Wings


 

If you could sprout wings,
old wine barrel, where would you
flee from these shadows?

Cold hearts will be warmed,
seeking hope within these walls—

You are no mirage,

on this bright blue day.

Insomnia


 

When I cannot sleep,
holy ones draw near to me,
bearing words of life.

Children, come to Me—
love your neighbor as yourself—
do not be afraid.

Old Wall


 

Scarred by desert sun,
old wall greets weary pilgrims
when their journey’s done.

Like Candle Flame


 

Lady, let your life
leap in me like candle flame—
or a blazing sun.

I could not resist taking a photo of the Tibetan “Virgin” on the December page of my 2010 Amnesty International calendar:
 

 
Was it you I saw
in my dream last night, calling
forth new life in me?

If You Should Stumble…


 

If you should stumble
on your journey of faith, child,
I will steady you.

No Fun?


 

Should you turn crabby,
Blessed One, some would think faith
means having no fun!
