I am having a shaky day, in the shadows of a brilliant Solstice Celebration last evening. I am in need of consolation, so I shall use my words to comfort myself. This poem was written during a very dark time and I remember it well.
As a bonus, I am linking to an article I found about Grace. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Here is a sample:
Grace is Courage – You are in a state of grace when, during those moments when you can see no way out of a predicament, you know that love will prevail. Even though you may feel afraid, there is so much love in your heart that you know you will not give up. Grace is the warmth in your heart that gives you courage.
Please hold me in your thoughts and prayers as I navigate another challenge that I cannot control or avoid. The only way is through.
Where is Grace?
Grace is realizing the car keys are in your other pocket
Grace is when the cop gives you a warning this time
Grace is when the red birds descend on your terrace ” just because”
Grace is when you discover your checkbook error
that you subtracted one hundred dollars by mistake
Grace is when the sky opens and the sun tells the clouds to get lost for a spell
Grace is the neighbor’s cat who snuggles with you after yours has passed away
Grace is the stranger who helps you pick up your groceries off the floor
Grace is the MRI that reveals you don’t have that illness after all
Grace is accepting what is and surviving with renewed hope
Grace is a whole heart after a lifetime of shatters and scars
Grace is a million new beginnings
Grace is finding love way past your prime
Grace is everpresent

update (2013) :
I wrote this poem , or rather this poem wrote me, from a place filled with a mixture of despair, emptiness, hope, and gratitude. Your response has been wonderful and I thank you. My poetry has always been fueled by intense emotion and manifests only when it is good and ready. Stay tuned for new arrivals in future posts.
