Unfinished Poem

                                     (for Amy M-K)


I wake into giving thoughts,
day already blooming for me
(if I am ready to receive
it without hesitation)

I rise into givens, catching
as much as possible with mitts
(protecting my hands, hands shielding
my heart, eyes closed, peeking)

I will, I promise daily, learn
to receive Light bare handed
(and uncover my heart, and   
worship with eyes open)

  12. Beautiful! Receiving the day and what comes with it, that is a testament to faith. To receive it without hesitation. Something I try to do everyday, but it isn't always easy. Regards.

  14. I tend to think light energy needs a bare head to receive it, rather than bare hands? I reckon it beams straight down our centre line...

    1. Nice! Thank you! I like the idea that centering is part of receiving. For some faiths, many prayers a day with a covered head to honor God.

  16. I am grateful every day for the light - it was the topic today at the church where my granddaughter got baptized. I began to think about the inherent metaphors we humans have given to day/ night - dark/light and how it frames our thoughts, ideas and actions, even our faith. Well said.
