“There is room for you here…”

Many wander, searching for a place to belong, without words to express their need or their fear. Let us be prepared to welcome them – remembering that we, too, joined this circle by taking the hand that reached for us.

The Well of Grief

Those who will not slip beneath
the still surface on the well of grief,
turning down through its black water
to the place we cannot breathe,
will never know the source from which we drink,
the secret water, cold and clear,
nor find in the darkness glimmering,
the small round coins,
thrown by those who wished for something else.

a friend who carries my story died this morning. Sudden, unexpected he is gone. I carry him into this quiet night, grateful for all we shared and sad for what is no more.
