Haunting

 

Ghost Trees

 

“Like an ethereal presence
You hang out everywhere.
Not a naughty or scary goblin,
Rather, an inquisitive observer,
A concerned, caring custodian,
Visiting every niche and closet
Where we stuff the undesired
Of our messy, blemished lives,
You haunt territories we ignore,
Hoping we will find you there.”

—Joyce Rupp, “Fragments of your Ancient Name”, October 8, Sorin Books

Unsolid Ground

 

searching for solidity
wanting to be rooted in something deep
wanting nourishment
as a young babe searches for milk
instinctively rooting
sometimes life’s storms erodes the soil of our garden
and we have to live on the edge of unsolid ground
roots dangling in the air
perhaps so we have a chance to re-examine what we were rooted in
was it the soil of eternity
were the roots deep enough
was it real
