Good Shepherd, You have a wild and crazy sheep in love with thorns and brambles. But please don’t get tired of looking for me! I know You won’t. For You have found me. All I have to do is stay found.

Merton, Thomas. A Book of Hours. Ave Maria Presss.


I seem to be on a Thomas Merton kick.  I’m sure I’ll return to Rilke before too long…with occasional side trips to Galway Kinnell, various scriptures and mystical poets, even an occasional poem of my own {blush}…  The thing is, I’m running out of words.
