My Friends, The Rainbow

October 08, 2023
By Sister Mary Lou Schroeder, CSA

Violet-

Shadow's home

Wandering minstrel

Contemplative.

 Indigo-

Twilight glow

Herald of the moon

Responsible.

 Blue-

Crafter crystal

Solid soldier sentinel

Steady.

 Green-

Waving silk

Maid of refreshment

Sincere.

 Yellow-

Spun sunlight

Fairy on a beam

Delicate.

 Orange-

Gay holiday

Capering carnival clown

Crazy.

 Red-

Brilliant love

Lady of means

Lavish.

 

Ember

By Sister Mary Lou Schroeder, CSA

The magic of fire
   entrances my soul.
Flame tongues chant the challenge:
   Do what I do!
 
Make ash of dreams and life
   now spent.
Make light of hopes and vision
   to come.
Be ember, divine.

Silencio

January 22, 2023
By Sister Mary Lou Schroeder, CSA

My mind chatters
    like a squirrel in an elm.

My silly heart follows,
     wishing not to take the helm.

But nature has a message
      if I but quiet down:

"Do I hustle?" asks the oak--
     " I am sentinel to the sky."

"Am I rushing?" asks the lake--
      "I reflect as time goes by."

All of creation 
       joins in the song:

SIT     REST    SILENCE
       that you, too, may BE-long.
