Lace-Winged Lake Fly On The Southbound Train Window: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Free Verse Poem

September 26, 2016

She,
lost and trapped,
would never fulfill
her divine purpose.

Instead,
I saw her.
Old lake front habits surfaced,
and I reached out
to remove her.

But then,
I stopped,
placed her gently back.

We had a moment.
Her dainty body
unexpectedly
lifted my spirit
and beautified my world.

Then,
like an angel,
she climbed higher,
and vanished,
leaving only the memory
of her
with
and in
me.

Trying To Listen, Trying To Be: Revolutionary ImproVerse Free Verse

December 2, 2014

It has been a very
long
time
since I have tried
to listen
to the Spirit
in everything
I do.

I’ve spent the last
lost
several years
lost,
just doing
my own thing,
not
having the Spirit
with me at
all.

That is a difficult habit
to get out of,
making your own decisions
and just doing
whatever
you want.
I don’t hear him
very well
yet.
I don’t even ask him
as much as
I should.

I am learning.
I’m very sorry
that you get caught
in the crossfire
of my ignorance.

And my mother and I
sing “I’m trying to be
like Jesus,”
and I cry because
so often
I fail
and
so often
I hurt others.
I don’t want to.
