A Passing Smile

They blessed me a smile
An acknowledgement
Intentions connection
A gift of heart sent

A drop in the ocean
One of passing by
A sparkle of light
Met eye to eye

A fragrance surrounded
Quick to dissipate
A warming of heart
It did create

In next soul of meeting
Moved my heart to care
A smile igniting
The one light we share


Clouds Through The Window

Viewing through the window
The clouds rolling along
In this moment be
Together we belong

One that draws above
A greater way to see
In its message strong
Connected all are we

One of heavens view
Wisdom that is graced
Available to all
Covering embraced

One of providence
In journey of the way
Let us flow together
With one voice let us pray

John 20 – Pentecost

On the first days evening
When doors were locked with fear
Jesus came to them
In their midst did appear

He said, “Peace be with you”
Showed hands and his side too
As my Father sent me
My friends, I now send you

Then he breathed upon them
Each His word did hear it
Moved within their soul
Receive the Holy Spirit

Whose sins you forgive
Forgiven are the stains
Whose sins you retain
Still they are retained

Into The City

Into the city
Upon a stroll
Air of the breathing
Freeing the soul

Past pizza joints
Businesses fine
The corner bars
Churches divine

Students with backpacks
Women dressed to a tee
Men with a briefcase
Lost minds do we see

Saints and the sinners
A mixture are we
A perfect plan crafted
When walking with thee

Light and Love

We rest in the garden
Of filtering light
Graced with your love
Flows through this insight

Your love is a gift
That can’t be returned
Cast upon all all
Blessed and not earned

We have only a choice
To ignore or to hide
Blessed are those
Who seek and reside

Let us be aware
Our attention turn to
To cherish this gift
Grateful to You

Deeper We Reside

Of this simple prayer
Awareness to see
Holy is this moment
In Your Presence be

One beyond all time
Filling of all space
Wherever we may be
Sacred is this place

Word is flowing through
Below, beside, above
Encompassing the soul
In Your hands of love

Longing of the two
Deeper we reside
Binding into One
Desire satisfied

Fruit of the Vine

A grace that is blessed
Both blood and wine
What is this gift,
Of the fruit of the vine?

One of life’s’ lessons
Of wisdom to know
That of our sharing
Or of letting go

A celebration
Of earth to above
That of the spreading
Of Your precious love

Be joy or sorrow
Reflection to see
Embrace of love
In serving of thee
