Mother Theresa, “I Listen”

A story is told
Of an interview
With Mother Theresa
A way of her view

What are the words
That you use to pray?
She said, “I listen”
Is what “I say”

Another question posed
Then what does God say
She replied “He listens”
And we go on that way

We pray with longing
Desire that we share
He responds with love
The Word is what we hear

A silent transformation
Of being we await
A binding intimate
Of way to contemplate

Grace in the Water

There’s grace in the water
Of possibility
Through a heart of faith
A blessing could save me

Through way of the Word
The true self of me
A calling of answer
A disciple to be

Fruit of the vine
Of Saviors will be done
A single drop of blood
Could save everyone

Within every soul
May we seek and find
The image of God
A spark of divine

Seeking of the Hue

Arising into dawning
Sunrise gifts’ debut
A hint beyond of calling
Seeking of the hue

One not of the forcing
Being, flowing through
Posture of receiving
Falling, into view

With a scent of stillness
A turn of inner ear
Practice of attuning
Of Spirits voice to hear

Drawing breath consuming
Sweet surrounding air
Found within the silence
Of wisdom spoken clear

Ahead in souls’ encounter
To gift the Spirits share
The need beyond the seeing
To the lost everywhere

A Winters Dawning

Soft is the sunrise
Within winters chill
Colors are warming
Moving soul still

A capture of drawing
Transfixed in the glow
Desire to move on
Is lost in letting go

Inner of the calling
With gift of answered prayer
Beauty of the being
This moment that we share

Joy within dwelling
Appearing shining bright
Found a new perspective
In birth of dawning light

Between the Waves

In ocean of life
Let the soul crave
Seeking of silence
Between the waves

Deep within prayer
Let soul be rebirthed
Seeking your wisdom
Between Heaven and earth

Dwelling above
Unveiling the shroud
Seeking the Light
Between the clouds

Encounter of gifting
Let the truth be heard
Binding of knowing
Between their words
