Eid

i want

to dance!

listen to Jill Scott’s

“Whatever, Whatever”,

savor

every

golden

moment–

we are

free!

i want to eat,

run,

taste the salt

of Galveston Bay…

i want to don

a brightly colored scarf,

turn heads

and smile.

i want to

hold the hands

of my grandchildren

smell their innocent

child’s breath

and be pleased.

i want to walk strong

and continue

to conquer

and enjoy.

i want to hear

the wings of angels

and know

that i

am meant

to fly…

She Says…

she says
she thinks that
i
am from
the future–
an interesting notion.
as i muddle through
the angst of life
always before
or behind…
seeing,
but often veiled…
time is distorted
by human reasoning–
compacted within
its limits
into something
seemingly manageable
…but i do visit
vast worlds
and interact
with their beings.
yet the space
i occupy
on earth
is small.
i am not a purveyor
of time
or its expression
in tenses.
i travel between its borders
searching for Truth
and
my place
in
All
Existence.
