Lux In Tenebris Lucet: Friday, December 2
Day 5 of our 28-day Advent journey of mini-dispatches to give you pause and light.
Wild birds do glide
Tattered smoke fades
Embers in the pipe
Blood of the king
Daughter of the stars
“The wind’s travellers’ tales tease the tops of the trees
the ships have all sailed to the mouth of the sea…
The spider spins
Hands draw us in
—Bruce Cockburn from his song “High Winds, White Sky”
Listen to Bruce perform the song HERE.
“Since I learned how to love you, the door of my soul has been left wide open to the winds of the four directions. Reality calls for change. The fruit of awareness is always ripe, and the door can never be closed again.”
—Thich Nhat Hanh, The Heart of the Buddha’s Teachings
