The Kingdom Within

                                              “Every kind of thing will be well.”
                                          the Lord said to Julian of Norwich

                                       The blue vessel waits

                                       Off shore these disquiet disorders
                                       Once calmed and somewhat placed

                                       A dock to step off
                                       Into His boat of grace
                                       Or rather 

                                       Into our boat  
                                       He gets in

                                       Ebbing always toward deeper water of love
                                       While silence wakes

                                       On the surface ripples of the kingdom

                                       The blue vessel waits.

                                  "The kingdom of heaven is within you" says the Lord.
