Celtic Glory

Poetry

Poetry

The poems on this site are written in places or inspired by them,  where there was sustained Christian Celtic worship. Often described as ‘thin places’ where heaven and earth seem to meet easily, I’ve found this to be the case. My heart opens to God readily in these places and poem-prayers pour out, often expressing the deepest yearnings of my heart, some of which I’m not even aware of until I pray and write. But this is not just my journey. These poems are here to help you allow your heart to be opened to the mystery of God’s Spirit and the deepest longings which we all hold hidden within us.

My Father has Time for Me
In the cool of the day You draw me aside To walk To talk To be
In the Stillness
Stillness more profound More complete Even than peace Everything stills and slows
