Awake Every Day
“May you live every day of your life.”― Jonathan Swift
Slow time by noticing it.
Steeping in it, like a tea bag for full flavor.
The pause, stillness, quiet to be present fully where you are right now.
Witness the unfolding of the petal of a flower.
Feel the break of a smile and delight in laughter.
Put down the world and pick up this moment.
All stages of bloom, seed, bud, broken open.
Live every day, see the invisible and trust you will be put where you should be.
“If I am not, may God put me there; and if I am, may God so keep me.” – Joan of Arc
