11/30/2016, Two Impressions While Walking

Posted on: December 1, 2016

49.
A house is just a fancy nest
That is really that
A place to cook your food
A place to hang your hat

But what we do inside the walls
Creates reality
So make it good, for a better world
Outside, for you and me

11/30/2016
Marching with worries in the rain
Even as my brain plays
Forever Young on a continuous loop

The benedictions are a useful and good

And Christmas is coming
Here and there houses sprout twinkly decorations
Inside the coffee shop, Vince Guaraldi’s piano jubilantly whirls

Discombobulated by the dueling of rumination and reveling
I sit to catch up on the news
A friend’s eulogy for her father
Cleans up the mess in my head
She writes, “I hope you will know him through me. I will strive to be a shining – albeit imperfect – example of the love that he embodied.”

As time is like ether
I’m out again in the rain
Caffeinated and with marching orders
Strive and shine
Pay love forward
So generously given me
To others
