The well of joy


Planted deep within each heart
There lives a well of joy:
Tap into it, and let the waves
Of light and love wash over you
And fill you with delight.

As Lent begins


And so it begins again —
The blossoming, the bloom, the fruit,
The loss, the letting go;
Pink flowers that soon blanket the earth
With tears...
And what shall I take on or release?
What discipline will best inspire
Growth, and what direction am I called to pursue?

The music of Spring


Spring, and the laughing daffodils
Leap out from behind the rock,
Dancing and waving their golden trumpets
In a symphony of delight.

Retreat may not be the answer


Always battling within us,
The madman and the saint;
Driving us further and further away,
Convincing us we are damaged, and struggle alone,
When the only true cure 
is not the isolation we choose,
But rather the sense of connection we shun.

Waiting with patience


There are days when all love asks of us
Is to wait with patience and breathe...

Waiting for change


When the wait for change
Seems to go on forever
It’s easy to lose your head in harsh imaginings 
Of all the possible outcomes 
We’re unable to control;
Harder by far to lean into the present
And stay grounded...

Give voice to color


Don’t be afraid
To give voice to the colors inside you!
