Port to Port - What is the Opportune Time?

In recent group spiritual direction, we read intently, in Lectio Divina fashion, Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 from the Message. In reflection through soul collage and writing, the Spirit focused my attention on these words:


There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth...


Is there an "opportune time?"

An opportune time~

Is it now?

Was it yesterday?

Will it be tomorrow?

OPPORTUNE - OPPORTUNITY

Bella Fortuna ~ Chicken of the Sea

Fortune- Where is mine?

Do I have it?

Has it docked in my port?

TREASURE. BURIED? FOUND?

FORTUNA --- Opportune ~ my ship sailed in?

~ or out to sea?

And then there's the tune--

Tune my heart to sing thy praise

take my boat, O take and seal it

for the seas beyond, above, below.


Prone to wander- port to port- I feel it-

Prone to leave the One I love.


A cruise liner~ a sailing vessel~ kayak~ canoe.

No. TINY ROW BOAT. BIG WIDE OCEAN.


Prone to wander- port to port- OPPORTUNE.

Rowing. Rowing.

Seeking a tune. A melody of~


Perhaps-

the notes played by the wind

a bird's song

the chewing of nuts

and the woodpecker's breakfast.

The trees- their fingers sway

the notes of the breath

the breeze of the One.


The One who,

at the Opportune time

rings the chime

whispers~

NOW. NOW. NOW.

It is now.

Opportune.
