Met

 Swimming 

In a sea

Of tulle

Ribbons

And bows

On the 

Steps 

Off to the Met

Eating canapés 

And admiring

Monets and Manets

In heaven 

Dreaming

Of the city

That never

Sleeps

tears

 God 

wipe 

these tears

of pain

of anger

sadness

and disdain

We humans

have a compassion

deficit

and it shows

off to listen

to Brahms

and get

lost in 

a book

holy dissatisfaction

 Regine

i keep

telling myself

you can't change

the world

only your opinion

we fail ourselves

when the witness

i proclaim

is nowhere

to be found

within me

Christ followers

if we are to 

Proselytize

We must

first examine

how much

needs pruning

first

I'm grateful

God still

does miracles

because

as much

division

as i see now

we need

holy dissatisfaction

in every soul

right now

rest

 My soul

needs respite

like an ocean

waves kissing

my toes

Scooping up sand

God is in

the granules

of my hurt

lost expectation

Trying not

to resent

what I 

can't control

God

 Man may

fail me

but I 

will

Praise

You

Carmen

 Dressing up

in pink sequins

With Bizet's

Carmen's suite

to brighten 

my mood

on this 

Rainy day

pond life

 down by 

the pond

leaves rustling

trees swaying

fish swimming

I'm rowing

and the

only thing

I feel

is unending

love

for 

blessings

i don't 

often

appreciate

a little Pollyanna

but who cares

spring in

my step

because

of joy

in my

bones
