For All

For the peace and promise of a sunrise.
The quickening of breath that comes
when we take in the beauty of our surroundings.

For the mystery and humility
of daring to see how we are all connected.

The Light Today

Air thick with humidity.
Sun hazy but blinding still in its glare.

Walk carefully, pause in the shade
