this slow stream

Surrounded by change,
listen for a flower
of fire
remember to trust
the secret color
this slow stream

--lks 2011

This is from the haiku magnets.


  1. This is the type of place where I love to spend time. A whole afternoon, perhaps. "Surrounded by change," indeed. Thanks for the beauty.

  2. You're welcome. It's the Nantahala River, a favorite among rivers for me.

  3. Lovely, the woods and the photos. I remember paddling the Nantahala when I was in college and later crossing it when hiking the AT

  4. Glad you liked this. I've paddled it some but it's been awhile.

About Me

My photo
Georgia, United States
I live at the edge of the forest in a little town in the north Georgia mountains. I teach sixth grade Language Arts and am writing a memoir of sorts about family, spirituality, and narrative. I am also exploring a possible writing project having to do with contemporary lay contemplative experience and how it might be informed by the Desert Fathers and Mothers of early Christianity. I am a relatively recent convert to Roman Catholicism and an admirer of Pope Francis, Leonardo Boff, Joan Chittister, and Richard Rohr. I'm a Lay Associate of Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Monastery in Conyers, Georgia. I am interested in indigenous cultures, narratives, and spirituality, especially how these can inform my spirituality as a lay contemplative. I write, read, take pictures, play around with creating ephemera from paper and cloth and other organic things. I cook, hike, watch wildlife, and collect random bits of interesting oddness, both tangible and abstract. I am a seer of smallness and a caretaker of ridiculous minutiae.
