"Listen carefully, child, to the master's instructions, and attend to them with the ear of your heart" Prologue, Rule of Benedict

Listen!
Sit back
on the heels of your mind
take time
slowly
calmly

let thoughts
string themselves together
click
click
click

slip them
through
mindful fingers
leading you to
connection
union
joining

a new creation
tickle whispering
its birthening possibilities
on your heart's ear...
what
might
yes
mean?

Jaime R. Gjerdingen

poem inspired by Fr. Stanislaus Maudlin, O.S.B. "Wisdom of the Benedictine Elders" by Mark W. McGinnis; and the Prologue of the Rule of Benedict.
