psalms older than creation
rising from the pond

Bits of This and That

This week’s words: infinite, hit, invisible, emits, rhythm, impulse, distance, kneel, creation, whisperings, fists, precise

 


 
~~ 1 ~~
Singers and dancers
shaking their timbrels and hips—
holy the rhythm!
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
A frank confession:
I peer into the distance,
but I see nothing.
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
Where the faithful kneel,
a golden light is shining—
galaxies draw near.
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
A brown paper bag
clutched in a child’s hand can hold
all of creation.
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
Cattails speak in tongues
wisdom taught them long ago—
reedy whisperings.
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
From around the world,
gather stones the size of fists—
change them into bread.
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
infinite wisdom
in recounting bedtime tales—
patience with darkness
 
~~ 8 ~~
 
invisible hand
stirring up the Milky Way
leftovers tonight
