grace fills empty spaces
sets nosegays on
blank tabletops

Return to the most human,
nothing less will nourish the torn spirit,
the bewildered heart,

This morning
the beautiful white heron
was floating along above the water

the gift of our 10,000 days
travelling together
this blue green planet among stars
this living school for love called Earth

in the in between

written for Diana Beresford-Kroeger

tumbling into slumber
I rewind and review
count my many blessings
and unpack my treasures
