The First Step

Thank you, teacher, for reminding me

Of this holy opportunity,

To let go of preconceived notions

As I step into the unknown.

What glorious wonders appear

Right before my eyes!

The kitten on my desktop, my faithful dog underneath,

The morning breezes playing catch me if you can through open skies and the arms of trees.

Oh, this precious earth whirling round in star studded space, I pray that I’ll never forget, not for a moment, the magnitude of grace that keeps unfolding, a blossom full of seed for the miracles yet to be revealed, even now in earth’s hour of dire need.

I vow to walk each step, today, as mindfully as I am able.

Please take my hand, if you can, and we’ll take the path while singing.

No one knows what our future holds but it’s only love for all of this, and for you and you and you, only such love that so peirces the heart that is light enough to carry and worth bringing.
