Blessed Epiphany Day!
Blessings to you on this Epiphany Day! I love this day of mystery and light. In celebration, this blessing is for you.
EVERY GIVEN LIGHT
There are days
only so much
a light so small
we could carry it
in the palm of
to let us see
the next step,
into the mystery.
There are days
but in shadow,
days it gathers itself
into the corners,
days it seems
to turn its gaze
as if distracted,
Let it be said
this is not
This is the day
This is the day
when every given light
like a star,
turning its face
toward us with
that was there
that it had saved
just for us,
just for the joy
of seeing us
