Guardians of prayer
Are so free inside
flying to You in messages
Asking for nothing
But you.

Someone mentioned to me that we are guardians

of the whole world

And everything that we guard

belongs to You
these songs for You, to You as space.


We  are the Guardians

and gardens of prayer,
caught in Your grace as you.

  • Meant to Be Here

    You are meant to be here. Have you ever heard this said? You are meant to be here. Lets say why. When people say it usually they mean there is a great big plan—or maybe even it is small, but you are meant to be here.  There is intention behind your hips, behind your ribs, your pulse, your lips. The mind of Him. And of here of which they speak of now. Right here. Here- here you are meant to be right in this moment wide, ready, open hearted. Raise your hand as if it is a prayer. I am here, fully here.

    You were born and given eagle's




    something soft, something big. 

    Something fluffy, something free,

    have you ever heard

    about the latent cells in the human heart waiting until some perfect time, a pre-determined time when all will sing?

    Are you ready, Song, to be heard?

    do you even care that you weren't before?



    "yes!" Because the song she sings

    will envelop you like eagle's wings.

    you are the child moses
    you are the river in red.
    the scared child is a myth
    the child within
    you are the child moses and
    will soon be free and dreamy
    follow him.
