The days draw us to this day and asks if we are ready?
I wonder why you brought me
to these splintering days,
this age of earth-death
and default extinction
and the smothering of constellations,
nostalgia claws at me
screaming send me back,
then I sense a fire that doesn’t consume,
a cloud of breath-taking holiness
passing across the face of a mountain
and it says
I put you here to see,
to see and hear and feel
I needed someone whose heart would break,
who would fall to their knees
Gideon Heugh, from Devastating Beauty
A voice for our time, knowing when to be quiet and sit in the shadows – accompanying those who mourn – yet, is also prepared to learn the new song that the world is waiting to hear.
Are we ready?
This day – 11th September 2021.
This week has been an unexpected exploration of time and shadows. It has caught me by surprise. Yet, it makes sense at the week’s end, and I appreciate all those who joined in the conversation. Thank you.
