DO NOT STOP
George Wahl is a wonderful soft-spoken man and his poetry is steeped with a deep spirituality. He was a good friend of Fr. Charles Brandt and a member of the hermitage meditation group. He he continues to assist at the hermitage with the new contemplative, Karen Nicol. Recently he said “I miss the man.” Thank you George. We all do!

do not stop
until you achieve what you have been seeking
the pressure to pull you away will only grow stronger as you grow closer
mind will try to wear the clothes of the one you seek so that you don’t succeed
the reward lies in the struggle
each has been given the inner power to overcome
rise up and be…
the power of realization
the power of determination
the power of a love founded in a knowing that all is one
will lift you back on your feet again and again
listen to the drum beat
listen to the endless rain of remembrance
returning you to your destiny in this life
This is beautiful, Bruce. Thank you for sharing, and for another wonderful introduction. Be well.
Yes… George’s poetry is so beautiful, and your very welcome, May all be well.
Thanks for sharing, Bruce 🙂
Kind words Bruce. This morning I listened to the call of a solitary Roosevelt Elk followed by a crescendo of Pacific Loons and the hoot of an owl about an hour before sunrise. Such beautiful nighttime sounds just before the morning din of road traffic. Nature’s call for us to wake up.
Hi George. I have never hear a call of a Roosevelt Elk…. often hear a loon or two here at the lake… only a few. This time of year it as if the wildlife re-appears like magic
