The Sunday Creative - Nothing

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.
I will meet you there. ~Rumi, 1207-1273 AD
Would this field be the presence of nothing, for many a soul?
Without the guideposts of right and wrong where do we sit?
Who will tell us whither we goest and whether we sin
or whether we sit in the palm of grace.

I want to be in that field.
That field so full of grace that there need be no signposts
No markers or words to delineate
Only the idea that through faith we are made whole
Faith in God, man, or simply faith in life everlasting.

Perfect, whole and worthy
And welcome to sit and chat
Of nothing or everything
As the case may be.

Thank you for visiting my stab at The Sunday Creative, and today's prompt: Nothing.


  1. yes it is Beautiful!
    Thanks for sharing on my blog,

  2. bethany,

    I must say, you have been all over this! You were needing this {i think}--b/c you are rocking it!
    This is another one I need to print out and hang up...just to remind myself.

  3. I would like to sit in that field with you - there won't be any screaming kids, will there?? I look forward to reading your take on each Sunday's prompt.
    Well done, my multi-talented, CSS!

  4. Beautiful! That sounds absolutely wonderful! Great interpretation!


Put it right here, babe!
