A Deep Dive
Poems From The Porch
The rain is dancing on the tin roof this morning,
at once the gentle presence of white noise,
now the heavy landing of water in a free fall.
I’m taking a dive today, too,
unencumbered like the rain,
but I am not going head-first.
Instead, I’m leading with an open heart and embodied presence,
the well-spring of Life baptizing clear my mind.
Here I am fully immersed in the wonder of all that is,
and my place in it,
considering what gifts I want to offer today,
and hospitable to the gifts I will receive.
