Beginnings’ Offering

Another wonderful poem from Daryl…


Priority to set
Of gifting to prepare
Awakening this day
Into our time of prayer

Beginnings’ offering
When the mind is clear
One of morning light
Within the open air

Stilling of the soul
To stir the inner ear
Speaking heart to heart
Silence that we share

Birthing of this day
Creator be aware
Of outer and within
Your Presence being here
