The poetic city: “Evidence Based Faith”

Evidence Based Faith 

There are moments 
when peace comes over me 
and I am ok with everything,
even the things that I’m not. 
They arrive at odd times
of their own accord,
often when least expected…


     when washing dishes 
     when waiting on freight trains
     when taking out the garbage 
     even when cleaning 
     the kitty litter. 
Whenever they happen 
I know I’m in the right place,
at the right time,
doing the right thing. 
And the older I get 
the more often they happen… 
Which is the basis for my faith
that one day they will be the rule 
and not the exception 
if I live long enough.
