the edge of the divine

You know how every once in a while you do something and the little voice inside says,

‘There. That’s it. That’s why you’re here.’ …

and you get a warm glow in your heart because you know it’s true?

Do more of that ..

~Jacob Nordby

how will I lay my burdens down?

inquiry for today~ how will you carry your heart toward healing….

see the light

You arrived as a ripple of change emanating

from an original, unstoppable,


memory: a then made now,


entirely yourself; found now in the world,

now as creator of that world.

You were a signature written in sand

taken by the ocean and scattered


to another wave form, your disappearance

only made more beautiful


by the everyday arrival of a tide


where my voice can still join yours,

hungering for the fall of water,

so that walking the reflected sand,


I set myself to learn by your going,

knowing across death’s wide ocean,

the ultimate parallel to friendship.

~David Whyte
