WATER LEAVES       There are times when, unanticipated, a moment captures the spirit:

shadows cast upon a moss tinted fence…

the simple symbiotic union of grass and dirt supporting

an old red maple outside the window…

being in the presence of a child’s wonder…

looking across a pond painted with the stoke of

nature’s brush…

And in that sacred moment, we are visited by:

a peace…

a joy…

a thirst…

a longing to travel deeper,

          wanting to be deeper…

          a sense of being held tenderly, dearly…

yet offered freedom and invited to live intentionally our

“one wild and precious life”. *

Time is suspended… the Spirit stirs… and somewhere, from deep within, we hear, “welcome”…” *(Mary Oliver, The Summer Day)
