Improvisation 01 15 2014
Improvisation 04 18 2014



Pinned to walls of apartment halls
Leading to rooms of mansions
Friends live in fantasized home
Addresses - many wings attach to
Fit inside conviction - images
Stuffed in albums - sleeve hidden
Subatomic nuclear energies spin to
Bond nostalgic histories together
To spin irretrievable misadventure
Wasted on experiences in solitary
Confinement -I spin here as though
I were there hoping to find spirit
Unions both here and there -though
Another passenger invisible on a
Love Train spinning out to quanta
Edges - as happens to leave none
Here alone -so tomorrow we will
Appear exposed to ‘Spacetime' -as
Spirit clouds pinned in dissension
But by the force of love I am here
And there -and you are there and
Here exiled from forgotten arrival
Stations and departures - friends
Do not fail to return from dark
Absurdity and missteps wobbling on
Floors and doors of trains -hold on
Light sets on the beloved embrace.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A day starting out doubting the memory of here or there
and a failure to recall where... so humans on a train
miss stops again and again for the fate of genius
but GRACE FILLED... The Lord sits silent spilling trickles of abundant grace onto the embrace

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
