The answers cosmic to questions
tragic, mystical creation yielding
to childlike intuition.
Is love in the brain?
Heart to heart, the toddler
finds the sandbox and a parent
will remark: look how he plays,
does he know he’s loved?
Does he give and receive with
grace, does he say “thank you,”
Does he have the courage to love?
To be himself? To give his gifts?
What if he is rejected?
We have no power to overcome well
the hurt you feel when your dreams
and feelings expressed get waved off
God bless us to a spiritual space,
pass along to our kids not only the
self-confidence to be true;
but the wisdom to keep a Higher Power
there for our appeals in failure.
The higher, mystical truth outside
the lines on structured drawings,
the native Great Spirit—the Hebrew
LORD, Allah, Muhammad and Jesus,
their words, those who raise hands
Matoax and her blessings saving a
new white race, the scar of murder
on their face, all forgiven when we ask
accept her furs, the earth a spaceship
with room for all views, check your
energy, check in prayer every detail.
Are you with Faith or Fear? How do
we reside where the questions stop,
in peace of mind?
Is love in the brain becomes question
no more on the wind of Spirit, live
for it not her or him, fly with the eagles
and magic, love lost wives and beware
the snares that are mere human
hang-ups, grounding us as long as
Ask, receive, love, blast!
Give your song to God and wind
and the denied sandbox dream becomes
only a part of the dance David called
us to before slaying along with
Goliath every prayer-resisting fear.
Wake up, skip the rock and see the
smile on the wind for your life, the hope
the universe has for you being endless
as the pool and its rings in rainstorms.
The rainbow is in the heart;
wait there for all things loving past
insane; it’s all in balance when
love is in the brain.
