Silent Light 

entry picture

Hello silence, my old friend.
It's good to embrace you
once again.

No flashing phones.

No broken dreams.

Just breathing in gratitude,
marinating the moment,
exhaling ego,
connecting to the prophet within.

Listening, learning, loving, 
awakened 
by the naked light you bring.

     God is real and

and destiny. 

Think it through
before you give up 
friendship
for a moment 
in the sun 
on the sinking ship
of fools.

The Bleeding Edge

The razor thin space between 
stimuli and response 
is decision. 

I decided to put a  
romcom relationship
where love never ends
and be, just friends. 

It was a defining decision.

He decided that without 
certain stimuli, there would be 
no response, just an end.

Tempting as it is to give in
to conditioned responses,
I'm riding the razor's edge
into a new frontier...
