“Come, Unity”

 

Come, Unity.

Let us commune,

as One.

Ride

the tempestuous waves

of Life,

in Fellowship.

Leaning,

upon the Everlasting,

fasting from the

false economy of

fear-stained living,

let us

learn, upwards.

Be the

Cadence of Kindness

and Giving,

that begets

acoustics of Caring,

phonetic footprints,

of Sharing,

left,

on the sand dunes

of memory….

…and

let us bond,

our Celestial tunes,

of

Spirit, Soul, Mind and Heart,

and bind together…

so that we never,

ever,

fall apart.

“As Good As”

 

“Not, Father.

Not yet.

As good, as it gets.

Early-rising.

Industrious.

Committed.

Taking care of us,

beneath the banner

of Faith.

My Kingdom Wingman.

There, have I nested,

in valleys,

and the flood.

Were we not blood,

I’d seek you,

for ‘Best Friend’,

who knows

what discretion’s about.

I, tell you.

Discerning advice, comes out.

Not, Father,

but,

esteemed Elder.

Son of Encouragement,

I thank you.

I love you.

May you, ever, flourish,

onward and upward,

from the root.

Not, Father.

Not yet.

But,

when that time comes,

it will totally suit.”
