Promise of Spring



A chill morning in the vineyard, and yet --
the mist shimmers with the promise of spring.

Out of darkness


Step forward, out of your darkness.
The day may not be bright and sunny
but the world is full of color and light --
more than enough to help you find your way.

What rises up


If we approach the world laden with expectations,
there's always a risk we might be closing ourselves
to the possibilities that lie waiting
when we're open to what's rising up to greet us.
"Mystery is always present, 
waiting in every moment, at every step." (Loori)

Welcoming the light


After the rainfall, 
all creation lifts its face,
welcoming the light.

The choice


We're living in a field of opportunities:
We always have the choice.
We can rejoice at the beauty that surrounds us,
or continue to bewail our limitations.

Add color to the scene


Your job's not just to float through life,
but to add color to every scene.
Don't worry -- you don't have to dress yourself up:
you're beautiful, just as you are.

Dark resistance


Assumptions seem to root themselves
like trees across the landscape of my mind,
standing proud and strong, casting their angry shadows
in dark resistance to the light of truth.
