eagle’s flight – deadlines – 3/30/15

I remember talking with my Dad about the people he built houses for. He observed that he didn’t particularly like bidding for jobs, because there were always folks who could under cut him on price and time. But he enjoyed working on a house for someone who wanted a really good house, and chose him because he built really good houses.  My brother took over Dad’s business, and he’s like that too.
Perhaps I got some of the family traits here as well.

deadlines
measured by
quantity
style
and time
sit out front
to goad and irritate
without a goal
I can achieve
by creating a new way of thinking
or several “aha” moments
that transform the ways we see and do things
eliminate common mistakes
and allow beauty
to be revealed

(thanks Dave, for the nudge this month to get another poem out)

About Clark W Johnson

I am a poet, interested in using poetry to explore my interactions with the spiritual. I find poetry captures tension, paradox and flow well enough so I can hold experiences at arms length and reflect on them from multiple vantage points. As I walk deeper with my God, I'm finding such a record invaluable for myself, and I find that pieces and parts touch others as well. I love and long for more points of contact along those lines.
