Surprised by Joy

roll-on-the-river

 ...with a tip of the hat to C.S. Lewis, John O'Donohue, and Thich Nhat Hanh  (I gratefully pick the fruit in their orchards.) 

how fluent the wind's voice
how fluid the river flow
no fussing round a tree
no stumbling over rocks

I want to be like...
the wind and the river!

tumbling forward
surprised by joy . . .
a benediction to find
an untamed God unfurled
