Meaningless Chatter

Meaningless Chatter

I'm too tired to write down the bones.

My ears are ringing and my eyes feel like clones.

My skeleton is padded with too many words.

Fatty clumps of adjectives sticking like curds.

And nouns abound 'round my skinny ribs.
Conjunctions join the twins in the cribs.

Another verb and I'm swimming in gunk.

A few more pronouns we'll stick on my trunk.

Just meaningless chatter that jitters my nerves.

More paper to look at or stick on my curves.

I know I am grateful for all you have done.

But listening to paragraphs isn't much fun.

I love you brothers and know you are fine.

Writing down words doesn’t take any time.

Eight minutes to write on this wintery day.

I've written things down, now I'm going on my way.

Janet E. Collins

by Janet Collins

A Wonderful Book,”

Someone handed me this book at one of my book signings, saying it was a love story based on A COURSE IN MIRACLES. People hand me books all the time, but with this one I immediately took notice. I knew I wanted to read it. And when I did, I savored every page. Here is a great adventure story, a juicy love story, and a serious treatise on A Course in Miracles all rolled into one. And it's a page turner. Janet Collins understands A COURSE IN MIRACLES, and she understands love. I would read anything she writes. I'm a total fan.”

Higher Than That

Higher Than That

Who or what is watching the watcher?

A watch is a time-keeper - but what's beyond time?

A time to laugh and a time to cry? Why?

Higher than That or “I am” or of God.

Beyond all thought on this sickly sod.

A sod soaked in symptoms of sinning and death.

needs wringing dry from the simpering cry,

Why me? Why them? Why any thing here?”

Keep letting it go. Undo every fear.

Only love lifts us higher . . . higher than That.

No symbols to cling to. Not even a hat

To shield the mind from figuring out

who's in charge of this dream. Who has the clout?

Forget analyzing who's awake or asleep.

Forget that you're human. There's nothing to keep.

You're higher than That. Keep letting it go.

Know nothing. Sit back and just watch the show.

It's already over.
