A Work In Progress

A Work In Progress

I pick up my embroidery
begun when I was young.
Before I’m gone I’ll pass along
what has inspired me.

I am risen from the Sea-
a Tree of Life arisen-
rooted in Earth’s Great Deep,
growing leaves in Heaven.
You ask ‘How can this be?
-for we are left to weep
those held in Death’s Great Sleep.’

I say ‘Weep not, nor fear.
Like seed to flower to fruit,
each different yet the same-
like babe to youth to aged,
each different yet the same-
your Life’s form will ever change.
Why is a new Life’s form so strange?’

‘Your body is like clothes you wear,
revealing neglect or showing care.
You take them off. You put them on.
You wear some short. You wear some long.’

‘Life’s Mystery unfolds each day,
transforming Life in every way.
Your Life is Life is Energy,
God’s own Beloved Mystery.’

‘Many have spoken in God’s Name,
making judgments, fear, and strife,
but God says plainly God is Life!
Life Itself is the Process Divine
using tools of Space and Time-
a Micro-Macro Process sublime.
In this creating, evolving Process,
we are simply A Work In Progress.’

A few stitches more before I’m done
my perfect imperfection.
I’ve given it my best
before I’m laid to rest.
Yet, there’s ever another poem in me
with my next Life form’s embroidery.

Space Exploitations…

 

You, who have gone before,

jumping Space and Time to explore,

we also wish to come out and play,

expanding Life in our own way.

 

We`ll bring flowers to inhospitable Mars,

that fearsome god of ancient wars
whose offspring taught us very well
how War is ever living hell.

 

We’ll bring laughter to the Moons,
as we play our lively tunes,
mining orbs for all they’re worth
to enrich the richest of our Earth.

 

We’ll bring enslaving old beliefs
dressed up in words of love and peace.
We’ll guarantee our Human crews
pay their taxes and their dues.

 

You, among the stars, we so yearn
to understand and quickly learn
how you do this- in your own way.
Please- let us too- come out to play!

Nails

Nails

Nails on fingers, nails on toes–
from birth to death their magic grows.
My mind’s amazement never fails
when human worth is judged by nails!

Teeth

Teeth

Teeth are far more than useful tools.
They are the body’s pearly jewels–
Life’s gifts entrusted to our care.
Oh, what a loss when they’re not there!

Fingerprints

Fingerprints

The Multi-verse grows Itself,
united and diverse, united and diverse,
as our tiny planet spins
within our tiny Universe.
Biological Intelligence–
Intelligent Life on Planet Earth–
expresses higher values
as the wealth of Human worth.
A language made of patterns,
Life gifts each Human birth,
stamping each divine creation
with a clear and holy message
placed on every Human finger–
‘This is My creation,
every daughter, every son,
each unique and precious.’
How Life values every one!!!
The Multi-verse grows Itself,
united and diverse, united and diverse,
as our tiny planet spins
within our tiny Universe.
