Do not
Want to step so quickly
Over a beautiful line on God's palm
As I move through the earth's

I do not want to touch any object in this world
Without my eyes testifying to the truth
That everything is
My Beloved.

Something has happened
To my understanding of existence
That now makes my heart always full of wonder
And kindness.

I do not
Want to step so quickly
Over this sacred place on God's body
That is right beneath your
Own foot

As I
Dance with
Precious life

I can't help but reflect on the beauty that surrounds me. It's hard to take notice of every little beautiful thing on a daily basis, but those days, like TODAY, when you do take notice you can't help but be amazed and in awe. Springtime seems to bring so many colors to light. And this afternoon while I drove down the hill to get the kids from the grandparent's house I was struck with the gorgeous view of magnificent, too white clouds hanging up against a too blue sky. My heart skipped a beat and my eyes danced. I felt so light and happy that I could have floated right on up to the heavens if I wasn't grasping the steering wheel so tightly.
