Choosing from Two, Faced Temptations

Centered Sketch of Centered Sketcher

Choosing Still   ©Glenn Gardner 2012

Cascades of thought tumble,

Tumble, tumble

Through rivered expanses

Spanned by bridge links

Minded, mined, and mine.

A flow not sought

But caught and snagged

On senses tweaked by appetites


Thirsty pockets unfilled.

Alright, already, all right, I’ll write
And posit deposits in quiet pools.
In still reflective pools I’ll pause it
Awaiting refreshings awash
Welling up from living word springs
Cleansing, diluting, displacing filth
Percolating through parched soil
To nourish deep anchoring roots.


…You desire truth in the inward parts,

And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;

Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.  Psalm 51: 6-7

Reflections on reflection

Reflex reaction’s reflux

A “been there done that

T-shirts grab bag

Folded, wrinkled,

pressed for time

In dressed up

dressed down

dresser drawers

Mind’s eye vision looking back.

How so I see me seamy

In this seamless robe of time?

My steamy seamy see me

Identifies my dreamy dream me

Captured crazed captions

Commentaries crass

Bite my ass.


Yet Alpha and Omega

Cuts with no paste

Speaking clarified crystal clear confidentials.

” Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.  Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,  I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3: 12-14)

For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.”
(Hebrews 11: 14-16)
