Be it resolved…….

(subject to elaboration and change at authors discretion)

  • must open heart to love abundantly, unconditionally, wastefully
  • must cultivate an open mind to perceive possibilities
  • must cultivate healthy mind and body
  • must heal my body and emotional wounds
  • must have deeper faith and belief in myself
  • must trust in my abilities and capabilities
  • must be more disciplined and discerning
  • must conquer fear and anger
  • must forgive so as to be forgiven
  • must trust more and resent less
  • must tame pride and learn to say no
  • must renew my spirit and take up new challenges
  • must not lose heart and see things through to completion
  • must enjoy life more by living in joy
  • must walk by faith, with courage, hope and joy
  • must maintain a sober life
  • must cultivate my loves and talents
  • must commend the faith that is in me
  • must let go and let God

PS: must make money and lose weight

Thank You Robert Burns.

Homeless Shelter

bitter winds bite a desperate heart
early darkness unsheathes a slivering moon

the perfect celestial sickle
threatens to thresh exposed digits

wayward trundlers heaving bulky sacks of woe
scutter down the city’s darkest side streets

making haste to the only lighted room
that still welcomes them

cots boast lumpy clots
of errant springs and jagged hooks

grappling the lodger atop a mattress
in bumpy knots of institutional green

coughs and snores, cusses and laughter,
sighs and tears all ceaseless prayers,
some mumbled, some shouted, some thought,
some farted, some sang, some roared

Speaking mutely of the weighty day
resenting new hard memories
hoping for a dreamless sleep

Out To Lunch

Freddie Hubbard
4/7/38-12/29/08

Dolphins are dancing in heaven. Jazz great Freddie Hubbard has crossed over. He takes a seat in the trumpet section of Gabriel’s Eternally Yours Celestial All Star Jazz Band. Freddie Hubbard made enormous contributions to the art form. He played with many of the innovators of Jazz like Eric Dolphy, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Art Blakey, Ornette Coleman and many many others.

He will be greatly missed but his beautiful art will live forever.

God Speed Mr. Hubbard.
