sun warmed, fresh picked bite
streaming down the joyful chin
harvest of content


i am a conduit
a mere vessel
whem empty
You may fill
when open
You may flow.

the gift you have been given
you must give in return,
go forth - not lightly
into the heart of life,
living in the abundance of God,
not caring nor worrying
but rather in hope & trust,
embracing God's wonder & presence
in every drop of the created,
reveling in holy enchantment
& the gentle lap of Love.
living thus is the only gift
we may truly give.

summer's airy breeze
perfect balance of sunlight
golden leaf let go


last day of summer
sticky haze through autumn light
green mingling gold

the ocean is grief
our collective tears
raging in grey waves
pounding the sad sand
pulling against our wish.

the ocean is healing
a gentle flow of change
a play of light
rocking in motherly motion
sweet song in our ears.

man by the road
in a posture of prayer
begging me to enter
into the ugliness of my surplus
and see
what i truly need
will fit in one bag
and my heart.
