My Heart Leaps Up by William Wordsworth
“My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a man;
So be it when I shall grow old,
Or let me die!
The Child is father of the Man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.”
May the deep blue sky capture your attention.
Penetrate the armor.
Push you back on your heels in awe.
Seek delight in the ordinary.
Pursue joy in reach.
Woven in the sky.
In blessings we pass by daily without seeing them.
Take full account.
Look up, leap up.
“Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
