March 20 Prayer
There is a peace waiting to be present,
In the simplicity of the morning cup of coffee,
Steam rising to the atmosphere,
The weeks scattered papers
as pieces to be gathered
or tossed away.
Less means more space
for peace in the slowdown.
Simplify things a bit and climb through to a place
Rest in there a while in the slowdown of the day.
As the sun glows upon the sea
slowdown to take a second glance at the tree,
the bird that cries out or sings a melodious sonnet.
Receive the spaciousness this day will bring,
When you can slow down.
And let it settle there in the open space of your soul.
Put your hope in God
and in what is being created in the silence,
in the deep holiness of the hour.
Peace be In you.
All glory be,
