"Good Morning, World!"

Category: spirituality

Extended Dawn

Eye have seen The Sun

rise through the Eye of a cloud

edged in Silver-Gold

 

A Place for Marriage

There is a place for Marriage

in amongst the confessions

of many — The Vow

and if You break it

You’re in trouble.

 

My First Vow was “until Death”

and The Death was My Mother’s —

My Second

I don’t remember voicing

and the wedding itself

was an abomination.

 

Morning Realization

The Scraggly Apple

is Dead Butt Eye am Alive

to know It fully

And Eye Have Maria

How Do You Get To Be Anything

Without Being A Wanna-be?

NOTE:  Eye am already

everything I have ever

wanted to Be —

except a helicopter pilot —

not YET

LIFE 2

We Come From The Light

Of The Star Called Sun & Moon

Why?  We Must Know Why

Message for Women & Girls:

Don’t have sex

if you are fertile

and do not want to get pregnant —

If you do get pregnant

and you are afraid to have The Child

think of Him or Her

as Your Own Creation

Your Own Empowerment:

The Bond of Mother and Child

is Sacred

What’s The Latest?

My Divorcing Husband

has allowed Me to become

The Social Outcast

Who walks My expansive beach alone

Who sleeps with

The Virginal Banana

Who reads Her Verse

dressed like a vamp

while He refuses to ask

“How did it go?”

He Didn’t Hear Me

In My Favourite Restaurant

Eye overheard The Waiter

Talking to The Cook:

“How can You have time

for God and Your Wife?”

Eye called out from My Booth:

“What if God and Your Wife

are One and The Same?”

April 23rd 2018

I grew up

on the edge of existence

in a place called

The Drowned Forrest

where I stood between

ancient mysteries of passion

and future enlightenment of life

without entanglements

to turn

to behold My House —

My Funny-looking House —

staring down at me

from above the beach

where I walked along the silver sea

Sunday Morning

Eye can have My Church

here, hear upon The Beach

I can walk, wake with The Birds

in the social structure of solitude

in the company of Life

Eye can shine with The New Sun
