12 Things I Am Grateful For This Year
Day 10:  Signs

Signs

Seeing signs
requires intention.
I cannot tell you
what to look for.
I can only tell you
how they come, to me—
as a leaf, a cloud or anything
heart-shaped,
as an event, joyful or jarring,
a moonrise or traffic jam—
anything that feels heavy with change.
It may open like a webpage
or a book in my brain
to a passage with insight
or specific direction.

But the loveliest of signs
are those that require
no effort or translation.
They simply arrive,
transcendent reminders
of Something-Divine.
