January 2nd

Today I saw beings
communing in silent prayer
about ready to be

Today I tasted worship
burst fourth
as sprays of sunshine
inside my mouth

Today I smelt tea
my sister-in-law gave to me,
which reminded me of a walk
on crisp, fall day.

Today I hear my own words
as I say to my son,
“may you walk on soles of love,
and may peace guide your steps.”

Today I felt conflicted
things left undone,
yet taking my own advice:
it will get done in its own time.
