WHAT AM I LOOKING FOR IN THE ATTIC?

LOOKING DOWN THROUGH A CRACK IN THE WOODEN FLOORBOARD, I SMILE AS I SEE MY ‘HONEY’ WATCHING TV.  HE ASKS, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING UP THERE?”

I MUSE, “0, JUST DE-CLUTTERING MY MIND.

SUDDENLY, MAGICALLY, I RECOGNIZE HIM BY HIS AZURE BLUE EYES AND SILVERY CURLY HAIR.

YOUR BROAD, HAPPY SMILE IS FOREVER ETCHED IN MY PSYCHE.

MY JOY IS SO FIXATED ON YOU – MY PAPA – I JUMP OUT OF BED AND MY DREAM OF YOU EVAPORATES!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVING VISIT, ONCE AGAIN.

your grateful daughter, scribe for love

FREE VERSE

Inspired by Thomas Merton’s ‘Thoughts in Solitude’

O BURNING DESERT SAND

AKIN TO FROTHY SEAS AND SNOWY MOUNTAINS

NOTHING THERE FOR MAN TO CONQUER – BUT HIMSELF

SUCH WILDERNESS TO BATTLE AGAINST SOLITUDE

DESOLATION TO PURIFY MAN’S HEART

AND IF ACCOMPLISHED

MAN’S EYES WILL SEE THE FACE OF GOD

AND LIVE

RESTLESSNESS

Art by Yayoi Kusama

FREE VERSE

WHEN I CANNOT FALL ASLEEP

IN SEARCH FOR THE ETERNAL

AND MY BED IS TOO COMFORTABLE

MY HEART ACHES FOR THOSE

TORN UNDER THE RUBBLE OF EARTHQUAKES

FOR THOSE WHOSE HOUSES ARE OBLITERATED BY HURRICANES

A WRETCHED PEOPLE, HOW CAN WE PRESERVE OUR SOULS

FROM THE ENTANGLEMENTS OF SUCH ADVERSITIES?

MY ONLY RECOURSE – SCURRY FOR THE ALPHA AND OMEGA

THE SAVING LIGHT OF GOD

HAVING SAID THAT – MAY I REST MY SOUL IN SWEET SLEEP

TOMORROW WILL BE A NEW DAWNING!

your scribe for love
