The Dew of Little Things

 

“In the dew of little things,

the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”

– Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

 

May the beauty of little things bring you joy this holiday season. May you find your heart’s morning. May you be refreshed.

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

Like Smoke Across the Sky

 

“In the cloud-gray mornings

I heard the herons flying;

And when I came into my garden,

My silken outer-garment

Trailed over withered leaves.

A dry leaf crumbles at a touch,

But I have seen many Autumns

With herons blowing like smoke

Across the sky.”

Amy Lowell, “Hoar Frost” –

 

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

Give Me October

 

Give me October’s meditative haze,

Its gossamer mornings, dewy-wimpled eves…

And all is peace, peace, and plump fruitfulness.

Alfred Austin, “October” –

 

Nurture peace. Cultivate kindness.

When you can, step away from the chaos and into the calm.

Then carry that calm with you, deep in your heart.
