Blessed in a Big Way

Sun’s not up,
but you are.
Soft blue eyes,
a sea of calm
staring out
our back window…
What’s going on in that green-grass mind of yours?

Hope not much.
You’ve got time.
Years & years
ahead to bide
but for now,
you & I…
Let’s be empty, laugh & smile.
Dada & Miles.

Blessed, boy!
The shape of joy:
To live frame-by-frame
in a big way.
Hey-ey-ey-ey.

Not afraid?
Then I won’t
be afraid
of the dark
or the monsters
or tomorrow…
What a waste when we got one another.

Blessed, boy!
The shape of joy:
To live frame-by-frame
in a big way.
Hey-ey-ey-ey.

Sun drops down.
Moon goes high.
Mama’s cookin’
you’re out back
runnin’ ’round
with your eyes closed…
This is what I’ve been chasing.

Blessed, boy!
The shape of joy:
To live frame-by-frame
in a big way.
Hey-ey-ey-ey.

(12/10 & 12/21/2019 – Gregory Street, Madison, Wisconsin)
