About Sofiah

"My name is Sofiah Sexton. I live in Exeter, California--not far from the Badger group. I recently published a book of my writings called A Path in the Wilderness. I am working on a new book called Wandering Down the Lane. I am 75 years old and have been in Subud for fifty years. I am a retired school librarian/media specialist. I have two sons, one of whom is in Subud and is married to the daughter of Sharif and Sulfiati Harris. They have five children and live in Visalia, California--about ten miles from me. I live with two little Shih-Poos who are welcome company, especially since the lockdown. I am a member of the Friends Meeting of Visalia, California. I love writing and photographing nature."

Humble Origins

Southern river valleys

And similar habitats

Of simple, earnest folk

Soak up the sorrow

Into the river and the hills

Of the valley. Trees and grasses

Glisten in the doleful tunes

Arising from the fiddles and guitars…

Falling down again in bitter tears

To feed the endless cycle of desires

Unfulfilled and passions shamefully spent.

Here is a safe place—

A space to hang out

And share hearts’ concerns and joys,

And schemes and occupations of minds.

The Grace-filled singing, dancing,

Twirling, praying, and blissful silences

Circulate among the open hearts

And quiet mind of spiritual siblings.

Reclamation of the Garden’s seed

Is broadcast in our revolving planet’s parched foundation.

Fresh rains will refresh the yearning Soil of the Earth

And her newborn species will arise.
