A Pilgrimage

Let me take a pilgrimage
To place of blinded eye
One of the uncomfortable
Attempt to unify

Package for the journey
Gifts for which to share
Humble, openness
Open ear to hear

Mercy at the ready
Leave “me” at the door
Expecting of the nothing
Judgment be no more

Faith be my foundation
In what you send my way
Be my light of journey
All trust in You today

Challenge lay ahead
Courage when strength feigns
Dependent all on You
By my side please remain

Season of the Way

Beautiful horizon
In the winters chill
Soft palette of color
Diffusing of my will

Trees are silhouetted
Etched upon the sky
Blue and pink are mixing
Calls souls to unify

Geese of morning honking
Frozen is the ground
Drifts of snow remaining
Barrenness surrounds

Sun of warm arising
Though vision let us pray
Emptiness of calling
In season of the way

A Year of Mercy

A holy man of God
Proclaims a jubilee
Calling all souls to
A year of great mercy

Open wide the doors
Oh Spirit please impart
Your gift of binding love
To enter in the heart

Pushing me to go
Through the Holy door
Loving and forgiving
Your free gift to outpour

Mercy and forgiveness
Not words just beautiful
Received and to be practiced
Given plentiful

Year of celebration
Of our greatest need
Choice of blessed sharing
The one whom we’ve received

One of transformation
Welcoming mercy
Courage for the calling
For all the world to see

Prayer of Stilling Pond

Retreat from busyness
Moving of beyond
Through word of nature speak
A prayer of stilling pond

Psalm of flowing stream
Glory of mountains high
Adrift in ocean deep
Lost within the sky

Light that is laid down
Angles shadow cast
Reflect the color bright
A prism to unmask

Living water flow
Glory of Your might
Mercy of the deep
Found within Your light

A seeking soul discovers
Your treasure of the true
Gifts divine abundant
Drawing soul to You

Season of Enrichment

Season is upon us
One of purple hue
Enriching deep the soul
A time of different view

Be of deep reflection
Returning to the Word
Living of the simple
Spirit pray be heard

Seeking out the poor
To give with open heart
Holding nothing back
Blessings to impart

Fasting from this world
Simple way to be
Focus of the Holy
As it’s not about me

Forty days of sacred
Drawing to the one
When passion was fulfilled
And a new world begun

Stay True

In between the sleep
A word comes flowing through
In challenge of the way
My child, to me, stay true

Easy to lose focus
Through lens of ego see
Protecting my importance
Or my security

When power drives my word
Or drowning in my fear
Returning to the center
Meeting Spirit here

Pulling out the straight edge
Ways of Jesus be
View of heavens love
Shared through humility

Building of the kingdom
Flowing love of You
Aligning of the way
To You, let me, stay true

Resting Now to Pray

Wake up in the morning
Coffee shower, shave
One of just routine
Step closer to the grave

Still my soul, love of God
Thought flow now away
Speaking words of silence
Resting here to pray

Entering of Presence
Giving of control
Drifting into dwelling
Way within the soul

Speaking Your Word through me
Translucent in beyond
Bridge of Saviors passion
Deep within the bond

Light of heavens blessing
Enwraps the inner space
Gratitude eternal
A prayer within Your grace
