The unseen moment

There is a surprisingly thin line
between the fight for justice and the fight for vengeance
and how often this line is crossed

The cement pourer

When the path crumbles beneath your feet, take hope
for God can put dust back together

The holy fight
is self versus self

Formulas

Just as there is no formula for God
there is no formula for letting go
except, perhaps, to accept the fall

The beginning

Adventures can begin with an explosion
but sometimes the first unrecognized steps can begin
in silence

Homecoming

Welcome home, dear one!
How long I’ve waited to hear your footsteps across the threshold;
come, let me give you rest
let me give you solace
let me give you nourishment,
for the journey is far from over,
even when you’ve arrived

Holes

I thought I knew what a hole was
but then you left
