Cascade Of Hearts


the one hundred year old
stone frog
worships at this alter

Seen From Above


heaven’s clouds recognize
the tiny speck
as the church’s steeple

We Gather In The Meadow


chairs circled
we worship in
the valley’s benevolence

Mountain Chime


weather is
the bell ringer
calling all to worship

Prayer Flags


the birch in worship
waving her prayer flags
for us

limbs raised in prayer
reflection of faith

Everything

the garden holds
life and death with
Buddha at the center

Between Trees

now that I’ve found you
every trail leads
to your wise counsel

Petal Prayers

pink petaled benediction
blessed the time and tending
of the garden’s enduring grace

Hallowing

outside the church window
the prayer and devotion
of snow

Vespers

long before eventide
leaves chant the prayers of trees
the request and praise of grace and gratitude
