This Day


“Faith itself sometimes needs to be stripped of its social and historical encrustrations and returned to its first, churchless incarnation in the human heart.”

Christian Wiman


This day is for the

breathing in and breathing out

of solemn thoughts and steady prayer.

This day is for the

walking long and quiet on

the trail by which the

waters flow.

This day is for the

ever changing landscape of

the heart and mind allured in

nature’s unity.

I fell through the floor of my religion, out

into the sunlight of the present silence; out

into the vast darkness of night freedom.


One thought on “This Day

  1. There is no greater place to understand the works of god than out in God’s cathedral . Here God’s purpose is heard within every whisper or thunderous roar , felt within each gentle breeze or tortuous storm . Seen within the beauty of each delicate flower or in a streaming comet , And touches deep into the heart and soul of the ones who seek to stare and listen . Amen .
