Monday Spiritual Ruminations: Evensong

I leave my loom and step outdoors

into the fading sunlight,

birds offering their evensong

their hymn of praise

for a day well lived

and fair and green of grass,

bursting with promises of

more warmth

and days that go ever on.

the quiet of the early eve settles now

and lamps are lit

as bikers and striders

hurry into the last lap of the day.

I return to my loom

my soul at peace

taking its rest

and exhaling

an evensong.

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
