Language as prayer

Language exists because nothing exists between those who express themselves.
All language is therefore a language of prayer.
Held in the dark, without sleep. —


Quote: Lynn Xu, from “Say You Will Die For Me,” Debts and Lessons.( Omnidawn; 1 edition, April 1, 2013)

thank you, The Vale of Soul Making

Every morning

That’s the big question,
the one the world throws at you every morning.
“Here you are, alive.
Would you like to make a comment?” –

For the sake of all

The air is charged with anticipation. This call to awareness certainly seems personal as the cold of winter often draws us inward. There is attention to the pace of life, re-setting our movement with the day as we look for hints of what is to come. Yes, this reminder to be alert stirs within each of us but it is a stirring we share. We stay alert so that when the gift of love and grace arrives it can be announced throughout creation.
We take our post to watch for the sake of all.

Into the peace of wild things…

 

I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief…
For a time I rest in the grace of the world,
and am free.
