A Verb Is An Action Word

There is a verb…”is”—to be—for example:                                                                                 It  is, I am, we are.

Learning how to read is like                                                                                                    Learning how to be.

"I am" has no value in our world until we add an adjective                              She Is…Good/Bad…rich/poor…Happy/Sad.

I learn how to read myself when other people teach me my adjectives.

                             But Really?  I just am.

                                    I really am.

Listening to the Noise

What are they saying?

                                                  I can’t hear the single voice amid the chaos,

                                                                              I can’t hear the multitudes

                                      when the roar of rage crashes through humanity.

               —We are loathe to admit to our shared human vulnerability—

in a world without love.

Your head is intact
But your thoughts
Need you to roar

Where is your voice?

FORGETTING

Mother, thank you for being

             at the birthday party today.

Great-grandchildren’s birthdays are special, and there you were. 

I am amazed at how long it has been since I have last seen you.

So long in fact that I almost remembered who I am in your presence.

               No problem with conflicting emotions

               No problem loving my grandchildren without guilt.

We all had a happy birthday party, and it was all about

love and how many years it takes to find the truth of it,

                the trust of it,

                                           Love

Bluster

I heard winter knocking at my door this morning. Go away, I can’t answer the door, I am taking a very hot shower.

                        Blessings are heaped upon me

                        They keep me warm in the cold shadows of dawn.
