  • The Heart Shaped Ring

    The heart ring came from

    A shop in New Mexico
    where A Christian
    Radio Station was blaring

    midrshim I had never heard!

    It was about Moses entering the Promised Land three days after he died. "You're Jewish?

    So, you hate Palestinians. Don’t you hate them?”

    To the shopkeeper in New Mexico,

    I just said no.

     

    Not at all.

     

    but I bought the ring although it was too big saying, "You know how when it's warm, your hands grow?"

    Good Morning! Good morning!

    It's what we're calling global warming.

    Wake up to the coming cosmic day

    or we'll end up dying for a past 

    that wasn't working anyway.

     

    We've all been dreaming

    and the cocks have certainly been sreaming

    and the clocks have ticked us

    into a life long coffee break,

     

    and the coffee has tricked us

    into thinking we're awake.

    Either we are woken up by the alarm clock or by each other.

    Let lovingkindness roll off your sleeve.

    There is no need to be humble when god is as it is. Even as big as I could be, as grand and powerful, no matter what, there is more. I am ornamental. I am a ping pong ball.

    I have a wall too, you know, that doesn't want to be permeated, through to whom life seems too much,

    I have to go home and mend like a cat licking its... More.

    How to love life?

    to give it love?
    pour onto it and see what grows

    what if i loved you, Life?

    (without life, I cannot know love….)
    love is the little juice
    life is the little fruit.
    and I am a little bit of surrender and finally saying yes, it is worth it, without knowing that life spent all this time convincing me in the back around way,

    yes, it is worth it to let the heart be touched by everything.

    Falling in love again. Maybe I have been scared to. Maybe I am ready to take it on. This time, lovingly.

  • Your Love

    Your love could fly, could be grounded

    As if they were different.

    Your love could ask questions

    Be in the stillness of the deepest silence

    Your love could pop up and make this world greener

    And more full. Your love could sit back, receive

    Revere women and men and children and worldliness

    Could tend the truth of Our divinity.
