Poised in Hope

“Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly! indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!” – William Wordsworth

“Intellect does not function in opposition to mystery; tolerance is not more pragmatic than love; and cynicism is not more reasonable than hope.” – Krista Tippett

May hope be the ground you stand on, take root in.
Love be the path you travel.
Partaking in joy on your way through space and time.

“Hope is an orientation, an insistence on wrestling wisdom and joy from the endlessly fickle fabric of space and time.” – Krista Tippett
