blessing a new housemate

Published on 6th July 2019



For the new housemate among us,

For his hopes and fresh life,

As he pours into bathroom cabinets

The porch room

The top fridge

Shelf.

May we create for him

Space

That he might feel

And fuel

The true

Shape

Of himself.


For the way

A new body

Allows our selves

To embody new

Responses,

Practices,

Reflections.

Helping hold the weight,

We find ourselves lightened

And enlightened,

In your arrival.

May we arrive

More fully

Into and unto

Our

Selves.

Taking off the shelves

Old

Unaddressed habits.


Open the door

Let them in

Breathe new life

Begin again,

This full house

espouses

a new

more vibrant wholeness.

Through dear

And clunky

Invitations

Each situation

Grants more opportunity

To practice

Self-encounter

Anew.


I am grateful

For the light

You each bring in

And allow me to pull

Out and off

Old self

Shelves.
