instructions. That is my gift to you, Grandson. Happy Birthday.” 6.12.1944

A Part of Everything

012

Remember those times in your life when you knew there was more. You were a part of everything, with no beginning and no end. Maybe you were in the park one lazy afternoon. And, as you lay there stretched out on the grass a butterfly came along and landed on a wrinkle in your jeans and at that precise moment you realized that butterfly had a secret you knew once, long, long ago. La, la, la, la , la, la, la, la, la, la……..”
The song: I Had A Dream.
The play: Living Love and Loving Life.
By Lee Broom. 1981.

 

When Love is Conditional is it Love?

Do you say “Attaboy” or “Wow”?

Do you say “good job” of “Thank you”?

Do you give a pat on the shoulder when someone gives you a hug?

Do you say “No problem” or “Thank you”, as a way of accepting a compliment?

Do you fold your arms when people talk about feelings?
There is always an answer to why we say that, do that, think that. Those answers are conditions. When Love is conditional it is not Love. So what is it?

 

Think about this. How do you feel when you are helping someone?

What do you call that feeling you get when you calm a child in pain?

Where did that feeling come from?

If everything we do is conditional and the feelings that we have at certain times seem to be Love, then where does that Love reside?

When we discover ourselve astir in a compelling stream of consciousness that results in a poem, a painting or an orgasm, are these not gifts?

From whence did they originate?

What do you think?

What do you believe?

Space dust?

The Choir of Meadowlark Hill

2 21 2013 The Tree

 

It began with a glimmer, a sliver of light.

In a matter of minutes the glow was right.

And the Meadowlark sang its song.

 

Another Lark………… another, again.

A feathery chorus was now on hand

As The Boy mimicked their song .

More Meadowlarks sang along.

And The Boy became a man.

 

The Year was not New. It was warm,

There was dew as the day took form

Like a voice from Heaven

The boy of eleven,

Joined the choir of Meadowlark Hill.

 

This morning was more than  a  day in the life,

This newborn man

Met the day now rife

With the pleasance of Trill

On The Hill of The Larks.

On The Hill of The Man.

A  humble young Man

Said Thank You.

 

Thank You  he said again.

Again and again and again.
