A Firm Foundation

DSC_0070
Not much remains of an old stone house near the shores of Willow Lake, Prescott, Arizona.
 
 

Around the stone foundation, weeds and grasses grow.
Somewhere in the distance, I hear a mocking crow:
“You thought your house would stand here for all eternity,
But it has turned to rubble, as you can clearly see.”
 
I turn from the foundation in sorrow and in grief;
The crow and its bleak message have brought me no relief.
I seek a weeping willow, and there I make my bed,
And let the willow’s tresses cool my fevered head.
 
Revived, refreshed, and ready, I plan another house
A place to welcome strangers, and even the stray mouse.
Upon a firm foundation, I’ll build my house anew;
It will be a resting place for pilgrims just like you;
 
A place where song and laughter bind humans each to each,
In bonds that can’t be broken by hurtful, hate-filled speech.
And when the journey’s over, and day has turned to night,
My house on its foundation will still be shining bright.

Blue Monday & Ruby Tuesday Too: Have Some Popcorn

When times are tough and my sadness grows
Sharper than thorns on a tangled rose,
And tears flow freely into my tea,
I look for something to comfort me.
 
A glimpse, perhaps, of a far-off place
(Call it heaven, or maybe it’s grace)
That gives me hope for living a life
Free of all pain, and free of all strife.
 
But try as I might, I just can’t find
Anything peaceful to ease my mind.
With pleasures lacking, my life’s a mess;
I need some solace, and nothing less.
 
Yet years of practice have taught me this:
There is a way from sorrow to bliss.
When all else fails to comfort me,
Popping some corn is the remedy!
