Hide me from me
Reflections in the mirror
I don’t want to see.
A ghostly corridor
Before the astral me
Reaches in darkness.
Beyond this limbo,
An expanse of lightness.
When shall I go
To that heavenly address?
“The Sun Dials”
An intergalactic collect call
Though operators can’t direct
The connection is clear
About the truth of what’s constant
A love. A a vow. A hope.

“Weather the Weather”
Overcast skies and overcast mind
Over and under, through clouds of all kinds
Whether to weather the weather or whether
To blow the man down or keep it together
The North Star you’ll stay, twinkling and bright
These storms I can brave with your light every night

“The Thought of it All”
Remembering a moment and savoring the thought
A sweet, sublime melody cornered and caught
Finely construed over the distance time passes
The bluest of skies and the greenest of grasses
This counterpoint nuanced and cadences written
Oh, polished recall! Oh, memory smitten!

Zoned out on a Monday morning
While the college station drones on,
A deep grumbling from hastily
Consumed buttered toast and coffee
Bubbles to the surface—a burp.
Passionless bleats from zombiefied
Speed demons wake me from my trance.
Where am I? How did I get here?
But then the engine’s lullaby
Returns me to my hypnosis.
One among the staggering horde
I traverse the city daily,
Sighing sad, cacophonous groans
Until finally the last vestige
Of the fortieth hour vanishes.

“Prayer for Kitty”
Pretty kitty, nice kitty
Wherever you go
Whoever you’ll meet
God will guide always
Your pink padded feet
All the kitty naps
All the balls of yarn
You’re God’s welcome guest
At home on His lap
Content, purring, blessed
