cleansed and renewed


Dragonflies rise in the slow heat. Sugar falls from their exquisite wings onto the waiting tongues of all creation. What is tomorrow? It is nothing. Don’t even think of it. Rise now in the slow heat. Shake the sugar from your wings as you fly. All of life in the beating of fine wings in the warmth of the air.

I find comfort in books, writing paper, pencils, and pens. I keep them handy. Also, the sunrise is a friend, each day the rising light wakes me with a reminder, "You are still alive." It's a good thought to start the morning. Other things, too, please me. My wife's hand on mine. The smell of coffee brewing. The sounds that birds make. A fresh breeze that catches me all of a sudden with a reminder, "You are still alive." So, overall, I find that life has been good to me, for I have all of this, and I remind myself that I am still alive, and right here. I am right here.

may the earth be cleansed
may the sky be cleansed
may the waters be cleansed
may our love be cleansed
may that which defines life be cleansed
cleansed and renewed
cleansed and renewed
