Writing Poetry

 At times brooding in the shadow of the night

Gently standing in the morning light

Imago born

Wrestled out of thought and form

Careful of your ego norm

Hidden in tight cocoon

Strengthened wings take flight and delight

Watching created thing

You stand alone and look

Pondering created space

Lamenting from another place

Listening to your tone

Your rhythm

Your rhyme

Searching for meaning

Wondering always

Is this your time?

Contemplative Life (The Pearl)

Grains of sand

Intruding

Irritating sensibilities of perfection

Ambitions of innocence

Hopes of intimacy

Desired community

Belonging

Home

Christ

Holding a suffering space

Bridging echoed dissonance

Covering grace

Eternity in time

Time in eternity

Making us His place

Converting grains of sand

Gently forming

Practice presence

Silence

Hour by hour

Layers hidden

The pearl emerges

Precious delight

Shalom so bright

Joy following the darkest of the night
