A Ritual of Morning

Lay in your bed

Sleepy eyed

Disenchanted

When the temple bells ring

Hit snooze

And again

Then arise, delightful soul clothed in flesh

Light streaming from your heart

Serene, full of unconditional love

Make coffee

Pee

 

Sit at your desk

Check email

Read blogs

Allow the clarity of your brilliant mind

To pierce logical fallacies

Bring forth reason unassailable

Write sarcastic comment

Delete same

Kneel at your altar

Light candles

Pray

Holy Mother

Grant me patience

Peace

Persistence

To make of my world

A living

Offering of

Beauty

Shovel chicken shit

Be in Joy¹

¹I’m pretty sure that Francesca de Grandis was the first person I heard say the words “be in joy” in that order, so credit goes to her for stringing those pearls.
