THE CRUNCH IS ON


Can you believe I heated up yesterday’s morning coffee, stuck an ice cube in it, (made it too hot) and am now sipping away at it?  It’s not like there isn’t fresh coffee to be had.  It’s that I looked to the pot this a.m. and saw that there was a lot of coffee left from yesterday.  I simply could Not throw it out.  So wasteful.  Occasionally this happens.  Do you do that?  oh BTW.. it tastes just swell and I’m going to heat up the rest of it any minute now.

 How does the Sun feed your life?

When is too much not enough?

Can  you stand in the center of your life without drama?

 

~~~   ***   ~~~   ***   ~~~   ***   ~~~   *** 

The crunch of sand beneath your feet

the crunch of a potato chip

the crunch of a crowd at a party

the crunch of crisp celery

 

Some crunches feel good

Some crunches taste good

 

The crunch of money debt

the crunch of world crisis

the crunch of broken glass 

the crunch of homelessness

 

Some crunches rip you apart

Some crunches suffocate your soul

 

The Crunch is on us all

if you let it wad you up too tight

it will squeeze you to death

 

Find spaciousness in your mind

Find spaciousness in your heart

Find spaciousness in your actions

Find spaciousness for others

 

Give to life space 

for in the crunch of these times

it will be you that gives peace a chance

it will be you that gives ease to trouble

it will be you that gives kindness

 

It will be you that reflects 

  the grace of life everlasting

Out from under it..


Ok.. so I shouldn’t think about the economy and the poo that’s fueling, and supporting us being victims in all the worlds big messes so early in the morning.  Well.. I did and this is the subsequent verse that stumbled out of me this morning.  I just let  it go.  It ain’t all that and then it is.

How is it all affecting you and what do you do to hold goodness to your heart when it not fair and equal?????

UNDER IT…

The house is heavy

Family needs

Work left town

You’re on your knees

 

It’s heavy man

 

Out from under it

Looking grim

Worry is a mountain

Stress keeps you thin

 

It’s heavy man

It ain’t going no

where too damn soon

 

Life waits for no one

The train left yesterday

The house is so heavy

The economy gives no play

Mama and babies cry everyday

 

Sorry man, this is heavy shit.

 

No quick fix for you

and you and you and  you

Humor lacks luster

When the fight is all you do

 

It’s heavy-duty dude

 

There is no getting’ around it

It is what it is.

Facing the big money

When your little pennies

starve your kids

 

How much heavier can it get?

 

It’s not equal.

It will never be fair

How do you rally the love

When there are no equal shares?

 

It’s heavy man and you have

some love to spare

 

Just look to your family

Dig into your faith

Hug your babies

Pet the dog

Look at all that gives

you Grace

 

Lighten the load

 

Look to today

Give yesterday away

 

Now is what you got
