A Blessing for Rising

For all of us who sleep in tangled and hard places

For the ones whose ears are open in the deepest of darkness, listening as poetry stirs

For anyone who has ever forgotten or risen unsure what day it is

For each of us who is willing to rise

May this day greet you with wonder

May its morning song invite you to sing songs of forgiveness and love stronger than wrongs that have been done, are being done, still

May you sing into these broken places, find strength on the wings of birds, open your heart to the eyes of others and know how it feels to soar.
