“A Millennium Poem”
by Lynda McKinney Lambert
While resting here in the warmth of the millennium year
I glanced to my right this morning
only to see that God has laid back his head
and is having a roaring good laugh.
From the beginning of this final year
I wrote no resolutions and set no goals to reach.
My journal is still blank – its bare pages
have never been touched by my pen.
I find that it’s hard to get moving today
my fingers hesitate and pause
searching for the right words.
I continued to search beyond the window to my right.
Fir branches swayed slightly and moved in circles
there was not a bird in view on the sunlight boughs
but I returned here again
as I have invariably done.
Within this tranquil dimness
I tilt my head forward
listen to sounds of laughter.
Here, in the tree where God sits.
