POEM - A Graceful Space

When what is shadow seems most real;
Remember light is always near.

When the apple seems out of reach
Remember wanting makes it sweet.

When everything is yours in full,
Remember giving it away.

When tomorrows are drained from you,
Remember graceful space is yours.

(This buoyant space that delivers new salvation
like a morning newspaper,
tri-folded, rubber-banded,
plastic-wrapped, unknown and waiting -
Is always accepted through freshest eyes –

Miles from what is safe and certain,
This graceful space is how I grow.)
