how to see possibility


Sometimes, you need the ocean light,
and colours you’ve never seen before
painted through an evening sky.

Sometimes you need your God
to be a simple invitation
not a telling word of wisdom.

Sometimes you need only the first shyness
that comes from being shown things
far beyond your understanding,

so that you can fly and become free
by being still and by being still here.

And then there are times you want to be
brought to ground by touch
and touch alone.

To know those arms around you
and to make your home in the world
just by being wanted.

To see eyes looking back at you,
as eyes should see you at last,

seeing you, as you always wanted to be seen,
seeing you, as you, yourself
had always wanted to see the world.

~David Whyte

wild. rose. heart. life.

inquiry for today~  what may look a little differently today? a fine twist on the old…….

Sometimes, despite (or perhaps because of) the world’s confusion and conflicts, we just have to give in and let ourselves be swept along by life that renews itself over and over. Driving the car, taking in the trees unfurling with a freshness that brought tears to my eyes, I whispered the only possible response: “Yes, yes, yes!”
