advent journey – desire’s flickering

I’m really excited to read an excellent review of Bonnie Thurston’s new collection Practicing Silence in Fairacres Chronicle.

I have long appreciated Bonnie’s poetry.  It speaks beautifully and sparely of nature, prayer, love, absence.

The review quotes from Late Vocation

Her challenge to us is

to dispose

of the extraneous

to focus desire’s flickering

until it flames

at the incendiary point

of an undivided heart

That’s a good lot to meditate upon this Advent.
