Morning Flow!



Last night at dinner, we toasted my mother and all mothers.  It is amazing to realize none of us would be here without those wombs of nine months.

I am feeling the pulse of the mountain rising up through my feet.   That grace propels my morning flow.


Gratitude

 

Tears must be as close

as breath

because with each piece of news I hear

my eyes moisten

and a sob of response mobilizes

deep in my gut.

 

Is it like the mountain

with its holds of trees

coming up from inner springs,

the clouds leaving shadows

of shade on its slopes?

 

Is there always this place of tears,

that salty ocean that keeps us going,

like the lemming plunge of river to sea?

 

My life is blessed.

The tears express gratitude

for this precious life.

So blessed and precious,

in this moment,

and the next,

absolutely everything seems to me.

 

 

 

Wings

 

With each step,  the earth gives me a little push, Up.

I feel that boost in my chest; arms open to receive.

Shoulder blades spread; hands reach.

I’m given all I need, massaged by earth and sky.

The clouds are towels to rinse my eyes.

The blue lifts my head, then, lands a kiss

that wiggles my toes in the leap

to ground.   

 

 

 

What does the mountain say today?

Rest, rest in my streams and on my meadows.

Stroll deeply into the green and gold.

Meet the people who walk my slopes

and know I am showering blessings on you,

bringing them up through your feet and toes

to your eyes where they spread and glow

like fires and stars at night.
