The Center of the Edge   2 comments

Here I am standing on the edge of this present moment

At the precipice of here and now

Tempted by tomorrow

Muscles strain to maintain motionless in this place

All might it takes sometimes to merely be at peace and trust

The yet undiscovered treasures of this very moment

Vision clears to realize

All that is worthwhile

I take a breath

Thank God for this

To linger while I smile



Let There Be Light   1 comment

Black and white gives me a greater sense of the power of light … and the power of light gives me a greater knowledge of the power of God … and the power of Love that is, where ever I choose to find it …

Whether abound or abased 

You dear God are there to raise us up

And in all things and in all ways 

You have made all things beautiful



Advent’s Light Beyond the Darkness   Leave a comment

Oh Morning Sun, shine upon this soul

Rise up, abort the lingering shadows

Exchanging light with hope

Refine the ragged edges of my faith

Or cast your shadow long

That I might have a path to follow

To search You out beyond the darkness

 As one drowning

Desperate to surface

Your light, my life

Your love, the air I need to breathe

May I embrace the day, though suffering

To know there is an end

Reach out to save this soul

Sunken deep in hibernation

Where oh God is our connection

Is this the shadow time of waiting

To ponder what comes next

Anticipating and remembering

Your Son once born to earth?

Please revive within this soul

Christ Jesus’ love and spirit

New life, to give it purpose

In my earlier days as a photographer one of my mentors taught me that color can distract the eye from the design and the linear structure of the photograph – It is evident here in a flower where I’d expect it to be all about the color.  That is, I believe, why we say, “God is in the details” – and the color – sometimes is just for the pure majesty of it all ;0) because God can, and because God is, endlessly majestic –
