In Heaven's Presence

We are surrounded
by light,
and blinding--
beauty unsurpassed.
Our hearts leap within us
at last
with those long forgotten
who'd drifted down the still waters
of our pasts.
Our spirits soar together,
unable to fully encompass
the Love
that surrounds us,
and unending,
all turning towards the same God.

Water's Coming Out of the Sky

The dog greets me
and trots outside.

Water's coming out of the sky.

She wags her tail
and doesn't know why.

She sees the water
coming out of the sky.

She turns around
and goes inside

because water's coming out of the sky.

At the Grotto

Orange butterfly
alights on purple flower--
prays with Bernadette.
