Benediction


Pronouncing blessing
on the freshness of the breeze
that snatches away
all those gnawing thoughts
and clamouring ideas
that will keep
until another time
Pronouncing blessing
on the salty tang
that cleanses the palate
of the bitter taste
of judgment and criticism
unwelcome companions
on the journey
Pronouncing blessing
on the biting cold
that numbs the wounded spirit
damaged beyond repair
from too many searing remarks
cast thoughtlessly over the shoulder
by those considered friends
Pronouncing blessing
on a moments peace
an at-one-ness with nature
and all its healing balm
Pronouncing blessing
on the God of creation
who meets us
in that moment
Thanks be to God
