January 1985

 

A Year and a Week

(November remembered)

 

after the song

boredom strikes out

and I fall

to its temptations

not minding the sermon

I stare out the window

and thank God for the sky

that is all I see

thin tendrils of distant cloud

foretelling sunsets richness

and beauty

skylarking birds, alive and free

soaring in rapturous flight

exuberant and alive!

 

and my mind flies away

going crazy with joy

over all Gods given me

the friends that share my life

my greatest reason to live

the songs

the tales

the tears and smiles

 

“Amen”

he says

and I return

aware of you

beside me

one more reason

for that crazy smile on my face

one more reason

for thanks
