Another day another dollar.

I came home worn and beat down from another day another dollar
spent surfing stations trying to escape the heart rend of a brave man in
orange
breathing his last
Another day another dollar spent putting hands on cancer and aging and healing and dying
Another evening wanting only to put my feet up but there
he
is
my wide-eyed son too old to waste a single moment soothing my own ache when he says
Look, mama
So I do
And our toes curl against the warm wet stone of the patio where we stand watching the storm clouds push to the east as the fire of another day-end ignites the sky
Pink then purple then last of all
orange
And there ain’t no dollar I wouldn’t pay to make sure I don’t miss
me
my boy
and the sunset.

The heavens declare
The glory of God
And all of the world
Will join the praise
His wonders proclaim

The oceans and skies
Lift up their voice
And all all He has made
Will rise to bless
The King of all kings.

Eternity’s King

Is coming again
Though all of the earth
Will fade away
His truth will remain

consider. a poem.

when old faithful

doesn’t seem so faithful

spinning and toiling is all that’s left

except to pray

which at times I have my doubts about

though it pains me to admit

seems my mustard seed isn’t up to snuff these days

isn’t big enough to move some mountains

makes me wonder why I bothered moving all the ones I have before

what’s it worth to the lilies anyway

they sit in their fields happy as ever

and fall comes

still

Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clotheyou, O you of little faith? “And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.
~Luke 12:27-31
