other people's words

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything 
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today, 
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth 
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay 
great happening illimitably earth) 

how should tasting touching hearing seeing 
breathing any--lifted from the no 
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You? 

(now the ears of my ears awake and 
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

This is all I have these days - other people's words. Finding my way back to my own.  Hopefully soon.  It is hard work to awaken the ears of my ears and open the eyes of my eyes.

Oh I so understand where you are...and you going where you need to go....
words beautiful words
meaningful words
deep words
Soon you will pull your own from the universe
soon soon
Have a happy heart and all will be well....

It's not so hard. Just...let yourself say what you want/need to.
I have missed you!
