Poems From The Porch



Today, I


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.
