Harmony of the Whole

On my morning walk through the piñon forest surrounding my house I suddenly note a sharp pain in my knee. It is on the inner part just below my kneecap. I call on the Beloved and get the sense to adjust my gait so that I am not so forward. The pain eases enough so […]

How to Live Forever

“I want to be cremated and have my ashes spread near the creek on the Big Tesuque Trail in the Santa Fe Mountains.” On a sunny spring morning, I sit at my dining room table and write this in the will I am preparing. I think little of it. It is but a directive for […]

Road to Freedom

Let’s take the Mother Road, Tasting en route the sparking-fat diners the creaky court motels, where we’ll lay waste to the flesh, and carve our initials in the illusion of love, Knowing the real thing waits within ignited by our Friend, Who’s driving us Home.

I see a stunning scarlet poppy field backed by blue mountains, the beauty easing my being on a cold Monday morning. But then I look at the source of this image on my Facebook timeline and my sense of peace turns to ire. “How dare she post this with no credit to the photographer!” I […]

Be the Harmony You Want to See in the World

I sit in court on the witness stand while the opposition tries to discredit me. “In 2008, did you misread the well meter by thousands of gallons?” the opposing attorney asks. I call on the Beloved. “Yes,” I say. My foot bobs and my voice shakes, but I sit tall and hold my head high. […]

Before Your Gates

I heard this poem read more than a year ago and it has stayed with me. The other day I ran into the poet. Blessed timing. Before Your Gates At last, Beloved, this insurgent stands before Your gates, without a guard or chains. I bring no army; I make no demands. Blood-stained and battle-weary from […]

Own Your Power

Most every day I take a walk through the piñon-juniper forest surrounding my house. On today’s journey, I relish the quiet.
