Questions (I Hold in My Heart) … (03/20/14)

I hadn’t seen my dear friend Fred Lansford in many a moon (living on opposite sides of the globe will do that) and I didn’t expect to see him at all on the last day I ever did. Fred & I had stayed in touch via phone & email whenever my work took me back […]

To find our Beloved … (09/06/12)

“In truth everything and everyone Is a shadow of the Beloved. Our seeking is His seeking and our words are His words … We search for Her here and there, all the while looking right at Her. We ask over & over: ‘O Beloved, where is my Beloved?’, And yet all the while we are […]

Once in a Blue Moon … (08/31/12)

The Road I have begun … (07/15/12)

My eyes already touch the sunny hill … going far ahead of the road I have begun. So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp; It has inner light, even from a distance- and changes us, even if we do not reach it, into something else, which, hardly sensing it, we already are; a […]

“Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things, feel the future dissolve in a moment, like salt in a weakened broth. What you held in your hand, what you counted and carefully saved, all this must go, so you know how desolate the landscape can be between the regions of kindness … […]

Put your Prayers to the Pen … (12/30/11)

Love is difficult; choose Love anyway … (09/27/11)

“When Love beckons to you, follow him, though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste […]

And then the Wind … (09/21/11)

“And then the Wind” I sit and seek anything comparable to You … Weathered faces of wisdom are no match for your calm Truth. The swaying of the trees no match for the way you dance your every move. The clear sky, but a foggy reflection of your eyes’ crystalline depth. The sun, still jealous […]

Futures of Joy … (09/05/11)

“Futures of Joy” I have walked the Halls of Eternity, Always by your side … Many of our futures have I touched; … all of them with gentleness, … all of them with Love. In most you are with Me, In many you are my Muse … In some you are with another, In others […]

all is composed of Love … (08/16/11)

“Love is the substance of which I am made. It is a river that sweeps me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that rips me apart, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.” ~ Jorge Luis Borges
