By One

Until the final score is tallied, this most engaging run.

In the game of Joy and Sorrows,  joy always wins by one.

Surrender

If you will lay down your shield
and submit to me your sword
I will arm you and shield you from harm

Every Single Thing

All the things
that we can think of
and the thousand more
that we cannot
are each but a single thing

The best that we can ever do
is bruise or bless
the space around us.

Darkness

Darkness is not the time to close your eyes

Darkness is the time to open wide

For it is within the darkness

where the un-see-able is seen
