Nowhere to Hide
Help me stay awake to every moment of this day the events I like
and those I don’t – equally welcomed in my sight,
or at least not pushed away.
Help me celebrate the simple truths,
the march of clouds across blue sky, the scent of purple hyacinths,
the small green pea shoots pushing up from seeds.
If I am made in your image and likeness,
may my heart grow wider and wider until nothing in this world is left outside,
and I have nowhere to hide from love.”
