A Breath of Thought

A pause into morning
To contemplate
A taste of our God
And his power so great

In vastness of sky
Of the empty air
A pasture of peace
In Presence of here

A breath of thought
A spark of desire
Gift of the light
Of soul to inspire

Love is the word
Into of knowing
To open the spicket
Of the Spirit flowing

Mist of Trinity

Something beyond the light
This dawning here surrounds
A sacrament of Spirit
Is laid upon the ground

Dew of the anointing
Of Holy view to share
The mist of trinity
Of light, water and air

A moving of the Spirit
Vision of a prayer
Swirling, drifting, rising
Caressing soul with care

Blessing of consuming
A treasure of beauty
Wrapped in sweet surrender
A sacred place to be

Can’t Be

To hear what we can’t hear
To say what we can’t say
To feel what we can’t feel
To pray what we can’t pray

To write what can’t be written
To sing what can’t be sung
To paint what can’t be painted
To do what can’t be done

To be who we can’t be
To know what we can’t know
To fill what can’t be filled
To go where we can’t go

But all is possible
Through our Lord we find
A living miracle
The can’t be is divine

Sun Shower Tears

Reservoir of memories
A blessing of above
Your lifetime of outpouring
Unselfish gifts of love

Stored within the soul
Treasure of the deep
Of our foundation strong
Your legacy to keep

Intimate of knowing
Your blood flows in our veins
Reflection of your calling
Still here you remain

Sometimes in the light
A blessed thought is shared
That stir emotions deep
One of sun shower tears

A gift in which to dwell
Of joy and sorrow too
The smile of your love
In presence here of you

I Can Lend an Ear

Words of my Mother
Of ones I hold dear
“Please remember to call
If I can lend an ear”

When off to college
Arising my fears
You encouraged my heart
With words that you shared

Or raising the children
I was always aware
I could turn your wisdom
You were always there

Throughout my life
A note would appear
On rainy days
Your love I would hear

Though you’ve passed on
I hear your voice clear
“Please remember to call
If I can lend an ear”

Sounds of the Morning

Sounds of the morning
The soul to discern
Of gifts that are offered
As each take their turn

Beyond the horizon
With the light of day
A flock of geese honking
As they fly on their way

The cattle are lowing
A whine of a horse
The sweet song of sparrow
The silence of course

For all draw attention
To our God to raise
In their own expression
Of unique song of praise

Air is Filled

A glow upon horizon
Casts away the night
Gift of a new day
The air is filled with light

Above the soaring geese
As one they fly along
A gift of passing by
The air is filled with song

We feel a drop of water
Of which the clouds contain
A gift of nourishment
The air is filled with rain

We know within our prayer
Allow the soul to hear it
Gift of eternal love
The air is filled with Spirit

Of Sirach 28:30

Of wrath and anger
Beyond what’s right
Are hateful things which
The sinner holds tight

Turn now the mirror
Of my inner view
What is the anger
That I cling to?

A wound that will fester
Of pain to endure
An act of forgiveness
Is the only cure

With help from our Lord
Of His mercy to pray
As we’ve been forgiven
Let us follow His way

We Come to Know

We see in the horizon
Soft the warming glow
To fill the dark with light
That we come to know

We hear in the distance
Honking in the sky
Soon a flock of geese
Will be passing by

We feel a drop of water
Fall upon our skin
And know that from the clouds
The rain will soon begin

We know within our prayer
A voice within the deep
That speaks the Word of love
In our soul let it seep

I Didn’t, You Do

I didn’t hear the whisper
I had too much to do
Of our God of calling
With words that, I love you

I didn’t see the sunrise
Venture to outside
In my comfort zone
Of my walls to reside

I didn’t take the offer
To be generous
I kept it for myself
A joy to be blessed

I didn’t say, I love you
Words for another day
Heart full of regret
For they passed away

I do know You are waiting
With no guilt or shame
With Your loves desire
Right here let me claim
