A Study of Light

A Study of Light

Moods of water float with ease on ice, broken. Let yours too. Water is drawn to rocky shores near naked sand. So am I. What is Love that it should shine through the dark night of my soul? What is darkness that it should reveal the Light of your love? Through fogs of depression You [...]

Radiant

Radiant

Look and see! The sun makes its daily triumphant entrance, sweeps it’s brilliance across the expanse of the sky, pours out its presence on all things, then slips away to give you a little space. It jogs away every night only to circle back to you first thing in the morning. Its entrance saturates your [...]

A Proposal

A Proposal

Will you sit with me? Maybe I need some vitamin D3, I’m just feeling…well, a little blue. Come sit beside me. I’m warm inside my coat with my fingertips tucked inside my palms. Are you warm enough? There are some things I want to say before I forget. Do you remember the day you bent [...]

The Blossom

The Blossom

One move too soon and it may sink. So we wait.   Buoyant in stillness, peaceful in movement. Pure focus. Flowing clarity [...]

Induction

The yearning for oneness connects and, contented, you slowly hear, begin to see in the forms, edges and outline that which you once overlooked. As [...]

A Winter’s Walk

A Winter’s Walk

The last of the leaves linger on branches that twist and gnarl, vulnerable and exposed, extending skyward. The wind moans and whistles through their sinews and tendons. The air is icy, my breath crystallized as swirls of mist twirl like smoke in front of me. It’s not quite as cold as yesterday’s subzero. Cars passing [...]

Child of Awe

Child of Awe

If you, in the midst of the music, carry sorrow, don't be discouraged. It was a dark day for the Child too. He came, a wee Babe, with nothing, to give us His all. Though a great company of heavenly hosts appeared shouting, “Glory!”, He laid in straw in the dank darkness—the heart of the [...]
