Reminder, by Josh Huber

You know the soul–deep core where the self’s 

water wells up : what matters most : rock 

that cannot be moved : touchstone : cornerstone : 

pearl too big to pluck : weave of light and dark : 

animating all-fire all throughout : 

spin and twirl of every scrap and spark : 

inexhaustible smoke : mess of bees 

at the body’s hive : where time circles back 

through the pulse of space : blown foil bit reflecting 

God : swoop in the being’s spoon : migrant mystic 

humming unspeakable songs–you know 

the soul: take it for a walk; sit a while 

and share its silence; whisper what you want 

to know: listen, listen. Listen.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
