Monday (Breathing out one side) Musings

One side of my nose is stuffed up. Weird. I plan to take some medicine ASAP. I will not be sick in Mexico. Damn it.

Morning Song

The red dawn now is rearranging the earth
Thought by thought
Beauty by beauty
Each a sunrise link on the ladder
Thought by thought
Beauty by beauty
The ladder the backbone of a shimmering deity
Thought by thought
Beauty by beauty
Child stirring the web of your mother
Don’t be afraid
Old man turning to walk through the door
Do not be afraid.
