True prayer requires no word

True prayer requires no word, no chant
no gesture, no sound.
It is communion, calm and still
with our own godly Ground.

The light of splendor

The light of splendor shines in the middle of the night. Who can see it? A heart which has eyes and watches.

Unless you aren't there

God, whose love and joy
are present everywhere,
Can't come to visit you
unless you aren't there.

Born in me

Christ could be born a thousand times in Galilee -- but all in vain until he is born in me.
