The Dark Embrace

Being drawn away

From the visible world


Was an anguish

As the mind loosened


Its grip

On illusory facts


And flew instead

Like a spirit


Into the dark

Embrace of God.


Inspired by the writing of Thomas Merton


The Universe Gathers


The blue sky

Worships you


The clouds

Sing and dance


The sun

And the moon



And bow down


And the universe



In one

Vast congregation


To ponder

The living word.
