Abraham’s Mountain #2

If we choose to undertake
that spiritual journey toward complete love and union
we will surely be summoned to Abraham’s Mountain,
to that place of nakedness and deep inner willingness
to surrender absolutely all to the unrelenting call
of the Divine Presence within.

in praise of the scab

(A lighthearted take on one of the amazing
“small” manifestations of the Creative Presence
we so take for granted. First posted 6/23/14.)

i celebrate the scab big and small
sacrament accessible to one and all

reminder we are more than machines
equally helpful to beggars and queens

it stays no longer than required
with little fanfare it’s retired

a creation of promise and salubrious dreams
a little miracle built into our genes

so all hail the scab and praise to its maker
in the business of health it’s a mover and shaker

Collecting “Likes”

If I write only
to collect “likes” and “follows”
I may unknowingly dam up
the free flow of those creative waters
meant to be turned into wine
to help the world sing
its stunning, vibrant song.
