I just have to wait a little bit,
and take in all that is around me,
the flotsam and jetsam of my life,
that piles up and hangs out and scatters through
my living.
What beauty!
What trash!
Oh, dear God, I really need to take care of that—umm, later.
Is that thing still around?

Wow, I have been looking for that piece of my heart for a long time.

So much juiciness and flavor,
so much junk and whatever.
So much of me, so much of You.
Holy and Hallowed and Love.
