Spring rain

Wet, fresh leaves
supple, tender green
birthed and then baptized

The beginning of flight

Downy young feathers
bird in nest looks down
longing and scared

The spiritual wisdom of weak coffee

Weak coffee
hints at what it could be
but isn’t

Don’t live your life being weak coffee!
Hold nothing back!

When God becomes a protective koala bear

Come closer, God whispers
I am already in your pouch, Mama Koala, I say, snug and warm
How can I come any closer?
And then she shows me how

In the face of threat

When besieged
Breathe me in
Infinity always prevails

When the weight of my heart is so heavy

When the weight of my heart is so heavy
that not even seven cranes can lift
I turn my head to you, eyes aching
and let you start the slow drain into emptiness
murmuring that then you will begin the fill

Step by step through the wilderness

Step by step through the wilderness
one sun, one moon, one sun again
one breath, one small clearing
one small thought of hope

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
