The Dancing Birds (14 Apr 2016)
You can only play with the dancing birds
If you agree to play by their playtime terms:
- Make sure your voice is not too loud.
- Make sure your soul is near the ground.
- When you move, move slowly or they may run away and you must wait to play another day.
- When you breathe, breathe gently or they may be afraid to enter into your hazy domain.
I imagine playtime was fun today.
Too bad I scared them again away.
Day Trip to DC (16 Dec 2015)
What do I say? Yes or no?
Should I stay or should I go?
I want to make a memory
But my friends—they cannot join me.
Fulfillment not tedium is the goal
But if I can’t share it then it’s not whole.
Without fellowship, what is the goal
Of a day trip to DC alone?
For nine hours in my car
I will chat with a childhood Friend
We’ll reserve two seats at the bar
And I’ll hear the good news again.
True solitude and tranquility
Can be a heavenly melody—divine remedy.
