Meditation at San Damiano

Standard

San Damiano retreat Center[2]

dark veins fill my sight
lying dendrites firing doubt
through my fragile faith,

complication
denying all escape

but as these steps rise up the steep hill
and converge into the unseen sky

I climb
to my blue redemption,

simple
and free.

  1. There was a feeling of blessed lightness as the poem ended. This is why we need to enter the natural world. This is the place where the presence of the Higher Power is most powerfully felt and understood.
    The flow of this piece moved just right, for me.
