meditation, a morning indulgence

sky pregnant with dawn

late mating cicadas screech

singing wordless prayers

i bath in this pre-day light

hollowed out

my mind a receptacle

each breathe


i meet THEE here

enamored in surrender

let it be let it be

love rises enfolding me

kneading each limb

i am renewed

thank you

the sweetest of praise

is uttered

the day begins

and all is well

(even if it isn’t)

    Even if it isn’t. That one little aside adds a lovely undertone and twist to this poem…and captures my feelings on meditation and prayer, etc. It’s not just about the days you’re already feeling peaceful. Very nice.
