Monday words for the Soul~April 28~Today

Today

by Mary Oliver

Today I’m flying low and I’m
not saying a word.
I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep.

The world goes on as it must,
the bees in the garden rumbling a little,
the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten.
And so forth.

But I’m taking the day off.
Quiet as a feather.
I hardly move though really I’m traveling
a terrific distance.

Stillness. One of the doors
into the temple.

“Today” by Mary Oliver from A Thousand Mornings. The Penguin Press, 2012.

A Poem~Because You Are

Because You Are by Heidi Haller

Right where I am is where I should be.
In the center of Your will,
the perfect place to rest and dream,
Undisturbed.
When I need to go forth You will tell me.
Your timing flawless, I will respond.
The path is not marked but I don’t worry,
soon Your way will be known.

I marvel.
There’s no explanation
or evidence of Your existence.
I know simply because You
are as constant as the sun.
All the glory goes to You.
Sustaining me, shaping me, guarding me.
You, who gives me direction.

Blessed are we who know You.
May our many voices be pleasing to You.
May the many become all and the all become one.

What If Wednesday

What if change insisted on a
different road?
