Empty

Letting Go January 6, 2017

I searched

and gathered

and carried

and tried

and learned

many things

in hope

of finding

and sharing

something that would

make some kind of

difference

or bring some kind

of relief.

And I found the deepest

kind of healing came

in setting it all down —

daring to show up

empty.

Nothing Left

Unsorted December 25, 2016

Without a solid sense

of a fragmented self

once held in place

by overthinking

and figuring out,

the pull was to seek out

quiet space

in which to transform

experience back into

prayer —

deeply honoring

all that was left

unresolved on the surface —

gently pointing

back to the space

within my heart

because there was

nothing left

to block the way.
