Submission to the Spirit

Prayer faithfully punctuated
by submission to the Spirit
opens the floodgates to grace
which carries us relentlessly onward
to the depths of the cleansing,
healing waters of Divine Love.

When the last
of your petitions
mercifully drains
from your prayer
like a final needy tear
falling from your cheek,
you are ripe, then,
for the emptiness
of surrender into Oneness

This Friend You Love

This friend you love
is bleeding inside
and you dare not
staunch the flow.
Her heart is breaking,
but it must break often
if she is to find her way.

Does she say her world
is falling apart? Old worlds
must fall apart before
new worlds can be born.
Does she say that life
is more than she can bear?
She is stronger than either
of you can know.

Walk with her but do not
steer her down your path.
Talk with her but do not
write her script.

Dance with her,
just dance with her now
to the silent, healing music,
the Oneness of Love.
