“Spiritual Activism”

“When I understood

I fell to the floor

And then the floor cracked open

… and took me under

And into a place

Nearly too dark to tell

Except there was some light

A friend said ‘Breathe!

And that was the only Truth I could see

It was good enough

Until I found Calm

And Calm found me


Then laughter, children, trees and rain

For even as dark storm clouds gather,
