    Dreaming of Stones: Poems

    Today's Price £12.78



    Product Description

    The poems in Dreaming of Stones are about what endures: hope and desire, changing seasons, wild places, love, and the wisdom of mystics. Inspired by the poet's time living in Ireland these readings invite you into deeper ways of seeing the world. They have an incantational quality. Drawing on her commitment as a Benedictine oblate, the poems arise out of a practice of sitting in silence and lectio divina, in which life becomes the holy text.

    No stranger to poetry, Paintner's bestselling spirituality titles have often included poems. In this first exclusively poetic collection, she writes with a contemplative heart about kinship with nature, ancestral connections, intimacy, the landscape, the unfolding nature of time, and Christian mystics. It can be read for reflection to spark the heart and to offer solace and inspiration in difficult times. Breath
    This
    breathing
    in is a miracle,
    this breathing out, release,
    this breathing in a welcome to
    the unseen gifts which sustain me each
    moment, this breathing out a sweet sigh,
    a bow to my mortality, this breathing in
    a holy yes to life, this breathing out
    a sacred no to all that causes
    me to clench and grasp,
    this breathing in is a
    revelation, this
    breathing out,
    freedom.
