Epiphanies (day 378)

within the cracks
between the lines
behind the scenes
lie the signs
of startling truths
and stunning graces
if we open
senses and spaces
eyes to see
ears to hear
minds to perceive
hearts to receive
Epiphanies
all
around

Amen.

Trust (day 377)

hoping
to be
talked down
the cliff
and safely
onto the shore


knowing
that diving
off the
edge into
the darkest
depths of
frozen fear
is the Way
to uncover
the lovelier sight
the brighter Light
of Beloved Being...

(Trust.)

first flip (day 376)

imagining
Your first flip
into the fullness
of our flesh
the floodplains
of our fears
furrowing beneath
floundering facades
of false faces
into our fragile foundation
then surging up
splashing the surface
shining from within
a shimmering
Spirited
Self

Yes!

high dive (day 375)

remembering
the high dive
at the pool
when i was five
and my dive
became a fall
into a flop
upon my belly
turning my front
into a brickwall
fire engine red
feeling almost dead
glad to be alive...

Still!

begin (day 374)

the same sleep
encrusting my eyes
in new ways
the same sun
enveloping the horizon
with new rays
the same fears
encroaching my mind
with new grey
the same Love
embracing my heart
this new day

i
begin
again

Amen.

Gloria (day 373)

she wings
in stars
of Wonder
hallowed
yet humble
she rings
a sonority
of Spirit
mysterious
yet magnificent
she brings
a sense
of Hope
improbable
yet inevitable
she sings
a song
of Love
unimagined
yet ubiquitous...

'Peace
on
Earth!'

Amen.

moving on (day 372)

to welcome
the Light of the world
the Love of the cosmos
into her body
and Being
she needed
to move on
from the familiar
faces and spaces
expectations and anticipations
and let go
and set free
her Self...

Thanks.
