Things Are Looking Up

Things are looking up.

When soul is lemon-squeezed

and gutter-balled,

where else can it go?

When spirit is avalanche-prone,

barreling spiral of mountain-top madness

plunging to certain death in

cataclysmic fury,

getting up is

supreme progress!

When  bottom is a taste in the teeth

and a grit in the face,

raising head to heaven

is elevation,


accession to the Throne.

    How, how, how do you continue to write such wonderful interpretations? Fantastic. And, it is wonderful for me that you chose to write about sunflowers – one of my Dad’s favorite flower to grow.
