Still your frenetic searching
your manic movements
and frantic feeling around...

Quiet yourself,
Come to center,
Relax your tight grip,
and Realize...

The Light
is looking


"The Son of God came to seek and save those who are lost"
-Luke 19:10

Heaven on earth...

(Wintergreen, Virginia)


Let my eyes be so Filled
my soul be so Flooded
my body be Lifted
by Your Beauty
all around...

Your sun pour into my spirit
Your mighty oaks take root in my mind
Your watercolors in the sky
soak deep
and course through
my entire make up,
All of me...

Let Your sacredness make me sacred
In Your Beauty make me Beauty
Enrapture me in Your Ebb and Flow,
The Ocean of You
Till I am,
with all of nature,

a view of You,

of Heaven on earth


"Since the creation of the world 
His invisible attributes are clearly seen,
being understood by the things that are made,
even His eternal Power and Godhead;
in nature we see His Divine Nature."
-Romans 1:20

Song of Solomon 4-6


Oh Beloved,
Blow into this, your Garden,
that its spices may flow out
Kiss me with the Kisses of Your Mouth
and Breathe once again
into dust your Deity...
let me inhale You deeply
and exhale Creation...

With the work of a Skillful Craftsman
Make me the door
through which You come into earth
as You are in Heaven,
and become
for them also



"He is altogether lovely,
this is my Beloved, this is my Friend."
-Song 5:16

* * *

...hard to believe they'll bloom,
much less bear fruit again,
this landscape of a thousand crucifixes
looking lifeless
and beaten...

but within each cross
flows the blood of beginnings,
perennial promise
of return...
of resurrection...

beneath the stillness,
this suspended animation,
are stirrings...

The scene which holds for the eye only death
belies unseen Life within...
welling up,
and moving in ancient circadian concert 
with all of Creation
as it readies itself
 The Reveal.

a time to be born

* * *

...still a little nighttime left,
this Path we walk
to Morning,
where New awaits
- a princess poised for the Kiss
that will waken her from sorrowful dreams... -

...I pull my wrap tight around me
huddled up in the cold and deep 
of winter's womb
wherein Life
is fearfully and wonderfully woven,
wherein I breathe,
in and out,
breath that looks like Spirit...

and wait....

Light will be born
out of darkness
where Life begins...
thus it has ever been,
but our disillusionment at the fact never fails -
Dark places are not always wombs
but wombs are always dark places
where all that is good and necessary
is nurtured and knit together I will whisper thanks
into the gloaming,
yield to eventide,
and pause for a moment
to look up,
to see the celestial reflection
of soon-coming sunlight,
and to let the little dipper
ladle me out
a few stars...

"He has made everything beautiful in its time...
no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end."
-Ecclesiastes 3:11

* * *

healing, wholeness
another round
still spinning...

seed squandered
is still seed
flung to the wind

to take root
and bloom
in another place
at another time...

...I'm hoping to make that rendezvous...

"Beauty for ashes"

* * *

An unfinished Painting
Rests on the easel,
Impossible to judge...

Miles to go,
Many Brushstrokes
yet to be added...

Stories evolving
some still to be told...

So, Sit Still, My Beloved,
Rest while I Work...

Keep Composure,
Just So,
Just there...

Trust Me to cast you
in Beautiful Light

and allow Me to Finish

My Masterpiece

"He Who began a good work in you
will continue until the day of Christ's Return,
developing that good work,
perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you."

Go with God

* * *

Your Journey
carries you
far from Home

Into Cold
and Dark
  and Grey...

Seer of seers
you carry with you
Eyes to See

to Awaken

 to Immortalize

those whose beauty sleeps,
long buried,
unaccustomed to being seen...

You brave this far country,
this forbidding world
to unearth its Treasure
and Return it
Light of Day...

How like you

How like Him...

Dos ve danya,

ступай с Богом

Go with God

* * *

"...for the Son of God came to seek and save that which was lost..."
-Luke 19:10


* * *

We are Homing beacons
to find,
to follow

We are Windows
through which Heaven can be seen

We are His Path personified
aflame with white blazes
and trail magic...

We are His hand
to hold,
and be held

We are the way to The Way
where there seems to be no way...

Given to Him
we are given

"Here am I, send me",
and we are Sent

Handwritten invitations
Come Home...
