Relaxing Into Now

Poems From The Porch




A crackling fire and birdsong,

with generous sun

bathing the field in light,

offer a soft entry into the day,

a gentle invitation for the appreciation of beauty

and a simple faith that all

is unfolding as needs be.


The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

I see it now revealed

in the way the light caresses the trees

and the cats sit in silent companionship,

in the inner reassurance that

everything occurs one breath at a time

and that this moment is sufficient.


No need to fret or prepare

for a future catastrophe

or to see the day as too much to handle.


Grace is given afresh in each now

even without a hospitable heart,

but a relaxed receptivity helps.
