Friday’s child…

that i may be available
that i may be awake
so that i may be discerning
with what i leave
and what i take

*riff on mother goose
*cards, wild unknown


consider all the pain and pleasure
you have ever experienced,
as waves on a very deep ocean which you are.

from the depths, witness those waves,
rolling along so bravely, always changing,
beautiful in their self-sustaining power.

marvel that once you identified with
only the surface of this ocean.
now embrace waves, depths, undersea mountains,
out to the farthest shore.
*The Radiance Sutra-s, L.Roche
