The Break

 

Upper Kananaskis Lake

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paddles skim on liquid glass,

Sky checks her reflection;

Rocky shores with wooden doors

Display her pure complexion.

Hands of Time, I snap you here,

To break your counting power,

Cram a lifetime’s thirsty soul

Into this sacred hour.

Butter on living toast,

you breakfast my morning

with breathless beauty,

food for thought and heart

.

to sate endless appetite

(heart hunger rarely needs

to loosen its belt); soul

growls, empty, and you,

.

in so temporary a skin,

exercise your right

to round my malnourished belly

with your dying gift.

.

Daylily blossoms only last for one day, as their name implies – yet how much their short-lived petals bless our world! What can YOU do today to feed someone’s spirit?
