Read an Excerpt

"I glanced up
at the stars
they were brilliant
sparkling
the moon was a sliver
I breathed out
and a heavy weight
was lifted off me
reflecting as I lay
in the middle of the cornfield
how do I ever get myself
in the middle
of such difficult situations?
my heart was sad
looking up
at the stars
realizing how I need
to slow down
not try to do everything
would try again
by being here
to see
what I could do differently
so my life
could reflect
the beauty of these fields
now the sun was out
another day
glancing in the distance
watching
a small group
make their way toward me
unusual for a sabbath
as I looked closer
saw it was the one
who healed
walking slowly with his friends
conversing
did not know
what to do
approach them?
or try to hide
among the corn stalks?
but I was tired
of hiding
always running from
any challenge"
