Vinnie Returns in 8 Days

“Ray, Ray, Ray!”

“Yes, Vinnie,” I say hoping it’s something simple but knowing deep down it’s not.

“We’re having a science fair at school. I got a great project in mind. Can this be the story? Can we vote, Ray? You already lost 3 to 1. Rupert, Dexter, and me vote yes. You lose. Tell your readers Vinnie and the Science Fair will begin in 8 days.

What can I say? Help! LOL

Song for Nobody ~ Thomas Merton

A yellow flower
(Light and spirit)
Sings by itself
For nobody.

A golden spirit
(Light and emptiness)
Sings without a word
By itself.

Let no one touch this gentle sun
In whose dark eye
Someone is awake.

(No light, no gold, no name, no color
And no thought:
O, wide awake!)

A golden heaven
Sings by itself
A song to nobody.
