last morning in April


this morning
looking out bedroom window
my gauge of what to expect
snow
cold
clean
white
and birds singing
just the same


 i turn on the news

to date
200,000 gallons of oil
spilled in the Gulf
massive
out of control
(sigh)


then i roll over
a witness
to pure love
innocence
devotion

for me
it's a beautiful day

what i keep learning over and over is to hold the sadness, the beauty, the joy, the fear/anger...all of it at the same time...and still always return to awe.
