in the wild — Guest Post Erice Carolyn Fairbrother, Aotearoa New Zealand

It is always a gift to have Erice’s poetry. and thanks as well to the remarkable photography of a tui, a bird with two voiceboxes by Peter Feuerstein.

God is the wild
I live in the wild
God is the bush
I walk in the bush
God is the map
I follow the map
God is the dark
I see in the dark
God is fear
I dwell unafraid
God is wild

and the wild
lives in me

    Thinking of God as ‘wild’ reminds me of Lucy saying to Susan (or was it the other way round), “Aslan isn’t a tame lion.” I have always loved the wildness of Westland’s bush. The startling beauty of silence broken by the clear notes of tui or bellbird is pure praise.
