Commentary by Ivan M. Granger
This poem for today...
If you like, consider it a St. Patrick's Day poem, given John O'Donohue's Irish heritage.
I give thanks for arriving
Safely in a new dawn
Or it can be a poem to welcome the dawning of Spring.
For the gift of eyes
To see the world
Or thankfulness for vision and presence in the world.
The gift of mind
To feel at home
In my life.
Or appreciation for self and self-awareness.
The waves of possibility
Breaking on the shore of dawn
Open-hearted anticipation of how each day magically unfolds possibility into reality.
The harvest of the past
That awaits my hunger
And how the past offers itself up to feed the soul that seeks fullness by continuously reclaiming itself.
And all the furtherings
This new day will bring.
For all these reasons, for the advancing stories of our lives, rise each dawn with a smile, with strength, and with thanks!
Have a beautiful day today!
