A Prayer for the weekend

A prayer when I awakened -

When I awaken God --

---- with words from you,

---- with my cat molded around the crown of my head like a hat,

---- hearing birds chirp outside my window with energetic songs,

---- with peace in my heart,

---- with gratitude for uninterrupted sleep,

I am blessed.

Thank you for early morning holiness to wear during the day like my favorite sweater, snuggling into the seams, weaving myself through each knit stitch, clasping further my hold on you. Amen.

  1. All those little ways we are blessed, if we only take time to notice, and to thank. Lovely images, each one. The cat "molded around the crown of my head like a hat" brings a smile, and the birds--I hear them now myself out my own window, because you reminded me to listen. I am blessed, too, because of you. Thank you for the gift of this poem to carry with me, like a favorite sweater. So many little images packed into even the prayer.
