Pre-dawn wonderings

Waking in darkness, waiting for light,
wondering what in the world day will bring:
What am I weary of? What am I wary of?
Where am I wounded, and where am I wise? 
What am I wishing for, what shall I watch for?
Where should I walk and what work should I do...

Pay attention to your breathing

As you work, or walk, today, pay attention to your breathing:
on which portion of it do you spend your time?
With inhalation, as you gather inspiration?
With the space between the inhale and the ex,
processing, preparing for the work that's yet to come?
With the exhale, breathing out your gifts into the world?
Or in the rest that follows, creating stillness
for gestations yet to come?

What calls you?

Take time today to explore what it is 
that calls you into the light...

At the center of being

Take a moment to stop and breathe.
Step away from your computer;
take a walk in the garden.
Set aside that driving need to accomplish, and rest.
Find the pearl that waits at the center of being.

A dream of survival

Last night the sky glowed red, white, and blue --
first time I'd ever seen this happen.
I'd like to believe it's a positive omen:
a promise that our country will survive
the ugliness of this election.
A girl can dream...

Limitless potential

As I lie here, tucked beneath the cover of the trees,
the fog begins to lift from my soul
and I awaken to the limitless potential of the day.

Look beyond the surface

The colors we see may not be what the camera sees,
just as the truth you see may not be what another sees.
Everything depends on illumination, 
which takes many different forms:
look beyond the surface to the love that lies beneath.
