On Waking

Once again, thanks to MK and of course, to John. In just 12 hours, I take my leave back to the islands and I carry these words, a grateful heart and the abundant blessings of my life  as I make this journey a complete circle.

On Waking

I give thanks for arriving

Safely in a new dawn,

For the gift of eyes

To see the world,

The gift of mind

To feel at home

In my life.

The waves of possibility

Breaking on the shore of dawn,

The harvest of the past

That awaits my hunger,

And all the furtherings

This new day will bring.

~ John O’Donohue
