"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.

the thing about gravity

the thing about gravity

as we all know so well

is that it grounds us to earth

as an absolute truth

just ask newton

who was knocked on the head

and who dropped an apple

time and time again in wonder

and yet

the bright spaces within us

the places already

filled with God's light

and the clear transparent air we

breathe, calls to us each

calls us in spirit

to stretch out widely

to spread our wings

and take flight

from morning till night

until we rest from our labors

even our dreams

are lessons in flying

feeding flights of

our imaginations

you may not think so

but we are meant to

fly and fly and fly

and fly again and again

beyond all possible

worlds and realities

yes, we are meant to fly


Go   Go   Go

and spread your wings

take flight

into the highest heavens
