Primitive religion is not believed, it is danced!

Arthur Darby Nock

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
And only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.

Some mornings!

“The road to enlightenment is long and difficult, and you should try not to forget snacks and magazines.”
― Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith


some mornings
I wake
to sun shining
and birds singing
to the gripping gasping beauty
of God’s grandeur

to a calendar full of meaningful task
and the expectation of time
with people I enjoy

and my soul cries
“Geez Stephen”

roll over
and go back to sleep
