Today’s Beach Walk Story

today i walked
for the first time in days
since our life was turned
to wet clay again and the
churning of change unveiled
herself like a bride waiting to
be kissed. I pursed my lips for
the umpteenth time and crawled
out of bed early the next morning
carrying my bags of cans and bottle
for the guy that sleeps in an ancient
camper where I park at the beach. felt
good to begin again my knee yelling but
still I went to the soft sand and took it all off
socks and new shoes like going into training
for walking strong so when I was done and walked
past my old coffee shop without stopping, bare feet
and all, the girl who needed a boost a few months back
spotted me and called me inside saying this is my last
day here her smile ablaze she has graduated and become
a message therapist and will work at a great spa in La Jolla
instead of yelling in anger at the new girls, transformed by the
love i took out of my pocket $100 with the key to the Universe with
which she has now unlocked her life she told me she could see the
image of the divine on her own face the only person who has tasted
our church funds and guarantee saying this is the touch of the divine
you are whole, the others have just disappeared from the street where I found them sleeping, but today the Universe gave me a peek of the life a seed of grace grows.
