I arise this day to greet You.
A pot of coffee. Ahh...
An aromatic invitation to dwell within.
A simple breakfast feast
Graces the morning goodness.
Oh my God! The newspaper awakens
Me to pray the Office.
Singing Psalms from David to Jesus to me
Heal the sin sick soul, I pray.
Remember now the forgotten poor,
The outcast, persecuted, and foreign born
Unwanted refugees of war
The Empire strikes cold, cruel and “christian”.
Brighten now the day with Hope
Perhaps I too can shine
With radiance born of the Holy Child
Hush now, and hold high converse
I press the pen across the page
Taking hold my hand
The Silence somehow speaks
A mystery in the moment.
Wander, walk and wonder by the seaside
Breathe the Spirit in the salt sea air
The call of gulls; dogs and their friends
Chasing the waves as the crystal sea sparkles
And I arise this day to greet You.
