Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Beyond Your Grasp

There is poetry as soon as we realize that we possess nothing
John Cage

If you stand still in the middle of the universe

and hold your hands out

and not want to grasp a thing

than you have grasped it all

If you can fill your bowl with all you want

and then empty it out because there is nothing you need

then you have it all
and if you have no need to grasp or fill or reach
then life is poetry
and that's poetiquejustis
Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.
 Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.
Proverbs 15:16-17
