Dark December morning
I groggily make the coffee
heavy gray sky slow to move, too
the both of us present to each other

Healing boundaries

Heavily boundaried relationships
can be a holy healing;
do not confuse freewheeling with healthy

There is so much loss

There is so much loss, I say to the Lord,
and so much more to come
Remember my truth, says the Lord:
Eternity
Loss is gain disguised
Gain is loss disguised
Fear not
Eternity covers all

Bad mornings

Even when bad mornings come
the old Austrian pine still holds the rising sun
dying branches still lift the light

From the emptiness, creation
