New Year 2014

Resolution

Just to live each day in the light it comes

Hunting for the treasures

sparkling in their not so hidden places

delighting to be found.

 

A New Day, A New Year

Morning by morning

earth life is renewed

Thanksgiving for sleep giving

new perspective in a new brighter light

Thanksgiving for second chances again and again

for lifelong learning of how to live grace filled.

Last year’s slips and slides

can be my teachers

to grasp hand, rope or ladder extended

to pull me out of self-inflicted

muddles and messes

A gracious life begins with

receiving it for myself

then the transfer of giving it away

to others is smooth as silk

gentle as a dove.
