Poems of the Week
Hold the silence like
a mother holds her child.
Hold your ground while
all around you structures
crumble into nothing.
Focus on the still point
in your center until you
are filled with light, until
Spirit speaks to you in
words you understand,
until the love in your
heart grows so strong,
it must be shared.

Surrender is Everything
“Surrender is everything,” he said
to me as we walked one foggy
evening on the lane.
I tried it, letting go, allowing truth
to swallow me whole, digest me, spit me
out again. I tried it, releasing my tight
grip on mind and what I thought my
world should look like. Life flowed
into me then, astonishingly fresh.
I came alive in ways I couldn’t have
guessed, experiencing life as if I was
a newly opened blossom.
“Yes,” I said the next night as we
walked. “Surrender is everything.”
