Wonderful and Beyond

One thing after another

points to what is wonderful


And beyond the realm

of the everyday


It may be a sunrise

or vision so beautiful

It may be beyond

what any can say

It may be the silence

or the words so truthful

They disciple your heart-ache

on the spiritual way.

beyond JWH

Mysterious Consolation

We travelled

In the dark


Not knowing

Our ultimate destination


Yet within

Was something stronger


Faith in the meaning

And the purpose of action


And though there were times

Of silent desperation


God was the source

Of this mysterious consolation.
