hope

here is hope,

deep hope,

the earth is infused

with it,

each tree,

each plant,

waits for fullness

to be revealed,

the earth itself cries out

in praise,

here is hope,

a breath of air,

the caress of the wind,

the crashing of

the waves on the shore,

a bird call,

a mountain-top view,

and even in the deepest valley

she stirs…

here is hope,

light beyond light,

a shining in the darkness,

in stillness and storm,

here is hope,

holding out hope,

to those who would

see,

hear, respond….

re-turning

to begin again,

to re-turn,

my steps,

stumbling,

faltering,

falling,

failing at times,

but moving forward,

onward,

to the source of life,

a love that cannot,

will not, let me go,

drawing me

loves’ magnetic power

remains irresistible,

and should I turn again,

still I will re-turn

for love is whose I am,

and where I belong…

days, and other days…

there are days,

times, moments

when memories flood in,

regrets and heartaches

surface afresh,

pain awakens,

but there ARE other days,

other moments, times that

bring grace, and

healing,

when a smile for the

impossible

is made possible,

and a new freedom is found

in a new way of being….

there are days,

and other days….

perhaps the secret is

to recieve them

all as

gifts…

Birth…

Here is transformation,

love encountered,

seen, known…

a possibility,

recognition,

lighting life

a spark to flame,

love grounded,

real,

heart stirring,

gut wreching

real…

here is transformation,

an encounter with

the divine,

in human flesh,

life to life,

love to love,

birth to birth,

here is transformation

real,

 earthed,

 known and knowing. ..

Possibility and fear

here lies

a possibility,

a question unasked,

potential unlocked,

desires unrealised,

nor recognised,

 here lies

a risk,

an unbidden opportunity,

perhaps an answered prayer (?)

do I cross the shadows

of my doubts and fears

take the risk,

grasp the opportunity

realise unlocked potential,

or do I turn away

again,

and let fear have its way…

Offering 2

here are my desires,

my ideas,

my certainties,

my doubts,

loves,

fears….

here are my

knowings,

my unknowings,

my hidden

and seen self,

here are

dark and light,

silence and shadow,

joy-filled laughter,

tearful groanings,

here I am

a mixed muddle

of messy

humanity….

only this

is my true

offering…

Offering

how do I pray

when my heart and mind

have no words to express

the depth of

longing I feel,

when I cannot unpack or unravel

the desire

except to call it what it is,

hunger, and emptiness,

longing for more,

but more of what?

A new way?

A new start?

A vital connection….

+

Perhaps in silence I simply

hold the hunger,

the emptiness,

the longing

as an offering

of love…

pathway
