Courage

Courage

Be a good steward
of the courage you are given.

Befriend your fear,
your faithful companion,

wise challenger;
bear it as a shield in battle.

Offer up a generous burnt offering
of your security, your comfort.

You needn’t push yourself.
Follow the Spirit that leans forward in you.

Submit to the sun
rising in you.

Dare to be the tattered dandelion,
nothing left but wispy seeds,

floating on the unknown,
the divine wind.
