This, in Texas, constitutes magic.

A glorious display
Beyond one's breadth of understanding...

Laid to bring a smile

To those who have never
tasted such wonder.

Ebb and Flow

Home is a place...

Where the ebb and flow of life pushes past me

Characterized by the exuberance of children

Rounded by the joy of their existence.

"Never throw your lasso around someone's neck, or legs",
Matthew says,

"unless they're a bad-guy.

And I don't think God
Would make there be a bad-guy,

Pay attention when those voices speak,

Small, and simple as they are.

Pay attention to the wind,
running its fingers through your hair,

Pressing its mobile hands against your face.

Listen to the whispers of the changing world.

Wrap yourself in His creation,
and remind yourself of Him.
