this cadence of hope

If today gets difficult,


the smell of coffee,

the way sunlight bounces

off a window,

the sound of your

favorite person’s laugh,

the feeling when a song

you love comes on,

the color of the sky at dusk,

and that we are here

to take care of each other.

~contemplative monk

sometime in the near future, I will know….

inquiry for today~ just this sweet moment….

many days of hope


if you are too tired to speak,

sit next to me

because, I, too,

am fluent in silence.

~Thich Nhat Hanh
