Blessing the Boats | Mindful Monday

With everything going on in the world, I thought today we would move gently into Monday with a poem by Lucille Clifton.

Blessing the Boats

may the tide

that is entering even now

the lip of our understanding

carry you out

beyond the face of fear

may you kiss

the wind then turn from it

certain that it will love you back

may you

open your eyes to water

water waving forever

and may you in your innocence

sail through this to that

~ Lucille Clifton (at St. Mary’s)
