Psaltery & Lyre

In which I discover

At my niece’s / dance recital, the fact / that she plays / both Krishna / & Krishna’s lover—


Heavenly Father, I make of myself /            an offering. My God—or demon, / / I don’t much care—let me call you /             Lord and obey.

A New Beginning

We're humbled and awed to announce that Psaltery & Lyre will not be closing its doors after all.

let’s esteem each other highly / in this moment: some who are steaming and serving / some refueling

Frogging It

Refers to unraveling something knitted— / taking the yarn and pulling and pulling

White Flower

Further on, hills with their wayward / rolling, and below, the white clover / pulls through the greening. / Momentary holy. Moist dirt.


At midday the light is the memory / of light—clipped grass, limbs of trees, your face, / all rinsed in a mild glow. 


There won't be / an answer / I understand.

Book Review: As Earth Without Water, by Katy Carl

One mark of many powerful stories of conversion is the role human love plays in the journey toward holiness.
