Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

(last Sunday at Common Table, we were invited to visit some great prayer stations, one of which asked us to do some contemplative prayer and meditation.  this is where I found myself.)

this house is an abbey
a cell, a crucible
a refuge from,
and an exposure to,
the hardest parts of life

a place to toil and sweat
to engage my back and my grit
my gifts and my art
my love and my passion
to be strong and weak

dwelling in a place
of flickering light
to create a pocket of nurture
where three seeds grow
into the fulness of God’s dreams
