Let Thy Light Enter My Soul …

by Bhagirath Majmudar

Starting its journey from Beyond Eternity,
Lighting up the stars, the moon and the Sun,
Traveling through many a Light Year,
Let Thy Light finally meet my eyes,
And enter my soul …..

The White Deer

by Justine Mara Andersen

Why, red cardinal, do you stare silently from the tangles
Of dirt and roots that tell of how the mighty fall?
Are you silenced by what I have seen this morning,
Or is silence the only song that speaks of all we know?

Four Contemplations

by Peter Venable

within my screen-in back porch—
a bright-billed Cardinal fed
her chirping and chirping juvenile chick,
who zoomed after her into a spruce.

Four Poems

by Aradhita Chattopadhyaya

The King and The Kid
(Janaka and Ashtavakra)

It was dark a night, with light very dim,
There was a boy with light within him.
The king was in dark, when he reached the kid
The king was the king of the world indeed.

Holy Mary, Pray for Us

by Archarya Swami Lotus

Sixty years ago, a litany to Mary and a fifty-four day Novena were the only things bringing solace to a desperate teen. When both unexpectedly made a re-appearance last fall I was, rather than desperate, full to the brim with grace and gratitude. It seems the prayers took a long time to ripen, but ripen they did.

The Highest Ideal

by Nalini (Edith Tipple)

I can hear him now,
my small and loving but fiery Bengali guru,
raising his voice for unequivocal direction:
“Keep your mind on your highest Ideal!”
