A Ritual of Morning

Lay in your bed

Sleepy eyed


When the temple bells ring

Hit snooze

And again

Then arise, delightful soul clothed in flesh

Light streaming from your heart

Serene, full of unconditional love

Make coffee



Sit at your desk

Check email

Read blogs

Allow the clarity of your brilliant mind

To pierce logical fallacies

Bring forth reason unassailable

Write sarcastic comment

Delete same

Kneel at your altar

Light candles


Holy Mother

Grant me patience



To make of my world

A living

Offering of


Shovel chicken shit
