Dawn seeped upwards as I lie,
Sleepy eyed but awed,
“This is the day that God has made.”
Let joy spread over all.
Quickly my mind hatched a grand design,
Of the tasks I would take on this day,
And just as quickly I felt a nudge,
“Just love,” I heard Him say,
So in that moment of inner discovery,
I observed my routine with much vigor,
I must do the ordinary simple tasks,
Deep centered love the trigger.
I looked at my loved one a new way,
As I brought him his morning cup,
He grumbled “too strong” though not I,
I smiled and said “time to get up.”
Even the shower enfolded me
With love in the wonder of water,
Scents I had forgotten to notice,
Heightened my heart with laughter.
I prayed for Henry Ford,
As I cranked up my clunker’s engine,
Gave my paper to a passer by,
Prayed for him, too, I might mention.
The grand design I had planned,
Met some crisis almost every hour,
Still when Love was bubbling inside,
The day never did go sour.
Now I lie, moonlight in the window,
And drift into a peaceful sleep,
Praying to follow His grand design,
And a loving touch to keep.
