Pause

Consider each second, each moment, each day
Feel all the molecules that are slipping away
Breathe in every droplet of oxygen in the air
Listen intently to everything everywhere...

Pause for a moment, for  a second; for an hour
Let in every element every mineral every flower
Close down every impediment every barrier,,every noise
Let in without resistance all the Heavenly envoys

See now these challenges; these missions; this plan
Laid out before you in sky sea and land
Whispering with reverence, the wishes of  One
We hear it in everything how everything's begun..

And I hear them...

Knocking on the door of my ever awakening heart
Words and rhymes are readying to get their  start
Making her adjustments to the molecules and  to the air
Mother earth is singing out to everyone everywhere

And I hear them all the words I'm supposed to say
Lining up in the most magnificent and organized way
Whispering to me as they sing to me with loveliness
Everything around me is crying out: God is in this everythingness

Before I can even start my morning rituals and routine
I hear the buzzing of the words that are subtle and  serene
They dance and dance and lift me up in ponderings deep inside
Until I can type them up and share the meanings that they hide

And I hear them all the words I'm supposed to say
Lining up in the most magnificent and organized way
Whispering to me as they sing to me with loveliness
Everything around me is crying out: God is in this everythingness

Too often we are too busy to stop and hear  the whispering
Echoing through the trees and birds and everything
Humming out the words for us to hear and join along
Mother earth is giving us hope and love and endless song

And I hear them all the words I'm supposed to say
Lining up in the most magnificent and organized way
Whispering to me as they sing to me with loveliness
Everything around me is crying out: God is in this everythingness

Who are you ???

Are you fake or are you real
Can you tell me how you feel
Are you acting .. are you you
Tell me tell me what is true

Are you selfish full of pride
Are you generous with your time
Are you Christian.. are you not
Does it matter what you've got

Are you a follower..afraid to walk
Apart from those with foolish talk
Choosing goodness ...choosing right
Can you choose these: be the light?

What's your anthem what's your song
Can you sing ..without singing  along
Are you liberated are you free
Tell me truly..who you be

Asthmatic Moment

The air seems thick..it's hard to breathe
My lungs inflate but haven't relief
Labored and challenged they are so sore
I inhale and exhale and long for.. more..

The temperature's .. ungodly: it's hot inside
The fans they run and create a tide
Of air-lets that enter through an open vent
But this mugginess is awful ..it won't relent

Like armies all mounting to bring me down
Hundreds of molecules are jumping around
Carrying their humidity and carrying their heat
The outcome seems obvious but won't defeat

For like moments,  so many;  so vast; so wide..
God's Heavenly angels are with me inside
Breathing in newness and breathing in air
God is my Helper and Giving me care

Who'll stop this storm

Tears fall from my eyes
As I look to the skies..
Whirlwinds galore
Shake up the earth's floor

Flooding and rain
Destruction and pain
Ride on through the day:
Dorian's making his way

Behind us already
Our sister,  unsteady
Is struggling to stand
Bahamas..sweet land

United in prayer
People everywhere
Petition and plead
Oh God intercede...

See how he keeps going?
Dorian keeps throwing:
The oceans, the breeze;
The houses and trees.,.

Enough is enough
Stop doing this stuff
Go away.... go away
Leave us alone.. we pray

A hurricane keeps crawling

Tragedy and destruction are airing before our eyes
A hurricane keeps crawling and darkening all our skies
Powerfully uprooting and blowing it all  away
Dorian, we see you ..and are hoping you will not stay

The Bahamas,  all shattered,  still have you all around.
You batter and bash them and bellow with great sound
You're upsetting and heartless and leave a terrible mark:
Oh Dorian, we beg you, please don't leave us in the dark

The headlines are many and the weatherman can only guess
The path you are undertaking ..it's like a game of chess
You break through every barrier and catch us unaware
We cannot overcome you, you're too much for us to bear..

We plead now, with the Heavens, with the God who made us all:
Please stop it ..this monster..that continues to churn and crawl
We've had it; it's too much: we don't know where to turn
Oh God, of all created; what lessons, must we learn
