62 days of gratitude on the wall...

i know it is
my own
shortcoming

we all fall short
of
our potential

i can't
seem
to help
but respond
viscerally
to other's words
thoughts
expressions

and, oh
yesterday...

i read a post
that had me
so rattled

belly churning
running for
the ginger tea
to smooth
tummy and nerves

wondering
resolved
resigned

wishing for the
humility
to not take things
personally


for the words
to express
the other side

and then the
pendulum swung
as our bard
poet
songbird
sounded

(as did
angel gavriel
the messenger
whose name translates as
'the source of all power
makes me man-like...
has made me
appear in the flesh')

depth
beneath
a veil
of words

the pendulum swings
the balance strikes
the messenger sounds

our poet's
beautiful words
wondrous expression

thank you
