"A poem can capture a moment, / Zoom in on an instant in time / Otherwise lost in the ongoing rush / Of a life not experienced in rhyme." These poems can fortify your soul, help you see deeply into persons and the world, and be mindful of Sacred Presence in the supposedly mundane world. The poems zoom in to see evidence of the Sacred in nature; in the human healing journey from brokenness to wholeness. They lament the tragic results of humans setting themselves up as sacred or ultimate, and they contemplate the mystery of death as part of the soul's journey of transformation. Savor them, see something of what I see or even more, and be fascinated by the presence of the Sacred even in something like the way a house wren builds its nest. I focus in some poems on what the night reveals, but most of my poems are suffused with deep delight, contemplative wonder, and transformative joy--each in their own now autonomous way. They're free of me. Now over to you!
