A POEM FOR SATURDAY - READ OUT LOUD
Whatever your reward is today, or this weekend, to lift and sustain your spirits, the spirits of those around you, family, friends, neighbors, I hope you recognize and relish in that reward however momentary.
May those moments or minutes build on whatever expanse allows your heart and mind to fill with light, hope and comfort.
The smile of your relatives as you engage with them via a WhatsApp video call.
The swirling steam rising from your favorite cup of tea.
A letter in your mailbox.
A prayer shared in your LifeGroup WhatsApp Group.
The silly songs of your children, the chorus of their joys.
Fresh air moving around because the breeze decided to show up.
Tony and Mary walking hand in hand, slowly, with intent, at the Town Center.
A quote shared by a friend, "If you don't light a candle, don't complain about the dark."
The aroma of Ana's 15 bean soup.
Confident blue skies before the afternoon storms.
The friendship of silence and peace.
Drew skateboarding like a teenager out front, every flip and turn an awkward ballet only he knows.
Deep, purposeful, healthy breaths.
