How
Did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
All it’s
Beauty?

It felt the encouragement of light 
Against its
Being. 

Otherwise,
We all remain
Too
Frightened

~ Christine Valters Paintner

Breathing and Smiling
Inspired by Thich Nhat Hann

"Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment,
I know this is a wonderful moment!"

When We Breathe Together

This is the blessing
we cannot speak
by ourselves. 

This is the blessing
we cannot summon
by our own devices,
cannot shape
to our own purposes,
cannot bend to our own will. 

This blessing
that comes
when we leave behind
our aloneness,
when we gather
together,
when we turn
toward one another. 

This is the blessing
that blazes among us
When we speak the words
strange to our ears,

when we finally listen
into the chaos,

when we breathe together
at last. 

     ~Jan Richardson from “Circle of Grace: A Book of Blessings for the Seasons”
