Blessings Day 324: blessing the day, the quiet flow, all the stories that have led me here, those that are keepers, those that are not. Yet also knowing there’s this eternal child in me (perhaps s/he’s in you, too).

she’s innocent, 

she’s silly,

she scatters seeds of wonder,

she has deep pockets filled with possibilities

but no conclusions, 

she’s endlessly curious.

 
She listens to my stories,

but she is not of them.

No, she belongs

to that other place

where the pale moon

holds court with shimmering stars,

and the tree branches

tremble with anticipation,

spilling their joy

into luminous rivers of light.


This is the place she calls Home.

Silence

Wassertropfen

after you hold tight to the story
you may want to re-write it
but words don’t come

they don’t ask you to
change the belief
honor the pain
forgive yourself
or any other

the night is heavy
the day is light
it doesn’t matter

tell me what you’ve lost
I will surely tell you what you’ve found

you don’t have to die to ride
the softest wave
back home

floating on your back
letting life carry you

back to a nameless place
where Life sustains you

invisibly with its seamless love
weaving through your days
and nights

it’s not waiting for your gratitude
or your forgiveness
or your redemption

Innocence waits for nothing

It has no opinion of your story
holds no grudges,
makes no conclusion
knows nothing of your suffering

Innocence doesn’t age or remember
Holds no deep pockets filled with unending rules
It carries only one inherent knowing:
it knows the wholeness

It will ask only one thing of you,
that you be willing to hear it’s resounding chorus

It’s a sound like nothing at all
it sounds like
                                          stillness.
