To notice

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
Today the wisdom I pray for
is no more than to pay attention,
the wisdom of unknowing,

to listen like the earth
listens to the rain,

to notice and attend
to the smallest bird of you,
the faintest whiff of you,

not to stare at the ground
but to look up,

to hear your silence
in what is almost said,

hidden, almost,
in every one,

to be as open as a lover
to your presence.

Weather Report

though partly clouded,
as a calm air of attentiveness
burns through
the a mass of preoccupations
obscuring visibility.
Highs near wonder.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
