New Poem - Unpublished - for 2013 collection

I have been listening silently
to the language of spirit

to a connection with this place
I chose to live and practice

It echoes deep within me
like ripples from a primal ocean

I forgot exists,
A wave set moving in darkness

by a pebble of Grace
acquired through stillness

that I might record through verse
the ordinary miracles

that surround us here
to hold gently to this

moment by moment awakening:

This is the place I belong

Body and soul
Atom upon atom
I belong as the falcon
I belong as the rocks
I belong as the mountains
I belong as the ocean:

Inner and outer have merged in marriage
My poems are our wedding song.
