Stumbling words

Sometimes, like now, my words stumble –
alleluia, may they stumble into your arms

Thin veil for silence

Morning train rushes to stillness,
the noise a thin veil for silence

Things that God cannot resist:

anguish
the desire for wisdom
the desire for compassion

Quiet, be quieter than a tree

Quiet, be quieter than a tree
listen to it prattle away:
Quiet, be quieter than grass
listen to it grow:
Quiet, be quieter than your heart
listen to what it’s saying to you:
Yes, those who have ears to hear

Why is distraction so coveted?

Why is distraction so coveted?
Are we so afraid of ourselves?

Fireflies

A forest floor of lights, blinking gently
humble majesty
