The new normal.


Sun rises later, now
lower in the sky
Shards of light cut deeper across fertile land.

Just after High Noon peaks
End of Day squeezes the brightness down
into tight fists of Never Enough.

Yet,

What once delights mellows with old love,
potent and pure in its remains
ripples in satisfaction more subtle and soft,
stepping back from the heart to the gut without regret.

Feeling in the bones a release of grit and sweat,
moving with ease and shine

into a season of slowing down and letting go.

Frank.


You visit me in a dream
writing down things left to do on your yellow pad.
We can take care of it, yes.
You let me hug you
I see the black and blue, feel the lump in my throat
as the dream moves off in a new direction
My last words to you are, “I love you Frank.”
Sometimes surrender is the sweetest love.

Pattern.


“They wondered nonetheless about the curious net of obligations, failings, coincidences, and events that seem to tie everything together, even for those who think they are free … maybe there are laws of obligation which bind us to patterns that we can’t see and to tasks that we don’t perceive.”

-Mark Helprin, Winter’s Tale

Let it be.


“It’s your job,” my husband cries out, waking me from a good stretch of slumber.

“Are you awake?” I ask.

“No.”

I am, and I don’t fall back to sleep for hours.

Later, when my husband is awake, I ask him about his late night outburst. He tells me about his dream … he is getting ready to host the Beatles at his hotel, and he’s summoned the staff together for a pep talk. He tells them what needs to be done to make the place ready. “It’s your job,” he says …

“That’s funny,” I say. “I woke up this morning singing, ‘Let it be.'”

He nods, and knows how I feel.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
From this, our mantra for today –for many days- is revealed.

And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
