About Me

My photo

I write, mostly to keep my head from exploding. It threatens to do that a lot. My blog is the pixelated version of all the voices in my head. I tend to dive into what connects me to God, my community, my family and my doubt. I do a lot of searching, not as much finding. I’m good with that. I have learned, finally, to live comfortably in the gray. In the meantime, I wrestle with God, and my doubt and my joy.

God Drunk

God-drunk, and reeling
Falling up
Filled with fire
     with light
          with breath.


Shattered and remade

fractured with light, 

with fire
and flooded with God.
Drunk with God, and reeling,
Touching stars
     tasting fire
          free falling


          Empty

Emptied and flooded together
drunk and reeling
and filled with God

and filled 
with an agony of light,
a ceaseless glory
burning into emptiness
to be filled and flooded
and falling and again (again)


and again
falling


and again 

flooded 

and again
filled


and again


and again
a ceaseless agony of glory
     an eternal fire
          an everlasting sacrifice.
