Stewed Thoughts


Today’s Special

Stewed Thoughts,
with Over-Ripe Opinions
Home-Grown Philosophies 

While They Last!!

Sweat Drenched,
The long, hot Nights
slowly melting
into Tomorrows,

Safely, Quietly,
within my Dreams,
There’s nothing between me

and everything

As I evaporated
ever closer
to the abyss of sleep,
Suddenly dawned on me
was the how
and the why,
and the reason
things change.

How everything I need
comes to me.
So, completely,
And just like that.
A new dawn.

The Sun rises above the horizon
beautifully, at first,
breaking the darkness,
subdued and diffused.
Then, it bursts out,
burning with fully intensity,
Drying up all aspects of doubt.
Beyond any reasonable explanation
it turns to stone the Oasis of Skepticism
and bleaches the bones of the disbelievers.

And a reverse mystery.
It goes forth
from completion to conception.
Effortlessly, if not quick,
always and obviously, eventual.
At least, to those who’ve seen it.

On the inside, I bubbled
grateful for the wonder
while I broiled soaring,
soiled humidity out.
I suddenly knew
the exact moment,
down to the thought,
when it became clear
that I had curiously,
cautiously, willingly
connected to the most abundant,
inexhaustible, ever-knowing
family of an unknown origin.

I was adopted,
and brought in.
I became an heir
to a powerful, timeless

Not only was my body changed, 
along with my mind and soul
But, I was changed on the outside
and the inside
and everything between.
