Walking, in faith
with you, as you
pour blessing
upon blessing.
Images once
seen, brought
into being-
daily.

My barren, dry
soul, a distant
memory.

Yet, with
each blessing.
Each impossible
possibility
emerging,
I am not,
surprised.

You tell me,
I am faithful,
I am loyal.
You are,
well pleased.
This, is
your desire.

However,
I just can’t
help,
feeling
guilty.

Growning

fields, freshly
plowed, seedlings
teeming, sunlight
streaming, storms
sweeping, nurturing-
shamrock shoot,
sprouting, aching
to touch,
the
sun.

One bad day,
after another-
One more, to
ease the pain.
Just, one more.

Curled, wrapped,
in the News, of
the day.
Soaked,
shivering-
sorting it
out.

Lens lie, on
Silver screens.
Opening night,
taking a bite-
I try, not
to gag.

Ocean waves,
override, this
yammering,
spewing, on
and on,
lips moving,
washing,
over me.

Zappity zap,
lightning cage,
insects burn.

Mayday! Mayday!

Breaking the glass,
in case, of emergency.
Checklist:
Dictionary, got it.
Thesaurus, thank God!
Speling? speling?!
Spelling book, whew.

Remington, a savior,
dark times,
pen and paper, familiar
companions.

The Internet, is gone.
Hoping, it’s just us.
Holding out.
Fifteen, grueling
minutes. Hoping
someday,
someone,
will find,
this message,
in this
bottle.
