  1. This is absolutely lovely, Melanie. I especially enjoy the line, “festooned on the back of my eyelids.” :). Anyone who has ever done Centering Prayer will identify with this experience. Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Poetry and prayer, two of my favorite subjects! I have been practicing Centering Prayer for about 20 years, and love your poetic take on the experience of being with God in this way.
    This poem has brought me to your blog, and I look forward to reading more! Blessings, James

  3. Thank you, James, I’m delighted to make your acquaintance! Who are some of your favorite poets? Are there particular poetry forms and/or topics that you like to write about? I also have a free poetry and prayer newsletter that I send every other month, and my next one will actually go out this Sunday, June 27th (exploring the question, “what do medicine and words have in common?”). You are welcome to sign up for it if you’d like here, and regardless I am glad we can connect through our shared poetry and prayer interests: http://eepurl.com/hmZuVf


  4. Melanie,

    I found your wonderful poem via your newsletter on poetry and loved it! I also love the focus of your newsletter — “connecting curious people with prayer and poetry so we can find our true homes.”
    Thank you for your spirit of generosity, honesty and welcome both on your blog and in your newsletter, which is a rich resource for those who love poetry, prayer or simply those of us seeking the community of the curious-minded!”

  5. “Below the noise and babble…release.” YES! Wonderful advice for writers like me who must learn to truly “release” a book from our aspirations for it, knowing that God and only God can bring the increase.
