Faith is the Bird

“Faith is the bird that feels the light when dawn is still dark.”

Rabindranath Tagore         

  

May the wings of faith awaken us

pouring hope

and love

into our hearts.

Every Walk Will Bring You Treasure

100_1053

Every walk will bring you treasure, heart ascending

to the clouds, every step will slow 

your breathing,

as your mind unfolds

your dreams lifting

beyond the pine trees and over

the mountains.

No prophet ever saw such beauty,

the mystery of

your soul.

Our Prayers from their Wings

100_1056.JPG

Even the hawks know, as they launch our prayers from their wings,

rivers run deep, in the lowest valleys,

running faster, and more beautiful

than ever before. And still waters

run a deeper quiet, bringing us

closer, awakening our spirits

to seek the river, and a hawk

to lift our prayers

from the earth to the sky.
