Spring

You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep spring from coming.

To welcome Spring


“When spring came, even the false spring,
there were no problems except where to be happiest.”

Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Spring Is Coming…

A Speed of Soul Thought

Yes, Spring is coming.
But before the buds,
Before the blooms,
In the clean, clear grey light,
The world vibrates
With muddy possibility.
May I be content to be now
To drink in the almost and soon
Here in the beautiful not yet.

the sliver moon

20130313-043121.jpg

The sliver moon of March has caught my attention for many years. This evening the sunset lingered past 8pm offering the promise of spring’s arrival. And so in the darkening, warm blue sky this moon appeared above the nearest mountain outside my window.
It is visible and yet the temptation to ever-so-lightly squint is hard to resist. The thin arch shaped like a half bowl seems to be waiting to receive dreams and hopes in need of assured safety. Very different from it presence in the weeks to follow – the sliver moon appears peaceful and still.
March’s showing of the moon in the early days of its cycle continues to invite my dreams and hopes, whether old or new. It is a reminder of the light my spirit reflects. In its own cycle, there are times to share this light with all of its brightness and times when its warm and muted glow offers just enough.
Thankfully creation is always near to join us on life’s journey. As companion or guide, we are surrounded by the beauty of God’s great earth. And through it we are encouraged to appreciate its gifts and emulate its inspiration.

I share with you this piece of music sung, by Anna Hernandez and Ruth Cunningham. Both gifted with the grace to share light’s inspiration.
