More

I want something more… the thought persists. I don’t want to settle for anything less. And in doing so, I must learn to forget. Erase, bless away the unimportant thoughts that clog my head…those gray clouds that deter me from thinking clearly, from seeking some form of love in this universe that is here for us to snatch and contemplate. For how many more ways can we encounter, spread love in this world…it burgeons from a worthwhile handshake, a weighty embrace… from the act of a meal that begins with a simple cup of coffee. No doubt, forthcoming love. I want something more, the thought repeats. Just a cup of coffee then, maybe two.

Bless the old year away and move into the new!

where it leads me
apart from where you are
inside this cylinder
tucked inside
where I feel all your power
I see all the hours
and time and space
are no longer apart
but at the heart–
you and I
miles and miles
’til we learn to understand
there is much more
to comprehend than merely
you and I (there is)
the mundane, the day to day–
more than time would allow
and yet even as these bells summon
we are unstirred, (unmoved)
for we are no more than our flesh
but our minds to rise
above, beyond
you and I
toward His enterprise
