Psalm For The Meaning Of Life

Let me find grace in the real world, release in
the world of my imagination, and joy in both.

Help me to notice the lessons in Your world~
the turtle to remind me to slow down;
the peach and the lilac to remind me
of what in life is sweet;
the charred piece of driftwood to remind me
that I, too, have been through the fire;
the tall yarrow alongside the road bending in
the wind to remind me that I may be bent,
but not broken;
the newborn child to remind me that wonder
and trust are the hope of the future.

Let me have a hope that bears out.

~Phyllis K. Collier
