A Deeper Sense of Living


Early morning. Cold. Quiet.                                                                                                                   The silent expression of autumn.                                                                                         Squirrels, birds, and my dog still asleep.                                                                                     All  deep considerations.                                                                                                                       I know that there is a converging point                                                                                         that ties up  everything together,                                                                                                     both the sacred and the mundane.                                                                                               And with a reconciling heart I wait in humility.                                                                           In the fullness of time, it will appear and                                                                         something extraordinary will happen.                                                                                             In that very moment, something that is not common                                                                 will give birth to delight.
