Psalm 1 Redux — Carla Grosch-Miller, UK

Arising from the reading of Psalm 1… 

(Seventh Sunday after Easter, Year B; 16th Sunday after Pentecost, Year C)

 

Delight is born of discipline chosen.

Contentment grows with wisdom.

Deep listening leads

along a cairn-marked trail,

dew clinging to grass bent

by pilgrim feet.

 

The sky is blue here.

Birdsong lifts the head.

A cool breeze caresses the cheek.

Legs grow strong like tree trunks;

arms branch flexibly

and dance with the wind.

From each finger drips

a ripening fruit.

 

The water is fresh and clear;

the plain is broad.

Come.
