Dark Moon Meditations, Part VI: RELEASING TO ABUNDANCE

It is hard work to carry

all these preparations
to keep track of littles
to be mindful of bigs
to not forget the middle
to make sure the edges fit
yet in grace it all falls together
making the job one of witness
making the effort to release
joy existing to be received
if the credit can be given
and the glory never owned

Dark Moon Meditations, Part V: Offering Sacrifices

Too long have I listened

confused and turned
by each passing tidbit
that might be learned
while ignoring the wisdom
evermore echoing within
Too long have I waited
tending to the past
planning for predictable
falling into old patterns
while allowing life to go
flowing by my expectations
