Weeds, 4. Roadside rest


Weary of the numerous cars, 

traveling both directions.

Wishing for a stream,

cool and shady from

the day’s hot, sticky

weather and bustle.

Leaning on the rail of

fencing to prevent snow 

in other seasons from drifting.

Listening to birds in far off woods, 

their familiar calls and songs.

Swooping from tall trees,

from branches to limbs

sending peaceful vibes.

Breathing the aroma of

fields, flowers, weeds.

Singing a message to all.

Slow your pace and 

follow the way

back to simple


in time.

Additional words for a Sunday

given by Frederick Buechner:

“Faith is better understood as a verb

than as a noun, as a process than as

a possession. It is an on-again-

off-again rather than 


Faith is not being sure 

where you’re going, 

but going anyway.

A journey without maps.

As theologian Paul Tillich said,

” ‘Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith;

It is an element of faith.’ “

Where are you going?

Which way do you plan to head?

Will you be in the wild blue yonder?

Am I chasing you or are you

turning around for me?

Doesn’t take much to

confuse me!

Not following the map,
going “off the grid” and
in my own direction.

Sun setting in distance

Gray, blue streaks

Big splashes of Puffs

of clouds.

Pastels above,

Deeper colors


the spaces,


and distances

we all pass through

whether in




or Virtual reality.
