no one can stop the
rain, push the river,
or force the sun behind a cloud.
Each day is delicate and fresh
with so much possibility for you
if you invite it,
if you live the invitation.
What would you like to invite into your life?
and what would you like to ask gently to leave?
breathing in, and breathing out,
enjoying the permanent state
that doesn’t come or go, but is always
ready, present and willing.
