October Monday Morning

And you whose spirit is sad and unsure,
try to remember
the very best parts of your life,
the loveliest
feelings in your body self,

occasions of bold delight
and quiet confidence,
moments of unambivalent commitment
and unrestrained joy.

Try to remember when 
you have believed passionately in
something or someone

human or divine.

Try to imagine that
someone now believes in you
because he/she trusts your loveliest feelings
… commitments… confidence… joy.

She goes with us
as we are called forth to go,
with one another, 
evoked by historical memory
and voices audible
only to ears that can hear the
power of God in history.

Her name is Love.
