This summer, during Ordinary Time, we, at my church, have been thinking on Sabbath. Here is my Sabbath reflection from last Sunday, which was accompanied by this video.

To float is to
rest and to
in forces, unseen

as a leaf drifting
down a wild mountain stream
or a crow circling
on a rising wind;

as an ember rising
from a campfire
as a seed dancing
on a delightful breeze
or a reflection bouncing
on a still lake's surface

and I sometimes find
my sabbath rest
in floating
where the day may lead...
