Poems from "A Sail of Love"

Nancy Gibbs Richard
On Power (March 2013)
Inward Light
A God-space between us
There is a God-space between us
that holds a truth
larger than any of our own.
It is a challenge to be open
to that possibility,
to trust the Great Mystery
of the in-between-place
that can move us towards
forgiveness, reconciliation, home.

On Seas of Grief
On seas of grief
my boat and I
weather storms
of terrible sorrow
with a small
steadying sail of love.

The Keys to the Kingdom
The Keys to the Kingdom
are in the kitchen drawer
with all the stuff
of everyday life.
Poetry Mysticism forgiveness Reconciliation Kingdom of God
