'Living in the Breath' by Richard Nedervelt
While I was on vacation in Hawaii I wandered into a wonderful art gallery in Honolulu....
Richard worked there and during my visit he shared a poem with me that was inspired by Hawaii. He had just written it in his notebook and he read it out loud ...
I would like to share it with all of you.
Richard also features it on his new blog, Living in the Breath.

forgiven by myself,
and loved by the Beloved.
I stand on the land as if resting in the hand of the Creator,
and do nothing to the land I would not do to the Beloved.
Here in this moment,
I am like night and day sharing the Heavens.
In sharing my space,
my breath rises and falls,
like a deep breathe uttering,
