Math and Queries

At the ocean,
I counted waves.
Doubled my math with white caps. Then my hands cupped sand and the sum was lost. These infinite places.

In the city, it seems the only lights come from skyscrapers, which compared to other peaks and the infinte stars, can we really compare? Less than or greater than?

I wonder how many people we have loved or in love? Not only people we love, but things: animals, flowers, places, food, books… add up each beloved part within us? 

How many times have we victorified? Fill in the oval of types of victory.  How many times have we prayed? Fill in the oval of types of prayers. How many times for joy? Fill in oval.

I sometimes make up my own words. I take the noun and do with it, as I please. In essence, I understand victorified is not a word, but it should be, when you think about it for those of us who love word crunching and inventing our own language,

Armored with Gold Roses


after I had walked,
my ring finger brushed
flowers and petals 
but spirit moved me 
I ran until I was tired
the grass beneath me
Mother Earth at peace
all in harmony
//
so I only sighed
when I was tired
and I picked myself
up, catching the wind
to see/feel glory 
there the buds of love.

Ephesians 6.14
