Lofty Cups

How many tacos

Does it take to make a ton?

Loud carriages help lofty cups

Surround untold clocks.

Cooking is kooky when albums

Cooperate around white beaches.

Looking into burping houses,

I circumnavigate egghead books.

A Leisurely Day

Jump into a pile of leaves.

Ride your bike down a hill.

Run a marathon or two.

Capture her smile in a Kodak moment.

Slide underneath the covers

In a nice, warm bed,

On a crisp, cool night.

Sleep well.

A Miracle

Gliding along the currents of air,

I’m lifted by the light that shines on me.

Love permeates my being,

Like a spear piercing my side.

The nails are hammered through

My ragged wrists. I cry out,

My God, my God, why?

Have you forsaken me?

The dusk descends and they lower

My cross, loosen my body

And carry me to my tomb.

I stand on a mountaintop.

Throw yourself down!

God’s angels will save you.

Turn these stones into bread.

You are hungry. Go ahead.

Freedom! I am set free by God’s hand.

Risen at last and the tombstone

Is rolled away.

Contemplation

Drifting through inner space,

My mind will never win a race.

Can you feel the wind blow

Inside and out, it pushes me

To my destination. The spoon stirs

The tea in the cup.

Sweetened with sugar, I drink right up.

I’m falling asleep, but it’s only 9 a. m.

Look at all the trees beginning to bloom.

Merry Go Round

I’m feeling normal.

I’m feeling blah.

I’m doing nothing.

I’m falling apart.

Nothing changes.

It’s all a merry go round.

We’re getting nowhere.

We’re falling off the edge.

Can you see the danger?

Can you feel the pulsing beat?

Do you feel my heart?

I’m numb down to my feet.

Let us set a course.

We’ve got to go somewhere.

Let us try to make it.

We’ll go from here to there.

Something’s got to give.

We’ve got to accomplish it.

We must start to live.

I know I can do it.

So here we go,

In a merry go round.

Spinning circles.

We’re going nowhere fast.

How long will this last?
