morning storm

bright smudge in slate clouds
violence on the mountain
morning of the storm.

"... it is the unaccepted self that stands in my way
and will continue to do so as long as it is not accepted. "
Thomas Merton, A Search for Solitude.

of my sullied worth,  
beaten down, degraded 
to my basic earth, 

you gaze on me,  
and I see a new light.
My face grows brilliant
in your radiant sight.

You find in me
what I cannot see,
and teach me
to love

Monument Valley

Lifeless distant plains
Jagged peaks, red sky rising
God’s fire, frozen

after the storm

clean and fresh
and puddle-full,
my soul shines,
full of hope

for resurrection
filled to full!
