Daily Bliss – August 9


The Angels remind us to appreciate the gifts we receive, even if they’re wrapped in packages we don’t understand or wouldn’t have chosen.  So many time we throw out something valuable because it doesn’t appear so on the outside.  As Mary Oliver writes, even darkness can be a gift.

Darkness Within, Uncovered

Darkness Uncovered

This too shall pass,
The whispers whisper,
Yet it feels like darkness stays forever
And light refrains from illuminating
The places inside and out
Which need the light for mere survival

And yet it is in these moments
That the whispers also whisper
A reminder,
An ancient recollection:

Although the light is seeking us
We must also seek the light;
Illumination comes from opening the inner heart,
Withstanding not resisting,
Courageously opening to it,
Going through it,

For often, they whisper,
The greatest insights are discovered
From the darkness within, uncovered

These Ghosts

Above
The ghosts, they come and go
Lingering in the darkness of a crowded mind
Moving in and out, wispy and ethereal,
Making space for their meanderings
Between the walls of untrained thoughts
And loose-lipped whispers

Haunting, magical
Inescapable grace
Whispers of the past
Harbingers of a future yet unseen

These ghosts, they dominate the mind
When the mind dwells in past affairs
Swirling in and through the soul,
Making present lives but a hazy dream

These ghosts, they are but fiction,
A fragment of a dream already dreamt
No amount of clinging will bring them back
Or make them real again
These ghosts, just let them be
