The earth and Sky converse
Words in red ever speaking

Heart hymns sung in secret
Sweet whispers of love and truth

A shining sword sharpened
Day's marching orders unsealed

Coffee stain on pages worn
The Son rises early each morn

"Still Not Awake"

Beep, beep, beep!
Beep, beep, beep!
Beep, beep, beep!

Feet to floor
Aim at bowl
Soap to hands
Lather, rinse
Hands to face

Bowl, spoon, milk, mug
Cereal, coffee

Soap to hands
Hands to hair
Lather, rinse
Lather, rinse
Soap to sponge
Sponge to parts
Lather, rinse

Hair brushed
Teeth combed
Clothes, kiss, keys

Where are my sneakers?

"Hello, My Name Is Milk"

My name has been changed
More than once, in fact
The first was when I wed
The second? Just before he’s fed

Baby needs comfort
Baby needs love
Baby needs food
Baby needs me

I can comfort
I can love
I can feed
I can be

Day and night
And night and day
I give my best
While Baby's at breast

Daddy's for fun
I am for food
I'm no longer Mommy
My name is Milk
