Morning Sunrise Blessings w/ John O’Donohue

My first sunrise of 2016….throw in a short, cold, Soul Stroll and my day is off to a great start. ☀️

MATINS
I.
Somewhere, out at the edges, the night

Is turning and the waves of darkness

Begin to brighten the shore of dawn.
The heavy dark falls back to earth

And the freed air goes wild with light,

The heart fills with fresh, bright breath

And thoughts stir to give birth to colour.
II.
I arise today
In the name of Silence

Womb of the Word,

In the name of Stillness

Home of Belonging,

In the name of the Solitude

Of the Soul and the Earth.
I arise today
Blessed by all things,

Wings of breath,

Delight of eyes,

Wonder of whisper,

Intimacy of touch,

Eternity of soul,

Urgency of thought,

Miracle of health,

Embrace of God.
May I live this day
Compassionate of heart,

Gentle in word,

Gracious in awareness,

Courageous in thought,

Generous in love.
