Water Shine

How glorious
This water shine
Brings joy herein
This soul of mine

A stirring now
Within the deep
A drawing prayer
To soul it seeps

From where it flows
This light above
That speaks it’s only
Word of love

A source beyond
And yet is here
Our God within
Arises here

Parable of the Little Fish

There was a little fish; curious was he
Wondered, what is water; So, asked the elderly

Travel far and upward; Raise your eyes and see
Water will you find; Coming down on thee

And so, the fish did swim; Exactly as was told
Rain fell down upon him; Water he behold

He was satisfied; Of this knowledge know
But something stirred within; That deeper he could go

What if he discovered; Of wisdom of sublime
That he lived in an ocean; Of water, all the time

Constantly surrounded; With currents and movements
That water gave him life; And still a greater sense

Water is within him; His nature, very core
Not a distant realm; His being and much more

And so, it is with God; Our relationship to find
Above, around, within; The dwelling of divine

Based upon a story in “Centering Prayer Meditations” by David Frenette

Still Water Still

View captures view
Still water still
Sky empty sky
Fill silence fill

Light shining light
Go letting go
In dwelling in
Know Presence know

Love receive love
Be aware be
Flow Spirit flow
Thee within thee

Share wisdom share
Cease judgment cease
Love sharing love
Peace flowing peace

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

Still Be The Water

Sweet is the silence
A beautiful psalm
So still be the water
Of surface so calm

A simple reflection
One of the deep
Into the soul
Let this moment seep

A moving into
Contemplative prayer
A drawing of being
Of your presence here

In language of soul
Of simply to be
One within all
Through the love of thee

The Water Lay

My joy this morning
A time to pray
Tween soul and sun
The water lay

Body of spirit
Calming waves flow
A brilliant reflection
Sets all a glow

Lifting of soul
Word of light shines
Love spoken clear
In sparks of Divine

Still the soul softly
Let nourishment seep
Son, Father and Spirit
Instilled in the deep

Wisdom of Water

Questions of life
For answers we seek
Through wisdom of water
Let the Spirit speak

Temptations of world
Descend from afar
Will drift away
For they’re not who we are

Events of our life
Rise high and low
As waves drift, along
We follow His flow

In stilling waves calm
A beauty to see
In the lights reflection
Be souls’ purpose be
