Have You Done Any Good in the World Today?

Improvising Gentle Whisperings     by Heidi Robertson 7/19/2013

(for M. Devey)

When everything I thought I’d do fell through

I improvised and followed gentler whisperings

Stopped angling with pool sticks

Quit crunching numbers, figuring geometry

And took a different cue

Listening better

To someone not inside my head

“I am here for you,” my heart said.

asking what it is she needed in my soul

As she lined up the eight ball

racked up complaints and pain

I plucked from the right corner pocket

a solution.

Saying, “Come on, I’ll help you.”

As I could see it…

The distance from where she was resonating and where she ought to be

was ACTION….and so I did a simple service.

“It won’t take long at all.”

Golden rule stick on display, tossed old folder files away

Cleaned house

And so we thinned the coin-size heriloom apple trees

made up lost miles

Crossed sticky asphalt parking lots to feed a hungry frog mouth

Recycling with Insa and Alina Eydel

dog smiles and cat laughs

in a kind of yin yang trance

embracing endless time and space in less than thirty minutes

Then after that my friend was in a different place

Inheriting a handy piece of furniture

from Super Lynn

She didn’t even have to ask the boss for money

Here a bit less stressed.

Now where to find her missing chairs and milk tops?

Pop! I’m feeling great!

Today an heir to Power and to love

a kind of Aslan Narnian race

Remembering I ‘m beautiful for Him and God above

Dance stepping friendship with stepped on feet

and hugs

Made room for growth and better harvest…
