Allowancing

x

Should the

Spirit lead

Should an angel say

So that we rest into

Advice

From listening

x

Pointers of direction

For the way

This is a response from prayer

Or simple stillness

Being still

Into the world, into night

Into the quiet blue of day

x

Whatever time

To step outside

To step inside

Creation’s bands

The movement of the universe

Let it ride

For us

For a while

x

We rest within

We rest without

We try to listen with disinterest

(not un-interest)

For a while

x

If we get something

It’s a gift

Treat with care

Treat with confidence

Now get up

Carrying the lightness of a gift

Into the world again

Into time

(kairos into chronos)

Into hours of the day and night

Into chores

Into decisions

Into life

Into peace

Or needs be war

x

Not worrying a win

But plainly things are better

If no new rewards

Maybe a win for all

Doctrine Inside a Mask

Doctrine Inside a Mask

x

Grace is sufficient

It is miracle

It is salvation

x

It is surprise

Totally untimed

Kairos, never chronos

x

So what shall we have?

Salvation’s disguise

They seek it here

x

They seek it there

We have a

Pimpernel

x

A small, red flower

Maybe a Z against the wall

A bag of gold

x

Tossed through

My window by

Valentine or Robin Hood

x

Or with Meg

Atop the seeing stone

After cosmos-saving

x

Or while the saving

Happens (I doubt that

grace is averse to

en media res)

x

Stories for our souls,

Enough awareness

For our

x

Noticing in time

To say thank you

And our hero’s

Gone,

x

Because

Another rescue’s

Needed there

…Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me. That is why, for the sake of Christ, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.…

All Souls, a Poem

All Souls, a Poem

A remembrance of those who are far on
And yet, like Patrick’s breastplate, who
Are over and around us
Above, below, on either side

We are not alone this day; we are
Accompanied
By those whose earthly, counted time
Is done, who
Live in kairos now
Kairotic time, the time of God

Souls, the spirits
of un-never-lived, live
On, live now, live well
Until unmeasured time
Without measure
Ends
