Sundays and Soul Food….


True soul food  takes us back to the days of our childhood. We were tempted by the smell of collard greens, chicken frying, and boiled potatoes. We played, we laughed, we reconnected with what really mattered; family! Soul food is about the love that we felt then and the good feelings those memories create now.  In this way, true soul food is much more than a meal. True soul food touches our hearts and transcends time.

  1. A Morning Offering.

    I bless the night that nourished my heart
    To set the ghosts of longing free
    Into the flow and figure of dream
    That went to harvest from the dark
    Bread for the hunger no one sees.

    All that is eternal in me
    Welcomes the wonder of this day,
    The field of brightness it creates
    Offering time for each thing
    To arise and illuminate.

    I place on the altar of dawn:
    The quiet loyalty of breath,
    The tent of thought where I shelter,
    Waves of desire I am shore to
    And all beauty drawn to the eye.

    May my mind come alive today
    To the invisible geography
    That invites me to new frontiers,
    To break the dead shell of yesterdays,
    To risk being disturbed and changed.

    May I have the courage today
    To live the life that I would love,
    To postpone my dream no longer
    But do at last what I came here for
    And waste my heart on fear no more.
