Modest redstart

Modest redstart watches me behind
old wisterias and then comes down here
on loose gravel where frisks looking something
at the ground as I too often do
 

I feel birds’ joy and freshness that chirps
in the clear and bright light of the day
while I smoke slowly thoughts in the shadow.
Just this moment is beautiful God

My smoke

Photo by JB 2017

 

I need pain in my life
to see well what I am
I need night in my light
to see You further me
 

In the garden of sun
trees and shrubs enjoy light.
Where their roots look for peace
there’s an ancient cave dark
 

Under ground, I go there
to see me in the smoke
to feel all that my smoke
and to be as the smoke
 

Like that cave is my life
many days in my years
when I swear any light
and become only smoke
