To pardon each day and not hold it against itself. To pardon it for its puny disappointments and disparaging ways. To pardon it for its illusions and unmet resolutions.To pardon it for its uncouth brashness. To pardon it for its malaise. To pardon it for its funk. To pardon it for its blasé. To pardon it for umbrage and chafe. To pardon it for its ills, improprieties, neglect, rudeness, hurts, callousness, ungratefulness.To pardon it for its oppressive heat. To pardon it for its malevolent rain.
To pardon everything, everything, everything. Anything and everything!
To pardon the mirrors. To pardon the walls. To pardon exits and entrances. To pardon dead leaves and aphid ridden roses. To pardon termites and vermin. To pardon the chime and the clock. To pardon the seconds. To pardon the minutes. To pardon the hours. To pardon shadows. To pardon others. To pardon myself.....
Each evening, in quiet retrospect, to pardon in gratefulness,
and fashion afresh each morning..
a novel welcome feathered in my heart
2010. You have been a master teacher to me. A trickster and a charm, you were. There are years more deserving of thanks. And so, I - for all the ubiquitous lessons earned, most graciously, thank you for this lesson of "pardon." Goodbye.
I shine besotted to my new word for this new year - PASSION!!
