A Morning Tea Cup Prayer


I rise
as the first hints of morning’s light
begins to unfold from a heavy night
as soft ever changing pink ribbons
paint over a pale egg blue sky
pulling open the shades
from night’s sleepy eyes
light graces my face and hands
as it falls inside my Irish tea cup
God’s love touches its narrow rim
as steam rises up
and pours out this joyful day!

I rise
as light falls upon open waters
now wicking through only thin ice
finding open shores
where sleepy white snow blankets clung
sky falls as the pink fades
into lovely sky waters
open and blue
found only in early twinkling twilights
as the sun bends its mighty rays
pines trees and all earth
become new again in these healing waters!

I rise
for in a single moment
I hold the passing of time
wearing my Irish shamrock locket
I rest awhile
in sacred silent pauses
burning fires through these thin veiled places
I cherish God’s eternal gifting love
surrounding my morning’s cupped hands
and dwelling within my heart’s full cup!

This becomes my simple morning’s tea cup prayer…
