driftwood we are

according to Norse mythology
the Norse gods, Ask and Embla,
an Ash and an Elm,
were the first two humans 
formed from driftwood...

aren’t we all pieces of greenwood

newly born driftwood

shaped and formed by our experiences

childhood washed over with 

waves of emotions

weathered wind

sun drenched humans

brought into the world whole

parts of us lost

along the journey

trying to make good

reaching for sainthood

in our feel-good way

some of us

becomes deadwood

trying to rid ourselves

of falsehood

parts of us survive

and we  make-good

providing shelter

to each other

living the Talmud

gnarled and twisted by life

wellsprings of joy

serendipitous appearance

springwood floods

baptize us

beckoning us onward

and

hopefully

we come out

beautiful

at the end

Happy God

Who is this Happy God?

The God who sees all possibilities within you!

The God who loves you as you are!

The God who is there even when darkness is all around you

The God who has no memory but sees you as you are today!

The GOD who holds you in LOVE!

Dedicated to Sister Carmen Sammut, a dear friend, who reminded me of this GOD!

Carmen posed this question to me, “Do you think God has a memory?”
