You see

Cloistered in my own heart
I have walked away home
solitude my company
alone in Thee alone
stillness my way of working
silence my listening tone

You see

I see You
through my window
amongst the green glade
one leaf among the many
glistening in the sun
dancing in the breeze

Yes perhaps You
are only a dew drop
but still Thee
Three only one
to me

You see

You walk in
the hearts of some
who open the door
and lay a cross
at the threshold

You see

Still Good

It is raining outside. Inside it is dark except for a candle and the light of my eReader. The Silence is good. The Solitude is Good. You and I Jesus are good. Is this what is meant when she said ‘…all is well and all will be well.’ This Solitary Life is for me. It is the Way of me. Typical of me, I feel a little guilty, being so Blessed. However, I will not because It is the Love of God towards me and there is nothing wrong with that. I hear the echoes of….’and God saw that it was good.’

Leaving them loved
he said these words

To know Jesus
you live Jesus
simple
pure
following
honest
open
willing

So on the beach
they prayed an cried
said goodbye
cried and prayed
pleaded he would stay

But just like Jesus
in his days of skin and bone
crying and praying
con carne playing
the obvious mystery
opening the Way

He let them go
walked down the beach
up the gang plank
onto the ship
following on again
in the footsteps of The Master

Passage (As the Way opens)

Once upon a sinner’s season
I kneeled for a one-way ticket
stamped and paid for travel
years ago I don’t remember when
wanting some needed journey
beholding someone who beckoned
but suppose now it was for following You
my place of full destination

As the Way opens

Here I am
an adam of the earth
a groundling of the ground
a dusty man dusting
where it is I do my work
live my living
pray faithfully my praying
as the birds pick, peck and praise their proclamation
as the windowsill cat mimes, meows and muses his belonging
I am thankful for my calling
here and now
everywhere and forever

As the Way opens

I pray that heaven’s
eternal now
will be like
this ground I am walking
this air I am breathing
this someone who
I am living for following You
my place of full destination

By And By

All the birds in the trees
that sing their heaven song above
full of hope in their harmony
and sometimes not
and it will
when listening is sung
and singing is heard
a soulful song will breath
of sweet delightful surrender
that sways the trees
from which these angels sing
and we will be all sung up
in the sky and on the sly
by and by

Confounded mostly wise
I Am
some of the time
stretching myself until
I reach Thou not enough

I Am
called for this
Thou only thing that
I Am
I know for sure

You who can
be only recognized
is why not
I Am
Thou are That
but instead
Be Thou Me

It is my cross
I Am
Far from it
to You that
I Am
the point virgin
of intended expectation

To sleep on
I Am
To mumble through
The night until
I Am
awake to Morning Prayer

Where I will find
I Am
confounded mostly wise to
Be Thou Me
