Look, the trees
are turning
their own bodies
into pillars
of light,
are giving off the rich
fragrance of cinnamon
and fulfillment…
 
Mary Oliver, In Blackwater Woods
 
In Praise of the Earth
Let us remember within us
The ancient clay,
Holding the memory of seasons,
The passion of the wind,
The fluency of water,
The warmth of fire,
The quiver-touch of the sun
And shadowed sureness of the moon.
 
That we may awaken,
To live to the full
The dream of the Earth
Who chose us to emerge
And incarnate its hidden night
In mind, spirit, and light.
 
~ John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us
 
It is the season of autumn,
the season of Creation. 
Come for a contemplative evening 
of song, poetry, and silence.
All are welcome.
