verse for the creator. Place no demands upon others. Walk in kindness. Love.

Revelation (three)

There will be no revelations of the failure to love.

Hatred’s come on solid legs; struts of steel, water and wood, bending the throat to gloom.

Love and goodness breathe next to this world’s gravity.

There will be no revelations…

The Rose (event two)

I must prepare to live for what I believe, for if I'm not willing to live for what I hold as truth then what good am I, save for death?

Whoever accuses humankind of having irreparable misery…
Whoever accuses humankind of unattainable importance...
Whoever accuses humankind of having no purpose…
Whoever accuses humankind of being an orphan…
Whoever accuses humankind of being loveless…
Whoever accuses humankind of being godless…
Whoever accuses humankind of being empty…
Whoever accuses humankind of ownership…
Whoever accuses humankind of being evil…
Whoever accuses humankind of mortality…
had best be prepared to live for what they believe...

If I Am To Love

If I am to love
might it be full-throated and soaring like a songbird?

If I am to love
might it rumble, cough and spit like an old truck clunking its way home to a gated community of metal parts; a gold and silver paradise of rusty gadgets as far as the eye can see?

If I am to love
might it be a clamorous breath come forth to lift the darkened sky and hold the weary worn that they might greet me with a lover’s lips?

If I am to love
might it be a panic, like that of a terrified people, a family who’ve pulled down their shades to shroud their fears as if the world didn't exist there amid the electronic beeps and lights and the grave rumbling heard just outside their front door?

Morning Trip (event one)

Steak knife, orange, half peeled, coffee, smoky morning, moved inside to write, clock read 11:11...

It's gone too far.

Peace cannot breathe air into the waters. Love’s unable to recover from its suicide. Torture and war; their oppression, failing too. Goodness pushes its scent like a petal’s breath in the wind.

The clock reads 11:11?  What’s "too far"? The scent; a reminder of her beauty. Eleven eleven. That’s too near. A mirror for love to hold. I’ll need more time! My reflection, my fortune, full Love. I’ve gone too far. My regret, my sadness, my complicity. Yes. My greed, my lovelessness, my death.  Something is coming.

Haze trippin’ in the morning- something’s going to happen. ...November the eleventh, twenty-eleven, not horrific, but tragic nonetheless...

Too many I.

Perhaps I arrived a minute too early or late. (Perhaps I forgot what came after eleven?)
