Before a Big Decision


Prayer Before a Big Decision

In this stormy stretch of winter,
as I ruminate on a pending decision,
may I see this time as a summer day,

the first day of summer, actually,
where I am the grassy field
and my mind is the open sky,
the trees are my hair,
the rabbits my thoughts
the birds other, freer thoughts,
and the clouds, they are ideas and messages from God

May the sky of my mind welcome
whatever litany of color, whatever font or weight,
whatever edge, hard
or soft, She may send

and me being a clod of warm earth,
may I be ever patient with myself,
as I am only beginning to learn to read
