the lying sleeps tonight

               (a celebratory haiku)

 Blue skies overhead

Even in the darkest night 

Nothing but blue skies

practice means making one’s way through

 An old man is one

Knowing death walks slow and close

Foggy morning trees

la nuit, porcupine

 The bright flashing lights

The single shot at roadside

Rainy night Friday

remembrance day, veteran’s day

 Thank you!

if you want to go where no one has gone

 The not divided

Individual is one

With no two, just this

still within/upon us

There’s something about the “O”. Whether it is seen as the letter “O” — round, whole, exclamatory, implorative — or as the number “0” (zero) — emptiness, nothingness, adding nothing, taking nothing away — there is a full theology of God for us to consider.

Deus, in adiutórium meum inténde.

 Dómine, ad adiuvándum me festína.

O God, come to our aid.

 O Lord, make haste to help us.

In an age of fantasy superheroes, God is not that.

I don’t know what God is. So, let’s start there. Or, rather, let’s start here.

Perhaps God is “what-is here.” 



For a Thursday morning, it’s enough for now. 

“Now”, which is, it is said, the only consistent and constant reality/time.




Outside my window, night is still upon us.

Still within us.

until there’s enough information, or, a drop of wisdom

 I’m tired of the perseverating 

explanations of the elections.

I have no conclusions.— hence,

Creativity turns and bows

votes count

Politics is messy.

At times it’s hard to locate anything on your desk

It’s not a problem.

What is lost is only lost.

Find out what matters.

or italiano bagel with veggie cream cheese

Scripture Reading! Isaiah 55:1

Oh, come to the water all you who are thirsty;

though you have no money, come!

Buy corn without money, and eat,

and, at no cost, wine and milk.

election day

 Choose well! 

Heaven is kindness and loving concern.

Hell is divisive animosity and small minded cruelty.

Choose well…stay out of hell!

I don’t think that insincere mistruthing has a future.

Truth and sincere leadership does.

This Election Day must begin an authentic future.

Else, I’d prefer not to imagine
