Imagine

Imagine

I love how peaceful and still everything is in the early morning hours of the day—twittering birds, a ticking clock–the silence refreshes my soul.
I breathe more deeply in these moments when nothing is vying for my attention—no doing, just being.
Even the hands on the clock seem to move slowly in this healing revelry.

In the stillness my imagination takes me away . . .
. . . to the ocean where I hear the calm assurance of the rhythmic waves gently breaking and feel the salty mist on my face.
. . . or to the forest my soul wanders–I lift my arms skyward as if I am a majestic conifer in this tranquil cathedral; I smell the dewy moss growing.
. . . or to an open field where I lie down among the wistfully swaying grasses looking upward to an ink-black sky dotted with incandescent points of brilliant luminescence.

The reverberating timbre of a train horn in the distance brings me back to my office.

I wish everyone in the whole world would stop at once if only for a minute to drink in and embrace our being together as One.

All Creatures

All Creatures

“Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
he made their glowing colours,
he made their little wings.”

Cecil Frances Alexander

Dusty Feet

Dusty Feet

Hopelessly weary,
dressed in rags,
her care-worn hands
and silent tears
cleanse his dusty feet.

As she kneels,
heart in anguish,
her whole being is
enveloped within
His tranquil soul.

Drying His feet
with her hair,
anointing them
with grateful kisses,
she is free.

Sacred Holiness

Sacred Holiness

heart of my heart
source of my soul
sustainer of my flesh

in you I live
move
and have my being

from the highest
to the deepest
as close as east and west

all dimensions, all degrees
time and consciousness
eternally we are

one in trust
one in truth
one in love

You are
as I am
sacred holiness

Ever Never

Ever Never

Ever merciful
Ever generous
Ever gentle
Ever kind
Ever true
Never judging
Never scornful
Never selfish
Never proud
Never rude
Until now
Never have I ever
Known such love
Without it
Never do I ever
Want to live.

I Am

I Am

No worries, roles or constraints;
Perceived labels, none.
Being who I am meant to be,
Living as I am intended to live.
Without quotation marks I am.
