[FONT="Garamond"][COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]conscious poet sleep now,
rest from lament and contemplation,
a respite now seems like elation.
tomorrow you can dance with alliance and compliance,
tonight’s company you must keep is sleep.

[FONT="Georgia"][COLOR="DarkSlateBlue"]ocean, conviction, wander, contrast, enter
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Contrast, a necessary element in this life
can sometimes take an ugly turn
when it is too stark in a crowded small space;
but in our minds, we can wander the universe
sail the oceans.
Where do we draw the line between conviction
and beating a dead horse,
and enter into an understanding
that as clearly as I may see and feel it one way,
and can see no other possible way anyone could see or feel it,. . .
is as clearly as another sees it their way.

[FONT="Garamond"][COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]dense, clear, sturdy, precipice, pointed
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As we know not the future
we may at any moment of life be facing the precipice
overhanging oblivion.
Stay conscious of each step
and the moment it is taken
even while you hack away
at the dense details of this life
trying to clear a path
to where you want to be
keep your soul on sturdy ground
by caring about how you live and love
about what your life imparts to those it touches,
but don't discern that from the responses
of those who always travel with a full quiver
of sharp pointed criticisms and a tightly strung tongue
for the shooting.

We will all turn for ashen slumber physically.
Our bodies will fall away
even as our spirits soar
free of the restraint (the body)
that bound us at last.
but neither is it an end,
to be aimed at,
just another part of the journey,
and not one to be hurried to,
lest we find ourselves ill- prepared
for what comes next.

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]Doing good and not caring
who knows it,
is the sweetest earthly incense
that ever wafts heavenward
especially if heavens acknowledgment
is not even your objective
but rather it is a natural product of
emulating the spirit of God.

[FONT="Garamond"][COLOR="DarkOrchid"]Emulating the spirit of God
is not done with knuckles white and gritted teeth
trying to keep the resentment out of your voice
as you offer up what you think is the prescribed response
no no,
that is what we call kissing ass
to save your ass
and it doesn't work with God
I assure you my friends
not even your thoughts and feelings are private from God,
the omniscient one,
when you try to keep God out
it's like a child
covering their eyes
and believing
"you can't see me
because I can't see you"
