Clouds

I looked out 

my car window

and saw a heavenly 

sight.  The puffs

of white clouds

were illuminated 

in a peach light.

They glowed.

It was the most

beautiful sight. 

I thought

people need no

entertainment.  All

they need is this view.

I thought

and still think

that I saw heaven

in those clouds.

Purple Eyes

My eyes are brown

at least

that’s how they

appear
once in high school

I had parked 

my car.

I looked in the rear

view mirror

my eyes were bright

purple.  I blinked.

They were still purple.

I went inside.

In the bathroom,

I looked again.

They were brown.

I don’t know 

what I saw,

but I know that sometimes 

when I look

in the mirror 

there’s a dark purple

ring around my iris

and sometimes 

it’s dark brown.

I wonder if I saw

my soul’s true appearance.

Where is God?

I pray 

Thank You for my life

when I wake up

but then I feel lost

irrational worries consume

me.  Oh, where is God?

Intellectually,  I know

that God is there.  Every 

Sunday I’m reminded

of his love but there seems

to be a distance between

his gaze and mine.  Should

I pray more? Should 

I write a sign reminding 

me of God’s eternal presence?

My mind brings me away 

from God’s glory.

Clean Slate

I accidentally 

just deleted

all my files

off icloud.  There

is no way 

to restore them.

I feel strangely 

peaceful 

as all my previous

thoughts and writings

can no longer

haunt me 

I want to refocus

my writing 

on Christ 

and my eternal life 

in heaven.

I will rewrite 

everything 

as if the first 

version had been

burned up.  I have 

seen many unexplained 

phenomena. I will

record them one

at a time.
