The Ordinaries

The Ordinaries

 

The dog is old and that concerns me

It should concern me for me, too

But I am inside and have some idea of

What’s going on

What’s going on with you?

 

It is in ordinary time

Running long between Pentecost and

Advent

With special days in between, such as

All Saints’ and All Souls’

It is our time

As Sean Astin’s character in The Goonies

Says

Down here, this is our time

 

Down here, we are ordinary

I have little idea how time in heaven goes

There was a war there, so we think

Our lore recalls a third of heaven fell

Maybe Eden was

A strategy for getting back

 

What we know is

We have this day

For our old dogs

An aging Earth that sometimes

In whirlwinds

Acts as if it knows no limits

And will live forever

In wildness

Without rules or counting,

Which is amazing

And is dangerous

 

Down south where I am now,

Folk really like their porches

They sit on special outside chairs

They rock, they glide

They tell stories

Sometimes it’s only the weather

 

But tell me there isn’t gospel in this

Good news that after storms

We will recover

And we will meet each other at least twice

Here and in extraordinary living

There

Hello, It’s Me

Hello, It’s Me

 

It’s Saturday

An ordinary day

Maybe it’s ordinary time

In the liturgy

Ain’t extraordinary, that’s for sure

It’s dark before dawn

Why was it said the darkest time

The fading has begun

 

Just before dawn, there’s light

It’s an announcement

I am coming

Get ready for me, day

Was driving early in the morning to shoot a wedding and saw this to my right. Had to pull over to capture it.
