"Wheels Turning Inward" is a is a rich collection of over fifty poems, following a poet’s mythic and spiritual journey that crosses easily onto the paths of many contemplative traditions. The artwork at the top of this page, is one image found in the Gordon Moore Memorial stain glass window at Trinity Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas, by the artist Kim Clark Renteria. The image of these three circles, is emblematic of both the Trinity and the title for this new collection of poetry now available from Friesen Press.

Snow Falling

it is easy to close my eyes
and to imagine

snow falling
carefully and silently
in the evening stillness

like lace from heaven
perfectly formed in symmetry
and balance

descending everywhere like
a soft wintry breath

that touches my face
and forehead, a whisper from god
lightly landing upon eyelid and lash

each single breath
followed with a kiss 
a grace given
a blessing even

a delight
warming my heart
