full flower moon

i saw her tonight just as
she was topping the treeline
stopped me in my tracks, she did
and oh, how she did shine!
the full flower moon never lacks
for admirers or devotees
but strange as it sounds,
(and i know that it does!)
i think she took notice of me

call to worship

today, the paper wasps
invited me to worship
in their cathedral
i thought the rose window
was especially beautiful

when i think of you
i remember the moon
and make wishes
on all the stars
that my arms were longer

bearing witness

even the cells
of my body
are inscribed
with this
how can
i ignore
their witness
that i am made
for love
we are made
for love

earth wears her green vigour

o fire of the holy spirit
life of the life of every creature
holy are you in giving life to forms...
o boldest path,
penetrating into all places
in the heights, on earth
and in every abyss
you bring and bind all together
from you clouds flow, air flies,
rocks have their humours,
rivers spring forth from the waters
and earth wears her green vigour!
-hildegard of bingen (1098-1179)

on days when
a thousand voices
seem to clamour
for my attention
only one rises above,
your voice ringing
loud and clear
you are my beloved

a song of ascent

i wait for the lord
my soul, it does wait
and in your word
do i hope
my soul waits
for the lord
more than they
that watch
for the morning
yes, more than they
that watch
for the morning
(psalm 130: 5-6)

a holy invitation

i can only marvel
at this
holy invitation
to observe
your secret life
tell me...
from what
ancient golden sect
has your
sacred order sprung

am i diving
or soaring?
the waters
of this baptism
are disorienting
when the
heavens open
and the only thing
i can cling to
is your promise
that i will not
