Autumn Glow

light of grace
creating beauty
through the brokenness
through the pain
through the woundedness

new freedom

“I feel strange power, bearing fruit and gaining strength to give myself to me. I sense the seed maturing and expectation, light-filled, weaving within me on my selfhood’s power.”

The 1st line of this chant is attributed to Oregon Women’s Land Community. I’m not sure who added the 2nd-3rd lines. I heard it on a Native American Chant CD. Sometimes we sing this chant at a Taize gathering in my home.

A friend of mine shared a Youtube video about a winged migration, with music by Nick Cave. I am touched by the beauty, focus, determination and grace of these geese..
