from the book Beloved Spirit

Let the heart be drawn through

darkest held cares

to a field of peace

the Lord now prepares.

Set free the spirit from

captive ordeal

toward a realm of beauty

the stars reveal.

Discern in the daily

stabbings of pain

a gift that allows

fulfillment to reign.

Follow reflective

traces of belief

to chart a course beyond

earth’s lowly grief.

Achieve a foundation for

life’s greatest good,

build on the sorrow

the soul has withstood.

Flow into the world

of boundless creation,

and see the One’s

divine inspiration.
