Lean In

I just want to lean in

to swallow the rays of light

rainbow sun glittering in the sky

to wash over my face

and replace the shadows

this year has left

markings deeply cut

groves of lessons

marked upon the face

the eyes

to touch the souls of the feet

groves so deep

they ought to bleed

scabbed over

then healed

transmutted into elegance

of grace that cannot be


save a beautiful day or

the brush of wings on my face

the angels spoke of this day

when we listened closely

choose to hear all 

choose to laugh

after or before the fall

just choose

or not

there is no attachment

no longing


all of it is well

good and whole

as I lean into

Your grace
