LESS THAN GRAND DESIGNS
(3/15/17)

most days
are consumed
by minutia

personal

social

nits

gnats

sucking us
dry

depleting
our energy
supply

preventing us
from considering
the greater implications
of our spiritual
journeys

we wish
to find
The Divine

in every moment

in every movement

but the realities
of daily existence
eat us
alive

we find only
our obsessions
with the physical
universe

wanting
to pray

picking
our teeth
instead
