Pentecost personified (for Ian - day 95)

sometimes
the Fires of heaven
blaze through the warmth
of gentle giggles
the Winds of wisdom
whistle through your ears
in wonderful whispers
the language of Love
sings through the sensations
of sacred Silence

for incarnational inspirational Ian,
Thanks.

Amen.

maranatha (day 94)

waiting in Silence
until Fire descends
on heads
in tongues
spread by Wind
from lungs
through larynx
over lips
a message of 
Love
Peace
Hope
in tongues
of nations
far and wide
immigrants
expatriates
outsiders
welcomed in Spirit

Maranatha!

Amen.

figures and nails (day 93)

how come
just at the moment
when I think
i have everything
and everyone else
figured out
nailed down
You remind me
of the cosmos
that is expanding
beyond calculations
and the cross
that is emancipating
beyond crucifixions?

Thanks. 

Amen.

doing vs. being (day 92)

You remind us
often
that we are
human beings
not
human doings
yet
You also say
often
that faith without doings
is not faith
at
all

well...which is it?

Divine eternal answer =
'Yes'

thank You
for the embrace

Amen.

Yourself (day 91)

why is it
that when
us human beings
act like
human doings and
act without
considering how
our actions
might impact other
human beings
we blame You
for not doing
something about it
(honouring our freedom)
and being
Yourself?

Help

fear and Love (day 90)

why is it
that some of
us ones
who follow
the One
who said
'Put away your swords'
and 'Fear not'
fight for our right
to bear arms
and barricade ourselves
behind a barrier
of fear?

Love, help us. 

Amen.

running in flipflops (day 89)

sweating in seat
waiting for release
scooping up backpack
scooting down aisle
pushing past pedestrians 
slapping down stairs
diving through doors
pacing on train
panting past refreshments
running in flipflops 
sliding into gate
thirty minutes late...

door still open!

Amen!
