Only Lyrically

Month: March, 2011

“and fade out again”

grace is in that sea of people

grace could not help but drown us all


here’s to this lady who lunches

and for her heart having its fill

ash and stones


Today is Ash Wednesday, one of my favorite feasts, along with Palm Sunday and Epiphany.

It’s time for those Eliot lines again –

"...Because I know that time is always time
And place is always and only place
And what is actual is actual only for one time
And only for one place
I rejoice that things are as they are and
I renounce the bless├Ęd face
And renounce the voice
Because I cannot hope to turn again
Consequently I rejoice, having to construct something
Upon which to rejoice..."

There. And now it's time to hear the Stone Temple Pilots. Big Dome. One hour to go.

He sustains me through songs.
