Lectio Divina - The Wisdom Page

P a g e | 4Being a Personby William StaffordBe a person here. Stand by the river, invokethe owls. Invoke winter, then spring.Let any season that wants to come here make its owncall. After that sound goes away, wait.A slow bubble rises through the earthand begins to include sky, stars, all space,even the outracing, expanding thought.Come back and hear the little sound again.Suddenly this dream you are having matcheseveryone’s dream, and the result is the world.If a different call came there wouldn’t be anyworld, or you, or the river, or the owls callingHow you stand here is important. How youlisten for the next things to happen. How you breathe.Dr. Scott Simpson * dsimpson@tie.net * TIE Educational Specialist“Lectio Divina” 2011 AEPL Summer Conference, Estes Park, CO
