Showing Up

show up
like the sun, each day
nothing special asked
just be there
provide light, when needed
give warmth, always

special things happen
when we’re fully present
when we set ourselves aside
surrender to the moment
give ourselves to others
by simply being there

it starts by opening our hearts
reaching out with love
holding hands with truth
then, like the sculptor
setting free
what’s always longed to be beautiful

Dedicated to Jim and Elayne Devine
for their caring and sharing.

    You are so right…..we just need to turn up….this is surely the key to succeeding at meditation.

  3. wow, i love when serendipity treats me to stuff like your blog. after searching technorati for spiritual poetry, your blog came up. i love your blog and hope it’s ok to add you to my blogroll.

    (i’ve been blogging for a while, but went through some renovations and redecorating and slightly different approaches to blogging.)

  4. Well, aren’t you a sweetie for dedicating such a nice poem for your friends. I love and agree with the sentiment expressed. 🙂
