Gifts of May
Hooray! Hooray! The first of MAY!! Hard to believe how quickly the year is moving. I was deliriously blissed to be
working in the yard yesterday morning before the torrential rains came -- even the mowing was delightful. Spring is definitely
my season. And I am reminded of a poem by Rob Brezney that I offer to you this month:
It's time for you
to claim the rewards
that were promised you
at the beginning of time:
Not just any old
excites your curiosity;
that makes you allergic to dogma;
drives you to perform
heroic acts of compassion;
that endlessly transforms
that is never permanent
but must be reinvented and reclaimed every day;
and a totally-serious-yet-always-laughing justice
that schemes and dreams
about how to diminish the suffering
and increase the joy
of every sentient being.
Now go out and have a great month!!
and if you feel like
it, share your favorite moments with us here.
