Poem of the Day Banner: Be Open

 

Catherine and Vincent embrace before her bedroom terrace doors, the *morning* light shines through. Vincent has turned his lips to her crown, where we know he whispers "I love you".

 

On Waking

by John O’Donohue

 

I give thanks for arriving
Safely in a new dawn,
For the gift of eyes
To see the World,
The gift of mind
To feel at home in my life.
The waves of possibility
Breaking on the shore of dawn,
The harvest of the past
That awaits my hunger,
And all the furtherings
This new day will bring.
