reflection, reverence



Experiencing the grace
which urges me to share.

Reaching out to touch
the hand of the creator.



Speaking for the mute of creation,
giving voice to the inanimate.

Seeking to make the ordinary
extraordinary.

Using the tools of time:
patience, curiosity,
concentrated awareness,
and focused attention,



I give the honor and glory to God,
and praise his holy name
for his marvelous works;
through recognition,
reflection, reverence,
and prayers filled 
with gratitude,
for the rhythm
of language,
for allowing 
this poem
to be 
born.
