On trust and strange hunger

When you trust in the right source
forever satisfaction

When you trust in the other sources
forever strange hunger

The release of sadness

Just as clouds gather, carry rain, and then release
so too my soul, for pain; I let it all fall

Please let me in

Please let me in, says the Lord
Pride has shut your door

The comfort of death

Death is just fine for me, says the earth
so don’t be afraid to die
gateway to transformation
to becoming fertile dirt:
Fear not the process of fertility

The surrender process

You must work with all your strength to surrender
until it is time to surrender that, too

You have walked the path of death before

You have walked the path of death before
so take comfort
rejoice in our history
you know what happens next

Excuse me

Excuse me, but God just told me to praise,
so pardon me while the praise wheel inside me spins and whirs;
Do not worry. I am still here.
I am more here than ever

Stabilizing and strengthening your weakest parts

To stabilize weak body muscles,
strengthen surrounding body muscles
while strengthening the weak

To stabilize weak spiritual muscles,
strengthen surrounding spiritual muscles
while strengthening the weak

Everything is in the system
and that within that
and that within that

Come, O weary one

Come, O weary one
Come to the cave
deep and protecting
sheltering and hiding
womb of my earth
Come and rest

The amazingly new

Let me turn you around, says the Lord
let me boulverser you
let me turn the downside up
the upside down
the inside out
the outside, let me shred into confetti paper –
let me surprise you
let me dumbstruck you
let me take you by the hand of your heart
and whisk you away to the constellations
let me redo you
let me mess you up
let me reconstruct
let me cut and paste
let me create
your sense of sense doesn’t make any sense in my presence – listen!
Let go of the known
to step into the weightless unknown
Come to healing
come to growth
come
release all anchors
be shattered
let me put you back together
but not back together:
until you are something

amazingly

new
