Pinto Beans

cleaning pinto beans
mom’s echoing voice caress
posole soup spark

makin posole, making enchiladas, and making not even close to my moms tortillas brings back the spirit of my mom so sweet…. the whole process. she use to make us girls clean the beans, always cleanin beans, and she’s making oh my god homemade tortillas…

..when i saw this unbelievably beautiful photo, psalm 23 came to mind, ..” the lord is my shepherd i shall not want, he maketh me to lie in green pastures…”

first we held hands
not so much for her
possibly more for me

am i in heaven yet?

we sat silent for awhile
she was slowly slipping away
forgetting where she was

am i in heaven yet?

clutching heavenly clouds
entertaining existential eternity
in the silence of tv chatter
not wanting her to go

am i in heaven yet?

ms barbara brow past away this morning, we are grieving… though excited for her, as believers, absent from the body is present with the lord….

a small gesture

thommyg’s three word wednesday 3ww this week offers: demure, offend, volatile
photo: gordon saunders, flickr

grasping at divine divinity
the dogma offends the earthbound

fickle the four fine winds
toss the tug of volatile views

learning to lean in lightly
the docile swaying strokes the demure

poached in a round rosy ring
the egg of ego softens with a shatter

the quiet still of yes & no

thommyg’s 3 word wednesday latest prompt… 3 words: break negative surface
photo: Towel,  WHUhnnnnnnnn, flickr

running fast sometimes
breaks the prowling bad
that sticks sticky
to the skin of
my surfaced soul

the negative splash
dripping wet
cool kaleidoscopic monochrome
arrayed in candied crystal drops

squishy squish
my shoes sing
firmly fixed
the ground rolls

stability silly
i find home
a towel of tenderness
soft  & kind
drys the wicked away
