Day 1, 1/1/2014

Gazing at the tree tops through the skylight
on this first day of the new year
Wondering what might happen for better or worse
among the daughters and sons
of mother earth and father sky.

There is a Pope Francis now whose words are loving and true. 
A pope who patterns himself on the Christ he follows. 
This is a significant change and rarity
among those who have name recognition in the world.
It is a healthy sign in a suffering world.

There are signs of transformation when we look for them. 
The holy spirit of life inspiring human hearts and minds 
turning us away from the path of violence and destruction,
setting our feet on the ground of being
inclining  us toward healing, wholeness and peace.

We are in the time
where those who seek to know their true nature
discover what Love intends and live it.

We are in the time when evil does not hide
but parades about as worldly wisdom,
gloating in its power over the community of life. 
Yet even as its power seems complete,
there arises within life’s wounded suffering body
the healing spirit of the holy ones.

Though evil slaughters the innocent and faithful
burying the truth with lies and covering itself with blood and glory
it shall fall and prostrate itself at the feet of Love
and be transformed into what Love intends.

We are at heaven’s gate
streaming into a new creation without borders or boundaries
set free by a love we glimpse in signs and miracles
among the daughters and sons

of mother earth and father sky.
