eagle’s flight – For a New Beginning – 1/4/16

It’s not been my custom to share other poet’s work in this way, but this poem is wonderful. I find myself in a space between things. I’ve put some older things down (like a job, changes in our family, kids … Continue reading

eagle’s flight – Drawn in – 1/15/15

I’m in the process of reading through the book “Mansions of the Heart” by John Ashcroft. It’s a modern rendition of Teresa of Avila’s “Interior Castle” and St. John of the Cross’ “Dark Night of the Soul”. A small group of 3 of us have been having dinner together on Thursdays and talking about it, seeing where it resonates, and how we respond to Ashcroft’s comments. It’s been quite enjoyable to engage in such conversations each week. Here’s my take on the seven mansions which are stages in the spiritual journey, sometimes re-visited, each one never completely explored.

Warning – I’m using a bit more Christian specific language than I usually do. Replace “Christ” with “Love” or “The Word” if it’s easier for you. And on the “Holy 3” i.e. the “Trinity” … you’re on your own.

Let me know what strikes you. Continue reading

And sometimes, these explorations resonate beyond myself and I delight in hearing where they have touched others. Continue reading

eagle’s flight – Speak to Me – no forgetting – 10/16/14

Several of the paintings and sculptures struck me in different ways as I stood before them and let them speak to me. I wrote down what I felt as I wandered through one of the paintings. I’d love to go back and see what other conversations await me there. Continue reading

Poems are often best read out loud. Try it with this one. I guess it’s just that noone’s listening I guess it’s just that noone’s listening as I speak in poem or song and wonder why I’m not being heard … Continue reading
