Oh love, can you see us all

pulsing in red,

eyes opened wide

to reason and truth?

.

Oh love, can you see us all

reflecting orange,

imagining change

and eager to grow?

.

Oh love, can you see us all

lit up in yellow,

resolving to purify

air, land, and sea?

.

Oh love, can you see us all

shimmering in green,

rejecting the lies, and

defending the light?

..

Oh love, can you see us all

bathed in blue

with visions of healing,

and freedom from fear?

.

Oh love, can you see us all

radiating indigo,

hands joined together

in what we must do?

.

Oh love – may you see us all

aglow in violet –

creating the crest

of a new Humanity.

Deep in the folds

of the flannel of night

we hear the drums call –

.

     ba ba boom.

.

Our eyes open wide

as we chew through the shackles

and dance ourselves free –

.

      ba ba boom.

.

Up the spiral we climb,

our candles held high

to shatter the gloom –

.

     ba ba boom.

.

At the top we leap clear

of gravity’s hold

on the weight of our words –

.

     ba ba boom.

.

We land on the sun

where we tear off our masks

and meet our true Selves –

.

      Ba Ba Boom, Ba Ba Boom!

Late at night

after she washes her face

and slips from her dress

.

she becomes a teardrop

quaking with grief

on the tip of God’s tongue,

.

but there —

see how the light

shines through.

He shells

those cornered dreams

that rub us raw

secreting love

around torn edges

polishing

with his own tears

pearls of poetry.

Primroses!

how winter thins

as shadows quicken

in sunlit trees

.

as dew swells

the un-sheared lawn

with promises, promises

.

and dreams are joined

at the wing.

Be there in our dreams, Love,

hold us in our waking,

be close when we dance with joy

and when our hearts are aching.

.

Love, be in the gifts we give

and in those we receive,

be there when the white dove lights

and when he takes his leave.

.

Be there when the tide comes in

and when it’s flowing out,

Love be near us in our faith

and nearer when we doubt.

.

Be there when the moon is waxing,

stay close when it wanes,

Love, be in our song’s first measure

and its last refrain.

There are times

love is a fine rain

misting down

all for naught

evaporating before

it can hit the ground

.

but sometimes

love peels back the rain

exposing sun

sending heat

palpitations to the earth

handing us a rose.
