FEATURED POEM:

Song From the Road

Long on this journey
     Long in these shadows
Far from the only home
     Low all our hoping
Deep the undoing
     Just the forsaken road

Voices we dream of
     Echoes remember
We all together there
     Heaven was once
Our song to be singing
     Hearts’ every word
In wonder and joy

I am how your heart discovers
All the hopes that sleep in you
I am every silence calling
I am Fountain     I am Meadow
I am every secret door

Sing your ships into their harbors
Sing them bring them heal them home
Murmur every holy river
I am Harvest     I am Blossom
I am leaves around your soul

Come from the shadows, into the gleaming,
     Dawn of the day in us;
Open our lives to everything growing–
     How shall we say this grace?
World we are watching, world we are,
     Keep us in life with you.
How do we answer? How do we know?
     Love bring us closer. Mercy us home.

I am how your heart discovers
All the hopes that sleep in you
I am every silence calling
I am Fountain     I am Meadow
I am every secret door

Sing your ships into their harbors
Sing them bring them heal them home
Murmur every holy river
I am Harvest     I am Blossom
I am leaves around your soul
