Danger Signs

Learn to recognize
the signs of danger
for a life of compassion
and grace,
and when they appear,
surrender yourself
to the Spirit anew
and proceed only
with prudence and care.

Need

IMG_7374
Forever reaching,
those branches of need
from the tree of life,
some with your name
etched into their skin,
calling out to you with hope
and waiting, waiting
for a compassionate reply.

Walk Naked

Up North 040
Leave your boat on shore,
overturned by the weight
of your fears, judgments,
and anxious expectations,
and walk naked into the water
that calls you to know again
the timeless rhythms
of the Creator’s touch.
