Poems From The Porch
Open the sails of my heart
so that I may be propelled by the wind of joy.
Turn my face toward the sun
so that I may receive the warmth of compassion.
Lift the blinds on my eyes
so that I may witness the beauty of the present moment.
Empty the contents of my mind
so that I may have room for the novelty of now.
Ride the waves of my emotions
so that I may be supported and not consumed.
Honor the intuition of my gut
so that I may choose skillful action.
Ground my feet in patience
so that I may know peace with every step.
Bow my head in prayer
so that I may remember those who are suffering.
Extend my hands before me
so that I may offer a gesture of kindness.
Acknowledge the hunger of my appetite
so that I may be nourished by the Love within and around me.
Stand naked before the day
so that I may be clothed in awe and reverence.
