A Christmas Sonnet

Those bright Christmas Lights can't light up the sky
By Darkness controlled black night of the soul
No big Christmas Gifts could be the reply
To the question sole of our own heart's hole
No pleasant moment of christmassy scent
With cinnamon smell makes everything well
All the money spent on food in Advent
Can't disguise Night's Hell nor break the Dark Spell
The Holiday cheer won't last for the year
No old tradition or celebration
Can with music mere mute all of our fears
But first Christmas Night transformed creation:
Bristling with morning, night so full of dawn
Joy for the mourning bringing hope for us all

Schrei ich
Den Baum an
Aber Bäume
Sprechen nicht
Sie sind
Wie ich
Und stehen
Stumm dort
Am selben Ort

Life on the Hyphen

Please mind the gap!
They yelled at the equilibrist
as he balanced between

Walk the line like
Johnny Cash,
high up way above
the solid ground.

They found it exciting.
And what does it all mean?
How can something be
defined by it's failure
to be neither one
nor the other?

Everybody was clapping
by now.
Bye now, he waived.
But maybe there is a continuum
of being and meaning
on the brink of something new?

A link, bridge-like from the past.
Oh! Did you see that?
I can't believe
You've missed it.

Prayer For Renewal

Jump-start my heart
Refresh my flesh
Beckon my bones
Stir up my soul
Move in my mind
