Fidelity

keep to the simple
true to humility
and joy in things true to
their nature fulfilled
in promise and
fidelity unbroken to
loyalty and commitment

avoid pretense fashoioned
beyond means
honor those who
know honesty in
conviction though vow
be challenged but unbroken.

          ~ David Sermersheim

 

 

 GOD IS...

God is the violet-colored crocus
gilded in crystal dew-drops
dappled in thin sunlight
springing,
bursting forth
like a new Day--

God is the scudding clouds
bursting        forth
from a radiant blue sky-
light, fluffy, airy--

Resurrection
is the baby bird struggling
to fly-
slowly,
then away

          ~ Marion Da Silva

 

 

 

 


 
            How Faith Ripens

Sometimes it takes a ropoe breaking
at the edge of history, long encounters
with silence and occasionally lunch

with the devil. A failure or two paved 
with good intentions will get it there.
The primal pains of surgery and disease

work both ways. Faith can sometimes 
be dumped as easily as a bedpan. It can
also be spun from the urges of survival

and the good wishes people release like
small birds into our lives. A night filled
with fireflies will do it for me. I can

catch the scent of God lifting from their
little lights. Even the hounds of heaven
are calmed by such things. Faith ripens

best in its own due season. It does it one
heart and one mind at a time and always
for the most unexpected of reasons.

Spring Wind

Watching daffodils
shyly opening petals
in a chilly spring gale,
learning the human spirit
can nurture even
a tendril of hope.
 
                ~ Susan Landon
