Sabbath

Today,

give it a rest. 

Enough with the getting

and having,

the grasping and gasping. 

You woke up today

and have breath

and a new day to 

witness to simple beauties:

a loved one’s laugh

a stranger’s smile

the pleasure of touch

a song remembered. 

Let the light

of gratitude fill you up

so that in the

time of rest

you see yourself

part of the whole 

and

holy.
