Yet again a new day has come.
Is this the moment to rise?
Is it now, the time
to slip out of the covers and enter
the uncertainty of the new day?
Let me start this day with
joyful silence so focused and present
just like the bird
joining the rays of the sun each day with
rhythm of a song.
Let me meet this day with
grace and wonder, not looking away.
Is that enough? Living this life
with open eyes and
ever so aching heart enough?
When the evening comes,
will I know if I’ve lived enough?
I don’t know if there is a plan or
if I pray enough,
all I know I live another day.
