Late For Church Again


Sunday Morning Blues


extravagant stretches

take up

the entire

expanse of bed


covers flipped back

by a diligent

timekeeper

quickly replaced


cup cradled

coffee sipped

aroma savored

waking the body


sun on my face

crisp morning air

blues on the stereo

waking the soul





brushing teeth

somehow

takes an entire song

“You go on dear…”


feet catching the beat

child-like joy filling

my sunlit space

late for church again


I wander in tardy

sermon underway

tip-toe to my pew

feeling no guilt


Jesus and I

have been dancing

to the

Sunday Morning Blues
