The Last Stages Of Surrender…

this

miracle-making

amazing

know-it-all

do-it-all

omnipresent

omniscient

omnipotent

PRESENCE…

that permeates all that is…

 

this

mystical

mysterious

PRESENCE

that I cannot control…

and do not understand…

 

it is to

THIS

 

the

UN-NAMEABLE 

that I now

surrender

allowing

IT

   to possess me…

body

mind

   soul

 

permitting

IT

to

flow

in

through

and

as...

all

that

I AM

letting

IT

manifest

as

FORM

in this

3rd dimension of being...

according to

IT’S

WILL…

and

IT’S

PLAN…

not

   mine

to clear out

Before Entering 2017…

I take this moment to look back over

2016…

 

I focus only on the blessings

The miracles both small and grand

Wrought by Some Great Mystery…

 

Like the miracle of this view…

Twenty stories above the Hutchinson River and Long Island Sound

A $12,000-a-month vista if viewed from a Manhattan High-Rise…

Instead of from a bedroom window in the “Boogie-Down Bronx…”

And the miracle of this spaciouspalatial apartment

That has been totally renovated

Over the past two months…

Right down to the hardwood floors

And brand new kitchen

Whose countertops may be fake granite…but HELL

The entire apartment makeover was

FREE OF CHARGE

 

And so…

I bid adieu to the pain of yesterday…

As I leave my Dearly Departed in peace…

And turn my vision forward on this mysterious journey

Called human life on planet earth…

A journey filled as much with painuncertainty…and confusion

As it is with inexplicable joy and unasked for

Gifts of The Spirit!

 

Adios…

2016!

Y muy bienvenido…

2017!

“Blizzard” of October 29, 2011–Bronx, NYC

storm-tossed trees

A view from my window of storm-tossed trees

fall-colored leaves barely visible

heavily-laden branches swaying

to the rhythm of an unexpected wild

winter wind

snow monsters

huge, tentacled monsters

crawl slowly along the

snow-whitened grass

overtaking the bench

where I sat

just yesterday

in a quiet

autumn

moment

my river

windswept and snow-covered

my river lies barely visible

its autumn clothing

now covered in

winter’s garb

if i were an artist

If I were an artist

this would be an

oil painting

of my river

on october 29, 2011

 if i were a prolific artist

this would be a second rendition!
