What, if anything, exists
Beyond matter, time, energy, and space?

What’s possible to imagine
Outside humanity’s collective memory?

Where should we look
For what’s been lost in the found?

How discover fresh love
In what’s been so long-possessed?

When will we gain courage
To approach the deader aspects in our souls?

The answer is always the same –

In a Holy Celebration!
Upon discovering our “true self” –
That exquisite gift from God described by mystics as

The “pearl”.


COFFEE (For Kefa Cafe)

It gets lukewarm, perhaps too quickly –
But does ratchet up nervous energy –
One sip at a time.

Perfect for writing or reflection –

Before next thought –
A sip –

Energy and enlightment
Out of a dark blue cup
Of bitter-brown Ethiopian coffee!
