This is the new blog...CONFESSION ZERO


(A Poetic Justice Photomontage)

Thou art nourishment.
Let this world surrender to thee.
Arise and take thy place at the gate of stars…

Thine is the crown of affection. O laugh laugh blue skies
Delight may soothe our errant shells,
Our infected creature and imperfect soul.
We should not tire of thy loves demonstration,
Instead we need hover to the center of its heaven
And kindly bathe in gentle ocean’s offspring.

Thou art nourishment!
Let this world surrender to thee!
Arise and take thy place at the gate of stars…

Summon us forth of thy wonderment. O weep no more!
Our birth, even thine own, we owe to thee,
Needing, even now, to enter thine arms embrace,
To be rescued of ourselves. Consoled. Loved.

There is no other miracle so desirable as our beginning.
Arise now and we toward yearning arms shall move.
