There was one
And yet another, still.
I am not certain,
If someone started on the inside
and drew outward.
Or if they started on the outside
and drew inward.
It doesn’t really matter which way it was created.
The important thing
Is that the goodness cannot be contained.
Hope spreads gently,
Yet, as insistently,
as the rays of dawn
through the emerald leaves of September.

There are times when it’s so very still here.
A hallowed sanctuary without doors or windows.
The comings and goings are silent and purposeful.
But this morning there are wings fluttering in the shade.
On a branch nearby and another further on….
They sing a note or two ..
And the light hears them..
And smiles ..

I love the way the creek twists and turns and I can only see so far at any given time.
But when I keep walking and come to a new place, I can see more.
See the water from another direction.
And, some days the light falls so lovely and I am in the right place at the right time to see it there.
It is a beautiful little gift in an ordinary day.
Making it not so ordinary after all…
I hope today is ordinary for you.
And that it is full of beautiful little things to light your way…

There is no lovelier way to share the light
Than to let it come alive
And speak for itself…

Woke me in the deep of night
I turned the knob
..opened guietly the door
My thoughts were standing there
So, I invited them in
Closed my eyes
And soon enough,
..was back to sleep again
Morning came too quickly
All I could recall was the knock…
So, to the early things I went
And everything else, I quite forgot
As the candle flame warmed the kitchen well
I listened, to the sky beyond the feather
I gazed, into the light bound by the crystal
..no matter which way I turned them
But, where was the water…
I left on tiptoe
In search for it…
Every step a doorway
Lush greens drew close
When the rain is coming for you
It speaks the same as the rushing wind
The only way to know which it is
Is to look up
If the tops of the trees are waving
It is the wind…
…the trees were steady
And so the rain came for me
As the doe rested in her place
And the lightning
Now and then, broke the heavy sky
Drops fell long upon the lake
Their spell was cast
And I was lost in knowing…
The light is held by the water
As surely as by the stone
And in the falling falling
I heard the knocking
Of the night before
Light comes silently calling
I turn the knob
And open wide the crystal door…

I have never gazed into the heart of a flower
That I have not found the mystery of love
I have never known the dance of a butterfly
That I have not found the soul of hope
I have never been lost in the music of the water
That I have not found the peace of now
I have never searched the earth
In all of its magic
That I have not found…
true, and good, and,
…worth all of the searching…

A pocketful of coins
I give to you..
to spend in any way,
They aren’t pennies
Or even silver dollars
They aren’t made
Of earthly gold, at all
Rather, they are spun,
Of gossamer and light
Only the truest things
Will they buy
Those from the heart
Unseen by the eye
