On the Far Horizon: Believe

Arise in hope and look to the far horizon,
Where lies your destination of restoration,
For there is hope to do more than cope
From day to day along life’s winding way

Believe and receive strength for the steps,
Steps that won’t grieve you as you achieve
Such grand promise to which you cleave
As you weave your way along this pathway

Arise, believe and claim the waiting prize,
And always remember: You are not alone!


Halcyon: Romance Me to New Life

As my soul wanders thru numinous grove
Pondering my role and high goal in this life,
You move like liquid crystal so wistfully
And mystically, calling me past artificial
Existence to something more beneficial,
Beyond superficial reality and all banality;
You bid me to enter into an halcyon day,
Luxuriant and peaceful, deep and blissful,
And so I turn to you to unbind my spirit,
Unblind my eyes, and find myself renewed
Into the real me I was always meant to be
. . .
And so I take a chance and dance
In the expanse you freely enhance
As you romance this child in the wild

Rushing like a mighty wind bending trees of men,
Filling lungs with the power of heavenly tongues
In flames of fire devouring every earthly care,
Flowering the soul in all that’s fair and right
And bright and true for an whole new worldview,
As statues crumble and tumble hard to the ground
Without sound; what was lost has now been found;
And the Wind blows where She will…
And where She will … to fill us anew


love and mercy reached down

I was the one sitting on the wall.  I was the one who took the great fall – headlong crashing, shattering.  And nobody could piece me back together again, least of all myself.  But Mercy reached down and Love grabbed hold and did for me the utterly impossible.  Love and Mercy picked up the shards and pieced them together again into something  more wonderful, more beautiful, more radiant than any wonder, beauty or radiance contained in any of the remains of my former delicate life, seated so high upon the wall of self-centered pride and folly…  And I am new and I am thankful.

“I once was lost but now am found, was blind but now I see…”
~  Words from Amazing Grace by John Newton

“I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we  are but does not leave us where it found us.”
~ Anne Lamott, 20th century American Author
