Summer Early Morning

                       – Br. Michael, ofm        

Cool summer air

pushes its way

past the boundaries

of the open windows

filling the room with freshness

cradling me

as the sun makes its

warm claim on the day

stirring me.

Breathing in this cool summer air

feeling the warming sun

I am filled with gratitude for

Divine Grace

Divine Love

this near.

I rise from sleep


ready to make

my claim on the day.


Continued Summer Blessings.
