fire & quiet

I wish I could show you,

when you are lonely

or in darkness,

the astonishing light of

your own being.

~Hafiz

how many holidays come and go in a haze of light and angels passing by?

inquiry for today~ maybe we can pause and see rather than be in the middle of it all…..

a little glitter

Go to a coffee shop.

Sit by the bar with the glass windows

and look out.

Look at all the people running

to catch a train.

All the girls with one too many

shopping bags.

All the couples too in love

to care.

Then you’ll see it-

a bit of yourself in everyone.

And somehow,

sitting alone in a coffee shop

had never felt so good.
