Some nights stay up until dawn
as the moon sometimes does for the sun.
Be a full bucket, pulled up the dark way of a well
then lifted out into the light.
Something opens our wings,
something makes boredom and hurt disappear.
Someone fills the cup in front of us,
we taste only sacredness.

Prayer is like watching for the Kingfisher.
All you can do is
Be where he is likely to appear, and
Often, nothing much happens;
There is space, silence and
No visible sign, only the
Knowledge that he's been there
And may come again.
Seeing or not seeing cease to matter,
You have been prepared.
But when you've almost stopped
Expecting it, a flash of brightness
Gives encouragement.

So how dld my 'klngflsher' show ltself ln lts lnlmltuble flush of electrlc

Compassion is what connects all things and
