Love Poem: Hundreds of Ways

Today, like every day,
we are ruined and lonely.

Don't retreat,
fleeing your emptiness
through the doorway
of thinking.

Try making some music instead.

There are hundreds of ways
to kneel in prayer-
hundreds of ways to open
toward the heart
of the Friend's beauty.

Today I'm not sure I'm up for MAKING anything, even music.

Then I realized how undemanding kneeling can be, how effortless opening ones heart to a friend can be; that so much beauty becomes evident in that, and so much music comes from that.

Maybe I'm finding another of the hundreds of ways. I hope I am being so blessed.
