So grateful for the beauty and wisdom you shared. Rest in peace, Mary Oliver.
It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.”

Language exists because nothing exists between those who express themselves.
All language is therefore a language of prayer.
Held in the dark, without sleep. —
Quote: Lynn Xu, from “Say You Will Die For Me,” Debts and Lessons.( Omnidawn; 1 edition, April 1, 2013)
thank you, The Vale of Soul Making
Enveloped in Your Light, may I be a beacon to those in search of Light.
Sheltered in Your Peace, may I offer shelter to those in need of peace.
Embraced by Your Presence, so may I be present to others.
Enveloped, sheltered and embraced- all words that speak to care and comfort and safety.
It is right that I pray this each day, each hour so that I may share in my own abundance.
Let grace rain down.
Quote: Rabbi Rami Shapiro
My prayer is, let me be a blessing to someone or something today.
