Poetry, including a chapter of blessings and prayers, a section of small, haiku-inspired poems, and an homage to Pulitzer Prize-winner poet Mary Oliver. The sound / of a bell / still reverberating. Or a blackbird / calling / from a corner / of a / field. Asking you / to wake / into this life / or inviting you / deeper / to one that waits. Either way / takes courage, / either way wants you / to be nothing / but that self that / is no self at all.
