I’ve been a bit discombobulated lately. How many times can we really use that word in our daily vernacular? I like the bouncy feel of the big word, so I squeeze into it whenever I can. Good thing it comes in my size. Anyway, in my current state, I could not find the Random Acts of Poetry directive for this week.
What’s a girl to do?! Whatever I want, I reckon. So, here are some simple words, verbs and nouns, clinging to one another…
How do you gather round?
Do you offer your hands to another in prayer? Bowing heads and physically grasping your fingers together? Taking turns talking to God on behalf of one another.
Or do you offer your hands for another in private prayer? Doing it for them, by spiritually grasping their heart with your own. Hold another’s needs high, while you kneel low.

I also wrote a ditty for this week’s RAP assignment — July 31st.
Somehow I missed and messed-up on submitting it properly. Again.
This has been a crazy week…

Since I was already on the edge, part of me fell right over the side.
I imagine I will write of it soon. For now, you are invited into my favorite kitchen.
