True worth

Humility knows where to go for true worth.
Ego does not

It is not about who they say you are.

It is not about who they say you are.
They do not give true worth

The return to calm

Endless blue sky
absorbs my worries
returns calm

Trees sway like sea anemones

Trees sway like sea anemones in the wind

of course trees sing –

do you not listen?

You give me such times of sweetness

You give me such times of sweetness, O Lord
even in the midst of the storm:
You bring me to transcendence in the squall
by showing me that the storm is a breath on the wind:
You bring me to transcendent grounding
by bringing me to new ground:
Transform, you say
and breathe in me radiant strength
that goes on forever

Stay alert

Stay alert for humility, says the Lord
stay honed
or you will stray

The deeper success

Crying out to the Lord when in failure
is the deeper success

The ideal before-moment (or, Strange rejoicing)

When you are weary, rejoice;
ideal before-moment asking me to fill

When you are terrified, rejoice;
ideal before-moment asking me to anchor

When you are despairing, rejoice;
ideal before-moment asking me to rescue

Strange rejoicing
Strange rejoicing
Strange rejoicing

For world, no sense
With me, full sense

Healing rain

Healing rain
caresses all my relations
and me
unified
