I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord; “plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Cultivating

April 23, 2022

 

At the start of spring,

leaf-empty oak trees—

their profiles resting

on blue-dusky skies—

invite a lingering look

over their lines, their stillness.

They ask us to consider our

souls, exposed to this wide world,

and to make space for coming

birds and their nests,

to listen for the wind’s hum,

and to capture light

as it makes its way

down to our taproots.
