A Small Sanctuary
Print this poem only


This room a sanctuary where we meet

if I but pause a while and stay,

put away pretense and conceit,

open my mind, let plans fly away


if I speak from the heart,

plainly share what troubles me,

tell what’s pulling me apart,

ask you where you want me to be


soon your breath joins with mine

your whispers are a gentle force

you speak the trace of your design,

a thin golden strand to the Source.


These moments in this sacred place

these conversations suffuse my soul

with spirit, light and grace.

Father, thank you for making me whole.


Author's Note: This poem is dedicated to my good friend and medicine woman, Joanna Jacobus who guided me on a significant part of my spiritual journey. Thank you Joanna.
