Preliminary Explanations of “Half Faith”

October 13, 2010

“You know  it never has been easy

Whether you do or do not resign

Whether you travel the breadth of extremities

Or stick to some straight line…

In the church  they light the candles

And the wax rolls down like tears

There  is the hope and hopelessness

I’ve witnessed all these years.”

Joni Mitchell, from “Hejira”

STORM  WINDOWS IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA

In this small part of the planet

Nobody  stores  storm  windows,

Though probably,  storms  away  won’t

Muster  much  more  blow

Than in  this  small part of the planet.

TWO  ALARMS   (Impatient On  All)

Is  or isn’t it odd

that the gods have their own take

on what all gets  the go ahead

and all  just what must wait?

I was brought up to believe

That  all’s  seen through  for some reason./

All would happen  ”as it should”/

What if  you know    it’s  all going  wrong,

and it’s all  going wrong all day,

When two alarms should’ve gone off when rising?

When once again you wince & wait for your own way?
