For those who now rest and walk on the shores of Everlasting Waters, and those whose spirits are refreshed in the Eternal Architect's Sea of Light.

December 26, 2004; Sleep in heavenly peace--





 

 

HUSH. . .

for the silence is not golden as
the sunrays which no longer beam;

WHISPER. . .

for the age of now is one
where the spirits rest not in the moonlight;

("shhhhhh"). . .

for the seagull now fears nesting on the bony sandbar

TESTIFY. . .

for once again the hand of God in terror has lock'd us palm to palm as ONE

I AM


 

THANKFUL
 
FOR THE WIFE


WHO SAYS IT'S HOT

DOGS TONIGHT,


BECAUSE SHE IS HOME

WITH ME,


AND NOT OUT WITH

SOMEONE ELSE. 
 


FOR THE HUSBAND


WHO IS ON THE SOFA


BEING A COUCH

POTATO,


BECAUSE HE IS HOME

WITH ME  AND NOT OUT AT THE

BARS.



FOR THE TEENAGER


WHO IS

COMPLAINING ABOUT

DOING DISHES


BECAUSE THAT

MEANS SHE IS AT

HOME,  NOT ON THE

 STREETS.



FOR THE TAXES


THAT I PAY


BECAUSE IT MEANS

THAT  

I AM EMPLOYED.



FOR THE MESS


TO CLEAN AFTER A

PARTY  BECAUSE IT

MEANS 

THAT I HAVE BEEN

 SURROUNDED

BY FRIENDS.



FOR THE CLOTHES


THAT FIT A LITTLE


 

TOO SNUG


BECAUSE IT MEANS


I HAVE ENOUGH TO

EAT.



FOR MY SHADOW


THAT WATCHES ME

WORK  BECAUSE IT

MEANS


I AM OUT IN THE

SUNSHINE. 
 


FOR A LAWN


THAT NEEDS

MOWING,


WINDOWS THAT

NEED CLEANING,


AND GUTTERS THAT

NEED FIXING


BECAUSE IT MEANS I

HAVE A HOME. 
 


FOR ALL THE

COMPLAINING


I HEAR ABOUT THE

GOVERNMENT


BECAUSE IT MEANS

THAT  WE HAVE

FREEDOM OF SPEECH.


FOR THE PARKING

SPOT


I FIND AT THE FAR

END OF THE PARKING

LOT 

BECAUSE IT MEANS I

AM CAPABLE OF

WALKING


AND THAT I HAVE

BEEN


BLESSED WITH

TRANSPORTATION.



FOR MY HUGE

HEATING BILL


BECAUSE IT MEANS


I AM WARM.



FOR THE LADY


BEHIND ME IN

CHURCH


THAT SINGS OFF KEY


BECAUSE IT MEANS


THAT I CAN HEAR.



FOR THE PILE


OF LAUNDRY AND

IRONING


BECAUSE IT MEANS


I HAVE CLOTHES TO

WEAR.



FOR WEARINESS


AND ACHING

MUSCLES


AT THE END OF THE

DAY


BECAUSE IT MEANS


I HAVE BEEN


CAPABLE OF WORKING

HARD.



FOR THE ALARM


THAT GOES OFF


IN THE EARLY

MORNING HOURS


BECAUSE IT MEANS

THAT I AM ALIVE.



AND FINALLY.


FOR TOO MUCH E-

MAIL


BECAUSE IT MEANS I

HAVE  FRIENDS WHO

ARE THINKING OF ME.

SEND THIS POEM AND


MESSAGE TO

SOMEONE YOU CARE

ABOUT.



 

. . .Because, I just did :-)
