If the Moon Came Out Only Once a Month: Reflection from LCWR

Published 6 July 2020

If the Moon Came Out Only Once a Month
'If the moon came out only once a month
people would appreciate it more. They’d mark it
in their datebooks, take a walk by moonlight, notice
how their bedroom window framed its silver smile...'

There We are in the World Together: Reflection from LCWR

First published 8 June 2020

We Are of a Tribe
'We plant seeds in the ground
And dreams in the sky,
Hoping that, someday, the roots of one
Will meet the upstretched limbs of the other.
It has not happened yet.
We share the sky, all of us, the whole world...
