these days

nadine j. smet-weiss

when

your

heart

breaks

and everything

goes

dark

for a moment

that feels like

forever

and you wonder

whether this

is the end

or the beginning

trust the beginning

let your heart

remain open

let life touch you

more deeply

let love flow

more fully

let the unnameable mystery

renew you

don’t miss the opening

by nadine smet-weiss, spiritual director

in these days

of shutting down

what longing

is breaking open

in you

like seed

seeking light

urging you to be

the space for

some new form

of life in the world

resilience embedded

by nadine j. smet-weiss

spiritual director

sitting here with my breath i am reminded

of the heart at the heart of each being

infinitesimal spark of light

hidden in each and every form

unfolding through the eons

becoming unending

appears to falter

mystery moves

 spark ignites

anew

life

holy honest

i depend upon you to remind me

who i am at heart and to hold me

accountable for my actions

accountable for my words

from a place in your heart

that recognizes

community

calls us to

truth in

love
