familiar yet almost forgotten

“We must work every day, whether we feel like it or not, otherwise when it comes time to get out of the way and listen to the work, we will not be able to heed it.”
-Madeleine L'Engle

Today, I listen to the waves,
feel the persistent breeze
nudge at my skirt and
the ends of my hair,
feel the numbness of my toes...

It is an experience of returning
as a new person, with the
same delights. The familiar
yet almost forgotten
communion of our
separate thoughts comforts
me as we walk side by side
toward the unknown haze.

The chill bites at my fingers.
I run out of ink in one pen
and ask for another. I continue.
Lord, what is my work for today?
