These poems shine light on one individual's inner journey along the path of life. There is no "to-do" list here, just gentle pointings to what can be found when thinking ... stops.
We all have experienced this spaciousness from time to time, often while watching a beautiful sunset or a butterfly in flight. It is these ephemeral moments that these poems were born, and it the celebration of these moments that fire the imagination of both the poet and the reader.
Join the poet Spirit Finder on a physical and emotional journey to the heart of the moment, that magical place and time where the spirit lives. Her experiences reveal that these moments of grounded-ness-that many would describe as empty-are actually amazingly full.
... And I am entwined.
Impossible to disentangle,
from this That is me at its core.
My total attention,
and every breath is breathing for this.
This fire of purity and bliss.
-from "Deeper and Deeper It Pulls"
... No one noticed this holy man,
who came forward with his begging bowl outstretched.
She looked up at the man with dreadlocks,
numbed by the quiet of this renunciate in the crowd,
and found his silence deafening. ...
-from "The Sound of Silence"
