1342. Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. ~Michael Strassfeld

Everyday
I see or hear
something
that more or less

kills me
with delight,
that leaves me
like a needle

in the haystack
of light.
It was what I was born for —
to look, to listen,

to lose myself
inside this soft world —
to instruct myself
over and over

in joy,
and acclamation.
Nor am I talking
about the exceptional,

the fearful, the dreadful,
the very extravagant —
but of the ordinary,
the common, the very drab,

the daily presentations.
Oh, good scholar,
I say to myself,
how can you help

but grow wise
with such teachings
as these —
the untrimmable light

of the world,
the ocean’s shine,
the prayers that are made
out of grass?

You know those tender moments?

“You know those little moments when an unexpected act
or a spoken word affects your heart with sweet,
satiating intensity―
a simple gesture that possesses deep,
personal meaning beyond what anyone realizes?
You know those tender moments?
That’s God pressing his lips on your forehead
and whispering, ‘I love you.’”

~ Richelle E. Goodrich
