Holding It Together

It won’t be a snap,

but in moments of high tension

we could try zipping our lips

without buttoning our hearts.

Open Question

Standing before that

barely open door,

 I realize I too

am not completely closed

or fully open.

Should I view this as an oversight

or as an invitation?

Quantum Shift

She felt like a small particle

in his vast universe

until he turned and smiled.

A boy is Truth with dirt on its face,

Boys are found everywhere – on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on,
swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls
hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and
Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut
on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future
with a frog in its pocket.

What’s This You’re Telling Me?

I may say they started it

and maybe they did,

but after that

what I do with it

is completely up to me?

I have to notice

how my body feels?

what emotions come?

what thoughts arise?

And –

 even in the heat of things

I have to remember

what matters most to me?

And – 

I have to do these things

repeatedly?

What are you selling here, my Guru friend?

Maturity?

Why should I buy it

when blame’s so available

and always quite cheap?
