Featured Poetry: Far From Home

A thousand crickets’ harmonious song

breaks the nights’ deep silence.

My loved ones far away

can not know my loneliness.

Open windows beg for companionship,

the cold wind my only visitor.

Featured Poetry: Order

Build your life brick upon brick.

Live a life of truth,

And you will look back on a life of truth.

Live a life of fantasy,

And you will look back on delusion.

Featured Poetry: The Sacraments

I once spoke to my friend, an old squirrel, about the Sacraments –

he got so excited

and ran into a hollow in his tree and came

back holding some acorns, an owl feather,

and a ribbon he had found.

And I just smiled and said, “Yes, dear,

you understand:

everything imparts

His grace.”

(Francis of Assisi – taken from Love Poems From God by Daniel Ladinsky)

“Just love.”
