A Ritual of Morning

A Ritual of Morning July 14, 2014

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
