  • Gratitude



    The way to innocence, to the uncreated and to God leads on,
    not back to the wolf or to the child, but ever further into sin, ever deeper into human life.

    - Herman Hesse, Steppenwolf



    I give thanks
    For the profound mystery of the moments
    In which we are held

    For consciousness and breath
    Moon and stars
    The shade of trees and all greenery

    The seven seas
    And the beautiful vagaries of wind
    Against my skin

    I confess the deadly
    Sin of Sloth and Acedia that I have failed
    And not loved well enough

    Those in my life
    Who matter most - family and friends
    With whom I journey

    I must work hard
    In daily living to reflect Hesse's words
    To be a better poet
