Now That I Feel

Now That I Feel May 21, 2018

how little time there is, I’m

falling in love with everything:

the stranger whose name I’ll

never know, and the crow

pecking at the half bagel

she left for him.


Now that the walls I didn’t

know were walls have come

down, I want to care for

everything. And the sun

warming in all directions

without preference is

showing me how.


Today my heart aches,

not because something is

lacking, but because the love

I’ve carried all along is bursting

through all the gates of choice.


A Question to Walk With: In conversation with a loved one or friend, describe a time when you felt more love than you had an outlet to give. Discuss what you can do with all the excess love you feel.

This excerpt is from my book, The Way Under The Way: The Place of True Meeting, 2016 Nautilus Award Winner.
