Between the trees I see

photo of forest during daytime

There’s an inner life

that gives shape to my exterior,

prompting me to carve out time

spent quietly in a soothing

tree-rich nature sanctuary, full of paths

that loop back, ensure you don’t

get lost in anything other

than thought; help you dwell

on what you came for,

what is essential, worth the retreat.

this poem about solitude, about how we find ‘where we are’ and what’s going on – in the midst of how we are being formed, in our travels towards peace with God, and in many ways, holiness – is from my new book Quiet Waters
