Monk##039;s Prayer:
At the monastic center
is always a cloister
an orchestrated emptiness,
a place of light,
a fountain to feed
the heart##039;s garden.

Give me this life:
a center empty
of all but light,
the stillness of Eden
before fruit was plucked,
my heart a spring
of living water.
— Bonnie Thurston
