Thoughts That Come With The Dawn

11 Mar

First thoughts of the day,
gifts to capture and consider,
slow mind waking into the almost light,
old muscle and joints moving carefully
but with intention and determined
gratitude. Nuggets that become
the nexus of prayer.

People who worked all night while I slept,
for their vigilance.
Gratitude

My friend’s smile because love has
returned and filled an empty place.
Joy

Imagined sounds of exploding bombs,
weeping. The smell of fear.
Anger

The realization of oneness connecting
all living beings: people, animals, growing trees,
rivers and oceans.
Wonder

Hello…Good Morning…Have a great day,
Nice to see you this morning. Greetings.
Appreciation

Songs and poems and words used to
build up, affirm, validate. Conversations
that construct, not condemn.
Glad welcome

My love, still sleeping, as I
thought-pray into the new day.
Devotion

Mystery that I cannot explain,
beyond comprehension,
formless form but
persistent presence.
Confidence

Old friend. Way Walker,
joke teller and life changer.
Comforter, Challenger,
Embodiment of all.
Yes

First thoughts in the new day
as light seeps into the darkness.
Slowly waking to all that is sacred.
Everything

      Guess who was on my mind when I wrote the third stanza.
