On a recent Friday, my 18 year old son commented that I was way too happy ... as I was trying to physically drag him to the deck so he could see what I was seeing ...(I was on no drugs or substances at the time.) He continued to lay on the floor but said he could see what I could see... this poem and photo are a compilation of he and me... He in prostration ... me in standing ovation ... we both saw THIS...

I do not ...know
What to do
But to wait
In complete adoration of You.

I do not know
What to do
But to lie calmly
In complete prostration to You.

I do not know
What to do
But to bow
In contemplation
Waiting on restoration
Submitting in complete standing ovation …
To You.

Be here now.
So I can be there …
If ever…
