I Believe In Miracles

in General,Monthly Post,Poetry

I don’t believe in evolution
or creationism
or other isms on how we came to be
even the next new theory is predictably
one more among many plausible stories
trying to tame the inexplicable.

To Live

I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. ~ Jack London

All Aspects Of Our Lives

Each morning
I reach for the tall
lilac mug you gave me
on your last visit –
the one with designs so true
that hummingbirds
mistake its flowers for
asters

Twins

in Great Things To Share

In a mother’s womb were two babies.

One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”

The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”

“Nonsense” said the first. “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”

The second said, “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have other senses that we can’t understand now.”

The first replied, “That is absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. But the umbilical cord is so short. Life after delivery is to be logically excluded.”

The second insisted, “Well, I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need this physical cord anymore.”

The first replied, “Nonsense. And moreover if there is life, then why has no one has ever come back from there? Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there is nothing but darkness and silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.”

“Well, I don’t know,” said the second, “but certainly we will meet Mother and she will take care of us.”

The first replied “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?”

The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not and could not exist.”

Said the first: “Well, I don’t see Her, so it is only logical that She doesn’t exist.”

To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive Her presence and you can hear Her loving voice calling down from above.”

Lilies And -Laddin-s Lamp

in General,Guest Writers,Monthly Post

They are the ancestors of all the lovely hybrids that we enjoy in our gardens today, those wild lilies that grow freely in different parts of the world. They have different faces, different names in other places, but I was the lucky one. The beautiful Turk’s Cap Lily grew wild and wonderful in the Southern Appalachian mountains of Southeast Kentucky where I grew up.

Twice Rescued

Among the rows and rows for sale
you drew my attention
dozens of flowered stems bursting upward
green leaves hastening to match them in number,
effusive blooms, all in pink.
