Rowing through
an ordinary week
with its infinite capacity
for random nonsense
and grittiness and glum weather,
what strikes me is not so much
the wear of everyday sticks & stones,
but, rather, the fact that one
clear, awesome moment of Light
can plunk itself into our day
quite without warning
and catch us by surprise.

Personal Growth and Metaphysics

For instance, perhaps you are
simply standing around
chatting with a fellow human being
and the next thing you know
-in one split second-
the person before you
turns out to be something more:
an angel in disguise.
In that moment, thinking stops.
A quick flash of divinity--
and there is no rhyme or reason for it;
it's just how things
sometimes arrange themselves.
Sudden starlight arrowing into the day
unheralded and unannounced.

Personal Growth and Metaphysics

After a glimpse like that
all you can do
is be silent and say thanks.
Experiences of that sort are
simply too large to speak about.
You know what I mean:
the wind can't fit into a teacup.

Personal Growth and Metaphysics

So there it is. There you are.
And when I look back at the week,
rolling it out quick like a carpet,
that's what I see, clear and stark
and sharper than everything else:
the encounter with a being of Light.
What else is worth remembering?

Personal Growth and Metaphysics

So I guess the rest of the week
can do whatever it wants to do:
I had the Moment.

Personal Growth and Metaphysics

Thank You, Lord.
