Waking Together

What a delight to be with the 19 of us over five days. It was closing retreat for the second Fire & Water Cohort. It was at Hope Springs, near Peebles, Ohio.

It is no small thing to journey together, to return home to self, to wake together in deep connection and learning. It is no small thing to be held in initiatory path, to find the energetic center to hold each other in deep purpose.

On the last morning, I wrote these simple words, inspired by the freshness of the day and by the cumulation of experience with such good people.

For awakening. And for celebration.

Dew kisses the ground,
slowly drips from trees,
hanging momentous
in moment of morning light.

The quiet of the day
awakens with bird song.

These people kiss each other
and offer tender hugs of joy,
hanging momentous
in moment of morning light.

the quiet of the day
awakens with human song.
