Falling into this world

I lost my union with the Holy One

Naked and alone

Insecure and afraid

If only I could shed this fear and anxiety

like the snake its skin or the trees their leaves in the fall

If only I could slough off the what ifs and worse case scenarios

forming in my thoughts as I scan the perimeters of my life and those I care for

The One called Love came to me first in a thought and then a dream

When  I called his name the fear vanished and I was not alone

This One kept calling and calling and continues this day

restoring the union that was lost

Whenever the fear stalks in the night or confronts me in the day

if I but rest in the arms of this Love

I know I am clothed, safe and secure

Never alone, never abandoned

The circle complete again

We are Unresolved

A discordant note

A work in progress

Something still missing

Wet clay on the wheel

Longing to be complete

This is the time

Between times

When all is given

Yet  not all received

On our way

Moving forward


Stopping means sinking

Sinking means drowning

Inertia is not our friend

Lord have mercy

Pull us up again
