That Extraordinary Weight of My Heart —-Sunday, November 18, 2018

Sometimes there are things within seemingly ordinary days

That blaze forth into my heart, mind, and soul

Often times its something so tremendously common, yet so toweringly wonderful

They seem to blanket the earth, or the sky, whichever it may be

The commonplace whispers to me with throbbing messages of distant lands or new places to see

Sometimes it an amazing gift of wings in flight

Or grumbling clouds filled with streaks of light

But always, always whispering all around me in slow rhythmic  movements

Silently the every day of common things weigh wonderful upon my life.

From my world to your heart,

    • I thought it might be a woodpecker, but I wasn’t sure. By the time I got a photo it was flying away. If the bird had turned toward me I think I would have known if it were a woodpecker.


  1. One of my published books is subtitled ‘discovering the sacred in everyday life’ and that’s what comes to mind as I read this beautiful post. Thank you, it gives a lift to my heart.
