04 Joy's Underground Streams Inside All


Icicle rows dripping in the light.. lines of exclamation
points! ! ! ! ! translucent with sun joy
*
Spring willow streamers... the tree cheerleads the birds in branch
bleachers
*
Into shards the dreams have shattered.. the pain
in the dream... has not mattered.
*
From the chalice of his heart I drink love and joy. It is
the only draught which quenches my soulthirst.
*
The sight of him! long needles of light knit.. of a sudden
weaving wings for my heart!
*
As the pure bright mirror transmits the morning sun
we need not understand God.. but only pass God on
*
The morning birds' melodies.. the woodpecker does counterpoint
How is it that his ceaseless drill... shatters the barriers to
peace?
*
Bursting blooms of bluebonnet to the sun sing silent sonnets
A beetlebored bamboo flute.. Yonder wind plays upon it
*
Around the corner from the flesh food coroners,
August field's coronation of a cornucopia of corn
*
The touchdown points of the rainbow are obscured
by grey fog, but as blue and sun appear, the fog has been
absorbed.. into new figs.
*
Laundry dances in the wind on the clothesline... empty scarecrows...of whom no bird is frightened
*
The curvenecked clover lamps hang oer a London sidewalk's cobbles shedding purple light in their wee world
*
Spring rains raise the wells
Every one does upwell
.. merging as they overspill
A new joy river they do swell.
*
Saddened by the plaintive sounds of the mourning dove,
he decided to be silent or cheerful when he spoke.
*
Feared lightning became the silver lining
of the cloud of good change.
*
Water spiders, skaters..gliders, blissdarting shooting stars without
external guiders
*
October when each leaf is a stained glass aperture
in the cathedrol of autumnal light
*
Squirrels spiral up the church spires
and down again to the spirea
*
Alighting and taking off from the tiger lilies and phlox and
sunflowers are hummingbirds and butterflies and bees,
with no air controllers and no accidents.
*
Sunwands turn rain droplets into blackberry drupelets as enkindled
okra seeds acknowledge heliocracy.
*
White morning glories translucent in the sun..bloom fabric
stretched on its ribs like Japanese
rice paper lanterns shining with light
*
The fields are filled with crystal balls of morning dew,
each revealing your destiny: the morning sun
*
As a shaft of light sweeps down a sootfilled chimney
is God's delight available to all.
*
When the couple midnight swam in the quarry,
waving were the skies' reflections starry.***
*
The ice sculpture fish has melted into his waters of completion.
*
Melted the ice sculpture quince.. and flowed into
roots.. swelling new quince.
*
Squirrels tossed away the chewed pine cones which they ate like
cobs of gold corn
*
The drops the rain scatters the river then gathers.. to give to the
sea who in turn offers them in her great chalice to the sun
*
She no longer feels sad that her body is bound by gravity.. as she
wings the hearts of millions.
*
Birds gather on the branch pews of grove choirs
to sing evening vespers to God.

The drops the rain scatters is to J Pichette
