For ALL those who-love-me, whose expectations I-never can-fulfill:
I offer up this poetry! I hope it “fits the bill!!”
For, I just-love-a – making up with you,
It works – for a day – or, maybe, even two!
AND THEN – here-come-“wonderful” ex-a-pec-tations!
(Let’s jump in bed – with-their-a-ex-ci-tations!)
It’s-a-DECLARATION: of-all-the-wondrous-possibilities;
That-cry-out, wishing – to “bring me to my knees!”
And make me better – THAN I AM!
I-just-love-to-be – “The Expectation Lamb,”
So I can be – taken – to-The-Slaught’a,
Because I could not do – what I surely aught-a,
HAVE DONE! – or-what I-certainly-COULD-DO,
If I’d only tried harder – for love of you!

I EXPECT – just more of THIS;
But – I-do! EXPECT – “the perfect kiss;”
And-I-DO EXPECT, the “perfect” mate,
And-you-should-maybe-expect – that-sometimes-I’ll-be-late!

But, JUST-KNOW – I-always-expect-perfect, from-you, My Dear,
Because-EVERYTHING-about-you – IS PERFECT! (But)-don’t-fear!

Just take my waiting, trembling hand;
We’ll-travel – to-our-“promised-land!”
We’ll-proceed-eth – over Hill – &-over-Dale;
Jack! – and-Jill-we-are – Did-you-bring-your-pail?

That-pail? filled-with-what-you-expect?
Whoops! I-knocked-it-down-The-Hill! It’s-now-“a-wreck,”
But – that’s OK! Just-close-your-Isis,
For-I’ve-a-million-or-two – “Osiris-disguises!”

“PERFECTION!”

“PERFECTION!” a poem January 4, 2019 (Friday)

I accept, I accept, whatever-comes-next,
But-that-DOESN’T-mean: I’m-gonna-be-hexed!
Or-that-I’ll-just-sit-there – and-“take-it”-all-day!
Yes, I’ll accept, BUT-(I)-can-still-run-away!

(pause)

So, IF you think you’d like to meet,
For-a coffee or a tasty treat,
I’m-up-I-AM-I’m-up-for-that,
But-that-isn’t-“license,” to-be-a-brat,
And think that I will sit all day,
To listen to some endless “spray,”
Of-a-thousand different schemes & plans,
When-I-just-wanna – go-to-Cairns,

(pause)

To-watch a-silly-movie – of-a-girl’s-gorgeous-chest,
So, I’ll give you 15 minutes, and, then, please – take a rest,
While-I-go-in-to the bathroom and drown-there in “the pot,”
OK, I-might-accept IT all – but-don’t-think-I-am-CAUGHT!

Peace

Oneness of Life and Light, Entrusting in your Great Compassion, May you shed the foolishness in myself, Transforming me into a conduit of Love. May I be a medicine for the sick and weary, Nursing their afflictions until they are cured; May I become food and drink, During time of famine, May I protect the helpless and the poor, May I be a lamp, For those who need your Light, May I be a bed for those who need rest, and guide all seekers to the Other Shore. May all find happiness through my actions, and let no one suffer because of me. Whether they love or hate me, Whether they hurt or wrong me, May they all realize true entrusting, Through Other Power, and realize Supreme Nirvana. Namo Amida Buddha

Peace

May all beings be filled with joy and peace. May all beings everywhere, The strong and the weak, The great and the small, The mean and the powerful, The short and the long, the subtle and the gross: May all beings everywhere, Seen and unseen, Dwelling far off or nearby, Being or waiting to become: May all be filled with lasting joy. Let no one deceive another, Let no one anywhere despise another, Let no one out of anger or resentment Wish suffering on anyone at all. Just as a mother with her own life Protects her child, her only child, from harm, So within yourself let grow A boundless love for all creatures. Let your love flow outward through the universe, To its height, its depth, its broad extent, A limitless love, without hatred or enmity. Then as you stand or walk, Sit or lie down, As long as you are awake, Strive for this with a one-pointed mind; Your life will bring heaven to earth. Namu Amida Buddha.

Prayer for the New Year

Prayer for the New Year

Lord,

At the beginning of this new year, I offer you my life.
Come take my voice, may the words I speak be filled with encouragement and goodness.
Come take my hands, may the work they create be generous and giving.
Come take my feet, may the journeys I walk be led by your Spirit within.
Come take my life Lord, for I love your goodness, your kindness and your leading.
