WORDS LIKE LIGHT
July 5, 2021
Each day – each moment – I am nurtured by our compassionate universe. All the countless atoms in my body are continuously nourished by a soft, persistent force that’s beyond understanding, and somehow my heart and lungs are taken good care of by a ‘mother’ that’s steadier than the endless sky. Today, I will be attended to by breath, by thoughts, by unfolding feelings, and by the warm words I will read and hear. Breezes and sunshine and vast distances will administer to my needs. I will be fed by every pampering moment. Sustenance will be as close as the quiet air.
COMING BACK This morning I came back to my life. Cars came back to the streets of our town. Sounds that love our homes and lawns came back. A flag on a store came back to the wind with a rush, and words I sent out walking yesterday came back this morning to this poem.
