So come to the pond,
or the river of your imagination,
or the harbor of your longing,
and put your lips to the world.
— Mary Oliver
Today I want to encourage you to put your lips on the world
and allow it’s vapors to drip upon you like dew.
Breathe within its vastness life with the God of Heaven that dwells within.
Like a child with a big bubble, blown as round as can be-
balance this world with intention.
Take your eyelids and cover the tears of mourning,
give back your smile to infuse victory among the people.
For your presence is great, and useful only to
those who choose to be present within its realm.
You are who you believe you are. You can only change what you see.
Dare to be a dancer; choreograph your today like a lyric with its own melodic sound-
don’t be bound I say, don’t be bound.
Unravel your innerman with prophetic mind escapades
that open the imagination for you to see with clarity-
Be without resistance, let your inner movement show in your gait-
let each gifted moment be one that you create
like love that springs forth and makes us high
be willing to be the fruit
juicy, and ripe on the vine.
Pick up your day and taste yourself in the morning sunlight
know that your fruit, your harvest is perpetual and always on time.
Enjoy your day!
