To the Yes in the Wind--A Poem
A Celebrant looks at the present moment, liminal as it may be, and still says yes.
Change is in the wind.
We sense something
just around the corner
but we’re not sure
what vista might be revealed.
and dreams are often
disturbed with unease and angst
and the impending outcomes are,
at best, opaque.
We are unsettled with the “What if?”s
and the “Should I?”s,
and we are steeping
in a deep vat of just not knowing.
Tucked into this liminal space of Between,
the mounting sense that
a big change is coming.
Is it good or is it bad?
As always, the answer is “yes.”
And in this answer,
a choice to channel gratitude
through this new, unchartered path
of a Beginning.
May we let the marvel
of the moment flow unconstricted.
May we let the wonder
of the not knowing rejuvenate us.
May we remember that it is not
in the “what happens next”
that matters most
but in what we do
with the matters of our “Happens”.
May we seize the Change
that rides in this current wind
and transform it into Soul.
