This Place

It’s a simple thing,

This wandering

In which we all partake.

We complicate

We hesitate,

And spend it half awake.

But if we pause,

Accept our flaws,

And opt instead for grace,

We’ll mindfully

And kindly see

The gift that is this place.

Knees

Sometimes it’s good to hit one’s knees,

When grateful, broken, humbled, pleased.

Though it may hurt or chafe the pride,

It may speak well to what’s inside.

When overwhelmed or broken down,

Feel no shame when on the ground.

We’re wiser when we do recall

That we’re not Master over all.

Thanks for Reading! Be Blessed!

Waves Roll High

Wisdom dawns for me

At the boundries of the sea.

Waves roll high

As morning tides

Erase my certainty.

For every course I run

Underneath the blazing sun,

Despite it all,

I’m still so small,

When all is said and done.

I watch the waters lift

And pull and swell and drift,

I must confess

Deep thankfulness,

For Life is such a gift.

Blessings Sweet

When the sun is tucked away

And night at last is here to stay,

I pause to drink in blessings sweet

That graced the day now in retreat.

I find the deepest, truest way

Is that which leads me more to say

How grateful I am for this chance

To have a part in Life’s brief dance.
