Benediction

by Wendi White

  • May the dawn break your heart with gladness.
  • May you walk the beach at sunrise early enough to see
  • crabs scurry sideways to their pews,
  • pelicans lift their ponderous forms into the air
  • like a choir rising for an opening hymn.
  • May you witness waves folding themselves in prayer
  • as a platinum splash of sun spills
  • from a stained-glass sky,
  • gathering at the ocean’s edge in communion.
