Be there in our dreams, Love,

hold us in our waking,

be close when we dance with joy

and when our hearts are aching.


Love, be in the gifts we give

and in those we receive,

be there when the white dove lights

and when he takes his leave.


Be there when the tide comes in

and when it’s flowing out,

Love be near us in our faith

and nearer when we doubt.


Be there when the moon is waxing,

stay close when it wanes,

Love, be in our song’s first measure

and its last refrain.

Wishing everyone a peaceful, hopeful, light-filled, New Year!

They say it’s coming

strong winds

unusual for June.

Large trees bursting

with foliage

are at risk.


They say his heart

was enlarged

(with generosity)

at risk

for a death

out of season.


Tomorrow when the storm hits

I will go outside

and stand among the trees.
